Barites known as “heavy spar”, barytes (also sp. barite) is vital as the weighting agent of choice in oil and gas drilling, its main market. Higher purity grades are also used in chemicals, glass, ceramics, and as filler in plastics, coatings, and rubber. There are relatively few large commercially developed sources worldwide – Pakistan, China, India, Turkey and Morocco dominate supply of drilling grades. Drilling grade consumers are seeking new and alternative sources. Oilfield countries are the main market consumers, with higher purity industrial grades destined for developed manufacturing centers.

Bentonite physical properties permit its use in a range of markets of which the primary ones are foundry, cat litter, iron ore pelletizing, drilling mud and civil engineering, which together account for approximately 80% of sales by volume. Bentonite is produced globally, but just 10 countries account for 85% of world production, with India, USA and China contributing for approximately 80% of the total. Leading global exporters include India, US and Greece, while leading importers include Canada, Germany, Netherlands and Japan.
