Gelatin Capsules Market

Gelatin Capsules Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2021-2031

Gelatin Capsules Market: Introduction

  • Gelatin capsules, often known as gel caps or gelcaps, are made of gelatin derived from animal skin or bone collagen. Gelatin, a pure protein, is tasteless, gluten-free, and GMO-free, and it provides a safe oral dose form that provides customers a pleasant experience. It enables manufacturers to modify based on color, shape, or size to satisfy the needs of active filling and targeted demographics. Gelatin also allows for diverse release profiles, ranging from enteric (slow) release to rapid release of the active fill, enabling producers to accommodate a wide range of fillings while satisfying customer demands.
  • Gelatin capsules are classified into two types: hard capsules (hardcaps) and soft capsules (softgels). Hardcaps are manufactured before the active component is filled. Contract manufacturers or brand owners fill the empty gelatin capsules with the active ingredient or medication in a subsequent stage. Softgels (or soft capsules) are hermetically sealed one-piece capsules that contain liquids or semisolid fillings. Softgels, unlike hard capsules, are filled at the same time the capsule is manufactured.

Key Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities of Global Gelatin Capsules Market

  • Nutraceuticals have gained popularity across a wide range of demographics and regions due to its ease of use in supplementing a regular diet and assisting individuals in maintaining optimal health. Rise in adoption of unhealthy lifestyles by urban consumers worldwide, particularly in developed areas, has fueled the demand for nutraceuticals, which is expected to be a key driver of the global gelatin capsules market in the coming years. Aside from nutraceuticals, expansion of the pharmaceutical industry into the cosmeceuticals sector offers significant opportunity for the gelatin capsules market.
  • Rise in popularity of capsules over alternative drug delivery forms as well as an increase in strategic alliances between empty capsule providers and gelatin producers is a significant factor driving the market
  • Furthermore, rise in geriatric population increases the prices for various therapy drugs and nutritional supplements in order to improve health outcomes. However, the animal origin of gelatin, price volatility, and technical constraints are projected to hamper the market during the forecast period.

North America to Capture Major Share of Global Gelatin Capsules Market

  • North America is expected to account for a major share of the global gelatin capsules market. Presence of prominent capsule manufacturers with huge production capabilities as well as the presence of several pharmaceutical giants with large production capacities that use these capsules are likely to boost the market in the region. Furthermore, capsules are a highly popular solid oral dose form and hence, the demand for gelatin capsules in the nutraceutical industry is high in the region.
  • The gelatin capsules market in Asia Pacific is estimated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period owing to the expansion of pharmaceutical industries in the region as well as favorable government efforts focused on the development of healthcare infrastructure
