Market Insights

Market Research Future has published its report on the global barite market which is expected to witness a healthy CAGR during the forecast period of 2022-2030. The market is driven primarily by growing oil & gas activities in light of the massive demand for fuel.

A naturally occurring, non-toxic mineral deposit, barite exhibits various properties which make it ideal for use in oil & gas drilling, in the analysis of oxygen & sulfur isotopic, as a filler in paint & plastics, in automobile finishes for corrosion resistance, and several others ranging across several end-use industries. Increasing commercialization and urbanization, particularly in emerging markets, the automotive sector, among others is growing at a rapid pace and is expected to increase demand for barium amongst industries. Moreover, oil & gas activities are growing rapidly due to the high demand for fuel.

The availability of various substitutes such as iron ore, hematite, and celestite are expected to hinder market growth due to their reduced prices and the fact that some of these can be synthetically produced. However, barite is still the most preferred material in oil & gas applications which is expected to encourage market growth. Moreover, its applications in the absorption of x-rays and gamma rays make it useful in the medical sector as well as to make special containers to store radioactive materials which are likely to encourage market expansion.
