The demand for barite increases sharply with the oil price, mainly because the demand for barite is 1 ton for every 30 meters of drilling, and the consumption accounts for almost half of the output of barite powder.

It has the advantages of insoluble in water, high density, good filling, non-toxic, easy to absorb, etc. it has a high proportion of barite demand in chemical industry, petroleum, building materials, medicine and other industries.
