North America Microencapsulation Market Size $12.23 Billion By 2032 CAGR 10.1%

North America Microencapsulation Market Size Worth $12.23 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 10.1%

The North America microencapsulation market size is expected to reach USD 12.23 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “North America Microencapsulation Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Technology (Coating, Emulsion, Spray Technologies, Dripping, and Others); By Application; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2023 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

Rising usage of microencapsulation in the pharma and healthcare industry for targeted drug delivery and controlled release of active compounds and demand from the food & beverage industry to enhance the flavor, aroma, and texture of products are prominent factors driving the market growth. Rising focus of companies towards the development of new microencapsulated products for different applications and investing in research & development activities to expand applications across different industries, including cosmetics & personal care, and agrochemicals, further contributing to the market’s growth.

Furthermore, it has been studied that functional ingredients bring multiple benefits to humans, but they are highly sensitive to oxidative degradation during manufacturing or storage and have poor stability of chemicals. Thereby, companies are developing microcapsules by encapsulating the active ingredients in a matrix with the aim of enhancing the stability and bioavailability of active ingredients, which, in turn, generates lucrative growth opportunities for the market.
