Japan Silica Sand Industry Report 2018

Japan Silica Sand Industry Report 2018

This report studies the consumption and production of silica sand in Japan market, focusing on the status and forecast of silica sand.

In 2017, the consumption of silica sand in Japan market was 6.88 million tons and will be 8.18 million tons in 2025; while the revenue was 329 million USD in 2017 and will reach 424 million USD in 2025, with a CAGR of 3.3% between 2018 and 2025. The market is being dominated by few Japanese players like Mitsubishi, Toyota Tsusho, Tochu, Tokai Kogyo and JFE Mineral.

In terms of production of silica sand in Japan, the production was 2.73 million tons in 2017 and the production will be 2.45 million tons in 2025, due to lack of good silica reserves.

Japan lacks its own good silica reserves by the nature of its geology, primarily volcanic arc mountains. Japan relies heavily on imported silica sand for glass making, especially imports silica sand from Australia, over 50% of imported volume. In addition, the Vietnam, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, USA, Indonesia and other countries, also are import source of silica sand, occupying for the rest import source.

Japan also manufactures the silica sand domestically, with approximately 41% of consumption volume from the local factories, operated by Tochu, Tokai Kogyo, JFE Mineral and Toyoura Keiseki Kogyo etc. Mitsubishi and Toyota Tsusho are two import suppliers for Japan and Asia market, from their plants in Australia, Malaysia and Vietnam, especially the Mitsubishi¡¯s Cape Flattery silica sand operation in North Queensland, about 2 million tons of silica sand annually are shipped from the Site to Japan as well as South Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines and other countries in Asia.

The global market also affects the production and consumption of silica sand in Japan market, especially the market in Australia, USA and China, the consumption and production in the three countries, can influence on the price of silica sand into Japan market. In few future years, the price of silica sand will show a trend of fluctuations.

The Japan market will maintain a steady demand on the silica sand, tilted slightly to the downside, due to the downstream competition of glass making and casting, from China, India and Southeast Asia.
