Key Market Trends

Increasing Usage in the Medical Technology

Microspheres are often used as challenge particles and tracers in medical devices, having diameters of more than 50 microns in different colors such as red, blue, black, yellow, and green.
Colored microspheres are typically used in the testing of vial and container cleaning evaluations, filtration media and systems, centrifugation and sedimentation processes, flow tracing and fluid mechanics, controlling contamination, and manufacturing of pharmaceuticals.
Fluorescent-colored microspheres are used for applications that use UV light to produce distinctive colors and offer additional sensitivity for observation under microscopes, lasers, and other analytical methods, for medical applications, such as microcirculation and biological research, imaging, and flow cytometry.
With recent improvements in quality and functionality, microspheres are widely used in medical diagnostics as injectable biomaterial, tissue filler, reagents for diagnostic devices, and drug delivery vehicles. It is also used as a tracer and challenging particle.
In September 2022, Sirtex Medical announced that the Brazilian National Agency of Supplementary Health (ANS) approved SIR-Spheres Y-90 resin microspheres for the treatment of intermediate and advanced stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in Brazil.
In September 2022, ABK Biomedical, Inc. announced that the company had received FDA 510(k) clearance for Easi-Vue embolic microspheres for the treatment of patients suffering from arteriovenous malformations and hypervascular tumors.
Continuous innovation, technological development, and various versatile applications, along with the aforementioned facts, will boost the demand for microspheres in the application of the medical technology industry.

North America Region to Dominate the Market
