LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, March 15, 2021 / — The Australia silica sand market is likely to ascend at a CAGR of 7.7% over the forecast period (2021-2027) according to QuantAlign Research. The consumption for the silica sand market is expected to reach USD 62.1 Million by 2027. The growth can be primarily attributed to the growth of the polish glass industry in the region resulting in rising demand for basic glass-making raw materials, primarily high-purity glass silica sand, which is the most important group.

The demand for glass sand will presumably continue to be almost entirely fulfilled by domestic supply owing to abundant silica sand resources in the country. As the renewable energy revolution gains momentum, Australia’s fast-growing solar PV market will witness an increased demand for premium-quality silica sand, which will further aid in the growth of the silica sand market in the country.

During the forecast period, demand growth for the silica sand will be mainly supported by increasing demand from the construction industry and expanding applications of the silica sand in the solar panels, electronics, and the automotive industry. Silica sand is widely used from commercial to consumer products in Australia. Slica sand finds its application in recreational activities due to its suitability for the top dressing of Golf Greens, Cricket Pitches, Tennis Courts, Artificial Turfs, and Bowling Greens which further adds to the local consumption of the silica sand.

Australia is a major supplier of silica sand to many countries in the Asia/Pacific region. Major importers incudes Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and the Philippines.
