Increasing Demand for Healthy Food to Boost Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market

Collagen peptides are highly bioactive, cold-soluble, and easily digestible sources of collagen. Gelatin and collagen peptides are not exactly the same, but the both are originated from collagen. These products are proteins made from amino acids and are used for improving the organoleptic properties of various food products. Transparency Market Research (TMR) has estimated that the global market valued at US$4.52 bn in 2016, which is expected to reach US$11.15 bn by the end of 2025. It is projected that the market will expand with a healthy CAGR of 9.4% over the forecast period of 2016-2025.

The impressive growth exhibited by the global collagen peptide and gelatin market can be credited to the increasing awareness about health benefits of consuming collagen peptide and gelatin among consumers. Various non-government organizations and mass media institutes are promoting numerous products that contains collagen peptide and gelatin. Furthermore, prominent players operating in this market are continuously trying to develop technologically advanced process to produce healthier products. For instance, in 2016, Gelita, a  leading global supplier of collagen proteins developed GELITA SMART TECHNOLOGY that provide enhanced physiological functionalities and technological functionalities, which leads to improve wettability and higher bulk densities, fewer clumping issues during dissolution, produces less dust during handling, and increases process performance.

Q. Which properties make Collagen Peptide different from Gelatin?

Gelatin is a brittle, flavorless, translucent, and colorless food additive produced from collagen found in various body part of animals. They find their major application as a gelling agent in production of cosmetics, vitamin capsules, photography, food, and pharmaceutical drugs. It is one of the most popular additives used in various dairy products such as yogurts and cream desserts. On the other hand, collagen peptides are the bioactive peptides produced from collagen with the process of enzymatic hydrolysis. There are used to enhance the organoleptic properties of various pharmaceutical products, meat and fish products, beverages, confectionery, and dairy products.

Q. What are the factors leading to the growth of type I collagen segment?

On the basis of type, the global market for collagen peptide and gelatin can be segmented into type I, type II, and others. Among these segments, type I held the major share, contributing about 77.4% to the overall market in 2015. The increasing applications of type I collagen in personal care and grooming products and the inclination of consumers towards healthy lifestyle are most likely to help the segment sustain its dominating position over the forecast period. Furthermore, the usage of type I collagen as a key ingredient in anti-aging aging products is expected to propel the segment and assist it to grow with the highest CAGR among the type segments. High occurrence of diseases related to teeth, bones, and skin is driving the segment and further expanding the overall market for collagen peptide and gelatin.    

Q. Which geographical region is expected to provide most lucrative opportunities for the market growth?

Regionally segmented into the Middle East & Africa, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America, North America emerged as a dominating segment in 2016. North America and Europe collectively accounted to 60% of the global market in 2016. The increasing investment from the key players, government support, rapid adoption of advanced technology, and increasing diseases prevalence are few of the factors resulting to the growth of the market in Europe and North America. However, the Asia Pacific is more likely to exhibit a higher CAGR over the forecast period of 2016-2025 owing to the increasing population and the existence of unmet medical needs. Furthermore, the initiatives taken by various governments to develop the healthcare infrastructure are projected to provide impetus to the market growth.
