Microencapsulation is a technology which involves coating an active ingredient in a shell. This allows sustained release of the active ingredient. Microencapsulation is deployed to increase stability and product life of the core material. This technology helps in controlled release of the encased active ingredient, thereby offering sustained benefits. The technology is broadly used by several end-user industries such as pharmaceuticals, food, agrochemicals, etc. Most of the industry players employ this technology to produce their final products such as drugs, detergents, fertilizers, etc.
Microencapsulation Market: Key Players
The research study includes profiles of leading companies operating in the global microencapsulation market. Key players profiled in the report include: BASF, Royal FrieslandCampina, Syngenta Crop Protection, Koninklijke DSM, Givaudan, Firmenich, Symrise, International Flavors & Fragrances, Sensient Technologies & Lycored Corp.
BASF enter into a collaboration with University of California, Davis for the development of new microencapsulation technology. The university has developed a technology combining multiple energy-intensive processing steps into one industrially efficient and scalable spray-drying step.
Drivers for the Global Microencapsulation Market:
The demand for microencapsulation is increasing with the growth in demand for functional and fortified food & pharmaceutical products. It provides integration of minerals, vitamins, flavors, essential oils, and other additives in food products to enhance the functional properties of products. Moreover, the pharmaceutical sector is also greatly influenced by microencapsulation technologies due to the benefits achieved by the manufacturers. Along with the encapsulation of drugs, other active ingredients such as peptides, proteins, and DNA/RNA molecules are also encapsulated in the pharmaceutical sector to meet the market demand for value-added products. Rising trend of functional foods. However, the Increasing acceptance of specialty detergents & cleaning agents is boosting the growth of the market.
Opportunities for the Global Microencapsulation Market:
Rapidly transforming lifestyles towards healthier regime combined with changing eating habits of individuals are the primary reason to drive the microencapsulation market growth during forecasted times. Microencapsulation technology captures the vital dietary nutrients and supplements in edible enclosing additives, as it may directly affect the taste and color of the end product. Moreover, the procedure offers several benefits such as protection of core materials, controlled release of core and improved handling of ingredients. Increasing use of the technology in masking taste, odor and activity of encapsulated materials is anticipated to fuel the product demand in edible product sector. Surging awareness regarding the benefits of microencapsulated medicinal capsules and dietary supplements is propelling the market growth.
Restrains for the Global Microencapsulation Market:
Importance for detailed research in order to choose the suitable method and core materials for the procedure is the key restraining factor for microencapsulation market growth.
