Empty capsules refer to a stable shell encapsulating medicines that are administered in the patient's body in various dosage forms, such as granules and pellets. They are commercially available in two varying types, gelatin and non-gelatin. The gelatin capsules (hard and soft) are a high collagen animal-based medicine manufactured from pig meat and beef and chicken connective tissues. On the other hand, the non-gelatin, or vegetarian capsule, is produced from the blend of starch and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC). Currently, empty capsules find extensive applications in healthcare and therapeutic applications.

Empty Capsules Market Trends:

The increasing prevalence of cardiovascular and chronic diseases and the rising geriatric population are some of the key factors driving the empty capsule market growth. In line with this, the introduction of capsule-in-capsule technology to ensure gastrointestinal safety of those patients that did not receive capsule medication is another growth-inducing factor. Moreover, the rising demand for the immediate-release capsule by manufacturers for producing various medicinal products, such as antibacterial, antiacids, inhalers, dietary supplements, painkillers, and antibiotics, are contributing to the market growth.

The rapid expansion in the healthcare industry and the widespread adoption of non-gelatin capsules, such as hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) due to its moderate strength, transparency, and resistance to oil and fat properties, are propelling the market growth. Additionally, the increasing investments in the research and development (R&D) activities in the healthcare sector for introducing innovative therapeutics and pharmaceutical drugs is positively stimulating the market growth. Other factors, such as the easy access to advanced treatment options, strategic collaborations between the empty capsule suppliers and gelatin manufacturers, and the growing demand for various dietary supplements, immunity boosters, and drugs, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
