November 25, 2021 | Chemical & Materials

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Microencapsulation Market Report by Coating Material (Carbohydrates, Gums and Resins, Lipids, Polymers, Proteins), Core Form (Solid, Liquid, Gas), Technology (Spray Technology, Dripping Technology, Emulsion Technology, Coating Technology, and Others), Application (Pharmaceutical and Healthcare, Household and Personal Care, Food and Beverages, Agrochemicals, Construction, Textiles, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global microencapsulation market reached a value of US$ 10.5 Billion in 2023. Microencapsulation is the advanced technique of creating shells that can contain active ingredients and compounds. The shell is made of polymeric or non-polymeric materials such as cellulose, ethylene glycol, and gelatin. Microencapsulation is used to store and protect the ingredients from the environment and provide stability to the product. This technique is also generally used for masking the taste, odor, and activity of the encapsulated functional ingredients. Nowadays, microencapsulation has emerged as a promising technique for controlled drug delivery. It also effectively protects the encapsulated agents against degradation, reduces toxicity, improves efficacy and stability, and facilitates administration.

Global Microencapsulation Market Trends: 

The market is primarily driven by the significant growth of the pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries. In addition, the rising consumption of omega-3 fatty acids and other nutritional supplements, owing to the growing prevalence of chronic and lifestyle diseases, are propelling the demand for microencapsulation. Besides this, the rising applications of microencapsulation in diverse industries are also contributing to the market growth. For instance, microencapsulation is increasingly utilized to manufacture beauty supplements containing natural ingredients in the cosmetic industry. It is also used in the food and beverage industry to integrate nutrition and flavor with functional and fortified food products. Moreover, extensive investments in research and development (R&D) activities to improve the efficiency of the technology, coupled with the increasing strategic partnerships between industry players and end users, are expected to create a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, the market value is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
