Strontium, a soft metal with silvery luster is mined from two key ores such as celestine and strontianite. Strontium is also obtained synthetically formed through nuclear reactions, and there are around 16 radioactive isotopes of strontium. Strontium finds its extensive applications in various industries including electrical & electronics, paints & coatings, and personal care. However, paints & coatings are the largest end-user industry of strontium, which drives its market value.

The increasing use of paints & coatings in industries such as aerospace, automotive, construction, and electronics is a major factor driving the global Strontium Market Size. According to a recent research report published by Market Research Future (MRFR), the global Strontium market is expected to witness significant growth by 2030. MRFR also asserts that the market would grow at a substantial CAGR throughout the forecast period (2022-2030).

The market demand is largely influenced by the increasing waterborne recreational activities and global defense expenditure. Furthermore, the growing use of strontium oxide and strontium carbonate as frits in ceramic glazes as a non-toxic alternative to barium and lead is another crucial factor propelling the growth of the market. Besides, increasing uptake of strontium-based glass in cathode ray tube faceplates as it absorbs ultraviolet and x-ray radiation fosters the growth of the market.

On the other hand, stringent regulations regarding controlling mining activities and the reactive nature of strontium would impede the growth of the market during the forecast period. Nevertheless, increasing usages of strontium as a glass modifier in electronic devices to intensify light refraction would support the market growth over the review period.
