Barium Nitrate Price Trend

The pandemic had a significant impact on major industries and economies, including the barium nitrate market. The implementation of nationwide lockdowns resulted in the closure of factories and businesses, as well as disruptions in raw material transportation. It had an impact on global production and supply chain management of goods and services. Furthermore, pyrotechnics such as crackers and explosives have been banned in several economies to assist COVID patients suffering from breathing problems. In the final quarter of 2021, the price of barium nitrate witnessed an upward trajectory, with an average price of 669 USD/MT.

About Barium Nitrate:

Barium nitrate is an inorganic compound.  It's colourless, poisonous, and water-soluble, like other barium salts. It is an oxidizer that burns with a green flame and is often used in pyrotechnics.

Chemical Formula:

  • Ba(NO3)2


  • Nitrobarite
  • Nitric acid, barium salt
  • Barium dinitrate

Molecular Weight:

  • 261.33 g/mol

Industrial Uses:

  • Oxidizing/Reducing Agent
  • Propellants
  • Blowing agents

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.
