Global Microspheres Market Report 2024-2032, by Type, Raw Material, Application and Region

Dublin, June 12, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Global Microspheres Market Report by Type, Raw Material, Application, and Region 2024-2032” report has been added to’s offering.

The global microspheres market size reached US$ 6.5 Billion in 2023. Looking forward, the market is projected to reach US$ 14.1 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 8.99% during 2023-2032.

Microspheres refer to solid sphere-shaped particles available in sizes ranging from 1 to 1000 m. They are usually made using glass, ceramic, fly ash, metal and polymers and have controlled opacity, particle size distribution, gravity and electrostatic charge. In the medical sector, microspheres are used for drug administration and embolization, along with testing and development of medical equipment.

They are lightweight, have portability and high compression abilities owing to which, they are used in the production of elastics, plastics, steel, automobiles, beauty care and personal care products. They are also used for developing low thickness boring liquid and concrete slurry for oil and gas extraction activities. In addition, they find extensive applications across aviation, aerospace, defense and construction sectors.

The thriving pharmaceutical and medical industries, along with the growing need for advanced drug delivery systems, is the key factor driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, microspheres are gaining traction for bone tissue engineering and radioembolization to treat liver cancer, along with the development of biopharmaceuticals. In the oil and gas industry, they are used for torque control in drilling fluids and mud lubricity in drilling machines.

There is also an increase in the demand for paints and powder coatings that utilize microspheres for their high strength, low viscosity, gloss control and radiation curable properties. Moreover, factors including growing spending capacity of consumers, increasing research and development (R&D) in life sciences and biotechnology and the growing prevalence of lifestyle diseases are also favoring the market growth.
