Microencapsulation technology allows a compound to be encapsulated inside a tiny sphere known as microsphere/microcapsule, having an average diameter as small as 1 mm to several hundred micro meters. Many different active materials like drugs, enzymes, vitamins, pesticides, flavors, and catalysts have been successfully encapsulated inside micro balloons or microcapsules made from a variety of polymeric and non-polymeric materials including polysaccharides, proteins, lipids & waxes, resins, and others. These microcapsules release their contents at appropriate time by using different release mechanisms, depending on the end use of encapsulated products. This technology has been used in several fields including pharmaceutical, food and feed, home and personal care, industrial and chemical, agriculture, and others (defense, energy generation, & catalysis). In defense sector, this technology has introduced the new concept of self-healing composites as well as chemical decontaminating fabrics.

The Microencapsulation Market is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 11.7% From 2020 to 2027 to Reach $17.31 Billion by 2027.
