The global quartz market is anticipated to witness a CAGR of 4.81% over the forecast period, to reach a value of $9.28 billion by 2027. The base year taken into account for the market study is 2018, and the forecasted period is between 2019 and 2027.

Various factors that aid market growth are:

  • Growing demand for semiconductors & electronics
  • Surging production of solar photovoltaic/PV cells
  • Rising demand in the field of optics (Fibre Optic Cables & Optic Lenses)
  • Quartz powder is gaining acceptance in the range of applications

The growing demand for electronics & semiconductors is expected to increase the demand for quartz primarily, across the world. As stated by the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), the worldwide semiconductor market was valued at $468 Billion in 2018. The semiconductor industry consumes quartz sand, quartz glass, crucibles, etc., for various applications. Quartz is used within the electronics industry for its high stable, high-performance resonators, for further use in filters and oscillators.  There is a high demand for newer and ergonomic electronic products, due to the rapid pace of innovation, the advancement of technology, and R&D activities in the electronics industry. Quartz crystal is used to make frequency filters, oscillators, frequency controls, and timers in the electronic circuits for a wide range of products, such as communication equipment, computers, electronic games, and television receivers.

In 2018, silicon metal dominated the product type segment of the global quartz market by capturing the largest market share of around 60% with projected revenue of $XX million.  Silicon possesses various properties that make it ideal for semiconductor applications. The high-purity silicon metal is utilized in several end use industries. It is mainly used in the production of silicon compounds and silicon wafers. Aluminum manufacturers also use silicon metal as it improves hardness strength & castability. Silicon metal is also used as a secondary smelting additive, for the manufacturing of photonic devices and industrial refractories. Further, rising demand from aluminum & chemical applications, coupled with the rapidly evolving solar industry, as well as the demand from batteries and electronics, are expected to augment the silicon metal applications over the forecast period.

The environmental impact of quartz mining is the key factor restraining the growth of the global quartz market. The excessive inhaling of quartz or crystalline silica by any miner can result in silicosis, which is an irreversible disease in nature. Also, the water discharged after mining of quartz needs to be purified to some extent before discharging in water bodies. Due to this, the environmentalists are trying to pitch for tougher rules for quartz mining. For example, in North Carolina, environmentalists are trying to clean up a mountain river by putting pressure on the state. Further, discoloration in quartz tiles and slabs may lead to an additional cost to the overall unit/installation, and may not stand a chance against alternatives, such as natural stone, ceramic tile, or a laminate surface.

The report on global quartz includes segmentation analysis on the basis of  product type, and end user.

Geographically, the global quartz market has been segmented on the basis of four major regions, which includes:

In terms of geography, Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share in the quartz market of around 64%, and a revenue of approximately $XX million in 2018. The Asia-Pacific quartz market is driven by several factors, such as upsurge in the building & construction activities, and accelerating use in the foundry industry. Quartz, and quartz sand is used as basic materials in ceramic and cement production. China, India, and various Southeast Asian countries have helped the Asia Pacific to become the biggest construction & building market in the world. The real estate investment in the region, which includes investments in the residential and commercial sector, and office spaces has risen over the past few years. For instance, the government of India has given an enormous momentum to the infrastructural sector, by allocating INR 5.97 lakh crore (USD 92.22 billion), under the Union Budget 2018-2019. Further, owing to the presence of a large number of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the region, the electronics manufacturing in Asia-Pacific is likely to grow swiftly over the next few years.  The factors, such as cheap labor, coupled with low costs and the availability of raw materials, enable the companies in the region to offer to manufacture and assembling services for the companies in Germany, France, and the United States. The quartz market in the Asia Pacific is expected to experience high growth, over the forecast period, due to such aforementioned factors.

The global quartz market has been segmented on the basis of product type and end user. Market by product type comprises, quartz crystal, silicon metal & high-purity quartz. The high-purity quartz market is further divided into, fused quartz crucible, quartz surface and tile, and quartz glass. The different end user industries of the quartz are telecommunication, solar, buildings and construction, medical, optics, electronics, semiconductor, and other end-user industries.

The market has a number of players, and some of the key players involved in global quartz market are;

  • AGC Inc.
