Industrial Silica Sand Market Dynamics

North America and Asia Pacific will Prove Most Profitable Regions for Industrial Silica Sand Market Players

Industrial silica sand market is expected to witness rapid growth in North America and the Asia-Pacific region in the upcoming years. The positive growth prospects of the industrial silica sand market in the North American region is mainly attributed to the significant rise in production of industrial sand and gravel in the region.

According to a recent report published by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), in the U.S., the production of industrial sand and gravel valued around US$ 3.5 billion in 2017, which signifies an increase of around 32% over the production value in 2016. With the rapidly growing oil & gas sector in the region, the demand for industrial silica sand is expected to increase in North America, creating lucrative opportunities for industrial silica sand market players.

Similarly, with the increasing mineral resource production in the Asia-Pacific region, especially in Australia, is expected to create positive growth environment for industrial silica sand market players in the region. Furthermore, China’s export-oriented and capital-intensive growth has been creating more sales opportunities for players in the industrial silica sand market in Asia Pacific.
