Global Micro-encapsulation Market Overview, Size, Share And Trends 2020-2026

Microencapsulation is a procedure in which solid, liquid, or gaseous active ingredients are wrapped in other materials for the purpose of separating the active ingredient from the external environment. Moreover, the procedure provides a range of advantages, such as the safety of core materials, controlled release of cores, and enhanced handling of ingredients. The increased use of technology for masking the taste, odor, and activity of encapsulated materials is expected to fuel the market for products in the edible product market. The prevalence of various health problems and the tendency of consumers towards a healthier lifestyle will propel the market growth during the projected period.


According to an in-depth study by Market Research Future (MRFR), the global Micro-Encapsulation Industry is projected to hit USD 12,761.2 million and estimated to increase to 11.22% CAGR from 2018 to 2023 (forecast period).

Market Dynamics


The demand for micro-encapsulation is growing with rising demand for functional and fortified food and pharmaceutical products. It provides the incorporation of minerals, vitamins, flavors, essential oils, and other additives into food products to improve the functional properties of foods. The pharmaceutical industry is also heavily affected by microencapsulation technologies due to the benefits achieved by the manufacturers. In addition to drug encapsulation, other active ingredients such as peptides, proteins, and DNA / RNA molecules are also encapsulated in the pharmaceutical industry to meet consumer demand for value-added products. Even though a large number of market players have adopted microencapsulation technology in different industries, constant R&D needs to be sustained on the market. The high cost of R&D recourses, together with processing technology, hinders the growth of the industry. The production of microencapsulated material is sometimes tailored and often needed to be carried out on an industrial scale rather than on a pilot scale. This raises the manufacturing costs of the products and eventually leads to an increase in their costs.
