Liquid Capsule Filling Machines Market Progressing on Back of Rapidly Rising Demand for Nutraceuticals

Mar 16,2020 | Packaging

Increasing consumer focus on health and wellness, coupled with awareness about healthier lifestyles and the effectiveness of dietary supplements among populations has propelled the demand for health supplements. Liquid capsule formulations are easy to ingest and get absorbed by the body faster than tablets. This has resulted in the popularity of liquid-filled capsules as health supplements in the nutraceutical industry.

High consumption of capsules has created steady demand for effective capsule filling solutions, which is fuelling the demand for liquid capsule filling machines, globally. As such, the global liquid capsule filling machines market is forecasted to reach a valuation of nearly US$ 210 Mn by the end of the decade.

“Key manufacturers of liquid capsule filling machines are focusing on technological development to offer automated large-scale capsule manufacturing capabilities to meet the increasing demand for capsules in the market. Companies are coming up with technologies that offer the integration of various processes into one automatic capsule filling equipment. In, key players are acquiring or collaborating with mid-sized firms to penetrate better into the market and gain significant market share.”

Key Takeaways of Liquid Capsule Filling Machines Market Study

  • Drug manufacturers are the key end users of liquid capsule filling machines, and account for a lion’s share in the global market. Most of the leading pharma manufacturers have in-house filling stations, while mid-sized pharma manufacturers tend to outsource their filling needs to contract manufacturers.
  • Automatic liquid capsule filling machines are preferred over semi-automatic ones. End users that require continuous output opt for fully-automatic machines, while R&D labs and small-scale pharma manufacturers opt for semi-automatic liquid capsule filling machines.
  • Hardgel capsules account for a major share in the liquid capsule filling machines market, as they are easier and economical to manufacture.
  • Liquid capsule filling machines with the output capacity of 12,000-25,000 C/hr are mostly preferred for high speed with precision in commercial applications. Thus, the segment is estimated to generate an incremental opportunity of around US$ 19 Mn by the end of the decade.
  • North America is estimated to be the largest market for liquid capsule filling machines, accounting for over 35% of the global market. This can be primarily attributed to the fact that North America houses leading pharmaceutical manufacturers and advanced R&D labs.
