Report Digest

Global Softgel Capsule Market: Overview

Softgel capsules are drug formulations which are unique in their packaging of the drug concentrate in a manner that increases efficiency of drug delivery. These capsules utilize a gelatin or starch coating around a liquid or semi-solid pharmaceutical preparation, which ensures that the preparation reaches the stomach and enteric system intact, increasing the bioavailability of said preparation. Drugs are often not able to reach good bioavailability in the human body due to their early dissolution in pre-enteric secretions. Softgel capsules circumvent that problem and hence are utilized today for various drug delivery systems. 

It is pertinent to note here that as increase in demand of nutraceutical products such as vitamins, micronutrients and other supplements grows, owing to rapid ageing of the world population and poor diets, demand for softgel capsule would grow in tandem, states TMRR. It notes that from 2019 to 2029, new opportunities will be observed in the global softgel capsule market landscape.

This is set to drive demand for dietary supplements over the next few years, increasing demand for efficient drug delivery systems such as the softgel capsules.
  • A major chunk of dietary supplements is consumed by the sports industry to enhance performance among athletes, and even among the general populace. The global sports industry is expected to grow steadily over the next few years as more and more people take to physically strenuous outdoor activities. This is anticipated to drive the global softgel market forward over the forecast period.
  • A hindrance to growth in this market could be the requirement for specialized processing machinery, which makes the end-product more expensive compared to conventional drug formulations. Also, the shelf life of these formulations is poorer than conventional drugs, hence can be a deterrent for the softgel capsule market.
