STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

 

This report, Microspheres: Technologies and Global Markets, examines the spherical microparticles used as components in many advanced materials and composites, in the healthcare and personal care industries, and in many specialty research and development applications. Our key objectives are to present a comprehensive analysis of the global market for microspheres, including a wide variety of types of microspheres available on the market, as well as relevant industries, technologies and applications.

To this end, this BCC report:

- Describes demand for microspheres in six major industries: composites; paints and coatings; oil and gas; cosmetics and personal care; biotechnology and life sciences; and medicine and medical devices.

- Analyzes the demand for 2012 and 2013 and forecasts sales over the next five years by industry, type of microspheres, and geographic location.

- Describes different types of microspheres with respect to their chemical composition, including glass, ceramic, and polymer microspheres, and unique material properties that make them suitable for specific industries and applications.

- Provides detailed descriptions of major players in the market and their product portfolios.

- Identifies areas of the market that are expected to experience the highest growth in demand.

- Discusses the history and structure of the industry, technologies and factors influencing pricing, supply and demand.

- Reviews price trends and the relationship between price, quality, end-use application and functionality in the microsphere industry.

- Examines recent advances in technology, newly evolving markets and companies, as well other factors influencing supply.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

With new advances in technology, microspheres are taking on a new role as a functional additive and enabling technology that offers a winning combination of

benefits, such as reduced cost and improved product quality. Microspheres are currently used in a wide variety of industries ranging from medical devices to syntactic

foams. The swift pace of development creates a need for in-depth analysis that incorporates all the industries and global markets for microspheres and forecasts its direction through 2018.

SCOPE OF REPORT

BCC analyzes the global market for microspheres from both the manufacturing and demand points of view. Since there are several types of microspheres that vary

drastically in quality, chemical properties, functionality and price, each type of microsphere is discussed in detail, including materials, manufacturing processes,

advantages, prices and primary applications. Similarly, due to these variations microsphere use in six major industries are discussed and analyzed in detail.

Detailed analysis and market forecasts are provided per industry, type of microsphere and geographic region through 2018. The report describes major players in the

industry and examines recent advances in technology, newly evolving markets and companies as well other factors influencing supply and demand.

This report analyzes microspheres—homogeneous microparticles of 1 micron to 1,000 microns in diameter. Microspheres can be solid or hollow and made from a variety of

raw materials.

This report does not include:

- Particles less than 1 micron in diameter, often referred to as nanospheres.

- Particles of more than 1,000 microns in diameter, often referred to as balls or beads.

- Microcapsules, in which one material is used to encapsulate or form a shell around the other.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

This study will be of interest to manufacturers of microspheres in helping them analyze their company's position in the current market and possibly develop a new competitive strategy. It will provide them with valuable insight on areas of future product development and industry growth. The study will also be valuable to consumers of microspheres, including the composites, paints and coatings, oil and gas, cosmetics and personal care, life sciences and biotechnology, medicine and medical devices, adhesives, and automotive among many other industries. The report will also be valuable to marketing executives, entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists and other readers with a need to know how large the global market for microspheres is and how fast it is growing. The report should also be of interest to scientists, engineers, and others seeking to understand the potential market for the products they are currently developing.

This report offers detailed information on the use of microspheres in many industries and many types of microspheres available on the market. It will be of interest to any

company involved in manufacturing or consumption of this material.

INFORMATION SOURCES

BCC studied more than 100 companies to obtain data for this study. Included were microsphere manufacturers, distributors and consumers. We analyze individual company revenues, product portfolios and growth through 2018. Interview data were combined with information gathered through an extensive review of secondary sources

such as trade publications, trade associations, company literature, and online databases to produce the baseline market estimates contained in this report. The base year for analysis and projection is 2012. Market projections were developed for 2013 through 2018. The projections are based on a combination of a consensus among the primary contacts combined with BCC's understanding of the key market drivers and their impact from a historical and analytical perspective.
