United States Glassmaking Silica Market Summary

Market Dynamics
Glass is a luxurious, decorative, and functional material that is used in various industries. This highly versatile material is used in a variety of applications ranging from construction to advanced aeronautics. Silica sand is an essential raw material used for manufacturing glass. This, is turn, is increasing the demand for glass, which is expected to significantly fuel to the growth of the US glassmaking silica sand market during the forecast period. Moreover, rising awareness about the various properties of glass such as rust resistance, weather resistance, and good conductor of electricity is increasing its demand, thereby spurring market growth.

Silica is the main constituent of the lithosphere and its various industrial applications makes it a vital material. Conversely, its rapid extraction damages the environment. Silica mining causes sinkholes, land erosion, and loss of biodiversity. The chemicals used in mining results in the contamination of the soil, water bodies, and groundwater. Environmental activists and local government bodies are enforcing strict rules and raising awareness about the ill effects of silica mining. This, in turn, is hampering the glassmaking silica sand market.

Glass is widely used in the construction of solar panels. The photovoltaic materials utilized in solar panels are supported by layers of glass. The solar panels are adopted by around two-third of corporate offices since 2015 in the US. The Government of the US is taking active part in promoting renewable energy sources. Increasing preference for solar energy has increased its share in the US electrical generation from just 0.1% in 2010 to over 3% in 2020. Rising solar energy generation is projected to increase the demand for solar panels in the US. This, in turn, is expected to propel the demand for glassmaking silica sand to produce glass for solar panels by creating opportunities in the market.
