  • Strontium is a silvery-white alkaline earth metal that turns yellow when exposed to air. Found right below calcium in the periodic table, this metallic element is softer than calcium and is extremely volatile. Prior to World War I, over 100,000 tons of strontium hydroxide were used each year in the sugar crystallization process of the beet sugar industry, making it the first large-scale application of strontium. Now, strontium compounds have applications in many end-user industries, including the firework industry, toothpaste industry, and magnet industry.

    According to Researcher, the global strontium market is expected to witness growth at a considerable rate during the forecast period. The major factors responsible for the global strontium market's growth would be increasing demand from various end-user industries like paints and coatings and the ceramic industry. While 5% of the total produced strontium is used in fireworks, most of the strontium produced is being consumed by the above-mentioned industries post-downfall ofCRT based color televisions that accounted for as much as 75% of the world strontium consumption previously. Strontium also has applications in the medical sector, especially in dental and personal care products, thereby making another significant contributionto this market's growth. One of the popular toothpaste brands contains about 10% of strontium chloride hexahydrate by total weight. However, the COVID-19 pandemic, strontium’s effect on health, and technological advancements, consequently replacing strontium-based products, are likely to challenge the strontium market. For instance, strontium was primarily used in glass for color television cathode ray tubes, preventing X-ray emission. This particular strontium application has been declining because other display methods are replacing CRTs.

    Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the largestmarket for global strontium,expanding at a faster rate than other regions, owing toits population-drivendemand from the medical & dental sector and infrastructure & construction sector. Investmentsin research projects and scope for innovative applications shall aid in this region's dominance.

    The global strontium market is highly fragmented.

    Major players

    in the market were found to be Solvay, ABASSCO, Hebei Xinji Chemical Group, Noah Technologies Corporation, Nanjing Jinyan Strontium Industry, and Xiamen Yuxiang Magnetic Materials Technology, among others.

    Solvay SA, one of the leading producers of barium and strontium compounds, is exploring a sale of two units as Chief Executive Officer Ilham Kadri is looking forward to streamlining the Belgian chemical maker, one of which is a unit that works with the compound strontium carbonate, which could fetch around EUR 150 million.

    A South Korean research team from the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute has developed a new technology that enables the rapid tracking of radioactive contaminants in the seawater by measuring the quantity of Strontium-90. The new technology was developed amid growing concerns over the Japanese government’s pending decision to release Strontium-90 rich contaminated water being stored at the Fukushima nuclear power plant into the sea. This technology is over 10 times faster compared to the current precipitation method-based detection, taking only two days to produce the analysis results.
