Global Food Encapsulation Market is valued approximately USD 9.21 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 7.50 % over the forecast period 2019-2026. Food encapsulation is a technique of covering individual ingredient particles with a coating for protection against a broad range of environmental factors. Food encapsulation is similar to wrapping a protective shell around a core or grouping of flavour materials. It is often employed to provide uniform taste, increase shelf-life, time-release taste and smell and colouring, , improve taste and protect against harsh conditions (e.g. heat) during production of the finished product. Food encapsulation technology can reduce degradation and loss of flavour during various product processes and storage. Food encapsulation techniques also offer functional properties such as a controlled release of aromatic molecules in a given environment such as water (if flavoured tea), mouth (solid food: candy, toothpaste) and spray. The market is primarily driven by the increasing use of encapsulated flavors in the food and beverage industry and the rising adoption of microencapsulation for functional ingredients. Moreover, growing packaged food demand is expected to fuel global food encapsulation market growth. As per China Food Industry Association’s internal Food Industry Summary report 2018 the food processing industry reached to USD 1.47 trillion in 2017 demonstrating an increase of 6.3% over its value from the previous year. This increase is due to the shift from eating full to eating well mentality of the Chinese citizens specially the middle-class population who chose snacks, beverages, condiments and other processed foods over traditional meals. This has increased the load on the food processing units in the country to balance the demand from exit of traditional meals. Also, according to the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, China has become one of the largest packaged food markets across the world. The Chinese packaged food market valued at USD 202 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach around USD 347 billion by 2018. However, Maintaining the stability of encapsulated food impedes the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2020-2026. Although, Technological advancements in controlled delivery and release systems is projected to provide lucrative opportunities for market participants.
