Barium carbonate is a heavy, odourless, white to cream coloured chemical with the chemical formula BaCO3. It is the most important chemical amongst the barium chemicals and is sold commercially in granular, powder or high?purity form. Barium carbonate is thermally very stable and does not readily disassociate unless some carbon source is available in the atmosphere. It finds its application in a wide variety of industries, however, its use in the manufacturing of CRT television glass represents the largest market for barium carbonate. During 2009-2016, the global barium carbonate market grew at a CAGR of around 8%. Its global demand is currently experiencing the fastest growth in construction materials (particularly ceramic tiles, glass, bricks and glazes) due to increasing construction activities and the growth of the real estate sector.
