The global Silica Sand for Foundry Market size was significantly robust in 2021 and is expected to register a rapid revenue CAGR over the forecast period. Market revenue growth is primarily driven by rising use of silica for production of glass, increased production of metal castings using it in foundry, and higher prevalence of synthetic sport courts. 

Silica sand, also known as quartz or industrial sand, is composed mostly of two elements, silica and oxygen. This sand is utilized in a wide range of applications, including road paving, glass manufacturing, foundries and coal-fired boilers, oil and water filtering, industrial casting, and sandblasting. In addition, increasing use of silica in glass manufacturing is owing to high chemical purity and strong thermal and radiation resistance, which increases applicability of the glass. Silica sand also provides high transparency from ultraviolet to infrared spectral range such that it can be widely used in crockery and windows. They are highly effective filter medium, hence used for filtration of portable water filters, pool filters, and sewage treatment plants, owing to its property to retain impurity-containing precipitates and dirt particles while guaranteeing adequate filtering. Moreover, they are used in foundries and coal-fired boilers due to physical and chemical properties including having greater melting temperature compared to iron, copper, aluminum, and other common metals, which makes preparation of castings easier. Furthermore, it is utilized in the hydraulic fracturing process, which is attributed to favorable features such as strength, high quartz concentration, and resistance to heat and chemical reactions. It is also an excellent filter bed owing its homogeneous shape and size, which gives desired results and makes it a preferred option.
