Project Specific Systems Gain Popularity as Sand Coolers and Simplify Sand Reclamation

The modern foundry industry in India is facing a huge problem of finding new sand sources due to growing mining restrictions. Hence, stakeholders in the Asia Pacific reclamation sand market are turning toward sand reclamation to overcome this issue. As such, the revenue of India is projected for exponential growth in the market landscape and the market is estimated to reach a revenue of ~US$ 2.8 Bn by the end of 2027. Moreover, companies are boosting their credibility credentials on a global level by contributing actively toward environmental protection in cases of scarcity of landfill capacities.

Companies in the market landscape are investing in project-specific systems to cool and de-dust sand. For instance, Giesserei Umwelt Technik GmbH— a specialist for foundry plants, is extensively using project-specific systems that are used as sand coolers and are integrated with a cascade classifier. Thus, companies in the Asia Pacific reclamation sand market should streamline their production practices in a similar way.

The market is projected to grow at a favorable CAGR of ~7% during the forecast period. Equipment companies are increasing their production capabilities to develop novel reclamation systems that crush, scrub, and classify chemically bonded lumps down to grain size. They are also manufacturing systems that can be easily installed and deploy low maintenance costs.

Thermal Reclamation Offers Time and Cost Efficiency in Production of Clean Sand

The Asia Pacific reclamation sand market is estimated to reach an output of ~8,300 kilo tons by the end of 2027. However, high costs involved with the sand reclamation procedure are hindering market growth. Hence, companies are increasing their focus on thermal reclamation processes. As such, the revenue of thermal reclamation is projected for aggressive growth in the market landscape. Thus, stakeholders in the Asia Pacific reclamation sand market are benefitting with the advantages of thermal reclamation such as accurate removal of binding agents and the possibility of using complete sand for the production of fresh molding. This indicates that thermal reclamation provides cost and time efficiency for stakeholders.

Thermal reclamation is being highly publicized for producing very less chemically harmful dust in the atmosphere. Companies are streamlining their production practices by conducting the process of thermal reclamation in fluidized beds. This process helps in maintaining the proper shape of sand grains and is clean for further usage by facilitating sand, which is as good as new sand. Such production practices are boosting the credibility of companies in the Asia Pacific reclamation sand market.

Price Rise of Silica Sand Creating Demand for Mechanical Sand Systems

The process of department-by-department examination is casting a spotlight on ways to improve operations and reduce costs. Thus, the Asia Pacific reclamation sand market is continuously growing with high presence of tier 3 players consisting of local and regional companies accounting for a market share of ~30%-40% in 2018. Companies are focusing on available floor space, core & metal removal, and sand mulling & sand delivery for the establishment of sand systems in casting facilities. In chemically bonded molding systems, companies are separating the metal from the sand, prior to reclamation in order to improve the quality of sand.

The recent price increase of silica sand is bolstering the demand for both mechanical and thermal systems in the Asia Pacific reclamation sand market. These trends are encouraging equipment companies to make sand systems financially viable for medium and small-sized casting operations.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Strategic collaborations between equipment manufacturing companies and metal casting companies can help improve the material flow and handling of add-on projects in the Asia Pacific reclamation sand market. Appropriate screening techniques and magnetic separators are extensively being adopted by companies to efficiently remove impurities in the sand circuit, thus providing a decisive qualitative advantage to companies.

Though rising prices of silica sand are creating a demand for sand reclamation, high costs involved with the sand reclamation procedure and increased generation of chemically harmful dust are slowing down market growth. Hence, companies should collaborate with equipment manufacturing companies who can develop cutting-edge sand reclamation systems that are less capital-intensive and are environment-friendly.

Asia Pacific Reclamation Sand Market: Overview

  • In terms of value, the reclamation sand market in Asia Pacific is expected to reach ~US$ 2.8 Bn by 2027
  • During the sand reclamation process, binders and coatings that adhere to sand grains during casting production are removed to recycle sand for subsequent use
  • The sand reclamation process is of three major types: mechanical reclamation (also known as attrition reclamation or dry reclamation), wet reclamation, and thermal reclamation

Asia Pacific Reclamation Sand Market: Key Drivers and Restraints

  • Rise in oil and gas exploration and drilling activities in Asia Pacific is anticipated to drive the demand for drilling mud in the near future. This, in turn, is expected to boost the reclamation sand market in the region during the forecast period.
  • Engine oils and lubricants need to deliver high performance throughout the operating life of engines or machines. Hence, manufacturers of engine oils and lubricants use lubricating additives to attain anti-wear and anti-corrosive properties. Thus, increasing demand for lubricants is projected to drive the reclamation sand market during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific Reclamation Sand Market: Key Process Segment

  • Based on process, the reclamation sand market in Asia Pacific has been segregated into mechanical reclamation, wet reclamation, and thermal reclamation
  • In the mechanical sand reclamation method, binders are ground quickly to keep sand flowing through the foundry process. Wet reclamation partially removes sand coatings and organic matter, while thermal reclamation, which is typically carried out at over 800°C, is suitable for non-ferrous foundries and oil-bonded sands that do not contain clay.
  • These reclamation processes are sometimes combined to improve sand recovery and quality. For instance, sand may be processed by using thermal reclamation after wet reclamation to completely remove organic matter and restore the original quality of sand.
  • The wet reclamation process is complex, but the quality of wet reclaimed sand is better than the sand obtained through any other process. However, the combination of mechanical reclamation and wet reclamation processes is the most suitable method. The quality of wet reclaimed sand is close to that of the fresh sand. Hence, in several cases, fresh sand can be replaced by wet reclaimed sand.
