The region currently represents the worlds largest producer of silica sand. Silica sand is used in many commercial processes and products, thereby commonly classified based on its industrial application. The sand is evaluated for industrial usage based on its composition and physical properties such as granular size, shape, hardness, resistance to heat, etc. The chemical composition of the silica sand, including high silica content and non-reactive properties, is of paramount importance in the glass making industry, whereas grain angularity and hardness are important parameters for sandblasting. Apart from this, silica sand is a popular material used in construction, water filtration, sand casting, hydraulic fracturing, abrasive as well as in the concrete industry.
The growing construction industry in North America has resulted in rising investments in high-end infrastructure development. The increasing demand for silica sand in manufacturing various building materials is primarily catalyzing the market growth. Moreover, the growing awareness towards various mechanical benefits of silica sand has propelled its usage in the production of fiberglass. Furthermore, the rising product demand for providing grain strength and refractoriness in glass-based automotive components, is also driving the market. Additionally, the introduction of advanced nanotechnology in flat glass and solar control glazing in building glass has increased the usage of silica sand. Besides this, the rising adoption of glass-based solar panels and photovoltaic modules is further augmenting the market growth. Apart from this, the growing oil and gas production activities in North America has propelled the demand of silica sand in hydraulic fracturing. The increasing number of active oil rigs along with the wide presence of natural gas fields in the region is also driving the market. Moreover, the rising adoption of silica sand for high porosity, desired gravity, and acid solubility, in water treatment plants is further catalysing the demand.
