Glass beads refer to small, round, or multiple sided beads that are made up of colored or transparent glass having holes for threading. Glass beads can be classified on the basis of shimmering effects, material and technology used, luster, and places of origin. The primary criterion for sorting glass beads into typological categories is the technique of manufacture. Six major types are pertinent to North American researchers which include drawn, wound, wound on drawn, mold-pressed, blown and Prosser molded. The various types of glass beads include Venetian, lampwork, furnace, handmade, Murano, blown, glass cane beads, hand blown, vintage, glass seed beads, beach glass beads, faceted, crystal, hemp, frosted, fused, pressed, powdered, dichroic, handcrafted, fish, art, and African glass beads. Drawn beads are also called tube, cane, and hollow cane beads, the appellation "drawn" is preferred because it refers to the production process rather than the form of the finished product. Mold-pressed beads are also known as molded, pressed, mandrel pressed, and mold pressed, the latter designation is adopted here as it seems to best describe the process of manufacture.

Wound beads also termed wire wound and mandrel wound was produced by winding a viscid rod or a strand drawn there from around a rotating metal mandrel one or more times until the desired size and shape were achieved. While still soft, the beads might be decorated with any of a myriad of inlays or appliques. They might also be pressed with small metal paddles or clamped in tong-like molds to impart a design or a uniform shape. When cool, the beads were stripped from the mandrel which is sometimes tapered or covered with chalk, graphite or clay to facilitate this step. The surfaces of wound beads usually exhibit swirl marks that encircle the axis. Bubbles are either round, or elongate and oriented like the swirl marks. The perforation may taper slightly and have an uneven surface. The wound-on-drawn beads are a rare type recorded only at one site in the Pacific Northwest. It consists of a short section of drawn tubing about which has been wound a layer of contrastingly colored glass. Having a red exterior and white core, the only variety observed to date is practically indistinguishable from its more common, all-wound counterpart. The only difference is that the cores of the former contain linear bubbles that parallel the axis.

Blown beads employ three methods for its manufacturing. The first entailed fixing a small gather of molten glass on the end of a blowpipe and blowing it into a bubble with a slight hollow projection at either end. When the bubble had cooled, the projections were broken off, creating the hole, and the sharp edges were generally fire-polished. The second method is fundamentally similar apart from that the bubble was blown in a two-piece mold, to impart either a design or a special or uniform shape. In the third method, a series of bubbles was blown in a heated glass tube. The latter was then broken into individual or segmented beads whose ends may or may not have been fire polished. The glass beads market can be segmented on the basis of its structure which refers to the physical composition of a bead. There are four structural categories. Simple beads are composed of a single, undecorated layer of glass. Compound beads are composed of two or more, undecorated layers of glass. Complex beads are simple specimens with adventitious decoration. While composite beads are compound specimens with adventitious decoration. Glass beads are used majorly in the ornaments industry. Additionally, it is also used across liquid pavement markings, binders, equipment, operator skills, and ambient conditions.

The report, at first, introduced glass beads. It provided basic information regarding the definition of glass beads, its various classifications, applications, industry chain structure, and industry overview. The report provides the international glass beads market analysis along with China domestic market analysis, economic situation, macroeconomic environment analysis, and influence. The deep research report on global and china glass beads industry also includes industry policy and plan, product specifications, manufacturing process, product cost structure, major market players, capacity production, production value gross margin, company related information, market share, demand supply shortage, and import export consumption.
