Capsule counter are the type of machines are utilized for counting a fixed number of capsules of a fixed size and for filling capsules in rigid containers and polybags. These counting machines are made from anodized aluminum and polycarbonate, and stainless steel and are used as a scoop for pushing into a pile of tablets. The machine is majorly used in pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, and biotechnology industries due to its light weight, low noise, and small volume. It enables accurate counting, is easy to operate and convenient to maintain.

Constantly developing technology in the medical field to generate safe, accurate, and efficient medications is projected to positively influence the capsule counter market in the automated packaging industry over the forecast period. The capsule counting machines are designed and manufactured to automatically sort and count varied sized and shaped capsules in bulk at high speeds. These capsule counting machines ensure appropriate sorting and counting of the drugs before they are moved out for the final packaging. These factors are anticipated to drive the market growth in the coming years.

Increasing growth of the pharmaceutical industry globally has impacted the growth of the packaging industry which in turn intensifies the demand for capsule counting machines in the drug packaging production line. Constant shifting from centralized hospital pharmacies to decentralized pharmacies is also projected to enhance the demand for capsule counting machines over the forecast period. However, issues such as cross contamination in terms of their operation is projected to hamper the growth of the capsule counter market in the coming years. Also, capsules are exposed to the same environment and surface while counting in the capsule counting machine which leaves behind the residue of different drugs. This in turn raises the issue of cross contamination of the drugs which can be harmful to end-users. These factors are expected to hinder the market growth of capsule counters over the forecast period. However, technological developments are taking place in the capsule counting machines market wherein various operating companies are aiming to develop remote capsule or tablet counting machines to improve efficiency and accuracy in medical dispensing. These developments in the industry are further expected to drive the market growth in the coming years.

The global capsule counter market can be segregated based on product type, automation, capsule type, application, distribution channel, and region. The product type segment of capsule counter machines is segmented into disc type counting machine and digital capsule counter machine. Based on automation, the capsule counter market is segmented into semi-automatic counting machine, fully automatic counting machine, and multi-channel counting machine. Semi-automatic counting machine has the ability of counting 2000 pills per minute; fully automatic machine can count up to 2500 pills per minute, and multi-channel counting machine can count up to 1 – 9,998 pieces in a minute. The capsule type is categorized into coated, uncoated, soft gelatin capsules, hard gelatin capsules. The application segment of the capsule counter market is segregated into biotechnology companies, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, food industry, and others.

The distribution channel of the capsule counter machine is segmented into online and offline channel. Based on region, the capsule counter market can be segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia Pacific is anticipated to acquire major share of the market in terms of revenue over the forecast period. The growth of the capsule counter market in the region is attributed to the increasing demand for medicines. China and India are projected to contribute majorly to the capsule counter market due to the increasing population growth rate resulting in the rapid development of the pharmaceutical industry in the region.

Prominent players operating in the global capsule counter market are CapsulCN International, Romaco, DATA Detection Technologies, Cremer, IMA Pharma, Capmatic, Healthmark, Tianshui Huayuan Equipment Science & Technology Co., Ltd., Shanghai Looglobal Technology Co., Ltd., Busch Machinery, Vanguard Pharmaceutical Machinery, NJM Packaging, Kirby Lester, Deitz Company, and KBW Packaging.
