This report analyzes microspheres, which are homogeneous microparticles of 1 to 1,000 microns in diameter. Microspheres can be solid or hollow and are made from a variety of raw materials.



In this report, the publisher analyzes the global market for microspheres by both material type and application. Since there are several types of microspheres that vary drastically in quality, chemical properties, functionality and price, each type of microsphere is discussed in detail, including materials, manufacturing processes, advantages, prices and primary applications. Similarly, due to these variations, microsphere use in five major application markets are discussed and analyzed in detail.

The report provides detailed analysis and market forecasts by industry, microsphere type and geographic region through 2027. It describes major industry players and examines recent advances in technology, newly evolving markets, companies and other factors influencing pricing characteristics. As already mentioned, except in a few segments, market prices are not controlled by supply and demand; instead, markets are created by new technologies and applications.

The scope of the current report has been widened by increasing the number of companies reviewed to more than double the number in past reports. The explosion in participants in the field is creating both job opportunities as well as new applications.

Estimated values used are based on manufacturers' total revenues. Projected and forecasted revenue values are in constant U.S. dollars, unadjusted for inflation.

This report does not detail the metallic microsphere market, as this is a parallel industry that is analyzed in depth in other reports from the publisher, such as those of metal injection molding (MIM) and powder metallurgy. MIM is the largest growing market for micron-sized metallic powders. Metallic microspheres are mostly solid microspheres and are more commonly referred to as metal powders, whereas this report covers materials for which microspheres are available in both solid and hollow forms.

The global microsphere market is on a strong growth trajectory. The market is growing largely due to new product introductions and application developments as well as growth in new geographies for existing or already-developed products and applications.

The microsphere market can be split into four product segments: glass microspheres, polymer microspheres, ceramic microspheres and other microspheres, which largely includes natural materials that are made in microspherical shapes.

The global trend for continued GDP growth is definitely helping the microsphere market, and the long-term trends for growth in medical applications such as cancer treatment and sustained drug release are supporting this market and its participants.
