Market Overview:

The global enteric softgel capsules market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for softgel capsules as an alternative to hard gelatin capsules and tablets, rising prevalence of lifestyle diseases, and growing demand for nutraceuticals and functional foods. Based on type, the global enteric softgel capsules market can be segmented into gelatin type and vegetable type. The gelatin type segment is expected to account for a larger share of the market in 2018 owing to its superior properties such as high tensile strength, water resistance, and compatibility with a wide range of ingredients.

Global Enteric Softgel Capsules Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Enteric softgel capsules are designed to protect the ingredients from being broken down by stomach acids. This allows the ingredients to be released in the small intestine, where they can be absorbed into the bloodstream. Enteric softgel capsules are used to deliver medications that would otherwise be destroyed by stomach acids, such as certain types of antibiotics and drugs used to treat heartburn or ulcers.

Gelatin Type:

Gelatin is a protein that occurs in the connective tissues of animals and plants. It has been used as an ingredient in pharmaceutical formulations for over two centuries. Gelatin is extracted from animal sources such as bovine, porcine, poultry, and marine; whereas plant-derived gelatin can be obtained from beef bones or seaweed extracts.

Vegetable Type:

The vegetable type is a group of plants that grow underground and above-ground parts of the same plant are used to produce vegetable type enteric softgel capsules. The most commonly used vegetables for producing these capsules include amaranth, artichoke, asparagus, beets, broccoli rabe (Brassica juncea), cabbage leafy greens like kale and chard among others.

Application Insights:

The others application segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017. The antibiotic and antibacterial drugs application segment is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period owing to increasing prevalence of infectious diseases, especially among children. Furthermore, rising incidences of chronic diseases are anticipated to boost demand for enteric softgel capsules as they provide easy digestion and reduce gas formation by acting as antacids.

Antacid and antiflatulent preparations are also expected to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period due largely on account of their high consumption in Asia Pacific region. In addition, growing awareness regarding digestive comfort along with an increase in spending capacity is anticipated fuel demand for antacid drugs particularly among high-income class consumers across North America and Europe regions over the next eight years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global enteric softgel capsules market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period owing to increasing product consumption for treatment of acid reflux and ulcers, bacterial infections, and as an antibiotic. In addition, rising geriatric population prone to various diseases is anticipated to fuel demand for anti-diarrheal drugs in this region.

The Asia Pacific market was valued at USD X billion in 2017 and is projected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period due to high unmet medical needs coupled with rapidly growing healthcare expenditure levels in emerging economies such as China & India. Increasing investments by major pharmaceutical companies are also contributing towards growth of this regional market on account of rising awareness regarding benefits of these products over conventional tablets & capsules (mainly due their ease in administration).

Europe accounted for a significant share followed by North America owing mainlyto higher adoption rates observedin countries like Germany, U.K.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for convenience foods: The growing trend of busy lifestyles has led to an increase in the demand for convenient food options such as enteric softgel capsules. These capsules offer a quick and easy way to consume essential nutrients without having to chew or swallow large tablets.
  • Rising awareness about the health benefits of softgels: There is a growing awareness among consumers about the health benefits of taking supplements in the form of softgels. This is driving demand for enteric softgel capsules, which are seen as a more efficient and effective way to take supplements than traditional tablets or capsules.
  • Growing popularity of natural ingredients: A growing number of consumers are opting for natural ingredients over synthetic ones, due to concerns about the potential side effects of synthetic ingredients. Enteric softgel capsules made with natural ingredients are therefore seeing increasing demand from consumers looking for safe and healthy dietary supplements.
