Global market analysis of hollow glass Microspheres
The global hollow glass microsphere market is expected to grow from USD 4.2 billion in 2020 to USD 9.5 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 9.3% during the forecast period of 2021-2028.
Introduction of Hollow Glass Microspheres
Hollow glass microspheres, also known as microbubbles, glass bubbles or air bubbles, are mainly composed of a combined borosilicate-soda lime glass formulation, which has the advantages of high heat and chemical resistance and low density. These microspheres can also be coated with a conductive coating. The adjusted thickness of the conductive coating on the microbubbles provides excellent shielding and conductive properties. Electronics, medical devices, military applications, biotechnology and various other specialized fields can benefit from this. Hollow Glass Microspheres (HGMS) have an extraordinary spherical shape that provides many significant advantages, including reduced shrinkage and warpage, better flow/lower viscosity, and greater fill volume. It also allows HGMS to be easily blended into compounds that
Market Size Demand for Hollow Glass Microspheres
Hollow glass microspheres are a well-known lightweight technology for injection moulded plastics in transportation applications, and the transportation industry is expected to drive market revenues. These glass bubbles help reduce the weight of parts and improve fuel efficiency in automobiles, commercial vehicles, recreational vehicles, and aircraft while maintaining essential physical properties. Microspheres offer many advantages over other particle geometries in biomedical applications, which is expected to drive industrial growth in the healthcare industry. Construction, defence, mining, cementing and drilling fluids are among the many applications. Glass bubbles are used as sensitizers in explosive formulations to provide uniform and stable internal voids to improve detonation efficiency, stimulating their demand in the mining industry.
COVID-19 has had an impact on almost every sector of the planet. With such a high demand for this product in the transportation industry, the downturn in this sector has had a direct impact on market growth. The transportation sector is being hit hard due to nationwide embargoes imposed by several countries, severely damaging the demand for hollow glass microspheres worldwide.
