Properties and Applications

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.

Market Analysis

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.
