Ambuja Cements Ltd, H.O. POABS GROUP, Thriveni Sand (Thriveni Earthmovers Private Limited), Robo Silicon Private Limited, and Tavara Mines & Minerals, among others, are significant players in the India sand market.
The India sand market is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 6-7% annually in the forecast period of 2022-2027. As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the market is expected to be driven by the growing construction activities.
Due to urbanisation and the rapid population growth, the demand for housing and infrastructure is growing. This is driving the demand for building materials, hence bolstering the utilisation of sand. With the growing pressure on conventional sand sources like river bottoms and protected areas due to supply-demand imbalances, the use of synthetic or manufactured sand is significantly surging.
The introduction of various initiatives by the Indian government to promote the use of manufactured or crushed sand is anticipated to push the market ahead. The demand for silica sand in India is projected to grow on account of its extensive use in various sectors, including glass, paints and coatings, and water filtration, among others. Moreover, the growing focus on monitoring and mapping sand resources to counter their overuse by both governments and international organisations like the United Nation is expected to boost the demand for synthetic sand.
The surging import activities of sand to meet their extensive demand across major end-use sectors is anticipated to favour the market growth. As the Indian government is increasingly investing in infrastructural development activities, the demand for sand is likely to rise. The surging demand for ready-to-eat dry-mix mortar products and fine-grade plaster by consumers is also anticipated to propel the market for sand in India in the coming years.
