New Report Released: - Global Silica Minerals Mining Market 2016-2020

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global silica minerals mining market: Badger Mining, Fairmount Santrol, Imerys, Preferred Sands, Quarzwerke, Sibelco, and U.S. Silica.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alamos Gold, Minerali Industriali, Nordic Mining, The Quartz, and Kakatiya Overseas.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “Rise in adoption of anti-silicosis methods will be a key trend for market growth. Inhalation of silica sand causes severe health issues. Mechanical dust suppression technologies and personal protective equipment are traditionally used to protect from dust. However, these systems have limitations such as their use at transfer points, the space needed onsite, and at the breakdown. Thus, we expect an increase in the adoption of anti-silicosis methods during the forecast period.”

According to the report, increase in demand from glass industry will a key driver for market growth. The global glass market is experiencing high growth because of increased demand from the construction and automotive sectors. Developing countries such as India, China, and South Korea account for a large demand for glass. The global flat glass market had the capacity to produce 88.26 billion square feet of flat glass in 2014; this is expected to increase to 122.3 billion square feet by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 6.76%. Sand is the major component of glass and accounted for 51% of the raw materials used in the production of flat glass. Thus, the glass industry is a major driver for the global silica minerals mining market.

Further, the report states that recyclability will be a challenge for the market. The increase in the recyclability of glass is a challenge for the global silica minerals mining market. This leads to a reduction in the production of new glass, reducing the consumption of sand. Recycled glass substitutes almost 95% of the raw materials. The US and Europe are the major regions for glass recycling. In 2014, the European Union recycled 74% of the glass packaging by recycling more than 25.01 billion glass containers. In the US, 35% of the glass containers were recycled in 2014. The recyclability rate will increase during the forecast period, reducing the magnitude of sand consumption in the glass industry.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
