One of the large frac sand providers, U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc. (stock ticker: SLCA), said today that its Industrial and Specialty Products business for silica sand will increase 2019 prices for most of its non-contracted silica sand and specialty products from 2 to 9 percent, depending on the product and grade.

U.S. Silica VP of Investor Relations and Corporate Communications Michael Lawson said in an email that the price increase does not apply to the company’s frac sand business, just to the non-contracted industrial sand.

U.S. Silica said the industrial product price increases would support continued investments in upgrading its capacity to meet demand and to offset rising production costs.

U.S. Silica operates more than 25 mines and production facilities and supplies proppant to customers in all the U.S. shale basins.
