The global demand for microspheres is projected to reach $5,871.3 million by 2019. Microspheres have superior structural properties and are recyclable and reusable in nature. The growth for microspheres will be driven by the high demand from the current & emerging applications, development & modernization of infrastructure, and increased demand for efficiency. The North American region remains the largest market for microspheres, followed by Europe. The Asia-Pacific market is estimated to be the key growth area due to high rate of development in the region.

Construction composite is the major application for the microspheres market with around 29.2% of the market share in terms of value, in 2013. Medical technology application of microspheres is expected to have the highest growth among the applications between 2014 and 2019. Within raw material types, glass microspheres offer significant advantages over others and have wide applications in almost all industries; hence, this segment has the largest share of the market in terms of value. On the basis of types, hollow microspheres accounted for majority of the market share due to their high demand and usability.

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.

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 the maximum market share, followed by Sigmund Linder GmbH (Germany) and Potters Industries LLC (U.S.), each capturing prominent market share. Rest of the companies captured only marginal market shares.
