According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Collagen Market is accounted for $4.04 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $5.91 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period. Collagen is the most abundant protein in human body found in the muscles, bones, skin and tendons in the human. It is widely used in medical and cosmetics applications as it helps to repair body tissues. Collagen is the key structural protein in the extracellular matrix in the various connective tissues in the body. Collagen act as crucial protein in human body offering several health benefits such as help in tissue repair.

Market Dynamics:


Growing demand from emerging economies

The adoption of western food habits, changing lifestyles, food habits, an increase in demand for functional ingredients in food products, and an increase in industrial activity leading to the need for process enhancement have contributed to the development of the collagen market in emerging economies. Emerging economies such as the South America, Asia Pacific, South Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern European countries provide excellent opportunities for the growth of the market.


Requirement of advanced technology

The processing of collagen proteins requires highly advanced technology. After extracting the edible collagen from porcine/bovine/fish skins, it is sent for filtration and ion exchange. The filtration process involves microfiltration technology where the fluid can pass through a porous membrane. This is followed by heat sterilization, which requires high-temperature heat treatment, and ultimately, drying of the product through spray drying technology. All the above technologies are not largely developed throughout the regions of the world, especially in developing countries such as India, China, and the Rest of Asia Pacific. Hence, collagen peptides and gelatin production is largely restricted to some countries, such as the US, the UK, and Germany.


Rise in the demand for cosmetic products

Collagen is a common constituent of soaps, shampoos, facial creams, body lotions, and other cosmetics. Collagen is used in the cosmetic industry in creams as a nutritional supplement for bone, cartilage regeneration, vascular and cardiac reconstruction, skin replacement, and augmentation of soft skin, among others. Collagen fibers present in the human skin are damaged with time, losing thickness and strength, which results in skin aging. Hydrolyzed collagen is an important ingredient in skin and hair care products. One important application of hydrolyzed collagen in the personal care sector is combined with surfactants and active washing agents in shower gels and shampoos.


Presence of cultural restrictions

Collagen has varied applications in the pharmaceutical, cosmeceutical, nutraceutical, and food industries. On contrary, they are animal by-products obtained from the slaughtering of animals, including the bones, hides, and hooves of pigs, fish, cattle, and poultry. Individuals with religious or dietary restrictions that forbid the consumption of animal products are not willing to consume these products. For instance, pork and pork-derived products are strictly forbidden in Muslim communities (including those in the Middle East). They instead prefer to consume halal-certified bovine-derived products. Therefore, the market for collagen manufactured by pork skin is negligible in these regions. These cultural and regional outlooks can sometimes pose as a restraint for the growth of the market.

The bovine segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The bovine segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. Bovine based collagen derived from cow, extracted from cartilage, bones, cow hides and connective tissues. High yield and low cost offers biggest advantage in low-valued products such as in Food & Beverages sectors thus supporting the market size. Furthermore, increasing use of BSE free bovine collagen in medical application will create lucrative growth opportunities for global collagen industry. Furthermore, increasing health awareness among people and health benefits of bovine collagen such as help in maintaining health of bones and muscles will drive the product demand as supplement and nutraceuticals.

The gelatin segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The gelatin segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period owing to the increased demand from food and pharmaceutical industries, due to its outstanding stabilizing features and binding characteristics. The growing gelatin usage in photography, nutraceuticals, and cosmeceuticals is also contributing to its large adoption. The nutritional gummies, chewable soft capsules, and enteric capsules are the recent trends in pharma drug deliveries, where gelatin’s mass volume is being used. This segment is also expected to grow at the highest CAGR, mainly due to the rising fish industry in the emerging economies.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the growth of various end-user industries such as healthcare, cosmetics, and food and beverage. Moreover, the market in the region is expected to be positively influenced by the rising preference for healthy drinks among consumers. The demand for collagen in Mexico and Canada is expected to be driven by the ascending demand for gummy confectionery products. The regional market is anticipated to benefit from the presence of a strong healthcare industry coupled with high public expenditure on healthcare, primarily in the U.S.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the presence of a well-established meat processing industry, coupled with high expenditure on industrial development by governing agencies. Socio-economic factors such as increasing populace, urbanization & industrialization, rising per capita income and changing lifestyle will drive the regional market outlook. In addition, high investments in research and development activities to produce collagen-based products are expected to favor market growth.
