Technology Insights

Based on technology, the Encapsulation market is segmented into spray technology, emulsion technology, dripping technology, and others. The spray technology segment accounted for the largest market share in 2020. Spray technology involves the spraying of an aqueous solution in hot air, which delivers higher efficiency. Most recommended carriers for the development of particles by spray technology in food industries are alcohols, fatty acids, triacylglycerols, and waxes. The emulsion technology entraps sensitive material, such as minerals and vitamins, in the carrier or coating material before being added to food. Thus, it allows nutrients to be quite stable and easily dispersed in the medium. Therefore, surging demand from the convenience food sector for encapsulated flavors and food is driving the growth of global encapsulation market.

Application Insights

Based on application, the Encapsulation market is segmented into pharmaceuticals and nutraceutical, food and beverages, personal care products, agrochemicals, and others. The market for the pharmaceuticals and nutraceutical segment is anticipated to grow in the coming years owing to the large number of companies using encapsulation to mask the bitter taste or smell of drugs and to provide their targeted and controlled delivery. The pharmaceutical sector is also greatly influenced by encapsulation technologies due to the benefits achieved by the manufacturers. Encapsulation for the food items allows flavor retention and removes bad taste. Increasing consumer preference for healthy and convenient food, growing demand for packaged food, and changing lifestyle coupled with preference for ready-made food are projected to fuel the global market growth during the forecast period.
