Empty Capsules Market is poised to value USD 4246 million by 2028 end at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period 2022 to 2028.

A capsule is a solid pharmaceutical dosage form in which a drug or combination of drugs is encapsulated inside a shell. Empty capsules are preferred for storing powder, drugs, and herbs. Tablets are harder to swallow than capsules. The pharmaceutical industry uses it to prepare therapeutic drugs. In various shapes, sizes, and colors, capsule shells are made from the gelatin-like material pullulan, HPMC, and starch. Throughout the pharmaceutical industry, gelatin-and-purified-water capsules are widely available. A rise in chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, and gastrointestinal diseases, as well as funding for capsule manufacturing units from private and government organizations, drive the growth of the global empty capsule market. Chronic diseases and a surge in demand for therapeutic drugs drive market growth. There is an increasing need for hard and soft gelatin capsules, which drive the market growth for empty capsules. Moreover, the surge in capsule drug delivery is expected to fuel market growth. In addition, healthcare supplements are becoming increasingly popular among people, as they strive to maintain good health. As well, clinical studies evaluating the safety and efficacy of a wide range of therapeutic drugs will contribute to market growth. Empty capsules are also growing in popularity due to an increase in the prevalence of geriatrics and an increase in the need for immunity boosters and dietary supplements. With increasing age, people tend to use more dietary supplements (two, three, four, and more) due to a weakening immune system. Soft gelatin capsules are used to fill dietary supplements and healthcare products, which further drives the market growth. During the forecast period, technological advances in the pharmaceutical industry will allow for the manufacture of plant-derived capsules to provide remunerative opportunities.
