Silica sand, also known as industrial sand, white sand, or quartz sand. This sand is made up of two major elements such as silica and oxygen. The silica sand is used in a number of applications such as in the industrial and commercial industries, from golf courses to glassmaking. It is a consumer and commercial product that is widely available throughout the globe. Nodaway’s silica sand has been widely used in industries such as water filtration industry, abrasives industry, casting industry, glassware industry and many others. It is also used for manufacturing of various ceramic products. It is mixed with clay to produce tableware and sanitary ware.
Increasing use of silica sand in applications such as glass making, paving roads, coal burning boilers, and foundries, industrial casting, oil and water filtration, sandblasting, and many others is major driving factor behind the growth of the global silica sand market. Likewise, factors such as increasing demand for silica sand from the glass industry, a surge in the demand from the construction market, growing automotive production and sales, ongoing technological advancements and rising per capita income are expected to improve growth of the market in the coming years. Nevertheless, possible harmful effects of silica sand is major restraining factor that could hamper the growth of the market.
