Key factors driving the global microencapsulation market include rising demand for functional foods, increasing acceptance of specialty detergents and growth of the pharmaceuticals industry. Properties of microencapsulation such as sustained release, targeted delivery and protection of core ingredients in the encapsulating shell are responsible for numerous applications of this technology. However, capital-intensive research to select the most suited technology and appropriate shell material required for microencapsulation adds to the cost of the already expensive technology. This is anticipated to hamper market growth during the forecast period. Newer applications of microencapsulation in paints & coatings in order to enhance their functionality are estimated to offer opportunities for the growth of the microencapsulation market during the forecast period.

Pharmaceuticals was the largest application segment of microencapsulation, accounting for over 65% share of the market in 2013. Controlled and sustained release of active ingredients, masking chemical odors and targeted drug release and delivery are some of the key parameters driving the high demand for microencapsulated pharmaceuticals. However, household products and food additives are projected to be the fastest growing markets during the forecast period. Changing consumer preference towards functional foods such as dietary supplements and probiotics is expected to drive demand for microencapsulation in the food additives market. Additionally, higher demand for fragrant detergents and antimicrobial cleaning agents for household usage is anticipated to augment the growth of the microencapsulation market during the forecast period.
