Cenospheres are hollow spheres and lightly weighted spheres with very comprehensive strengths used as a structural lightweight filler. Generally, cenospheres occur as a byproduct of coal combustion in thermal power plants. Cenospheres are generally formulated with silica and alumina. These are filled with either with air or with the inert gas. They are very easy to handle, have high insulation characteristics and due to their inert properties, they remain unaffected by solvents, water, acids, and alkalis. Owing to all these positive sides, cenospheres have been vastly employed in various industries. The rising demand from end-user industries such as automotive, oil & gas is expected to impact the market positively.
Recently, several manufacturers have started filling cenospheres with polymers and metals to make lightweight composite materials. These materials compose greater strength as compared to the foam materials, and the composite materials are called syntactic foams. Our recent study states that the growing construction industry output is also an area, which is anticipated to be one of the utmost significant factors for the augmented demand of cenospheres in the global market.
The global cenospheres market outlook has been analyzed with respect to different parameters such as demand, supply, end-users, and providers of cenospheres. Cenospheres market is categorized by Types, applications, and end-user of the industry. On the basis of types of cenospheres, the report is segmented into white cenospheres, grey cenospheres and other types of cenospheres. Cenospheres are widely used in insulating materials, refractory materials, roofing materials, tires, and engine parts, composites/FRP and others.
The overall market is also presented from the perceptive of different geographic regions and the key countries in each region. North America held dominating share in the cenospheres in the year 2017. Region way analysis states, evolving countries in the APAC region like China and India will play an imperative role in the upcoming forecast period of 2018-2023.
