Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market Overview
Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market size is estimated to reach $5.8 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Gelatin is a protein made up of animal collagen mostly from cows and pigs. Collagen is made up of amino acids which consist of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, and is mostly found in connective tissue, skin, tendon, bone, and cartilage. Collagen peptide is easy to digest highly bioactive source of collagen. Collagen peptide is used in dairy, confectionery, food and beverages, meat, and seafood products, and is widely employed in the pharmaceuticals industry. Gelatin is a colorless, transparent, flavorless, and brittle food ingredient made from collagen, which can be found in a variety of animal body parts. Pharmaceutical medications, food, photography, vitamin capsules, and cosmetic manufacturers all employ it as a gelling agent. Gelatin is also one of the most commonly used food additives, especially in the confectionery industry and in a number of dairy goods, such as cream desserts, yogurts, and a wide range of low-fat dairy products, where it is used to improve product stability and texture. Cosmetics, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and nutraceuticals industries all use peptides and gelatine. Consumption of collagen or peptides improves the collagen level of the body and helps in reducing bone problems such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and others, improving bone density, and enhancing gut health. With an increase in age, loss in integrity of collagen bond occurs which invites aging signs and bone problems.
The expanding population of the elderly mainly demands collagen peptides and gelatin which is set to drive the Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market. The increase in alcohol consumption resulting in collagen deficiency in the body, which can be boosted by peptide and gelatin-based nutraceuticals is set to propel the growth of the Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market during the forecast period 2022-2027. This represents the Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Industry Outlook.

Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market Segment Analysis - By Source
The Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market based on the source can be further segmented into Bovine, Sheep, Porcine, Chicken, Marine, and Others. The Bovine Segment held the largest market share in 2021. This growth is owing to the wide application of bovine-based peptides and collagen in various industries such as food and beverages, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. The global gelatin by volume reached 447,300 Tonnes in 2021 and is anticipated to reach 496,470 tonnes in 2027. As per the latest forecast by the Economic Research Service of the U.S Department of Agriculture, total red meat and poultry production will rise to 106.25 million pounds, and per capita consumption is 222.4 pounds in 2022. This kind of increasing production and consumption is further propelling the growth of the Bovine segment. Furthermore, the Porcine segment is estimated to grow with the fastest CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period 2022-2027 owing to the increasing preference for porcine-based nutritional products in the market and new innovative products launched by key market players.
Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market Segment Analysis - By Application
The Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market based on the application can be further segmented into Food And Beverages, Pharmaceuticals, Cosmetics, Nutraceuticals, and Others. The Food And Beverages Segment held the largest market share in 2021. This growth is owing to the increase in demand for various bovine and porcine collagen peptides and gelatin for application in the food and beverages industry. The rising demand for healthy food and functional beverages as well as various R&D activities and new product launches by key market players are further propelling the growth of this segment.
Furthermore, the Pharmaceuticals segment is estimated to grow with the fastest CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period 2022-2027 owing to the wide application of collagen peptides in the pharmaceuticals industry, being employed as collagen shield in ophthalmology, sponges for burns or wounds, for protein and drug delivery, as controlling material for transdermal delivery, and nanoparticles for gene delivery and basic matrices for cell structure system.
Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market Segment Analysis - By Geography:
The Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market based on geography can be further segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America and Rest of the World. North America (Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market) held the largest share with 35% of the overall market in 2021. The growth of this region is owing to the increasing consumer awareness and the expanding population of the elderly in America. As per a CDC (Centers For Disease Control And Prevention) report, by 2040, about 78 million (26%) of the U.S population would have doctor-diagnosed arthritis and from a previous study, it is found that people aged 65 or above would have the highest chances of about 49.6% of doctor-diagnosed arthritis. Consumption of peptides and gelatin helps to reduce the severity of these diseases which is further propelling the growth of the Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market in the North American region.
Furthermore, the Asia-Pacific region is estimated to be the region with the fastest CAGR rate over the forecast period 2022-2027. This growth is owing to factors like the increasing demand for nutritious food by a large population. The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) warned 20 countries about acute food insecurity from February to May 2022. In Afghanistan, a total of 8.7 million people were affected by acute food insecurity in March 2022. The increasing demand for nutritious food is therefore driving the growth of the Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market in the Asia-Pacific region.
Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market Drivers
Increase In Consumption Of Healthy Diet Is Driving The Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market
Consumers mostly prefer to consume healthy nutritious food. Collagen is mostly used in the food and beverages industry. Collagen has been applied as protein dietary supplements, carriers in the meat processing, edible film and coatings of products, and food additive to improve product quality. Also, gelatin is a common ingredient in soups, broths, sauces, gummy candies, and marshmallows. The increasing demand for fat-free, gluten-free bakery products as a result of the rise in celiac disease creates opportunities for the collagen peptide and gelatin market. According to National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) research, the number of cases of Classical, Non-classical, and Sub-clinical celiac disease in the U.S. in 2020 was 189,464, 364,893, and 147,361 respectively. As per Harvard Th. Chan School Of Public Health, a gluten-free diet is a singular treatment for 1-2% of Americans enduring celiac disease. The increase in consumption of a healthy diet is therefore driving the Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market during the forecast period 2022-2027.

Also, the incidence of rare genetic diseases is increasing over the past few years as a result of changes in lifestyle, changing climatic conditions, and other such factors. As per National Human Genome Research Institute, about 350 million people around the world live with rare genetic diseases, and only 200,000 of them get diagnosed. The increasing elderly population and rising predominance of genetic diseases are therefore propelling the growth of the Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market during the forecast period 2022-2027.
Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market Challenges
Risk Of Disease Transmission from Bovine and Porcine Collagen And Influence of Religious And Cultural Beliefs Hampers Market Growth
A case of classical bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) was verified in Somerset, England, in September 2021 by the Chief Veterinary Officer and the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA). BSE is a disease that affects cows' nervous systems. Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) is a type of BSE that affects people. In 2019, 232 people worldwide are known to have become sick with vCJD, and unfortunately, they all have died. It is thought that they got the disease by eating food made from cows sick with BSE. Also, Cow and Pig come under the religious view of Hindus and Muslims. Islam is the second-largest followed religion in the world followed by Hinduism. Owing to the increasing number of followers of these two religions and their beliefs, there can be an adverse impact on the progress of the Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market. These issues are restraining the growth of the Collagen Peptide and Gelatin Market.
