Global Food Encapsulation Market is estimated to reach $52.4 billion by 2024; growing at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2016 to 2024. Encapsulation of food involves integration of active agents such as enzymes, cells, food ingredients into small capsules. The encapsulation process enhances the stability, protects from moisture & heat, and maintains the viability of food materials. Functional food ingredients are majorly for encapsulation which can be incorporated into food or consumed independently as food. Polysaccharides, proteins, and lipids are most widely used for encapsulation in food applications. The future demand for encapsulated food will continue to expand as the food industry intends to maximize the benefits of additives and bioactive components in foods.
Global Food Encapsulation Market Size and Forecast, 2015 - 2024 (US$ Billion)
Adoption of latest innovations in food technology, rise in consumer health consciousness, expanding functional food market, time constraints of consumers, and increase in applications of food encapsulation are the major factors propelling the growth of the global food encapsulation market. However, long downtime for commercialization and complex process involved in maintaining the stability could hamper the market. Furthermore, advancements in encapsulating technology and emerging markets would create new opportunities for competitors in the coming years.
The global food encapsulation market is segmented on the basis of core phase, shell material, technology, application, and geography.
