Of extensive use, fluorite is widely applied in fields of metallurgy, building materials, fluorine chemical industry, etc. In 2013, global fluorite reserves attained about 240 million tons, mainly distributed in a few countries like South Africa, Mexico, China and Mongolia, wherein China’s fluorite reserves accounted for about 10% of the world's total.

China is the uppermost fluorite producing country in the world with fluorite output approximating 4.3 million tons in 2013, accounting for 64% of the world’s total. However, due to the overquick exploration, fluorite reserves in China become increasingly deficient. Thus the government takes active measures to protect fluorite resources, including execution of fluorite exploration volume limit and industry entry. Especially, after Ministry of Industry and Information Technology released two batches of production line lists in conformity with Fluorite Industry Access Standards successively in 2012 and 2013, fluorite output in China had presented a downward trend. It is estimated that China’s fluorite output will slip to 2.85 million tons in 2016, proportion thereof down to 44.3% or so of the global total.

Against the background of a predicted decreasing fluorite output, China’s fluorite demand will mainly count on fluorite import and technology of fluorine extraction from phosphate. Fluorite equivalent in phosphate ore (by calcium fluoride) in China reached 265.8 million tons, equal to 11 times current fluorite reserves in China, which provides a sound material basis for China’s fluorite substitution. However, it still takes time to realize large-scale fluorite substitution due to immature production process of fluorine extraction from phosphate.
