Silica Sand Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024

The global silica sand market was worth around US$ 7.4 Billion in 2018, registering a CAGR of around 7.6% during the year 2011-2018. The market is further projected to reach US$ 10.5 Billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of nearly 6% over the forecast period. Silica sand, generally known as industrial sand, is one of the most common varieties of sand found across the world. Industrial silica sand has been mined for thousands of years and was first put to industrial use during 3000-5000 BC for metallurgical and glass making activities. Nowadays, silica sand is being used for well diversified applications including paving roads, glass making, foundries and coal burning boilers, oil and water filtration, industrial casting, sand blasting, etc. Apart from this, it is also used in the hydraulic fracturing process where the demand for silica sand has increased significantly in the recent years. This can be accredited to the advantageous properties of silica sand such as strength, high silica content, as well as resistance to heat and chemical reactions.

Global Silica Sand Market Report

Global Silica Sand Market Drivers:

  • The glass market is experiencing high growth due to increased demand from the construction market, rising automotive production and sales, mounting per capita income, and technological advancements.
