According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “North America Silica Sand Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the North America silica sand market size reached US$ 5.7 Billion in 2021. Silica sand, also known as quartz sand or white sand, is a granular material made up of around 95% silicon dioxide (SiO2) and less than 0.6% iron oxide. The material is usually available as tiny granules and is typically formed by the breakdown of quartz particles in the presence of water and air. It is highly durable, compression-resistant, and elastomeric. Based on the rock residues and minerals in the resource, the sand is usually white or colorless. It is widely used as industrial sand when it is high in purity and has closely controlled sizing. This makes silica sand an important component in glass and ceramics manufacturing, paint and coating finishing, sand blasting, personal care, and water purification.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
