GCC Silica Sand Market by End-Use (Glass Industry, Foundry, Hydraulic Fracturing, Filtration, and Abrasives); Industry Analysis, Trends, Growth and Forecast 2023-2028

GCC Silica Sand Market Overview:

The GCC silica sand market was worth US$ XX Billion in 2022, expanding at a CAGR of X% during 2017-2022. The market is projected to register a CAGR of X% during 2023-2028, reaching US$ XX Billion by 2028. Silica sand, or industrial sand, is one of the most commonly used varieties of sand. It is derived from quartz, which is broken down into tiny grains by the gradual movement of wind and water. It also comprises feldspar, aluminum, and iron-bearing minerals. It is colorless and has excellent compression strength, durability, high melting and boiling points, and elasticity. It is used in glass making, foundries, paving roads, coal-burning boilers, oil and water filtration, industrial casting, and sandblasting. It possesses numerous advantageous properties, such as superior strength, high silica content, and resistance to heat and chemical reactions. As a result, silica sand finds extensive applications in the hydraulic fracturing process and construction industry across the GCC countries.

The GCC silica sand market is primarily driven by the increasing product demand in the construction industry for producing facades, doors, windows, shopfronts, interior partitions, and railings for balconies and stairs. Moreover, the increasing use of silica sand in consumer electronics and personal care products is another major growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, there has been a rise in demand for glass due to rapid expansion in the automotive industry across the region. In line with this, the rising use of hybrid guide plates, solar control glazing for automobile and building glass, lightweight glazing, and advanced nanotechnology in manufacturing flat glass has catalyzed market growth. Additionally, the shifting consumer preferences from crude oil toward naturally available shale gas that requires silica sand as a proppant has augmented the product demand. Furthermore, with a significant expansion of the glass manufacturing industry, there is a surge in the use of specialty glass in the reputable electronics sector. This, in turn, is driving the demand for silica sand. Along with this, the rising adoption of flat glass and fiberglass in the electronics and construction industries is propelling the market growth. Other factors, including the escalating demand for high-grade construction materials in the residential and commercial sectors, increasing usage of foundry sand, and a growing number of infrastructural projects, are also anticipated to create a positive market outlook in the coming years.
