Global Pharmaceutical Gelatin Market: Overview

The development of the global pharmaceutical gelatin market is estimated to be driven by the unique and versatile functional characteristics of gelatin in many pharmaceutical applications. In addition to that, a rise in the demand for gelatin capsules owing to the growing incidences of chronic illnesses coupled with the expansion of the ageing population across the globe is expected to work in favor of the global pharmaceutical gelatin market over the timeframe of assessment, from 2019 to 2029.

Pharmaceutical gelatins are extremely dynamic and highly useful in several biomedical and medical applications. These products come from natural sources and they have witnessed high demand for use in several pharmaceutical applications such as softgel capsules and hard capsules. On the other hand, surging prices of raw materials along with cultural restrictions pertaining to the consumption of bovine or porcine-derived gelatin are estimated to challenge growth of the global pharmaceutical gelatin market in the years to come.

The three important parameters of high importance that have been taken into account for the segmentation of the global pharmaceutical gelatin market include source, application, function, and region.
