Increase in exploration and mining activities:

Globally, barium sulfate with 4.2-specific gravity was used extensively in the oil and gas industry. However, with the announcement of the new grade, exploration and expansion of barium sulfate resources have increased to obtain the product conforming to the alternative specification. This has also resulted in an increase in mining activities at old mines for obtaining barium sulfate of the alternative grade. Moreover, the rise in exploration and mining activities will help in increasing the availability of barium sulfate, which will likely lead to a reduction in prices.

Growing use of barium sulfate in medical applications:

Barium sulfate’s ability to block X-rays and gamma-ray emissions have made it an essential component in medical-grade polymers to block radiations. It is extensively used as aggregate in high-density concrete for radiation shielding around X-ray units in hospitals. Also, the vendors prefer using barium sulfate in medical-grade polymers as it is inexpensive and non-toxic, making it highly suitable for medical purposes.

Rising demand for precipitated barium sulfate:

Globally, there is a growing demand for precipitated barium sulfate owing to its use in various components such as adhesives, industrial paints, coatings, sealants, enamels, and plastics. The properties of barium sulfate including its capability to absorb low oil, high burning point, and non-toxic nature make it an ideal component to be used in paint coatings and plastics. Moreover, it is cost-effective and helps in reducing the production costs for buyers.
