Silica Sand Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022



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 2009, the market however, once again witnessed continuous growth from 2010. 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 2009-2016 with the production volume reaching 179 Million Tons in 2016.
