The global collagen industry has been segmented on the basis of source, product, application, and region. The source segment covers bovine, porcine, poultry, and marine.

Among these sources, bovine is the most commonly used source for extraction and synthesis of collagen-based products. The future growth of the overall industry is expected to be driven by the marine segment, as a result of increased R&D investments and activities by key manufacturers to develop advanced extraction and synthesis techniques for fish collagen.

Another key driver for the industry is the increasing demand for cosmetic products to cater to the requirements of the geriatric as well as youth population, wherein the focus has been aligned with skin rejuvenation and personal care.

The key challenges faced by the industry include the growing concerns among consumers regarding transfer of diseases from the products sourced from animals. In addition, cultural and social concerns also play significant roles in restricting the growth of the overall industry, most notably in emerging regions such as Asia Pacific.

Source Insights

The key sources covered in this research study are bovine, porcine, poultry, and marine, among others. In 2016, the bovine segment dominated the overall industry, accounting for revenues of over USD 1,200 million, globally. This segment is also expected to witness significant growth over the coming years, mainly owing to the possibility of high volume extraction and the growing demand for advanced skin care and pharmaceutical products.

Porcine source category is the second most commonly used source for the extraction of collagen and related products and is expected to witness substantial growth on account of easy availability and growing applications of porcine collagen in skin-care and personal care industries.

The marine segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast years, at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period. This growth is driven mainly by the increasing R&D activities and investments for the development of advanced extraction techniques as well as easy availability of raw materials.

Product Insights

Gelatin and hydrolyzed collagen are the key product segments considered in this research study. Globally, the gelatin segment accounted for the highest share of the overall industry in 2016, owing to the vast application scope in key application industries such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.

Application Insights

The industry has been categorized into food & beverages, healthcare, and cosmetics, among others. The global industry is dominated by the healthcare segment as of 2016, which accounted for revenues of nearly USD 1,800 million in 2016, primarily driven by the growing geriatric population across the globe.

The cosmetics application segment was estimated at over 200 million in 2016 and is expected to witness substantial growth. The increasing importance of skin-rejuvenation, cell repair and anti-aging among the geriatric population is expected to drive the market demand for collagen based cosmetic and skin-care products.

China accounts for the largest market for collagen in terms of volume and revenue in Asia. China’s rapid urbanization and strong economic growth has led to changing lifestyles and increasing disposable income, as a result of which there is a shift in consumer expenditure on lifestyle products such as skin-care, packaged foods, sports nutrition and others

The industry in Europe is currently witnessing average growth, mainly as a result of political instabilities and slow economy recovery in major parts of the region. Moreover, the presence of low cost products from Chinese manufacturers in the international market is also affecting the growth and success of manufacturers in this region.

Competitive Insights

The key participants in the global industry include Nitta-Gelatin, CONNOILS, Pan—Biotech GmbH, JBS-Brasil, and Advanced BioMatrix, among others. The global collagen market faces intense competition due to the presence highly integrated players with large number of raw materials suppliers.
