Region : Global | Report ID: FBI105302 | Status : Ongoing



Silica sand(SiO2) is the finely crushed form of quartz. Silica sand or industrial sand is defined as sand with at least 95% SiO2 and less than 0.6% iron oxide. Sand which does not fulfil this criterion is considered as regular sand. Properties that make silica sand so desirable material are its toughness, high melting point and inert chemical nature.

Silica Sand is used for making concrete which is the basic building material and widely used in construction industry. As the developing economies like India and China witness growth in construction industry this factor shall drive the market growth.
