Owing to increased construction industry demand, increasing automotive production and sales, per-capita income growth and technological developments, the glass industry is experiencing high growth. In addition, the growth of glass industry, as a result, is driven by emerging developments, including growing use of hybrid guidance, solar control glazing for the automotive and building glass industries, lightweight glazing, and advanced flat glass nanotechnologies. Many countries around the world prefer natural shale gas to minimise their reliance on crude oil. Shale gas is produced by hydraulic drilling, which uses silica sand as an agent. It is projected to rise the market for silica sand by increasing shale gas production. In order to improve the construction industry, future infrastructural projects in several countries are expected to increase the demand of silica sand in various industries.
