“By application, the food & beverage segment is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period.”
The food & beverages segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR because of multiple applications of microencapsulation in the food industry, where it is used to provide protection and to achieve the desired results of the active ingredients. Some ingredients added for product fortification are encapsulated to mask the odor and taste and to retain the products’ taste. The increasing consumer demand for enhancing shelf-life in functional food products is also driving the food & beverage segment of the microencapsulation market.

“By technology, the emulsion technologies segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the global microencapsulation market during the forecast period.”
Based on technology, the microencapsulation market is segmented into spray technologies, emulsion technologies, dripping technologies, and others. The emulsion technologies segment is projected to record the highest CAGR. The emulsion technologies segment includes three major technologies such as in-situ polymerization, coacervation, and sol-gel encapsulation. The demand for emulsion microencapsulation is increasing due to the simplicity of the process, process safety, and its cost efficiency.

“Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region in the microencapsulation market, due to an increase in the demand for microencapsulated construction materials and rise in the consumption of fortified food & beverage products.”
The demand for microencapsulation for value-added functions is propelled by its increasing applications in various industries such as nutrition & pharmaceutical, food & beverage, personal care, and cosmetic. The technological developments in Asia Pacific countries, due to the developing infrastructure, have presented a potential scope for the automation of microencapsulation, as well as for improving its cost-effectiveness and output.
