Silica Sand Price Trends for the First Half of 2023

The price trends for Silica Sand fluctuated in a very narrow range in the first half of 2023. The Silica Sand market primarily depends on the downstream demands from the construction sector as Silica Sand is majorly utilized as the main structural component in various construction-related processes and in glass, painting, and coating industries.

High global inflation, with Germany undergoing a Recession and two major US banks collapsing, hit the construction sector very severely. As the costs of living skyrocketed, people refrained from investing in construction and buildings too much; as a result, the demands remained in a slump. So, amidst such feeble demands, the Silica Sand prices didn’t have much room to improve. Overall, bearish market sentiments were observed.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the Silica Sand prices are expected to continue behaving in a similar manner since the downstream demands are expected to continue to remain unsettled in the coming months.

Silica Sand contains at least 95% SiO2 and less than 0.6% iron oxide. The most common form of SiO2 is quartz, which is mined from hard rock deposits. It is chemically inert and is often white/colorless. However, the color of each sand deposit depends on the variety of minerals and rock detritus that make up the deposit. The regular/construction sand will also contain SiO2 but less than the 95% mark/level.

Production Process

Quartz is mined from hard rock deposits and then subjected to further processing involving steps like crushing, grinding, sizing, beneficiation, dewatering, and drying. The first stage is to reduce the size of quartz so that it can be processed to remove impurities.

In the second stage, the size is reduced further so that it can be ready for the beneficiation stage where impurities are removed. Impurities like oxides, mica, heavy minerals, etc., are removed via multiple stages of flotation cells and separation screens. The next step involves drying off any excess liquid followed by the final drying stage.
