Barium Chloride Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Form (Anhydrous, Hydrous (Dihydrate)), By Application (Steel Hardening, Chemical & Industrial applications (Brine purification, Heat Treatment Salts, other Barium salts), Pigments, Fireworks, Wastewater Treatment, Others) Others and Regional Forecast, 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102315 | Status : Ongoing



Barium Chloride is an inorganic compound that is readily soluble in water. It is toxic in nature and imparts yellow-green colour to the flame. Thus, it is used in fireworks but its concentration is limited due to its toxic nature. Commercially, it is majorly manufactured by the reaction of 15–18 wt % barium sulphide solution with 31–32 wt % hydrochloric acid. Also, the reaction of barium sulfide solution with chlorine is of commercial interest. 

On the basis of form, barium chloride market is segmented into anhydrous and hydrous (dihydrate) forms. On the basis of application, barium chloride market is segmented into steel hardening, chemical & industrial (brine purification, heat treatment salts, other barium salts) applications, pigments, fireworks, wastewater treatment and others.

Key Market Driver -

The increasing production of PVC to boost the demand for barium chloride.

Key Market Restraint -

Implementation of Stringent regulations on Hazardous Chemicals.

From a geographical standpoint, the market is categorised into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

Key market Drivers, the world-wide growing demand for the PVC products has compelled the leading manufacturers of PVC to increase their production capacities. Many key PVC manufacturers are coming with new production capacities over the short term forecast that are expected to boost the demand for barium chloride which is used in the production of tin stabilizers. Also, with the increasing importance of wastewater treatment across the globe, the demand for barium chloride is further expected to increase for water treatment application.   

Key market restraints, implementation of stringent regulations on hazardous chemicals is expected to hamper the barium chloride market growth over the forecast period. Barium chloride is used to impart green flame in the fireworks but its use is expected to slow-down with rising awareness. Also, alternatives such as boron carbide are strong substitutes of barium chloride used in the military fireworks.
