The strategic partnership of empty capsule suppliers with gelatin manufacturers:

Gelatine is a primary raw material used in the manufacturing of empty capsules. The cost of procuring gelatin accounts for over 70% of the total cost of empty capsules. This has prompted an increasing number of empty capsule suppliers to enter into strategic partnerships with gelatine manufacturers to optimize cost savings and ensure supply consistency. Involving in strategic partnerships with gelatin manufacturers enables empty capsule suppliers to have better control over the price of empty capsules during fluctuations in raw material prices.

The use of discontinued capsules:

Suppliers across developing nations have started reusing the empty capsules of expired drugs post an efficient cleaning of the capsule. These capsules are called discontinued capsules, and their use allows pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and cosmetic players to increase their margin by over 5%. Hence, an increasing number of players across industries have started using discontinued capsules to optimize their operational cost and reduces lead time concerning drug delivery.

Focus on building in-house capabilities and leasing manufacturing machinery:

One of the major cost components for suppliers includes the cost of manufacturing machinery. This has prompted a number of suppliers to focus on developing in-house capabilities to produce empty capsules or consider leasing the manufacturing machinery from vendors. Such initiatives help in building long-term engagement models with major buyers of empty capsules. Moreover, it also reduces CAPEX involved in sourcing or leasing empty capsule machinery.
