Microspheres, also known as microparticles are derived from various natural and synthetic polymeric materials which are biodegradable in nature and have very minute particle size. They find application in numerous purposes across diverse industry verticals. Typical application areas include Drug Carriers, Pulmonary Drug Delivery, and Tissue Regeneration.

The global Microspheres Market is poised to register a CAGR of 11.9% over the forecast period of 2016-2022, projects Market Research Future (MRFR) in its latest report.

The medical industry is the area where microspheres find predominant application. They are used in drug delivery where they assist in improving bioavailability, stability, and targetability. Microspheres offer numerous benefits over conventional drug delivery system and are associated with the advantages of improved efficacy, improved patient compliance, convenience, and reduced toxicity. Additionally, microspheres reduce the concentration of drugs at the unintended site, and such factors have helped the global ceramic microspheres attain many accolades. Microspheres do not require surgical implantation, unlike polymer implants which act as a major advantage for the market growth. Microspheres address the issues of permeability and poor solubility.
