Hydrolyzed Collagen Market by Type (Fish Collagen, Bovine Collagen, Pig Collagen, Others) by Application (Food, Nutraceuticals, Cosmetics, Medical, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2016 - 2028

Collagen is the most widely available protein in the body of any mammal, which is equal to around one-third of the total protein that exists in the whole body. However, the human body cannot directly absorb Collagen, and Collagen refers to the collagen peptide in this industry, so our statistics prioritize collagen peptide. Collagen peptide is a precursor collagen product made from Collagen or gelatin after protease degradation treatment, whose molecular number is about 3000 daltons. Collagen peptide is called collagen hydrolysate, hydrolyzed collagen protein, gelatine, gelatine hydrolysate, and hydrolyzed gelatin.


The Global Hydrolyzed Collagen market is expected to witness a CAGR of 6.77% during the forecast period. The revenue generated by the global Hydrolyzed Collagen market in 2021 was over USD 1.110.36 million and is expected to generate revenue worth USD 1,809.12 million in 2028. Therefore, the incremental growth opportunity offered by the global Hydrolyzed Collagen is estimated to be USD 10.51 billion between 2022 and 2028.

Increasing Application Base

Collagen has a wide range of applications in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and photographic industries. The global collagen market is expected to witness exponential growth in the near future. This growth can be attributed to the increasing population and consumer purchasing capacity, most notably in developing economies such as China, India, and Brazil. Moreover, increasing demand for Collagen in cosmetics is expected to propel the market growth within the forecast period.

The commercial production of Collagen increased attributed to numerous advantages of Collagen in the cosmetic, food, and pharmaceutical industries. Depending upon the degree of mineralization, collagen tissues may be rigid, bone, compliant, or have a gradient from rigid to compliant or cartilage.

The majority of consumers are now looking for natural sources of Collagen so they can reap its benefits. The advantages of Collagen include strengthening hair and nails, reducing the appearance of cellulite, improving mental health, boosting metabolism, healing leaky gut syndrome, improving joint health, and fighting signs of aging like wrinkles. Therefore, the demand for Collagen and its products is increasing rapidly. In addition, increasing the use of Collagen in medical treatments, including bone grafts, tissue regeneration, reconstructive surgical benefits, wound care, as a supplement, veterinary service, etc., is likely to bolster the global market.

Bovine Collagen to Lead the Demand Hydrolyzed Collagen Industry

Fish Collagen, Bovine Collagen, Pig Collagen, and Others are major types of Hydrolyzed Collagen. Bovine Collagen accounted for over 40% share of the total revenue generated by the global Hydrolyzed Collagen market. Increasing benefits for pig collagen, especially in the cosmetic industry, are expected to encourage the growth of the market across the globe. For instance, scinic pig collagen jelly cream is formulated with loads of hydrolyzed Collagen and soluble Collagen for plumping the skin to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, fish collagen has a relatively high price compared to the bovine and pig segment, owing to the high cost of production and enormous applications of Collagen in the cosmetic industry.

Growing Vegan Population to Arrest the Growth of Hydrolyzed Collagen Industry

There is an increasing trend in vegan food, affecting the demand for products containing Collagen derived from pigs, cattle, or fish. The vegan population is increasingly looking for alternatives such as intake of Pumpkin seeds, Green cruciferous veggies, Cashews, Green tea, and Garlic to boost the collagen level in the body naturally.

Increasing Demand for Kosher/Halal Products

Porcine products are forbidden for consumption by people of Islamic and Jewish religions. As a result, demand is expected to rise heavily for bovine/ovine products that are kosher and halal-certified. Marine Collagen will also threaten to steal this growth; however, bovine and ovine producers can use the more cost-effective and higher-yielding extraction processes they can access to. Cost leadership will enable them to compete effectively in the halal/kosher market.

Focus on Research & Development

Nitta Gelatin, BHN Co., NIPPI, Rousselot, Gelita, Tessenderlo Group, Weishardt Group, and Lapi Gelatine are key players operating in the global hydrolyzed collagen market. The future growth of the collagen market is expected to experience high growth within the forecast period. The change can be attributed to increasing R&D investments and activities by key manufacturers to develop advanced extraction and synthesis techniques for Collagen. For instance, Gelita focuses on advancement and scientific research in collagen peptide development. Gelita is the German manufacturer of gelatin and collagen peptide. In addition, GELITA is set to introduce its advanced bioactive collagen peptides.
