The encapsulation market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Many Asia-Pacific countries, such as China and India, are among the world's fastest-growing populations. The food industry is expanding in the region because of its wide range of applications. The existence of various established sectors, such as food & beverages, in China, India, Japan, and South Korea has increased the demand for packaging solutions in the region. The high demand for dietary supplements among the youngster population is driving the encapsulation market. Major constituents of dietary supplements, such as vitamins and enzymes, require targeted delivery. A few trendy factors such as health consciousness, nutrition, and wellbeing are driving consumer behavior for food that supports longer and healthier lives. The demand for functional food and dietary supplements is increasing among the population. Thus, with the growing consumption of packaged food & beverages in the region, the encapsulation market in Asia Pacific is expected to witness a significant growth during the forecast period.
With the COVID-19 outbreak across the world, most countries declared a health emergency and stopped inessential movements. The crisis heavily impacted the supply chain of goods. Amid the crisis, there is a surge in the demand for healthy food and beverage from the consumers to boost immunity. The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the global encapsulation market owing to the shutdown of manufacturing units, rise in prices of raw material, shortage of labor, disruption of supply chains, and financial instability. Furthermore, governments of various countries are planning to develop modern and technologically advanced infrastructure to mitigate the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, it helps to contribute to the growth of the construction industry, which would boost the demand for encapsulation in the coming years. This pandemic is projected to impact the market at a low level. However, with the relaxation of the norms, which were taken to control the spread of the virus, the market resumed with the necessary precautions.
Encapsulation can provide functional properties such as controlled release in predetermined environments. Encapsulated flavors are being used extensively in the convenience food sector for the controlled release of flavors and colors in food products, including tea bags, confectionery, instant drinks, and desserts. The changing fast-paced lifecycle of individuals globally and the growing urban population worldwide drive the need for convenience food products. The convenience food sector consists of food products designed to reduce preparation time for the end user. The convenience food sector has witnessed a substantial increase in demand in the past decade globally, and it is expected to increase significantly during the forecast period.
Based on coating material, the encapsulation market is segmented into polymers, gums and resins, lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins. The carbohydrates segment accounted for the largest market share in 2020, whereas the polymers segment is expected to register the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period. Carbohydrates are the first polymers used for flavor encapsulation owing to their good physicochemical properties, good solubility in water, low viscosity, and excellent barrier properties with respect to volatile organic compounds. Coating material for carbohydrates consists of starch, maltodextrins, chitosan, corn syrup solids, dextran, modified starch, fructose, and cyclodextrins. Polymer encapsulation is used in the pharmaceutical industry for orally delivered drugs, and masking taste and odor to improve patient compliance and reduce gastrointestinal irritation and toxicity.
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.
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.
A few players operating in the Encapsulation market are Encapsys, LLC; Lycored; Tastetech; Givadan; Balchem, INC; FrieslandCampina; DSM; Microtek Laborotories, INC; Legris Industries Group; and BASF SE. The key companies adopt strategies such as the mergers and acquisitions, and research and development to expand customer base and gain significant share in the global market, which also allows them to maintain their brand name globally.
