Industry Overview of Empty Capsules

Empty capsules are stable shells that enclose medications in various forms, such as granules and pellets, for administration in the patient’s body. They are commercially accessible in two types: gelatin and non-gelatin. Gelatin capsules, available as hard or soft variants, are animal-based shells derived from collagen found in pig meat, beef, and chicken connective tissues. In contrast, non-gelatin or vegetarian capsules are composed of a blend of starch and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC). Presently, empty capsules are widely utilized in healthcare and therapeutic settings, serving a variety of applications.

What are the growth prospects and trends in the empty capsules industry?

The increasing incidences of cardiovascular and chronic illnesses, as well as the growing older population, are driving the growth of the empty capsule market. Additionally, the introduction of capsule-in-capsule technology, which ensures gastrointestinal safety for patients who cannot swallow traditional capsule medication, contributes to market growth.

Furthermore, manufacturers’ rising demand for immediate-release capsules for producing a wide range of medicinal products, including antibacterial drugs, antacids, inhalers, dietary supplements, painkillers, and antibiotics, fuels market expansion. The rapid expansion of the healthcare industry and the adoption of non-gelatin capsules like hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) due to their transparency, moderate strength, and resistance to fat and oil properties are propelling the market growth.

Moreover, increased investments in research and development (R&D) activities within the healthcare sector to introduce innovative therapeutics and pharmaceutical drugs have a positive impact on market growth. Several other factors, such as easy access to advanced treatment options, strategic collaborations between gelatin manufacturers and empty capsule suppliers, and the growing demand for dietary supplements, immunity boosters, and medications create a favorable market outlook.
