Global Softgel Capsules Market Poised to Grow at a CAGR of 4.6% Through 2026

The global softgel capsules market is expected to register remarkable growth during the forecast period (2017 to 2026), according to a new market XploreMR. The growth of the market is mainly attributed to rising consumer awareness and concerns about body deficiencies, and subsequent consumption of vitamin and nutritional supplements in oral dosage formats.

Furthermore, increasing preference for oral dosage owing to effectiveness and ease in swallowing is acting as a growth driver to the softgel capsule market. On the other hand, increasing investments by manufacturers in research and development activities, coupled with advancements in technology have enabled the adoption of novel sources for producing softgel capsules.

These new sources have introduced vegetarian softgel capsules, and are also enabling seamless manufacturing procedures for softgel capsules. On the back of these factors, the global softgel capsules market is forecasted to progress at a healthy CAGR of 4.6% through the forecast period.

Burgeoning Demand for Green and Organic Products Fosters Market Growth

Over the years, the demand for natural and green products has been propelling as consumers seek natural alternatives. Furthermore, on the back of increasing levels of disposable income, consumers are exhibiting a willingness to pay premium prices for natural and organic products, which is expected to drive the demand for vegetarian softgel capsules (HPMC, starch, and pullulan softgel capsules).

Along similar lines, growing concerns and awareness among consumers towards healthcare spending are also positively impacting the demand for health supplements across the world. Likewise, the advent of softgel capsules plays a vital role among infants and children as well as old people, as they face the risk of not being able to swallow the tablet properly.

Growing Popularity of Sports Nutrition Propels Demand

Consumption of sports nutrition is not confined to professional athletes and weightlifters any more and is penetrating into global events, marathons, gym-goers, and game events, on the back of growing healthy and fitness trends globally. Increasing health-consciousness among consumers is propelling demand for the capsules equally. While sportsmen and professional athletes continue to channel sales, increased consumer demand for sports supplements is bestowing lucrative revenue opportunities to the manufacturers.

Leveraging the demand, retailers are increasing the shelf space for sports nutrition products, thus contributing to their growth in oral dosage format i.e. softgel capsules. Additionally, the advent of novel technologies for filling liquids and semi-solids into softgel capsules in pharmaceutical, cosmeceutical, and nutraceutical companies will continue to complement the growth of the softgel capsules market over the assessment period.

Asia Pacific to Bestows Lucrative Revenue Opportunities Backed by Increased Healthcare Spending

The European region is forecasted to remain the leading regional market for softgel capsules through the forecast period, while North America is poised to register healthy growth in the coming years. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific is expected to offer remunerative opportunities, owing to growing awareness about health supplements, increased consumer spending, and growing government spending on healthcare infrastructure. Furthermore, the presence of the geriatric population is another major growth attribute, contributing to the region's growth at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period.
