Sand refers to a cluster of fine rock particles composed of numerous minerals, primarily quartz and feldspar fragments and small fossil fragments. It is formed by the weathering and erosion of inland and marine rock particles, bio-organisms and organic by-products. It is a natural resource that is found abundantly across ocean and sea beaches, riverbanks and riverbeds in varying sizes and compositions. The grain sizes of sand are finer than gravel but coarser than silt. In India, natural sand is commonly mined from waterbody beds, especially rivers, for industrial applications. It is extensively utilized for diverse applications in manufacturing, construction, flooring and home decoration.

India Sand Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the increasing product demand in the construction industry. This can be attributed to the expansion of the residential segment in India due to the rapid population shift in urban areas. Besides this, the growing environmental concerns regarding riverbed mining for natural sand have led to a higher uptake of manufactured sand, which, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Favorable government initiatives supporting the usage of manufactured sand over natural sand due to an enhanced focus on sustainable development are also providing an impetus to the market. In addition to this, the growing adoption of silica sand for manufacturing standard and specialty glasses is further providing a boost to the market across the country. Some of the other factors that are contributing to the market growth include the growing number of infrastructural development projects, the increasing utilization of silica sand for obtaining shale gas, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players.
