Microspheres are spherical micro particles with their size ranging between 0.1 and 100 micrometers. They are used where consistent and predictable particle surface area is important. Microspheres have external pores on the surface or internal pores in the core. Some uses of these particles include carriers for drugs, high speed chromatography, cell delivery, and tissue regeneration as a scaffold.
Microspheres are most commonly used in the oil & gas industry. The end-user industries for this product include aerospace industry, cosmetics industry, automotive industry, paints & coatings industry, medical technology, composites and others. In 2015, in terms of revenue, XX industry accounted market share of XX% of the North American microspheres market.
