The global Silica Sand market produced a volume of 361 MMT in 2021. The industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 3% in the forecast period of 2022-2027 to manufactured a volume of about 442.3 MMT by 2027.

The global Silica Sand industry report gives a comprehensive analysis of the industry, including key segments, trends, drivers, restraints, the competitive landscape, and other essential market aspects. The extensive application of the product in the glass industry is driving the market demand. The Asia Pacific is the highest category spender by region, driving the need for the Silica Sand industry.

Industry Definition and Segmentation

Industrial sand or silica sand is mainly silica or silicon dioxide, with minor impurities like metal oxides and lime was thrown in for good measure. It is an essential component in creating hundreds of everyday items due to its favourable features, such as strength, high silica content, and resistance to heat and chemical reactions; silica sand is utilised in various applications. The Silica Sand industry report comprises segments by application (Glass Industry, Foundry, Hydraulic Fracturing, Filtration, Abrasives, Chemical Production, Others) and region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, and South America).

The Asia Pacific Regions are Driving the Growth of the Industry

The Asia Pacific holds a significant share in the industry; this can be attributed to the governments' increasing investment in infrastructure development efforts across the region, fueled by the rising population in nations like India and China. Because whole grain silica sand is used to create flooring, cement mixes, and asphalt cement mixtures because it contributes to the building's structural stability, the market is likely to propel.

The industry is being driven by the employment of the product in glass manufacturing. Furthermore, the rising use of glass in sectors like solar panel manufacturing is due to the increased government focus on the deployment of solar panels. In addition, with growing consumer demand for water filtration solutions, the high need for silica sand for water treatment and filtration process is boosting the industry demand. The usage of speciality glass in the renowned electronics sector in industrialised nations such as South Korea and Japan is likely to impact the market positively.

Best Procurement Practices

The global Silica Sand industry report by Procurement Resource gives an in-depth analysis of the best buying practices followed by major global Silica Sand regions across the globe, such as engagement models, contract terms, and buyer and supplier negotiation levers, among others.

Category Management Studies

After washing and cleaning the clay, some more extensive waste sand must be sieved away, with the under-screen sand going to the following gravity separation machine. The most frequent used silica sand separation machine is a shaking table and spiral chute separator for primary silica sand gravity separation to remove heavy minerals such as ilmenite, hematite, iron, etc. After gravity separation of silica sand, there will still be some magnetic minerals in the sand, which must be removed using a magnetic separator. After eliminating magnetic materials, you'll need to sieve out the desired size of silica sand, which you may do with a high-frequency vibration screen or a PU screen. After screening the final silica sand, the sand is dried in a machine.

Developments in the Product, Further Boosting the Procurement of Silica Sand

The industry is aided by the growing demand for glass from end-user industries like construction and automobile. Furthermore, advances such as the expanding usage of hybrid guiding, solar control glazing for the automotive and construction glass sectors, lightweight glazing, and sophisticated flat glass nanotechnologies are propelling the glass industry. In addition, the rising preference of nations across the world for natural shale gas to reduce their dependency on crude oil is further augmenting the sector. Other factors such as increasing per-capita income and technical advancements further the industry's expansion.

The regional markets for the industry can be divided into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.

Key Industry Players Mentioned in the Silica Sand Industry Report

  • SCR-Sibelco N.V.
  • Mitsubishi Corporation
  • U.S. Silica

Market Landscape

The market for silica sand is somewhat consolidated. Due to the vast number of manufacturers, the worldwide silica sand market is fragmented. A few significant competitors currently dominate the industry in terms of market share.

Key Initiatives by Companies

  • U.S. Silica Holdings stated in January 2019 that it had obtained a former ceramic proppant factory in Millen, Georgia, which will be repurposed into a high-end product manufacturing facility for the company's Industrial and Specialties Products (ISP) business.
  • At its annual stakeholder's conference in April 2019, Sibelco, one of the leading participants, revealed a healthy revenue rise in the first quarter. This backs up the company's projection that the COVID-19 epidemic will be over by early 2021.
