Empty Capsules Market Key Players, Competitive Strategies, Regional Analysis Forecast 2028

Empty medicine capsules are made either from gelatin, which is derived from animal byproduct known as collagen (pork skin, animal bones and fish bones) or plant polysaccharides or their derivatives (Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC), starch, pullulan and others) depending upon the medicine dosage forms. These cylindrical empty capsules are made in two halves: a smaller-diameter “body” which is filled with required drug dosage and then sealed using a bigger-diameter “cap”. Empty capsules are conventionally used as a dosage form for prescriptions, OTC drugs, herbal products, nutrient supplements, liquids and semi-solid dosage forms, especially for drugs that have low bioavailability, poor water solubility, critical stability, low dose/high potency and low melting points.
