Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Microencapsulation Market By Applications (Pharmaceuticals, Household Utilities, Agrochemicals, Food And Feed Additives, And Others Including PCM) and By Geography” report to their offering.

Microencapsulation is an application process of micro-coating small particles or droplets to enhance its properties. These small particles can be solids, liquids or gases such as food ingredients, drugs, flavors, pesticides, enzymes, vitamins, agrochemicals, catalysts, cells or other micrometric materials. Microcapsules are tiny spherical products of microencapsulation, having uniform coating of polymeric and non-polymeric materials. Ethyl cellulose, polyvinyl alcohol, gelatin and sodium alginate are the most utilized materials for coating. Pan coating, spray drying, and others are the techniques that are incorporated for coating the microcapsules.

Rising demand for functional foods, growing demand of microencapsulation in pharmaceutical and detergents market are the major drivers for growth of the global microencapsulation market. In addition, growing demand for microencapsulation in textile industry is a opportunity for wide spread growth. However, the development of functional food ingredients to be incorporated into the food is a challenge for this market. In addition, upcoming nanotechnology and macrotechnology in pharmaceuticals will restrain the growth of the microencapsulation market.

The global microencapsulation market report covers segmentation by applications such as pharmaceuticals, household utilities, agrochemicals, food and feed additives and others including phase change material (PCM).
