23-Jun-2022 | Zion Market Research

The global encapsulated flavors and fragrances market was worth around USD 7.8 billion in 2021 and is estimated to grow to about USD 10.5 billion by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 5.3 percent over the forecast period

Encapsulation in flavor technology is the process of covering an active compound with a protective layer to protect the compound from evaporating, reacting, or migrating in food. The benefits of flavor encapsulation involve protecting key flavors from changing, delivering exceptional flavor impact in the final food product, providing visually & distinctly flavored particles, and other such assistance.

Fragrance encapsulation has tremendous application in the textile industry as they are applied on various products like cushions, sofa coverings, and curtains to provide aromatherapy as well as personal garments like scarves and ties, to name a few. The global encapsulated flavors and fragrances market employs various encapsulating techniques depending on the fragrance and wall material to form protective coatings such as spheres, capsules, or vesicles.

Covid-19 did not have a significant impact on the global market apart from the initial phase arising due to transport restrictions and temporary closure of manufacturing units. However, once the restrictions were lifted, the global market started to gain momentum and is showing steady signs of growth since then.

The home decor segment has been growing exponentially in the last few years owing to the rise in the number of affordable and luxurious home care product manufacturers as well as the emergence of large-scale retailers. This is also coupled with increasing consumer databases in the clothing retail sector due to the rising population. Both of these segments are heavy consumers of encapsulated fragrances. With the hectic lifestyle led by a large section of the world population, there is a changing preference for easy-to-cook or ready-to-eat food items. This preference shift is aided by the rising disposable income of the consumer group and the presence of multiple healthy RTC or RTE items. This is propelling the use of encapsulated flavors where combination flavors have become more popular. The confectionery section of the food industry is also witnessing a surge in demand especially floral flavors like lavender or rose. All of these reasons are anticipated to assist the global encapsulated flavors and fragrances market growth during the forecast period.

However, high costs associated with the encapsulation techniques are expected to restrain the global market growth whereas the growing preference for non-conventional and unique flavors will provide the global market expansion opportunities. Flavoring qualities influencing the encapsulation process's ability to retain volatile components may act as a challenge for global market growth.
