About Barium Sulfate Market

Barium sulfate is an inorganic compound with low solubility in water, used as a contrast agent for diagnostics purposes and X-ray imaging. It is also used as an indirect additive in food contact substances such as polymers or other packaging material. Also, barium sulfate is used in oil and gas production as an ingredient in drilling fluids.

One of the emerging market trends is the introduction of a new barium sulfate grade. Conventionally, barium sulfate with a specific gravity of 4.2 was used as a weighting agent in drilling fluids. Since 2010, the American Petroleum Institute has issued an alternative grade of barium sulfate of 4.1-specific gravity for use in drilling fluids as it meets the chemical and sizing requirements for drilling activities in the oil and gas industry. Additionally, the introduction of a new grade of barium sulfate has also provided an additional option for buyers, driving the growth of the market in terms of volume.
