Barium Carbonate Price Trend and Forecast

Barium Carbonate Regional Price Overview

Get the latest insights on price movement and trend analysis of Barium Carbonate in different regions across the world (Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa)


Barium Carbonate Price Trend for the Q1 of 2024


The the APAC region, the barium carbonate market was observed to be largely inclined throughout the given span of Q1'24.  Shutdowns of major production units in Chinese provinces led to a reduced supply of raw materials and reduced supply inflow in the regional markets. This disrupted the market's supply-demand balance and favored the stabilization of barium carbonate prices after the dull last quarters.

Market demadns in the first half of the quarter were not that positively inclined in the Chinese markets. However, as the trade movements started regularizing and stabilizing in the domestic markets, the demands also uptick, especially in the latter half. In the Indian market, however, the price trend was found to be strained between upstream costs and downstream demands. Overall, mixed market sentiments were witnessed.


In the European barium carbonate markets, the prices were mostly riddled with trade uncertainties and bearish demands. The inclined upstream costs with surging crude oil prices fueled the suppliers' worry and pushed the market rates up. At the same time, the dull domestic demands humbled down the market a little, especially in the early days of the quarter. In the second half of the quarter, however, the market started stabilizing a little as the domestic demands also started resuming. It had already been three years since the beginning of the Russian war; the region had figured out the ways and trade routes to work around it. Overall, varying price trajectory was observed.

North America

The barium carbonate market showcased suitable growth in its prices during the first quarter of 2024; the construction and manufacturing sectors were projecting suitable demands for barium carbonate suppliers. The raw material costs and production charges were already high in the international markets. With demands inclined the price trend also got positively anchored throughout the said period. Amidst a rising EV sector, the demand outlook was optimistic for the majority of the given span. Overall, an increasing price trail was witnessed.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resources, the barium carbonate prices are likely to humble down a little in the coming months. The market is experiencing a supply excess, which is likely to push down the current price curve.

Barium Carbonate Price Trend for the October - December of 2023

Barium Carbonate is a compound, extensively used in the glass and ceramics industries. The barium carbonate production process involves barium sulfide and sodium carbonate (soda ash); thus, their price trend align with each other. During the final quarter of the year 2023, the barium carbonate price trend witnessed a merged trajectory.

Prices were found to be depreciating in the former half of the quarter from October to November, while an inclination in the price trend was observed in the second half of the quarter, from November to December of 2023. High inventory levels drove these market trend initially, as the demands were dull throughout the entire period.

Barium Carbonate Price Trend for July - September of 2023

Barium carbonate has the ability to act as a flux in the ceramics industry. In addition to this, in the glass manufacturing sector, it enhances optical clarity and reduces the percentages of impurities. The compound also possesses significant toxicity and thus is a popular ingredient in the production of rodenticides. Because of its ability to neutralize acidic solutions, it is a versatile material that finds application in a wide range of chemical processes.

Its industrial applications thus dictated its price trend in the third quarter of 2023. During this phase, the prices of crude oil rose by a significant margin and thus raised the cost of production of barium carbonate. Thus, the barium carbonate price analysis showcases a fluctuating trend amid the oscillating demand scenario from the downstream ceramics and related sectors and rising environmental concerns about the mining of barium metal.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price of Barium Carbonate is estimated to trace an uncertain path amid the oscillating demand from the downstream industries and environmental restrictions on the mining and oil extraction activities.

Barium Carbonate Price Trend for First Half of 2023

Barium carbonate is an alkaline metal carbonate with poor solubility in water and most acids. The most common procedure for the synthesis of barium carbonate in industries is through the reaction of barium sulfide and sodium carbonate. Thus, they are the major influencing factor in determining the price trend of barium carbonate. Most of the regions use barite ore as the source of barium metal, whose sales rose exponentially in the Asia Pacific market, benefiting the traders heavily in the first and second quarters of 2023.

In addition to this, the demand from the EV sector also fluctuated in the first quarter but showcased a stable trend in the second quarter. In North America, financial constraints on the market because of the failure of two major banks depreciated the market momentum and, in turn, negatively affected the price trend of barium carbonate.

Analyst Insight

According to procurement resources, the price trend of Barium Carbonate is expected to show fluctuations globally as the demand from end-user industries and the cost of feedstock materials seems uncertain.

About Barium Carbonate

Barium carbonate is a white colored, odorless powder that is majorly employed as a flux in glass and ceramics industry. As a flux, it helps in lowering the melting point of mixture and also enhances its properties. It's also employed in electronics for cathode ray tubes, pyrotechnics for green fireworks, and as a contrast agent in medical imaging. Additionally, it serves in oil wells to inhibit scale formation, and in specialty chemical manufacturing, but caution is necessary due to its toxicity.
