Encapsulation is a complete embedding of liquid drops, solid particles, or gases in a solid substance (matrix). The primary reason behind encapsulation is to protect the inner material from harmful influences which includes light, oxygen, humidity during shelf life and during processing. The most common methods used for food encapsulation is extrusion due to cost-effective and excessive availability nature. The different technologies used in the production of encapsulated food products includes Spray-Drying, Spray-bed-drying, fluid-bed coating, spray-chilling, and others.
The global food encapsulation market valued USD XX million in 2018 and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% to reach USD XX million by 2026.
Increasing attention of consumers to health is resulting in a broad range of foods and dietary supplements which are developed with encapsulated substances, all in the fields of healthy foods and nutraceuticals. Food encapsulations improves the shelf-life of the products, and increases various physical parameters including taste, colour, and flavor. Huge quality difference between the encapsulated and non-encapsulated foods is expected to boost the utilization of encapsulation services by the nutraceutical, dietary supplements globally during forecast period. Furthermore, increasing technological adoption of sustainable food & beverages techniques by the manufacturers is further expected to boost global food encapsulation market globally during forecast period.
However, presence of stringent regulatory norms towards encapsulation of food products and narrow profit margin are major factors hindering the growth of food encapsulation market globally during forecast period.
Global food encapsulation market is segmented on the basis of application into functional food, dairy products, confectionaries, dietary supplements, and others.
Dietary Supplements segment is expected to dominate the global food encapsulation market owing to its extensive usage encapsulation technologies in the production supplements to increase the shelf life, taste, flavor and colour. Growing millennial preferences towards healthy diet intake and changing lifestyle are contributing to the growth of global probiotic supplements market. This is directly reflecting over the kids born to the millennials and Gen-X, as these parents are increasing their spending in dietary supplementations for their kids as a preventive health measure
By region, the global food encapsulation market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East and Africa.
North America is dominating the global food encapsulation market owing growing research and development activities by the major food & beverages manufacturers towards sustainable food practices. Currently, more than 60% of patents filed in microencapsulation technologies for food & beverages applications are originated from the United States. With increase in demand for encapsulation technology to protect, mask and control delivery of food ingredients, it is anticipated that number of paper and patents to increase in North America during forecast period.
Global food encapsulation market is consolidated with 3-4 major players are occupying significant market share, and rest of large group of companies. The market is currently in the development stage and experiencing huge investments by the food & beverages companies in inclusion of encapsulation technologies in food applications.
In December 2019, Blue Pacific Flavors and McCormick & Company entered into strategic collaboration for inclusion of FlavorCell (a technology of McCormick's Flavor Solutions) into its portfolio to provide high-impact, encapsulated flavor delivery in powdered beverages, confectionery and bakery products.
Some of the key players in the global food encapsulation market includes Aveka Group, ABCO Laboratories, Inc., Balchem Corporation, Cargill Inc., Firmenich Inc., are among many other companies.
