World production is broadly linked to oil-well drilling activity and has increased from 6.0- 6.5Mtpa in the early 2000s to 9.7Mt in 2014 - but fell to 8Mt in 2015 and to 7.3Mt in 2016 as a result of low oil prices and reduced drilling activity.  China accounts for just over 40% of world production with India, Morocco, USA, Turkey, Russia, Mexico, Iran, Kazakhstan and  Thailand accounting for around 50%. The USA was only the second largest consumer at around 1.6 million tpa in 2016 - down nearly 2Mt from 2014.;   the Middle East used  1.7Mt and China 1.5Mt.

Europe consumption (including Norway and Turkey) is around 0.6 million tpa of which some 2/3 is sourced domestically. Some 70% of the production is into added-value markets so a significant proportion is an export earner, and a higher proportion of the oil-well industry requirement imported. Germany, Bulgaria and UK account for over 90% of the EU-27 output.
