Wet Form Segment to Account for a Significant Share in the Saudi Arabia Silica Sand Industry

Based on form, wet silica sand is expected to hold a substantial share of the Saudi Arabia silica sand industry owing to its heightened demand in the construction and glass production sector. This demand can be attributed to the high silica content found in wet silica sand and its precise size, distribution, and shape of sand granules, making it feasible for construction, filtration, golf courses, and ceramics production. The growth can also be observed in the frac sand segment, based on type, as it is increasingly used to release natural gas, oil, and natural gas liquids from the pores on rocks. Some of its properties include high resistance to being crushed and a round granule shape, among others.

 

Glass Industry to Augment the Growth of the Saudi Arabia Silica Sand Industry

The glass industry is expected to influence a significant market share in the Saudi Arabia silica sand industry. This growth can be associated with the increasing demand for silica sands in the glass industry from neighbouring countries such as the UAE, where most of the imported silica sand comes from Saudi Arabia. According to a report issued by Glass International dated September 2018, Saudi Arabia has no shortage of high-grade silica through which most of the silica sand demands in the glass industry of the MENA region are met by Saudi Arabia.

 

Silica Sand: Market Segmentation

Silica sand, also known as white sand or quartz sand, comprises two main elements, silicon and oxygen. Silica sand is formulated, when through water and air, quartz is crumbled into tiny granules. It comes in different shades, usually white or colourless, based on the rock residues and the other minerals that make up the resource. Sand material should comprise 95% silicon dioxide and only about 0.6% iron oxide for it to be considered silica sand; otherwise, it is regarded as regular sand. Some of the benefits of silica sand include its worldwide availability, high melting point, high compression strength, and durability, appropriate particle distribution and size, and high elasticity.

Government Initiatives to Increase Solar Power Generation Under the National Renewable Energy Programme Expected to Drive the Saudi Arabia Silica Sand Industry

According to a report published by Arab News, dated April 2021, the country aims to increase the generation capacity of renewable energy to 58.7 gigawatts by 2030, out of which 40 gigawatts would be from solar power as per the National Renewable Energy Programme. Saudi Arabia is ranked 6th globally in its solar energy generation capacity. In this regard, low iron silica sand is preferable in the generation of solar glass, which is expected to provide a thrust to the market's overall growth.

A potential constraint in the industry growth is the sand depletion crisis due to rapidly depleting sand resources worldwide.
