Global Barite Market | Size, Share, Trends & Industry
Forecast (2025)
Baryte or barite is a white or colorless mineral and is a major source of barium.
The barite group consists of anhydrite, baryte, celestine, and anglestite. Barite
can be commonly found in the lead-zinc veins in limestones and are deposited
through wide range of processes including, evaporation, hydrothermal, and
biogenic, among others. It is an industrial mineral that contains 34.3% sulfate
and 65.7% barium oxide when in pure form. The properties such as low
solubility, high density, chemical inertness, and low cost makes barite an
essential industrial mineral, with high demand in the oil and gas, paint and
coatings, and pharmaceutical industries.
Growing demand for oil and gas throughout the globe is the major factor driving
growth of the global barite market. Oil and gas accounts for the largest user of
barite, owing to its property as a weighing agent for drilling fluids. Growing
demand for oil and gas in the emerging economies so as to become energy
sufficient, is fueling growth of the oil and gas industry, in turn, augmenting
demand for barite. According to the International Energy, the global energy
demand is set to increase from 268 mboe/d in 2013 to 399 mboe/d by 2040.
Moreover, increasing demand for barite in the paints and coating and
pharmaceutical industries, is further expected to fuel growth of the barite
market. Furthermore, the low oil absorption and high brightness of barite makes
it desirable to be used in the pigments of paints and coatings for automobiles
and consumer goods. Hence, the growing automobile industry also contributes
to growth of the global barite market.
