Impact of Microspheres in Key Application Sectors (TechVision) : Opportunities for Microspheres Across Key Industries

Microspheres are being touted as the next generation materials in a broad range of applications. These are characteristically free flowing powders which are loaded with proteins or synthetic polymers having a particle size ranging from 1-1000 micrometers. There are various approaches to production methods of microspheres which is based on the form to be generated associated with the purpose of applications. As challenges related to large-scale production are gradually addressed, the market becomes ripe for innovations and emerges stepwise. This Research Service is tracks the developments in the microsphere industry and its significance to different end use segments. An elaborative industry value chain helps in understanding the various stakeholder segments from different approaches. Various technology and business drivers and challenges have been identified which helps in understanding the exact requirements of the industry.

Key Findings


The Microspheres market is emerging and is expected to mature by 2020. In due course, new technology developments are touted to grow and efforts for commercialization would increase.

- New production methods will be developed which can be scaled up further to meet large-scale industrial demands. Besides production demands, other factors such as tuning of microspheres for specific applications as well as encouraging end users to accept the newly emerging technical aspects.
- Lack of skilled resources and a high fluctuating cost of raw materials such as polymers and ceramics may form a barrier to the growth of this industry but with the pro-activeness on the stakeholders front, in a few years, the industry will flourish and mature by 2020.
- Lightweight components and materials for the construction industry is the dominant application for the microspheres market whereas other sectors of the market such as food technologies and personal care markets will also make significant developments in the next few years.
-Very high stakeholder participation related to addressing challenges, partnerships and so on is noted in this industry. Licensing of new technologies is also observed.
