Market Overview

Silica sands or other derivatives of silica are the essential raw materials for glassmaking and a wide range of other industrial and construction applications. With the advancement of technology silica has been now used for many typical applications such as aerospace, military and precision automotive parts. Further, the range of silicon-based chemical products uses silica is expanded to reach food processing, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. Also, silica is widely used in the production of phosphoric acid for the fertilizer industry. North America is the largest producer of silica with approximately 63.7 million metric tons of production annually. The United States foundry industries average consumption for the 2016 was 0.91 million tons which represents 15% of the US production. Further uses of silica sand in the United States comprise whole grain silica for building products, abrasive, ceramic, bricks, tile, etc. which accounts for 28.6% of the total silica production in the United States and about 7.3% of global silica production. However, regulatory developments across the globe may affect suppliers and global silica market. For instance, in the US, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has halved the acceptable exposure limit for respirable crystalline silica. On the other hand, in Western Europe the European Commission pronounced in December 2015 that it had grown region wide recycling targets, with 75% of glass projected to be recycled by 2030. Both the more strict silica dust exposure limit and the European Union’s glass recycling targets are anticipated to have a modest adverse impact on demand.

The growth is majorly attributed to the growing demand for silica products in new industries such as Cosmetics, aviation and pharmaceutical industries.
