Silica Sand Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023
Published: February 4, 2018 Content info: 87 Pages
Description

Silica sand, also known as industrial sand, is one of the most common varieties of sand found in the world. Due to a high silica content, high strength and non-reactive properties of silica sand, it has found well-diversified applications across various industries globally. Some of its applications include water filtration, glass making, industrial casting, sand blasting, adding texture to slick roads, sand finishes in paints and coatings, etc. Although, the demand of commercial silica products declined due to the global economic crisis in 2010, the market however, once again witnessed continuous growth from 2011. In recent years, the demand of industrial silica sand has also increased significantly in the hydraulic fracturing market. According to IMARC Group, the global silica sand market has grown at a CAGR of around 6% during 2010-2017 with the production volume reaching 188 Million Tons in 2017.

IMARC's latest study "Silica Sand Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023" provides a techno-commercial roadmap for setting up a silica sand manufacturing plant. The study, which has been done by one of the world's leading research and advisory firms, covers all the requisite aspects of the silica sand market. This ranges from macro overview of the market to micro details of the industry performance, processing and manufacturing requirements, project cost, project funding, project economics, expected returns on investment, profit margins, etc.

The report has segmented the silica sand market on the basis of five major end-use industries. They include glass, foundry, hydraulic fracturing, filtration and abrasives. Glass currently represents the largest market of the global silica sand consumption in volume terms followed by foundry, hydraulic fracturing, filtration and abrasives. Country-wise, the United States dominates the global silica sand market in terms of production. The United States is followed by Italy, Germany, Turkey and Australia. In terms of consumption, however, the Asia-Pacific region represented the biggest consumer of silica sand followed by North America and Western Europe.
