Global Barite Industry Research Report 2023-2028 – Substantial Expansion of the Oil and Gas Sectors Propelling Growth

The “Barite Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028” report has been added to’s offering.

DUBLIN, Sept. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The global barite market has made significant strides, reaching a size of US$ 1.8 Billion in 2022. Looking ahead, industry experts anticipate continued growth, with the market poised to reach US$ 2.3 Billion by 2028, reflecting a commendable growth rate (CAGR) of 4.3% during the period from 2023 to 2028.

Barite, a naturally occurring mineral, is characterized by its white or colorless appearance and is composed of barium and sulfate. Within the barite group, one can find anhydrite, celestine, and anglesite. Barite is typically extracted from lead-zinc mines and is found in various forms, including vein, residual, and bedded deposits. While vein and residual deposits are hydrothermal in nature, bedded deposits are of a sedimentary origin.

Barite boasts several advantageous properties, including low solubility, high density, chemical inertness, and cost-effectiveness. It serves a multitude of purposes, such as a weighting agent, filler, and extender in various industries, including oil and gas, chemicals, rubber, plastics, medicine, and pharmaceuticals. Furthermore, it plays a pivotal role in the production of barium carbonate.

One of the key drivers fostering market growth is the substantial expansion of the oil and gas sector, accompanied by the surge in offshore and ultra-deep exploration activities worldwide. Barite’s application as a weighting agent in drilling fluids for oil wells is instrumental in countering the pressure generated during drilling operations.

The increasing adoption of barite in the manufacture of plastic products is another catalyst for market expansion. Barite, being non-toxic, water-soluble, and chemically stable, serves as an ideal chemical filler, enhancing the gloss, strength, and weather resistance of plastic items.

Additionally, rising demand for barite in the production of paints, coatings, rubber products, pharmaceuticals, and automobile components contributes significantly to market growth. Factors such as rapid urbanization and the growing use of barite in the medical industry to absorb X-rays and gamma rays are expected to further drive market expansion.
