Global Microspheres Market Predominantly Propelled By the Healthcare Sector; States MRFR Unleashing the Forecast for 2016-2022
Microspheres are normally free flowing powders consisting of proteins or synthetic polymers having a particle size ranging from 1-1000 μm. Manufactured from different natural and synthetic materials, Microspheres are commercially available as Glass microspheres, ceramic microspheres, and polymer microspheres.
The density of solid and hollow microspheres varies widely; therefore, they are used in a range of applications. Hollow microspheres are characteristically used as additives to lower the density of a material. Whereas, solid microspheres are used numerous applications depending on the material they are made of and their size.
Considering the rapid market expansion, the microspheres market witnesses currently, Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study analysis asserts that the Global Microspheres Market Growth is forecasted to grow exponentially by 2022, registering a staggering CAGR of 11.9% throughout the review period (2016-2022).
Microspheres play a causal role in the making of lighter and cost-effective consumer goods. Due to their small size and efficient carrier capacity, microspheres are majorly used in the manufacturing of innovative drug delivery system. Microspheres make an excellent match for control aspect of a drug administration system which further enhances the efficacy of therapeutics.
Other factors primarily contributing to the growth of the market include increasing population that is continually creating a massive demand in the consumer goods market as well as promoting the growing need for quality healthcare. The spreading awareness about the benefits of medical Bio-resorbable polymers is another key driving force pushing up the market.
Besides, factors such as increasing application areas of microspheres use, and advancements of microspheres in controlled drug delivery system, increasing advancement in drug development techniques and growing uses of microspheres for clinical research among others. Also, patient’s preference towards adopting controlled drug delivery matrix instead of surgeries boosts the market growth of microspheres, globally.
