As per Future Market Insights' latest industry analysis, the valuation for the global softgel capsules market was around US$ 1.7 Bn in 2022, and is projected to exhibit growth at a CAGR of close to 6.0% over the forecast period.

Recent years have seen a significant increase in interest in the oral delivery of medications with low water solubility due to the development of soft gelatin capsules (SGCs) delivery systems. This can be explained by the surge of low-solubility medications in the pipeline and the difficulties in creating bioavailable and consistent dose forms.

These drugs are encapsulated inside SGCs, which is a method employed to transport the active constituents to the systemic circulation, to overcome some formulation constraints. SGCs feature great dose accuracy and homogeneity, as well as higher consistency in manufacturing and product stability.

This is crucial for drugs that are susceptible to oxidative and hydrolytic breakdown. The expanding cosmetics industry's desire for soft gel capsules to supply cosmeceuticals in the form of capsules drives the growth of the worldwide soft gel capsules market.

The rising consumption of supplements in capsule form increases demand for soft gel capsules, propelling the global soft gel capsules market. The pharmaceutical industry's use of soft gel capsules is also aided by improvements to the capsules' outer shell and compatibility with the ingredients inside, which have become two of the market's main growth drivers.

Owed to the aforementioned factors, the global softgel capsules market is set to reach an estimated valuation of US$ 3.1 Bn in 2032.
