Empty Capsules Market to Surpass US$ 2.79 Billion Threshold by 2025 Globally.

Gelatin has widely been used material for empty capsules and is obtained from natural sources such as bovine gelatin and porcine gelatin. Two types of capsules can be manufactured using gelatin such as hard gelatin capsules and soft gelatin capsules. However, these capsules have limitations owing to the nature of gelatin as certain compounds cannot be mixed with gelatin such as highly water soluble compounds. Introduction of other compatible materials has widened the scope of applications for these products. For instance, introduction of non-gelatin capsules, which are synthetic (hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose) as well as vegetarian capsules has aided in growth of the market. Vegetarian capsules such as pullulan are made from tapioca plant and offers several advantage over gelatin capsules. Vegetarian capsules cause lesser allergies as compared to other forms. Moreover, people with hypersensitivity to cow and bovine products can consume vegetarian capsules. Thus, demand for vegetarian capsules is expected to increase significantly over the forecast period.
