According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, Empty Capsules Market by Product, Raw Material, Therapeutic Application, and End User: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2025, the global empty capsules market was valued at $1,841.5 million in 2017 and is projected to reach $3,707.5 million by 2025 growing at a CAGR of 9.1% from 2018 to 2025. Among raw materials, the pig meat segment accounted for three-sevenths share of the total market in 2017.

Capsules are the second most common form of dosage for the oral administration of drugs after tablets. These are largely used in the nutraceutical and pharmaceutical sectors. Reduction in the timelines of drug development under standard conditions has been the key factor driving the production of drugs delivered in the form of capsules among pharmaceutical and nutraceutical manufacturers. In addition, this strategy enables pharmaceutical manufacturers to reduce the time required to introduce the drug in the market. The other advantage includes protection of a drug substance from various external factors, such as natural or artificial light during production, storage, administration, and use. Furthermore, capsules act as an efficient shield, which prevents the enclosed drugs from decomposition.

Based on the product, the global empty capsules market is classified into gelatin capsules and non-gelatin capsules. Gelatin capsules are further bifurcated into hard gelatin capsules (HGCs) and soft gelatin capsules (SGCs). The gelatin segment dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to maintain this trend throughout the forecast period. Gelatin has been the standard choice of raw material for the development of hard shell capsules that can efficiently hold active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). Whereas, the non-gelatin capsules segment are expected to grow at the fastest pace from 2018 to 2025. An increase in demand for hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) capsules is the major contributor to the robust CAGR of the non-gelatin capsules segment in the global market. Furthermore, a major shift in consumer behavior has been observed toward the use of vegetarian capsules in the recent years.

Based on therapeutic application, the market is divided into antibiotic & antibacterial drugs, vitamin & dietary supplements, antacids & anti-flatulent preparations, cardiac therapy drugs, and other applications. The antibiotic & antibacterial drugs segment dominated the global market in 2017 and is anticipated to continue this dominance throughout the forecast period. However, the vitamin & dietary supplements segment is expected to grow at the fastest pace throughout the forecast period. Consumption of antibiotics has considerably increased in the recent years. Increasing consumption of antibiotics, either prescription or over-the-counter, has resulted in incessant use of antibiotics for the treatment of ailments across the globe.
