Heightened Demand in the Glass Industry to Aid the Market Growth of Silica Sand

The increased demand for silica sand in the glass industry is supporting the growth of the market. This can be attributed to the increased application of glass across industries such as solar panel development. In this regard, the growing government focus on the deployment of solar panels is anticipated to bolster the demand for silica sand, by virtue of it being an essential material in glass production. Furthermore, the increased demand for silica sand in the water treatment and filtration process is also expected to bolster the market growth in the coming years, with the rising consumer demand for water filtration solutions.

 

The Asia Pacific to Provide Lucrative Growth Opportunities for the Market Expansion of Silica Sand

The Asia Pacific region is expected to account for a significant share of the global market for silica sand. This can be associated with the growing expenditure by the governments in infrastructure development activities across the region, spurred by the rising population in countries like India and China. Whole grain silica sand finds usage in the production of flooring, cement mixtures, and asphalt cement mixtures, as it helps enhance the structural integrity of the building.

 

Market Segmentation

Silica sand, commonly known as industrial sand, is one of the most common varieties of sand found in the world. It is mainly composed of silica or silicon dioxide with general impurities such as metal oxides and lime. The high silica content, high strength, and non-reactive properties make it an indispensable constituent in the production of thousands of goods in everyday life.

Rising Demand in the Automotive and Construction Sectors to Spearhead the Market Growth of Silica Sand

Due to increased construction industry demand, increasing automotive production and sales, per-capita income growth, and technological developments, the glass industry is witnessing a significant growth. In addition, the growth of the glass industry is also driven by developments, including the growing use of hybrid guidance, solar control glazing for the automotive and construction glass industries, lightweight glazing, and advanced flat glass nanotechnologies. Furthermore, the growing preference of countries around the world for natural shale gas aimed at minimising their reliance on crude oil is expected to support the market growth in the forecast period. Shale gas is produced by hydraulic drilling, which uses silica sand as an agent. Moreover, the growing investments in infrastructure development activities across countries are expected to increase the demand of silica sand in the coming years.
