The extensive usage of barium nitrate in firecrackers and explosives is the major driver of its price trend. In India, in order to curb the rising pollution figures and growing concerns about the toxicity of barium, the Supreme Court announced a ban on the usage of this compound.

This caused a striking decline in the procurement rates of barium nitrate by the downstream industries, and eventually, its price trend also took on a downward journey in the last two quarters of 2023. Further, the additional challenges of obtaining barium and stricter environmental regulations on mining activities, not only in Asian countries but around the globe, also constricted the supply chains, which eventually degraded the overall sentiments and momentum of the barium nitrate market as well as its price trend.

Production Processes

  • Production of Barium Nitrate from Barium Carbonate

Two processes begin with barium carbonate to produce barium nitrate. The first step is to dissolve barium carbonate in nitric acid, allowing any iron impurities to precipitate before filtering, evaporateing, and crystallising. The second method involves combining barium sulphide and nitric acid to produce barium nitrate.
