The global barite market was valued at $1.4 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $2.4 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2020 to 2027.

Barite is comprised of barium sulphate is a common mineral used by oil & gas companies in their drilling activities. It is used in the drilling fluids to maintain the pressure in the well during drilling and to prevent the influx of unwanted fluids from the formation. It is also used as a filler, extender, or weighting agent in products such as paints, plastics, and rubber.

The barite market is mainly driven by its growing consumption in oil & gas drilling industry. According to the U.S. Department of the Interior and U.S. Geological Survey, drilling activity accounts for around 90.0% of global barite consumption. Increase in crude oil and petrochemical consumption across various industries such as transportation, plastics, and paints & coatings has surged oil & gas exploration activities in offshore sites. In addition, rise in investment in deep and ultra-deep offshore exploration activities is expected to further augment the market growth during the forecast period.

Furthermore, increase in supply-demand gap on account of unstable political conditions in the Middle East and North Africa drives exploration activities in Eastern Europe and North America, which in turn is expected to have a positive impact on the global barite market. Large sea shores possessed by various countries have driven efforts toward offshore oilfield excavations, which is likely to drive the growth of the market in coming years. In addition, barite is also used in automobile brake and clutch pads, automobile paint primer for metal protection and gloss, use as a weighting agent in rubber, and in the cement jacket around underwater petroleum pipelines. In the metal-casting industry, barite is part of the mold-release compounds. Because barite significantly blocks x-ray and gamma-ray emissions, it is used as aggregate in high-density concrete for radiation shielding around x-ray units in hospitals, nuclear powerplants, and university nuclear research facilities. Ultrapure barite is used as a contrast medium in x-ray and computed tomography examinations of the gastrointestinal tract. Owing to growth of consumption of barite across the different end-use industries is expected to surge the demand for barite during the forecast period.

However, factors such as substitution of barite for other minerals are expected to hinder the growth of the barite market. In addition, untapped oil reserves in emerging oil-producing regions such as Africa and the Pacific Ocean, therefore, offer lucrative opportunities to the players manufacturing barite-based weighting agents used in the oil & gas industry. This is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the barite market to grow in the near future.

The global barite market is segmented on the basis of form, grade, color, deposit type, end-use industry, and region. Based on form, the market is categorized into lumps and powder. By grade, it is divided into up to grade 3.9, grade 4.0, grade 4.1, grade 4.2, grade 4.3, and grade above 4.3. Based on color, it is divided into white & off-white, grey, brown, and others. By deposit type, it is divided into residual, bedding, vein, and cavity filling. Based on end-use industry, it is divided into oil & drilling, paints & coatings, pharmaceuticals, rubber & plastics, textiles, adhesives, and others. Region wise, the smart polymers market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Some of the major players analyzed in this report are Chinchana Group, Demeter O&G Supplies SN BHD, KIA Energy Company Ltd., NHAT HUY Group, General Electric, Ashapura Group, Halliburton, Sibelco, Schlumberger, and Sojitz Corporation.

COVID-19 Analysis:

  • The demand for barite is expected to experience a downfall due to decline in production activities of the end-use industries, due to disrupted supply chain amid the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.

  • The production of barite is likely to hamper during and after the lockdown due to unavailability of workers. According to the UNIDO, 30.0-70.0% of pre-COVID-19 workforce of the mining sector has migrated back to their hometowns due to uncertainties and loss of income during the lockdown. This unavailability or less availability of workforce will directly affect the annual production of barite.
