Global microspheres market is witnessing very high growth on account of rising demand from existing and new applications that would become significant in the future, especially in the North America region. North America holds major market share followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. In terms of individual countries, the market is dominated by U.S. due to the constant innovations of micro particles that help in optimizing and enhancing the present components and processes.

Microspheres Market Share, by Applications, 2013

Microspheres Market

Source: MarketsandMarkets Analysis

Microspheres are also known as micro particles, micro beads, beads, and micro balloons. Globally there has been a surge in the development of infrastructure, especially in the under developed and the growing economies. Even developed countries have been constantly modifying and revamping their existing infrastructure facilities to ensure efficient and effective utilization of scarce resources. Today every structure built, right from a simple automobile to a space station, is made up from advanced materials which are efficient and environment friendly to ensure minimal damage to the surrounding. In short, efficiency along with recyclability and reusability is the need of the hour.

U.S. commands the maximum share of the microsphere patents registered worldwide. It is followed by Europe for the overall patents filed from 2010 to 2013. Least number of patents was registered in Japan; with relatively less share of the total number of patents.

In terms of global market, the industry comprises of many small market participants with only a few major companies globally. The industry is highly fragmented in terms of the segments in which the products are offered. Due to presence of a large number of small players, companies are constantly fighting to capture more and more market share.

In 2013, 3M (U.S.) dominated the global microspheres market with around a quarter of the market share, followed by Sigmund Linder GmbH (Germany) and Potters Industries LLC (U.S.), each capturing around 5% - 7% of the market. Rest of the companies captured only marginal market shares.
