The global PMMA microsphere market is projected to reach USD 191.7 Million by 2020 from USD 118.1 Million in 2014, at a CAGR of 8.5% during the period 2015–2020. The base year used for study is 2014 and the forecast period is 2015 to 2020. This report provides a detailed analysis of the PMMA microsphere market based on application, size, and region.

The research methodology for this study was devised with a unique combination of primary and secondary sources. Extensive secondary sources of directories and databases, such as Hoovers, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and Factiva, were used to identify and collect information useful for this technical, market-oriented, and commercial study of the polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microsphere market. The primary sources were used to validate the information obtained from secondary or derived sources via in-house methodology. The primary participants covered large industry experts from core and related industries along with preferred suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, service providers, and related organizations to all segments of the supply chain of the industry. Further, in-depth interviews of various primary respondents were included from subject matter experts (SMEs), C-level executives of key market players, and industry consultants, among other experts. A combination of primary and secondary information sources was considered while obtaining and verifying critical qualitative and quantitative information with respect to both present market and future expectations. The figure below shows the breakdown of the primary participants during the research study.

The global polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)microsphere market is expected to reach USD 191.7 Million by 2020 from USD 118.1 Million in 2014, at a projected CAGR of 8.5% during the period 2015 to 2020. The microspheres are used in premium coatings due to its property of imparting a matte finish, and the largest portion comes from premium architectural coatings. New application techniques and increase in disposable income across the regions coupled with increasing infrastructural investments are expected to drive the architectural coatings market, which in turn shall boost the market for PMMA microspheres.

In terms of application areas, display panels dominated the PMMA microspheres consumption and accounted for a maximum share of the PMMA market in terms of value in 2014, owing to a large hub for manufacturing LED flat screens and LED TVs in the Asia-Pacific region. However, the market for medical and coating applications, which are collectively expected to contribute approximately half of the global PMMA market size in 2020, is projected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to large utilization of PMMA microspheres as fillers in cosmetic surgeries and bulking agents for tissues to provide for lost volume due to disease, injury, or aging.

In terms of size, when segmented, the smaller size segment containing “0 to 30 microns” accounted for a major share. The “Above 30 microns” segment is expected to show higher growth owing to increased demand from medical applications during the forecast period. PMMA microspheres of size greater than 30 microns have qualities of biocompatibility, reliability, relative ease of manipulation, and low toxicity, which leads to its increased usage in many different medical specialties.

The overall market of PMMA polymers is dominated by the Asia-Pacific region with large display manufacturing hubs in China, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan accounting for more than 90% of the global display production capacity. Asia-Pacific accounted for the maximum market share in PMMA microspheres production in 2014, which is expected to increase at a significant rate by 2020. Europe is the fastest-growing market for PMMA microspheres. Growing adaptation of premium products across end-use industries such as cosmetic, coatings, and medical in the developed economies such as Germany, France, U.K., and Spain is expected to boost the demand for PMMA microspheres in these regions.

Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) Microspheres Market

However, PMMA microspheres are relatively higher priced than other competitive materials such as silica, glass, and ceramics, which inhibits the growth of the market. Cospheric LLC (U.S.) is among the top players in the PMMA microsphere market. This company aims to partner with innovators in many industries to create additional value and competitive advantage for its products. Their current focus involves developing and manufacturing precise microspheres, microcoatings, and microstructures for a wide variety of applications. The company also believes in producing small custom runs of polymer microspheres at cost-effective pricing and short lead times.
