Nevertheless, growing acquisitions in untapped markets by pharmaceutical producers provide lucrative prospects to grow the market.

Market Trends

The segment of non-gelatin capsules is expected to develop at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period for the capsule type of segment. The growth of the segment is motivated by the increasing demand for non-animal products and the advantages provided by these capsules over gelatin-based ones, such as low hygroscopicity, physical stability, stability in various temperature and humidity ranges and low moisture content.

The category of dietary supplements is expected to see a higher industry growth rate. Factors such as increased health consciousness and increased affordability in developing countries (such as India, China, and Brazil), increased prevalence of lifestyle diseases, and increased use of vitamin capsules lead to the growth of this category due to their availability as over the counter (OTC) medicines. With the rapid increase in pharmaceutical production in APAC over the past few years, the remarkable growth of the North America region is projected to be driven by many factors. The reasons include the rising capability of pharmaceutical production and the large pool of patients in the area of North America.
