Microencapsulation is described as a process of enclosing micron sized particles of solids or droplets of liquids or gasses in an inert shell, which in turn isolates and protects them from the external environment as well as control the drug release profile. Microencapsulated particle is having diameter between 3 (-) 800µm which differ them from other technologies such as nanotechnology and macroparticle in their morphology and internal structure. This review paper will address the background of micro encapsulation technology, commonly used microencapsulation methods with its advantages and disadvantages and its applications in pharmaceutical field. This article also gives an overview on the general aspects and recent advances in drug-loaded microparticles to improve the efficiency of various medical treatments. This article contains the traditional and the recent pharmaceutical drug delivery system and also established as a unique carrier system for many pharmaceuticals for Novel drug delivery system (NDDS), latest formulation delivery of DNA vaccines prodrug approach, bio degradable and biocompatible material. Other than pharmaceutical microcapsules are widely used in delivery of probiotic, pesticide industry, food technology, beverage and cell immobilization etc.
