Silica Sand is well-sorted, well-rounded, sand containing almost pure quartz, or silicon dioxide industrial silica sand. It is the most widely used sand which is produced by either crushing sandstone or reserved from natural occurring places, such as river beds and beaches. It is widely used in applications such as golf courses & sports fields, industrial abrasives, water filtration, glassmaking, paints & coatings, ceramics & refractories, and construction materials applications
The presence of well-established glass industry across the Europe is major driving factor behind the growth of the market in the region. In addition, rapid growth in the region’s mining industry is further expanding the growth of the market in the region. Europe region is rich in natural resources and the supply and extraction of minerals remain to play an important role in the European society and economy. Minerals are used in everyday life, as construction materials such as gravel, sand and rushed rock for roads, infrastructure, and buildings and for industrial purposes for instance lime, metals, silica sand, kaolin, and talc in the production of cars, steel, medicines, computers, animal and human foodstuffs and fertilizers, to name just a few major applications.
The exclusive COVID 19 impact analysis report by Axiom MRC provides a 3600 analysis of micro and macro-economic factors on the silica sand market. In addition, complete analysis of changes on silica sand market expenditure, economic and international policies on supply and demand side. The report also studies the impact of pandemic on Europe economies, international trade, business investments, GDP and marketing strategies of key players present in the market. COVID-19 impact on the silica sand market was moderate owing to the decline in demand from glass, building & construction, water filtration and many other industries.
The study analyses Europe silica sand market based on product type, end use industry and country.
Various product types such as wet sands, dry sand, frac sand, filter sand, and coated sand are covered in the Europe silica sand market. Frac sand is a naturally occurring crystalline silica sand that is produced from high-purity sandstone. This sand is extremely durable and delivers a crush-resistant material used in the oil and gas industry for hydraulic fracturing application. The demand for this sand has increased considerably from the past few years as a growing number of natural gas and oil wells use the hydraulic fracturing process.
Major end use industries of the Europe silica sand market are glass manufacturing, foundry, chemical production, construction, paints and coatings, ceramics and refractories, filtration, oil and gas, and other end-user industries. The paint can coating as well as ceramics and refractories segment is expected to witness high growth in the coming years. Silica sand is widely used in paints and coatings to enhance the complete appearance and durability of the paint. And silica sand is an important component in the construction of all types of ceramics including wall tiles, floor tiles, tableware, and more.
Country wise, the study is comprised of the key countries such as the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and rest of Europe. The Germany held the largest market share of Europe silica sand market and is likely to dominate the market over the estimated time frame. Rapid growth in the construction industry across the region, growing technological advancements, increasing investment in several end use industries and rapid economic growth of the European countries are key attributable factors behind market growth in the region.
