Barium carbonate also known as witherite is a chemical compound that is commercially obtained from barium sulfide o treatment with sodium carbonate. It is used in preparing glass, porcelain, ceramics, tiles and other construction material like cement, glaze, enamel and others. Attributed to its property of increasing luster and refractive index of glass it is used in making different types of glass. It is used as fluxing agent to produce matt glazes, clay bricks and ceramic tiles. The increasing adoption of ceramic tiles instead of other conventional floorings is likely to boost the market.
Increase in demand from construction industry is boosting the market growth. Barium carbonate powder is used in manufacturing glaze, enamels, cement, and ceramic materials. The increasing constructional activities worldwide is driving the demand for ceramics, tiles, specialty glass and cement. Additionally, ultra-fine powder of Barium carbonate is used for brine purification. The increasing demand from chemical industries to synthesize other barium derived compounds is anticipated to drive the market.
However, barium sulphate is insoluble in water but due to its solubility in the gastrointestinal tract it is toxic for humans. The poisonous nature of the barium carbonate is likely to hamper the growth of the market.
