Collagen Market, by Source (Porcine, Poultry, Bovine, and Marine), by Product (Native, Hydrolyzed and Gelatin), by Application and Geography - Analysis, Share, Trends, Size, & Forecast From 2014 - 2025
The collagen market is estimated to represent a global market of USD 3.78 billion by 2017 with the growth rate of 6.3%.
Collagen is a structural protein, found in human's muscle, bone, tendons, and skin. Endogenous collagen is primarily synthesized by the human body. Whereas, the exogenous type is the synthetic form, used for the cosmetic and medical purpose. Increasing research and development activities by key players have expanded end-use applications of collagen solutions. Growing number of applications of this product in cell culture, tissue engineering, biomaterials, cosmetic and wellness products and food & beverages industries support market growth significantly. Furthermore, rising concerns regarding health and fitness, changing lifestyles, consumer preference toward high nutrition products, and growing approvals of gelatine in food products are some factors, augmenting the industry growth to great extent. The market is, on another side, highly regulated with regulations related to the procurement and processing of animal-based raw materials used for the extraction of collagen. Key players have to strictly comply with the standards set by regulatory bodies for animal-based raw materials for human consumption. In addition, this animal-based product possesses a potential threat to human health in terms of transfer of zoonotic diseases which will adversely affect the industry growth.
Collagen is extracted from various animal sources including porcine, poultry, bovine, and marine waste. The specific processes that are used for extracting collagen from each source reflect in the types and the functional properties of collagen required for different applications. Considering such parameters, the global collagen industry is broadly categorized into the source, product, and application. In terms of source, the industry is divided into Porcine, Bovine, Marine, and Poultry. The bovine segment accounted for the highest revenue share with over 34% share of the global market in 2017. Bovine is commonly found in cow hides, cartilage, and bones and is the most common source for developing collagen products.
Product segment is segmented as Native, Hydrolyzed and Gelatin. Among which, hydrolyzed product is anticipated to grow with the fastest growth rate due to rising demand for this product in cosmetics formulations. Based on application, the market is divided into cosmetics, healthcare and food and beverages. Healthcare and food & beverages are considered to be the major contributor to the product demand. Applications such as dental, bone reconstruction, cardiology, drug delivery, tissue engineering among others are covered under healthcare category.
Global Collagen Market, by Product, 2017 vs 2025
Regionally, the market is dominated by North America and European regions. Of these, Europe captured the highest share (i.e. 37.23% in 2017) of the global collagen industry. Increasing demand for premium quality collagen for the production of tissue and bone reconstruction patches support the regional growth. In addition, countries such as Germany present a well-established meat processing and slaughter industry, establishing a healthy platform for this industry to grow. However, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to grow with the fastest growth rate of 8.1% during the forecast period. The collagen produced and consumed in Asia Pacific region is majorly sourced from bovine owing to the high levels of beef production. The regional growth is primarily attributed to the growing demand for collagen-based products from the local manufacturers located in China and India.
