Global barium nitrate market is estimated to reach $3,923 million by 2024; growing at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2016 to 2024. Barium nitrate, Ba(NO3)2 is a salt composed of barium and the nitrate ion. Barium nitrate is normally a white solid at room temperature. It is soluble in water, and similar to other soluble barium compounds, is toxic. Barium nitrate occurs naturally as the very rare mineral nitrobarite. Barium nitrate could be manufactured by two processes. The first process requires a heated solution of sodium nitrate which is combined with barium chloride, resulting in separation of barium nitrate crystals from the mixture. In the second process, it requires dissolving small lumps of barium carbonate in nitric acid, letting iron impurities to precipitate, then filter, evaporate, and crystallize. Barium nitrate properties makes it fit for use in various military applications, including incendiary ammunition and thermite grenades.
Global Barium Nitrate Market Size and Forecast, 2015 – 2024 (US$ Million)
The global barium nitrate market is mainly driven by the growing demand from the fireworks/pyrotechnics industry accompanied by their increasing use in military applications across the globe.
