Unlike hard capsules, soft capsules are thicker and need additional components like glycerin to acquire their soft texture. Based on the formula, the thickness of the capsules, its elasticity and its amplitude of excess moisture can be calibrated. Ideally suited for semi-solid or liquid fillings, soft capsules are widely used to provide a wide range of pharmaceuticals and a wide range of supplements that are nutritional range omega-3 fish oils. The main types of gelatin used in capsules are usually porcine or bovine raw materials. Depending on the fill, methodology and target market group, producers have flexibility in the type of feedstock, with some choosing a fusion of beef and pork options.

Capsules are fully enclosed units that typically have a longitudinal seam and are produced using a rotary die process. The capsules are delivered filled with the component and secured according to a specific procedure. In this process, the gelatin mass is enclosed in stainless steel tanks, then is coated on stainless steel drums, and two ribbons are formed. The unbroken, flexible ribbons of gelatin are then navigated on two rotating dies. When placing the capsule between the two rotating dies, it is simultaneously impregnated with active ingredients and then dried.

Softgel Capsules Market: Growth Factors

Sports nutrition is no longer followed by professional athletes and weightlifters. Marathons, world events, games, and gym goers have kept sports in the spotlight. The growing interest in body image and fitness has caused brands to break up into offering products for a healthy lifestyle. Consumers’ growing interest in health awareness will overtake and trump professional athletes. Therefore, retailers maintain sufficient shelf space for sports nutrition products. This space offers sports supplement manufacturers the opportunity to market sports nutrition products to a large and diverse consumer base in oral dosage form.

The growth in demand is also due to the fact that manufacturers are engaging in many ventures to offer unique empty capsules that are more adaptable and easy to use for nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and cosmeceutical industry applications. The taste of nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries is more leaning towards multiple empty capsules due to their acceptable properties for varied formulations like liquid and solid dosage forms, easy-to-use features when administering drugs orally or by inhalation .

The ongoing covid-19 pandemic has affected the majority of countries and sectors around the world. Nutraceutical, cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical companies, which are the major end users of softgels, have been influenced by the spread of the virus, lockdowns and trade restrictions.
