Market Report Description

The Europe Vegetarian Softgel Capsules Market would witness market growth of 3.8% CAGR during the forecast period (2021-2027).

Vegetarian capsules have the advantage of not containing animal byproducts, making them acceptable for people who choose not to consume items derived from animals. Vegetable capsules dissolve faster than other types of capsules on the market, allowing their contents to be digested by the body at a faster rate. Moreover, when stored for longer periods of time, these vegetable capsules are more stable and have a high tolerance for heat and humidity.

Vegetable cellulose, a significant component of plant cell walls and fibers, is used to make the majority of vegetarian softgel capsules. Several other forms of cellulose, such as Hypromellose, can be utilized to manufacture these capsules. The most important thing to know about this chemical is that it comes from softwood trees (think pine and fir) and may act as a strong binding and coating agent, making it a suitable substitute for animal gelatin.

According to a YouGov survey of 2021 in the UK, 8% of respondents stated they eat a plant-based diet, and more than a third want to go vegan. Moreover, according to a larger poll conducted by The Vegan Society, the number of vegans in the UK doubled between 2014 and 2018; in 2018, there were approximately 600,000 vegans in the UK, or 1.16 percent of the total population. In addition, 31% of people are eating less meat for health or ethical reasons, and 19% are consuming fewer dairy products.

Such trends indicate that participation in the vegetarian and vegan diet has increased and will continue to increase in the upcoming years. Moreover, many people are intolerant to gelatin-based products, thereby increasing the demand for softgel capsules in the vegetarian format.
