North America and Australia Silica Industry Overview
The North America and Australia silica market size was valued at USD 7.18 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.0% from 2021 to 2028.
Increasing investments in the oil gas industry coupled with the rising use of foundry sand are propelling the market growth. For instance, in November 2021, Australia approved a USD 12 billion LNG investment where Woodside Petroleum will supply LNG for at least 20 years. Such investments are anticipated to propel market growth as commercial silica is widely used in the oil gas industry due to its chemical composition, inertness, hardness, purity, and resistance to high temperatures. In 2020, the U.S. was ranked as the world’s leading producer and consumer of industrial sand and gravel.
Its high demand is attributed to the high quality and advanced processing techniques used for its various grades to meet the specifications of different industries. With well-established rubber, glass, foundry, agrochemicals, paints coatings, oil gas, and chemical industries in the U.S., the product demand in these applications is in high volumes. However, industrial sand and gravel, especially crystalline silica, continue to face challenges with respect to safety and health regulations and environmental restrictions.

The rubber industry is a key consumer of specialty silica and holds significant importance across various end-use industries including defense, automotive, construction, healthcare, agriculture, and others. Specialty silica finds application in the manufacture of tires, industrial rubber, silicone rubber, and footwear. Manufacturers operating in the tire industry are placing their strategic bets on new product launches to stay ahead in the competition. For instance, in December 2021, the Goodyear Tire Rubber Company launched the new ElectricDrive GT green tires in North America, tuned for Electric Vehicles (EVs). Such developments are anticipated to have a positive influence on the demand for silica in the rubber industry over the forecast period.
