Collagen peptides are easily digestible, cold-soluble, and highly bioactive sources of collagen. Although collagen peptides are not precisely the same as gelatin, both gelatin and collagen peptide originate from collagen and are proteins made from amino acids. Collagen peptides are the bioactive peptides derived from the enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen. These peptides are derived by breaking down molecular bonds between individual collagen strands to peptides. Collagen peptides find application in the dairy, confectionery, beverages, meat & fish products, and other pharmaceutical and food products and are used to improve the organoleptic properties. Gelatin is a colorless, translucent, flavorless, and brittle food additive derived from collagen present in several animal body parts. Gelatin is generally used as a gelling agent in pharmaceutical drugs, food, photography, vitamin capsules, and production of cosmetics. It is an irreversibly hydrolyzed form of collagen wherein the hydrolysis leads to the reduction of protein fibrils into smaller peptides, which have broad range of molecular weight related with chemical and physical methods of denaturation usually based on the process of hydrolysis involved. Moreover, gelatin is also one of the most commonly used food additives especially in the confectionary industry and several dairy products such as cream desserts, yogurts and a wide range of low fat dairy products and is used to enhance the stability and texture of the product.
The global collagen peptide and gelatin market is witnessing bright opportunities owing to increase in concerns regarding wellness and health among the global population. Moreover, rise in demand for dietary supplements as well as increase in use of collagen in the food & beverage industry, inclination of consumers toward healthy and protein rich diet as well as increase in applications of collagen peptide and gelatin in nutri cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare drive the growth of the global collagen peptide and gelatin market. In addition, increase in growth of the global food processing industry as well as growth in instances of general lifestyle diseases has driven a paradigm shift in consumers who now prefer nutraceuticals and functional foods since these categories of food are helpful in averting age-related diseases. Also, usage of collagen in wound healing is one of the key trends pertaining in the market on account of increasing obese and geriatric population across the globe. The Asia-Pacific collagen peptide and gelatin market is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period owing to availability of skilled labor and cheap raw materials coupled with surging pharmaceutical industry in the region. Furthermore, increase in awareness regarding nutritional benefits of dietary supplements is anticipated to fuel the demand for collagen peptide across the globe. However, several aspects such as concerns related to safety, increase in use of alternatives such as modified starch gels, pectin gels, carrageenan and high acyl gellan gum as well as religious constraints is projected to hamper the growth of the global collagen peptide and gelatin market during the forecast period. Although increase in investments in R&D activities to synthesize plant-based gelatin and collagen as well as growth in number of manufacturers are expected to pose lucrative opportunities in the upcoming years.
