Global Silica Sand Market to Reach 256 Million Tons by 2024

Silica sand, also referred to as industrial sand, is one of the most common varieties of sand found across the world. Occurring in both crystalline and amorphous forms, it represents an indispensable component in the production of numerous products. Due to a number of physical and chemical properties of silica sand such as high silica content, high strength and non-reactive properties, it is today being used all around the world in a number of industries.



One of the recent applications of silica sand has been in the hydraulic fracturing process where its demand has increased considerably. Other applications include glass making, paving roads, silica filters for oil and water, foundries and coal burning boilers, sand finishes in paints and coatings, etc. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the global silica sand market reached a volume of 202 Million Tons in 2018 and is further expected to reach 256 Million Tons by 2024.
