What is Vegetable (HPMC) Capsule? How big is the Vegetable (HPMC) Capsule Industry?

Vegetable (HPMC) Capsule Report Coverage & Overview:

Vegetable capsules, composed of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), consist of plant-derived elements. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), also known as Hypromellose, is derived from wood pulp and is primarily composed of cellulose units that have been partially methylated and hydroxypropylated. HPMC serves as a tasteless, clear, and vegan-friendly material, aligning with vegetarian and vegan preferences. These capsules are crafted without the use of animal products and are free from genetic modification, boasting effective oxygen barrier characteristics.

The durability of HPMC capsules remains intact, even under harsh storage conditions, as they demonstrate resistance to cross-linking. This sets them apart from conventional gelatin-based capsules, which often face challenges when interacting with various molecules during formulation. To combat these issues, particularly concerning active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and excipients that do not align well with gelatin, the development and widespread adoption of HPMC capsules have taken place.

Furthermore, HPMC capsules offer a solution to the moisture sensitivity and hygroscopic nature commonly associated with gelatin-based capsules. These capsules meet all the existing criteria set forth by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and the food chemical codex (FCC). They find utility in accommodating both fast-release and delayed-release (targeted) drugs. Manufacturers and researchers worldwide are deeply involved in advancing the application of HPMC for capsules, aiming to enhance the performance of formulations in diverse scenarios.

Global Vegetable (HPMC) Capsule Market: Growth Dynamics

Projected Market Growth Driven by Escalating Demand and Advancements in Plant-Based Capsules

Anticipated expansion within the global vegetable (HPMC) capsule market stems from the burgeoning demand and ongoing developments in the realm of plant-based capsules, catering to applications in both pharmaceuticals and health supplements. Derived from plant or wood sources, HPMC capsules serve as a secure option for human consumption, offering a noteworthy alternative to gelatin capsules. These capsules find favor as a substitute for individuals abstaining from animal products, including vegetarians and vegans. They align seamlessly with kosher and halal requirements, appealing to consumers adhering to strict religious dietary practices. Beyond this, HPMC capsules effectively mask unpleasant flavors and odors of internal active ingredients, facilitating ease of consumption. Furthermore, these capsules boast exceptional moisture resistance and deter bacterial growth on their surfaces.

Numerous manufacturing entities are enhancing their product portfolios through the incorporation of vegetable HPMC capsules. In a notable instance, Evonik Industries AG introduced enteric-protected ready-to-fill capsules, EUDRACAP, of IPEC-GMP quality in July 2022. These coated hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) capsules prove invaluable in safeguarding delicate active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) against moisture and gastric acid. EUDRACAP, an HPMC-based capsule, harmoniously integrates with fully automated capsule-filling machinery at high operational speeds.

Another significant development unfolded in November 2021, as ACG announced its collaboration with the Maharashtra state government to establish a vegetable HPMC capsule plant in Maharashtra, India. This ambitious endeavor, requiring an investment of approximately INR 800 crore, aims to supplant gelatin capsules.

Surging demand across the global pharmaceutical sector drives the consumption of vegetable HPMC capsules for an array of prescribed and over-the-counter (OTC) medications. For instance, data from the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) underscored the global pharmaceutical (prescription) industry's ex-factory value at EUR 1,222,921 million (equivalent to around USD 1,287,736 million) in 2022. Notably, pharmaceutical production in Europe accounted for about EUR 340,000 million in the same year, marking a growth rate of roughly 4.95% compared to the prior year. Europe's share in the global pharmaceutical (prescription) industry constituted approximately 22.4%.

Vegetable (HPMC) Capsule Market: Segmentation Analysis

The global vegetable (HPMC) capsule market is segmented based on type, application, and region.

Based on type, There are two distinct subsets of the global market for HPMC: those that contain gelling agents and those that do not. Because of their resistance to acid, products containing HPMC combined with gelling agents currently have a dominant position on markets around the world. In order to make HPMC capsules, the cold pin moulds are dipped into a hot solution of HPMC, which is then allowed to gel at a low temperature before being allowed to dry. In contrast to HPMC, gelatin will begin to solidify on its own at lower temperatures, making it an ideal candidate for this production technique. In order to successfully manufacture HPMC capsules, producers require the use of gelling agents throughout this procedure. Gellan gum, carrageenan, pectin, and a few additional ingredients are among the most important gelling agents that are utilised. However, many companies, like ACG and Lonza, are transitioning to a process of making HPMC capsules, which does not require the use of any gelling agent. This process may be found on the current market.

Based on application, The market for vegetable (HPMC) capsules is divided into the pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals subindustries, as well as other applications. In 2022, the pharmaceuticals sector held the lion's share of the total market share. Because vegetable HPMC capsules have a naturally low moisture content, it is possible to encapsulate medicinal substances that are hygroscopic and sensitive to moisture. This makes the process more cost-effective. At this time, numerous large pharmaceutical medicine makers all around the world are making extensive use of the HPMC capsules that they produce. T

hese capsules may include components in a wide variety of textures and consistencies, including powders, pellets, liquids, and semisolids. For the delivery of medications with foul and offensive tastes and odours, HPMC capsules are frequently utilised.The global Vegetable (HPMC) Capsule market is segmented as follows:
