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. Today, silica sand is being used across the world in well diversified applications which include paving roads, glass making, foundry, coal burning boilers, silica filters for oil and water, sand finishes in paints and coatings, etc. During 2015-2019, the global silica sand market grew at a CAGR of around 5.8%. In North America, Latin America and Western Europe, the market is currently being driven by increasing hydraulic fracturing activities that use silica sand as a proppant, while in emerging markets such as India and China, the demand is mainly coming from the foundry and construction industries. This report by Expert Market Research entitled “Silica Sand Market Report and Forecast 2020–2025” provides a comprehensive analysis for anyone who plans to foray into the silica sand market.
