Collagen: Increasing demand from cosmetics industry in emerging countries to drive demand growth

Posted On Dec, 03, 2020

The rapid aging of the population in Asia is a major concern for the governments of the region, most notably in economies such as Japan, India, China, Singapore, and South Korea. Several research studies conducted in recent years project the elderly population of the region to reach nearly 1 billion by 2050. This trend has also resulted in the increased need for enhanced healthcare services and personal care products in the aforementioned countries.

The demand for skin care, anti-aging cosmetics, and personal care products is expected to increase significantly over the coming years, particularly in India, South Korea, China, and Japan. This trend is further expected to drive the demand for collagen, as it is one of the most key ingredients in cosmetic products for anti-aging and skin rejuvenation attributes.

The key sources of the product include bovine, porcine, poultry, and marine, wherein the overall growth of the industry is expected to be driven by the marine segment over the forecast years. This growth can be attributed to the extensive research & development activities being conducted by research organizations and industry players for the development of advanced cosmetics, medical, and pharmaceutical products to cater to the demand from the geriatric population worldwide.
