Strontium Market Analysis

Over the next five years, the strontium market is expected to register a CAGR of over 5%.

The COVID-19 epidemic had a negative impact on the strontium market. Coronavirus-related mass quarantines harmed the electronics, paints, and coatings industries. However, during that time, the medical and dental industries were the only ones to benefit. Nonetheless, the market has begun to expand in recent years and is expected to continue on this path in the coming years.

  • In the short term, the market that was looked at is thought to be mostly driven by the growing demand for paints and coatings.Also, more people are building homes in Asia-Pacific countries, which is likely to increase market demand over the next few years.
  • On the other hand, the risk of explosions and fires that come with strontium is likely to slow the growth of the market.
  • It is expected that strontium nitrate will be used more in the chemical, marine, and defense industries, which will be good for the market in question.
  • Asia-Pacific is likely to dominate the market through the forecast period owing to the growing consumption in countries such as China, India, and Japan.

Strontium Market Trends

Paints and Coatings Segment to Dominate the Market

  • Strontium is used in the paint and coatings industry in the form of strontium sulfate. The chemically inert powder known as strontium sulfate is white, odorless, and non-hazardous. It improves the performance of liquid paint and powder coatings by acting as a pigment extender (filler).
  • Also, it offers enhanced film coverage, superior mechanical qualities, and exceptional salt, fog, and UV resistance, among other things. It is primarily utilized in plastics, liquid paints, powder coatings, etc.
  • The Worlds Paint and Coatings Industry Association estimated that in 2022, there would be a USD 180 billion global market for paints and coatings.By 2027, the paints and coatings industry is predicted to have a CAGR of around 3%.
  • According to the association's annual report, the value of the North American market was USD 33.92 billion in 2022, while the value of the European market was USD 42.37 billion. It is believed that an increase in residential renovation projects in Canada, Germany, and the United States is what caused each of these regions to grow independently.
  • Europe, with its four largest mainland economies-Germany, France, Italy, and Spain-is home to a plethora of large paint businesses. Germany is Europe's major coatings provider and market for paints and coatings. It is home to over 300 coatings, paint, and printing ink production firms.
  • The key firms in the paints and coatings sector were also included in the WPCIA report, along with their market shares. It was anticipated that Sherwin Williams (USD 21.64 billion) would dominate the market, followed by PPG Industries, Inc. (USD 17.15 billion), Akzo Nobel NV (USD 11.9 billion), and Nippon Paint Holdings Co., Ltd. (USD 9.95 billion).
  • All of these things will cause more money to be invested in different industries, which will increase the demand for paints and coatings from all over the world and help the strontium market.

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

  • The Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for strontium owing to the production and consumption of various end products of strontium such as paints and coatings, personal care products, electrical and electronic equipment, and many more.
  • The Asia-Pacific paints and coatings market was expected to be worth USD 63 billion in 2022, according to the World's Paint and Coatings Industry Association. China dominates the region's market, which has been rising at a CAGR of 5.8% over the last few years. In 2022, the Chinese market will have grown by 5.7%. According to current trends, China's total sales of paints and coatings will exceed USD 45 billion in 2022, giving the country a 78% market share in East Asia.
  • Also, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to see the most growth in construction in China, followed by India.China's government has been giving more money to build affordable housing to meet the rising demand for housing.In India, the infrastructure sector has emerged as one of the government's primary focus areas.
  • China's building industry is expanding at a rapid pace. According to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, construction output in China was valued at around CNY 276 billion (USD 40 billion) in the fourth quarter of 2022, representing a 50% increase over the previous quarter (USD 27.6 billion).
  • Also, the overall investment in the construction sector was predicted to be around 66,990 billion yen (USD 508,16 billion) in 2022, up roughly 0.6% from the previous year, according to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism (MLIT) of Japan.
  • So, all of these building projects and government actions are likely to increase the number of building projects in the country, which is expected to increase the need for paints and coatings.
  • Apart from this, strontium plays a major role in the personal care and electrical and electronics industries as well. China is one of the largest and fastest-growing pharmaceutical markets in the world. According to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, in August 2022, the retail sales figure in China amounted to about CNY 51.92 billion (USD 7.5 billion). Also, the cosmetics and personal care segment of India accounts for about 51% of the total FMCG sector of the country.

Since many industries want to grow in the Asia-Pacific region, strontium use is also expected to rise over the next five years.
