Introduction | Uses of Barytes | Benefits of Barytes | Barytes Statistics

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 some 2.2Mt in 2015 as a result of low oil prices and reduced drilling activity.  China accounts for around 40% of world production with India, USA, Morocco, Mexico, Iran and Turkey accounting for a further 40%. The USA is still the largest consumer at around 1.9 million tpa currently - down 1.5Mt from 2014.;   followed by the Middle East at 1.65Mt and China 1.45Mt.

Europe consumption (including Norway and Turkey) is around 0.8 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.

World production in 2015 was around 7.5 million tonnes…94% from
