Nanoencapsulation is a technology, which involves packaging of nanoparticles of gas, liquids or solids within a secondary material. The nanoparticles are known as core or active, and the secondary material is known as shell or matrix. The core includes active ingredients such as drugs, biocides, perfumes and vitamins whereas, shell provides isolation and protection to the core until its being released.

Nanoencapsulation in food industry, is used to deliver essential bioactive compounds to intended areas of the body. Various processes such as nanoemulsification, nanoestructuration, and nanocomposites are used to incorporate, absorb and disperse bioactive compounds such as antioxidants, proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates within nano-sized vesicles. The application of nanoencapsulation technology in the food industry enables delivery of difficult-to-attain nutrients to the body by incorporating them in functional and fortified food products. Furthermore, nanocapsulation in the form of nanomicellees (protein-based Carrier System) and liposomes are most widely used in food supplements and functional beverages.

Market Dynamics

Steadily growing demand for functional food products with enhanced bioavailability of nutrients is majorly driving growth of the global nanoencapsulation market. Furthermore, growing demand for nutraceuticals and the availability of a wide variety of nanocarrier based nutraceutical food products, containing nano-antimicrobials and nano-antioxidants is supporting growth of the market. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, the global nutraceutical ingredients market was valued at US$ 30.57 billion in 2016, and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.31% over the forecast period of 2018–2025 to reach US$ 57.46 billion by 2025.

Moreover, the nanoencapsulation technology enhances the stability and shelf life of the food products, which is considered as another factor driving the growth of the global nanoencapsulation for food products market.

However, manufacturing process of nutrient nanoparticles involves usage of high-energy consuming machines, in order to break food materials into nano-sized particles. Thus, high cost of machines and high energy demand makes the nutrient nanoparticles manufacturing process expensive. Thereby, high production cost of the nutrient nanoparticles, is a major challenge to growth of the global nanoencapsulation for food products market.

Market Outlook

  • In North America, the U.S. was the dominated country in the nanoencapsulation for food products market. This is majorly attributed to growing food and beverages industry in the country. According to the data provided by United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), in 2016, over 35,000 food and beverages manufacturing plants located throughout the country. Furthermore, high consumption of meat and bakery products is also propelling growth of the nanoencapsulation market in the region, as edible coatings of nanoparticles are used on vegetables, fruits, meats, and bakery products. According to the USDA, the total production of red meat in January to March 2018 was 13,166.9 million tons in the U.S. Thus, growing demand for meat products is anticipated to support growth of the nanoencapsulation for the food products market. Moreover, growing demand for food and beverages, with high vitamin content is boosting the market growth in North America, as nanoencapsulation technology is used to incorporate and absorb the vitamins within nano-sized vesicles. For instance, according to the Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, North America was dominant in the global vitamins market in 2016 and recoded high demand from the food and beverages sector.
  • Asia Pacific is anticipated to record the fastest growth in the global nanoencapsulation market, during the forecast period. Owing to rising awareness towards maintaing a healthy life style, functional food and beverages are largely gaining popularity, in the region. This in turn is expected to aid in growth of the global nanoencapsulation for food products market. Furthermore, growing food processing industry in the region, is anticipated to be another driver for the market growth. For instance, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), food processing industry in Japan was valued at US$ 216.1 billion in 2016. Therefore, these factors are expected to aid in growth of the market in the region of Asia Pacific over the forecast period.
