Enteric softgel capsules are extended-release capsules used to stabilize the reaction of acid-sensitive medicine in the human stomach during digestion. These capsules are hermetically sealed and contain liquid or semi-solid medicinal drugs enclosed in gelatin-based shell coating. The coating delays the release, improves tolerance and reduces poor aftertastes of the enclosed product. These capsules protect the active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and prevent gastric irritation and reflux. They are commonly used in the form of multivitamin supplements to treat or prevent vitamin and nutrient deficiency due to poor diet, illnesses or during pregnancy. In comparison to the traditionally used capsules, enteric softgel variants offer preserved enzyme activity and enhanced bioavailability, absorption and efficacy.

Enteric Softgel Capsules Market Trends:
Significant growth in the pharmaceutical industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, rising health consciousness among the masses and the increasing acceptance of nutritional and dietary supplements are providing a thrust to the growth of the market. Enteric softgel capsules are widely used to enclose Omega-3 oils and other gel-based supplements. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of non-gelatin-based enteric softgel capsules, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Novel variants are being manufactured using starch and other plant-based sources to meet the requirements of consumers with vegan dietary preferences. In line with this, the rising geriatric population, which is more susceptible to chronic medical ailments and the proliferation of online pharmacies through ecommerce retail channels are also contributing to the market growth. Other factors, including rising healthcare expenditures of the consumers, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities to improve the bioavailability of these capsules, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
