Dublin, March 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Microencapsulation Market by Technology (Spray, Emulsion, Dripping), Core Material (Pharma & Healthcare Drugs, PCM, Food Additives, Fragrances), Application (Pharma, Household, Agrochemicals, Textiles), Shell Material, and Region - Forecast to 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global microencapsulation market was valued at USD 8.5 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 15.5 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 12.9% from 2020 to 2025.

The market is driven by factors such as the increasing demand for fortified food products for the taste masking and enhanced shelf-life properties, the increasing demand for the controlled-release agrochemicals, growing construction and construction materials, and widespread applications in household & personal care.

The high costs associated with the microencapsulated process, the regulations on the maximum quantity of microencapsulated ingredients that can be added to food &beverages, and the limited availability of natural sources of high-quality raw materials inhibit the growth of the microencapsulation market.

"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. Thus, there is a strong demand for microencapsulated materials from food & beverage manufacturers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, and textile and construction material manufacturers in this region.

The key players in this market include BASF (Germany), Evonik Industries (Germany), Syngenta Crop Protection (Switzerland), Royal FrieslandCampina (Netherlands), Koninklijke DSM (Netherlands), Givaudan (Switzerland), Firmenich (Switzerland), Symrise (Germany), International Flavors & Fragrances (US), Lycored Corp. (UK), and Sensient Technologies (US).
