Growth Factors:

The overall growth of the empty capsules market is largely driven by the growing adoption of capsule formulations among the growing geriatric population, the growth of the pharmaceutical market, increasing R&D activities & clinical trial studies, and advancements in capsule delivery technologies. Emerging markets, with their low manufacturing costs, are expected to present significant opportunities for players. Other areas of opportunity are the development of halal gelatin and vegetarian capsules.

Driver: Increasing demand for nutraceuticals
According to Nova one advisor, The global Empty Capsules market gathered revenue around USD 2.0 Billion in 2020 and market is set to grow USD 4.7 Billion by the end of 2027 and is estimated to expand at a modest CAGR of 7.9% during the prediction period 2021 to 2027.. Nutraceutical products are usually rich in fiber, antioxidants, heart-healthy ingredients, vitamins and minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, calcium, and whole grains.

Over the last few years, the demand for nutraceuticals has been on the rise due to the growing prevalence of non-communicable diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart ailments, and lung disorders. Also, during the COVID-19 pandemic, personal health has gained prominence in a large part of the global population. This trend has positioned the nutraceutical industry for further expansion and success in the coming years. This is a positive indicator of market growth as most nutraceuticals are marketed in the capsule form.

Opportunity: Expansion of capsule production in emerging countries
The traditionally lucrative pharmaceuticals market is becoming challenging from a growth perspective due to the diminishing drug pipeline, government-induced pressure to reduce costs and regulations on innovative products. This is encouraging pharmaceutical manufacturers to move their manufacturing bases closer to high-growth emerging markets. Through this, manufacturers can take advantage of low-cost manufacturing along with several financial benefits in terms of attractive tax rates and lenient regulatory guidelines for manufacturing.

A number of major pharmaceutical manufacturers are either planning capacity expansions of their existing plants in emerging countries or setting up new manufacturing plants in emerging markets such as China and India. These investments are aiding the growth of pharmaceutical production, in turn, increasing the demand for empty capsules. Some of the recent expansions in this industry include:

In February 2021, Qualicaps Europe S.A.U expanded its presence in the South Asia region. In addition to two production sites based in Europe, the company has capsule manufacturing experts located in the EMEA and South Asia.
In October 2020, Lonza invested USD 93 million (CHF 85 million) in its Capsules and Health Ingredients (CHI) Division, a dosage form delivery partner to the biopharma and health nutrition industry. The investment has been made to expand its overall production capacity of capsules within CHI’s Capsugel portfolio by 30 billion capsules annually while maintaining the high-quality standards with Lonza’s Sigma Series. The investment is expected to increase its capsule production capacity by 15.0%. Lonza’s newest investment will be released to eight sites, including Bornem, Belgium; Colmar, France; Greenwood, South Carolina; Haryana, India; Jakarta, Indonesia; Puebla, Mexico; Sagamihara, Japan; and Suzhou, China.
Challenges: Rising prices and lower availability of raw materials in the gelatin industry
Globally, the demand for gelatin and its raw materials has witnessed a significant increase over the entire application spectrum—the pharmaceutical industry, in which the demand for capsules for pharmaceutical production has registered a vast increase, and the food processing, nutraceutical, leather, cosmetic, dying & tanning, and paper production industries. The use of gelatin in food preparations has increased six-fold in the last decade. Similar trends have been observed in the nutraceutical and cosmetic industry, where gelatin is used for the production of dietary supplement capsules, lotions, shampoos, hair sprays, and creams. On the other hand, the leather, tanning, and paper production industries use pigskin and bovine skin for the production of various commercial goods.

The increase in demand has boosted the prices of these ingredients. In the last five years, the gelatin manufacturing industry has faced challenges due to the lower availability of raw materials—bovine hide and bones and pigskin. Raw material costs constitute almost 50–55% of the total costs in the gelatin industry. According to a report by Nitta Gelatin (India), the gelatin industry consumes around 18,000 tons of crushed bones per month in India. However, availability came down to 15,000 tons in the earlier months of 2017. The annual gelatin production is expected to come down to 15,000 tons from 20,000 tons in 2018, due to the non-availability of bones owing to the ban imposed by the government on the slaughter of cattle.

The outbreak of bovine and swine diseases has resulted in regulatory restrictions and guidelines for bovine and pig farmers, which has increased the cost of farming. Feed prices have also increased. The cumulative effect of these factors and the subsequent price hikes have been passed onto end users such as gelatin manufacturers and thus have increased the overall gelatin prices. The slow declining availability of raw material is, therefore, intensifying the demand for these ingredients in the pharmaceutical industry, thus creating a supply-demand imbalance. Thus, raw material supply has to be considered carefully to meet the demand for raw material and gelatin across all industries.
