Published Date : Dec 2020 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Chemical and Material

The global Barite market size is expected to be worth around US$ 2.07 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Barite market size was valued at US$ 1.54 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% during forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Growth Factors

The market is expected to be driven by rising demand for oil & gas drilling applications. The COVID-19 pandemic is likely to restrict the industry growth in 2020 as oil & gas production is expected to fall drastically in 2020.

Barite is mainly used as a weighting agent in drilling operations owing to its properties, like low abrasiveness, non-corrosive nature, and high specific gravity. The amount of barite used for offshore drilling is greater than that of onshore drilling. The recent trend indicates that oil & gas producers are focused on sustaining oil production as onshore oil resources are being depleted at a significant rate. As a result, oil & gas players are increasingly seeking alternate sources, such as offshore oil resources. This is predicted to benefit market growth.

In the chemical industry, various chemical derivatives of barite, such as carbonates, sulfates, and hydroxides, are significantly used for industrial applications. For instance, barium hydroxide is used in the manufacturing of barium salts of organic acids, which are further used as stabilizers for PVC and additives for lubricating oils.

Barite is also used as a filler in the paint and plastic industries. Furthermore, the product is used in glass manufacturing to enhance the brilliance of glass products by removing impurities. High economic growth in the Asia Pacific driven by rapid industrialization is expected to fuel the growth of the chemicals, plastics, and paints and coatings industries, which, in turn, is expected to boost market growth.

Report Highlights

The oil & gas application segment dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of 77.0% in 2019. Post the COVID-19 crisis, the global oil & gas industry is expected to recover from 2022 and grow at a moderate pace and is expected to reach its peak until 2029, thereby indicating a steady deployment of rigs, particularly in offshore fields. This is likely to drive the demand for drilling fluids, thereby creating a lucrative platform for market growth.

The fillers application segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 4.2%, in terms of revenue, from 2020 to 2027 owing to increasing penetration of the product as a filler in paints and plastics. The rapid growth of the construction sector in emerging economies of Asia Pacific is expected to stimulate the production of paints and coatings and plastics, which, in turn, is likely to foster the demand for fillers, such as barite.

North America dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of 39.5% in 2019. The region is predicted to maintain its lead over the coming years. A significant boost in the production of tight oil, particularly in the U.S., has resulted in a significant demand for the product. Canada is yet another prominent market in the region as there are a number of oil rigs in the country for which barite is largely used for well drilling services.

Asia Pacific is predicted to expand at the fastest CAGR of 4.7%, in terms of revenue, from 2020 to 2027. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), China was the largest producer of barite in the world with production estimated at 2900 kilotons in 2019. Owing to the presence of minimal oil rigs in China, the product demand in China is significantly less as compared to its supply, and therefore China exports most of its barite to other nations, particularly to the U.S.
