 What is Empty Capsules? How Big is Empty Capsules Market?

Empty capsules are stable shells used to enclose medications administered in the patient’s body in various dosage forms. They are usually formulated with gelatin and non-gelatin materials, including hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), pullulan, and starch. The gelatin-based capsules are animal-based, made from pig meat, cattle, and chicken connective tissues and possess a high collagen content. Whereas, vegetarian or non-gelatin capsules, are prepared from starch and HPMC combination. They are widely used to store therapeutic drugs, powders, and herbs. As a result, empty capsules find extensive applications in treating illnesses, preparing dietary supplements, preventing common diseases, such as colds and coughs, and manufacturing antacids and antiflatulents.

Empty Capsules Market Trends and Drivers:

The global empty capsules market is primarily driven by a significant rise in the prevalence of cardiovascular and chronic diseases, especially among the geriatric population. In line with this, the development of capsule-in-capsule technology that ensures the gastrointestinal safety of patients who did not receive capsule medicine has catalyzed market growth.

Besides this, the surging adoption of non-gelatin capsules in the healthcare industry due to their moderate strength, clarity, and resistance to oil and fat has augmented the product demand. Moreover, extensive investments in research and development (R&D) projects for the introduction of innovative therapeutic drugs and pharmaceuticals are other major growth-inducing factors.

Additionally, the rising demand from manufacturers for immediate-release capsules to produce medicinal products, such as antibiotics, painkillers, dietary supplements, inhalers, antibacterial, and antiacids, is accelerating the product demand. Other factors, including a rise in demand for nutritional supplements, easy access to advanced treatment options, and a surge in capsule drug delivery forms, are also anticipated to propel the market growth.
