Food Encapsulation: Market Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2016-2023

Encapsulation provides ways and means to protect food components, such as cells, enzymes, and food ingredients, in capsules. Encapsulation in food products is done for several reasons, including the protection of sensitive components, preservation and masking of the proper amount of flavors, minimal nutritional loss, and the presence of aroma, among others. Basically, food encapsulation involves packing liquids, gases, and solids in small capsules, ensuring the controlled release of components when required.

Various reasons supporting the demand for encapsulation in the food industry include the following: protection of the core material to reduce the reactivity of air, moisture, light, and other elements in the outer environment; adequate exposure of the core material; controlled modifications to the characteristics of the components; masking of flavor or aroma in the product; and others. Food encapsulation allows control over the release mechanism, physical form, composition, particle size, and cost involved. Since all the factors play a pivotal role while a food product is being developed, the food encapsulation market's growth is predicted to increase significantly in the next five to six years.

Increasing consumption of convenience foods and functional foods among consumers has led food manufacturers to develop products catering to the demand for better taste, versatility, flavors, and others. Also, the demand for ready-to-eat products is witnessing a surge among consumers, which is anticipated to further drive demand for technologies leading to longer shelf lives and ensuring flavor, taste, and quality in the final product. Food encapsulation is such a technology that facilitates satisfying consumer demand for the aforementioned factors.

Thus, the increasing inclination of consumers towards convenience and functional food products is a key factor stimulating the food encapsulation market's growth. On the other hand, there has been an increasing demand for food encapsulation in nutraceutical products. With the increasing demand for food encapsulation in food products, techniques such as spray drying and glass encapsulation are expected to gain significant traction among food manufacturers.
