Global gelatin market will reach 799.5 thousand tons by 2026
Gelatin is a natural ingredient that is fat-free, calorie-free and high in protein, presenting an attractive option for health products. Gelatin is a natural protein derived from the fractional hydrolysis of collagen, a substance found in the skin and bones of animals. The most common types of gelatin are obtained from bovine bone, bovine skin, and pig skin. The growth of the global market is being driven by the confluence of several factors including the increasing demand for ready-to-eat and functional foods, increased health awareness, expansion of end-use industries, and growth in Emerging Markets. Demand for the product is also driven by the essential requirement of gelatin in food, pharmaceutical and nutritional solutions due to its distinctive behavioral properties. Other factors driving the expansion of the market include growing health awareness, high demand for supplements, advancements in capsule technology, and increasing use of pharmaceutical drugs. As rising healthcare spending and growing demand for end-use applications are expected to favor the gelatin and collagen peptides segment, increasing disposable income in urban areas and growing rural population in emerging economies, including India, China, Brazil and South Africa are likely to benefit gelatin and its derivatives. As a safe natural product, gelatin is also being targeted by researchers for new applications such as tissue engineering and wound care products which are likely to further expand the overall scope of the material.

In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, the global gelatin market estimated at 504.8 thousand metric tons in 2020, is expected to reach a revised size of 799.5 thousand metric tons by 2026, with a CAGR of 7, 9% over the analysis period. Pig skin, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% to reach 327.4 thousand metric tons by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and the induced economic crisis, the growth of the bovine hides segment is readjusted to a revised CAGR of 6.7% for the next 7 year period. This segment currently represents a 30.6% share of the global gelatin market. When it comes to raw materials, pig skin is the main raw material used for making gelatin, due to its high collagen content. The product derived from pigskin is generally used as a thickener, stabilizer, texturizer, binder and in capsules. The growing demand from the food industry for nutritional and sports products is driving the growth of the porcine gelatin segment. Bovine skin products, due to their considerable protein content and easy absorption from water, are expected to experience increased use in the coming years.

The US market is estimated at 117.5 thousand metric tons in 2021, while China is expected to reach $ 115.5 thousand Metric tons by 2026
The gelatin market in the United States is estimated at 117.5 thousand metric tons in 2021. The country currently accounts for a 21.75% share of the global market. China, the world’s second-largest economy, is expected to reach an estimated market size of 115.5 thousand metric tons in 2026, with a CAGR of 9.8% during the analysis period. Other notable geographic markets include Japan and Canada, each projects growth of 6.9% and 7.2% respectively over the period of analysis. In Europe, Germany is expected to grow by around 7.4% CAGR while the rest of the European market (as defined in the study) will reach 122 thousand metric tonnes by the end of the analysis period. Europe dominates the market share due to the increase in consumption of sports drinks containing gelatin. Growing concern about increasing levels of obesity and the subsequent growth in weight management efforts is also a major factor driving the demand for gelatin in the region. The United States is also an important market, due to the increasing use of gelatin in the application areas of nutraceuticals, cosmetics and photography. Growing health concerns and increasing customer awareness, in addition to increasing applications in various industries, are generating gains in the Asia Pacific Marlet.

Bone segment will reach 236.5 thousand metric tons by 2026
Cattle bones contain high protein collagen which is boiled and filtered several times, after which it is turned into powder. Consuming this powder helps improve connective tissue and digestion. The growing demand for halal products in the food and beverage market in Middle Eastern countries is expected to encourage the use of bovine bones for gelatin production in the coming years. In the global bone segment, United States, Canada, Japan, China and Europe will lead to the estimated 8.8% CAGR for this segment. These regional markets representing a combined market size of 112.7 thousand metric tonnes in 2020 will reach a projected size of 201.8 thousand metric tonnes by the end of the analysis period. China will remain among the most dynamic of this group of regional markets.
