Market Overview

The global vegetarian softgel capsules market size was valued US$ XX million in 2021 and is estimated to reach US$ XX million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2022-2029).

Vegetarian softgel capsules are made from natural plant ingredients and are free of animal derivatives, GMOs, gluten, and modified sugar. Starch, pullulan, and cellulose are used to make them (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose). Consumers looking for an animal-free alternative to gelatin capsules will love vegetarian capsules. The market for vegetarian softgel capsules is growing due to an increase in the vegan population.

Market Dynamics

The advancement of the global vegetarian softgel capsules market is being driven by an increase in the vegan population, the availability of natural raw materials, and an increase in the number of health-conscious people.

An increase in the number of health-conscious people globaly will boost the market

Professional athletes and weightlifters are not the only people who practice sports nutrition. Global events, marathons, gym-goers, and games have all pushed sports into the spotlight, and rising interest in fitness and body image has prompted brands to reposition themselves as providers of products for a healthy lifestyle.Consumer interest in health consciousness is likely to outnumber and outweigh professional athletes. As a result, retailers allocate more shelf space to sports nutrition products. This allows sport supplement manufacturers to market sports nutrition products in an oral dosage format - softgel capsules - to a large and diverse consumer base worldwide.

Furthermore, manufacturers are working hard to develop unique empty softgel capsules that are more versatile and convenient for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and cosmeceutical applications.The pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries are more likely to favor various empty softgel capsules due to their suitability for various formulations such as liquid and solid dosage forms and their ease-of-use features when administering drugs orally or through inhalation routes.Various softgel capsule products with advanced novel capsule features, such as chewcaps, hydrophilic sandwich (HS) capsules, duo caps, etc are entering the market and are seeing significant demand from end-users. This contributes to the growth of the global vegetarian softgel capsules market.

High manufacturing cost of vegetarian softgel capsules is likely to hamper the market growth

However, the high manufacturing cost of vegetarian softgel capsules, owing to their specialized raw materials and production procedures, is likely to restrain market expansion over the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has created havoc on healthcare workflows all around the world. Various industries, including several sub-domains of health care, have been forced to close their doors because of the disease temporarily. The global vegetarian softgel capsules market shrank in 2020 due to the global economic slowdown, which was fueled by COVID-19. Furthermore, the COVID-19 epidemic wreaked havoc on the supply chain in various end-user industries, including food and beverage, healthcare, and industrial. Furthermore, from 2020 to 2021, the market-specific business segment of important companies has experienced a negative influence. For example, DuPont's revenue fell by 5.2 percent from 2019 to 2020, owing to a drop in net sales in the nutrition and bioscience division. In addition, Catalent's softgel and oral technologies division saw a 4.7 percent reduction in net sales from 2020 to 2021. Overall, COVID-19 negatively influenced the vegetarian softgel capsule market due to the limited uptake of vegetarian-based capsules due to logistical chain delays and the easy availability of gelatin-based capsules. However, due to the rise in self-care trends and the benefits of plant-based softgel capsules, vegetarian softgel capsule usage is predicted to skyrocket after 2022-2023.

Segment Analysis

The health supplements segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2029)

The market is divided into three applications: pharmaceuticals, health supplements, and cosmetics. The health supplements segment dominated the global market in 2020 and is expected to maintain this dominance throughout the forecast period. This is due to an increase in the use of vegetarian softgel capsules as health supplements, which contain nutrient compounds such as vitamins, minerals, fiber, fatty acids, and amino acids, which help boost people's immune systems and reduce anxiety and improve their overall health.

Anemia is a serious global public health problem affecting young children and pregnant women. According to the World Health Organization, 42 percent of children under five and 40 percent of pregnant women are anemic worldwide.(Source: World Health Organization).

According to a Rakuten Insight survey on dietary supplements in India conducted in July 2020, approximately 45 percent of respondents aged 35 to 44 stated that they used dietary supplements. Moreover, there are several benefits of health supplements as proper intake of vitamins, minerals, fiber, fatty acids and amino acids helps maintain a healthy body. Due to increasing awareness about healthy lifestyle practices, this segment will boost the forecast period.
