The global barite market size reached US$ 1.8 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 2.3 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.3% during 2023-2028.
Barite is a white or colorless naturally occurring mineral composed of barium and sulfate. The barite group consists of anhydrite, celestine and anglesite and is commonly extracted from lead-zinc mines in vein, residual and bedded deposit variants. The vein and residual deposits are hydrothermal, whereas the bedded deposits are sedimentary deposits. Barite exhibits various advantageous properties, such as low solubility, high density, chemical inertness and cost-effectiveness. It is used as a weighting, filler and extender agent and as a crucial ingredient to manufacture barium carbonate. As a result, it finds extensive applications across various industries, such as oil and gas, chemical, rubber, plastic, medical and pharmaceutical.
Significant growth in the oil and gas industry, along with increasing offshore and ultra-deep exploration activities across the globe, is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Barite is used as a weighing agent in oil well drilling fluids as it counters the pressure resulting from drilling operations. Moreover, the widespread adoption of barite for the manufacturing of plastic products is also driving the market growth. It is used as a non-toxic, water-soluble and stable chemical filler to enhance the gloss, strength and weatherability of plastic products. Additionally, the rising product demand for the production of paints, coating, rubbers, pharmaceuticals and automobile components, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Rapid urbanization, along with increasing product utilization in the medical industry to absorb X- and Gamma rays, are some of the factors that are anticipated to drive the market further.
