  • Construction composites
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Cosmetics and personal care
  • Others

The top three application segments for the global microspheres market are:

Global microspheres market in medical technology sector

The medical technology sector is a prominent part of the healthcare industry. It includes medical devices that simplify the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases. Some of the well-known medical technology products include pacemakers, imaging instruments, dialysis machines, and implants. Microspheres are used for manufacturing and testing medical devices. They are selected and used based on the applications.

According to Mahitha Mallishetty, a lead metals and minerals research analyst from Technavio, “Fluorescent microspheres are used for applications where particles are consumed, emitting distinct colors when illuminated by ultraviolet rays. Fluorescent microspheres are useful as primary particles for acoustical and optical analytical systems.”

Global microspheres market in construction composites sector

The rapid increase in the construction industry has been attracting investors, especially in MEA. For instance, the UAE government offers incentives to investors, which attract them to the Middle East. Microspheres are used in the preparation of high-strength lightweight concrete used in building infrastructure.

Fiberglass manufacturers use ceramic microspheres to produce lighter and highly durable fiberglass. North America is anticipated to be the largest market for ceramic microspheres because of the high demand for fiberglass in construction,” says Mahitha.

Global microspheres market in pharmaceutical sector

Microspheres are extensively used in the pharmaceutical sector for the formulation of numerous drugs. For instance, drugs are formulated in hydrodynamically balanced floating systems of microspheres. In addition, gold microspheres are consumed in kits for a home pregnancy test. Similarly, infused, negatively charged, immunity-modifying microspheres can have beneficial use in diseases instigated or potentiated by inflammatory monocytes.

Coated microspheres act as a measuring tool in biology and drug research. Polymer-based microspheres are consumed in miniature time-release drug capsules. Similarly, these microspheres are used in the outer shell of microbubble contrast agents for contrast-enhanced ultrasound.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • 3M
  • AkzoNobel
  • Chase
  • Momentive Performance Materials
  • Potters Industries
  • Sigmund Lindner
