The global collagen sausage casings market was valued at $1.4 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $2.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2022 to 2031.

Collagen sausage casings are a type of artificial sausage casing made from collagen, a protein found in animal connective tissue. These casings are widely used in the meat processing industry due to their advantages over natural casings, such as consistency, uniformity, and ease of use. Collagen sausage casings come in different sizes and shapes, and can be used for a variety of sausages, including fresh, smoked, and cooked. 

The COVID-19 had a negative impact on the collagen sausage casings industry owing to its adverse impact on meat production and supply chain coupled with closure of hotels, restaurants, and cafes. The meat packaging facilities started to shut down in April 2020 due to the surge in the COVID-19 cases among the laborers. Following the lockdown restrictions, both the meat processors and the meat producers faced difficulty in shipment and meat harvesting. Restrictions on the movement of animals within and across the country were imposed that badly hampered the export and import of meat. The meat processing units faced shortages of labor and disrupted supply chain. Therefore the outbreak of the COVID-19 disease adversely affected the meat industry, including meat producers, meat processors, and the distribution channel.

Collagen Sausage Casings Market

Emerging markets such as Asia-Pacific and LAMEA are characterized by rapid urbanization, rising disposable income, growing population, and growing demand for ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat food products. Popular retail chains include supermarkets/hypermarkets, online retailers, online food delivery platforms, and convenience stores. These popular types of retailers have a higher penetration in urban cities. Therefore, developing markets such as Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, India, China, and Indonesia seem to offer great growth opportunities to these popular distribution channels. Moreover, supermarkets/hypermarkets hold the highest share of the global collagen sausage casings market. Therefore, the emerging markets of Asia-Pacific and LAMEA regions are expected to positively contribute to the growth of the collagen sausage casings industry during the forecast period.

The surge in the vegan population is expected to restrain the market from growing since veganism has emerged as a trend with increasing awareness of animal cruelty. For instance, according to a survey commissioned by the Vegan Society, the number of vegans in the UK quadrupled between 2014 and 2018. In 2019, there were 6,00,000 vegans, around 1.16% of the population. Veganism was first coined in the UK. Such an increase in the vegan population has led to a rise in the demand for plant-based seafood. As per the survey commissioned by the government of the UK, Britain’s vegans are pretty new to the lifestyle, with 63% having started out only in the last five years. That being said, the overwhelming majority of Britain’s vegans (81%) graduated from vegetarianism, so many have been avoiding meat for much longer than this. More people are expected to abstain from the consumption of meat products owing to such rising veganism which can hamper the collagen sausage casings market growth.

The growing preference for organic meat across the globe is expected to be the upcoming trend in the market. Growing health consciousness and awareness regarding healthy food habits among the global population is encouraging consumers to opt for organic food products. Organic labeled food ensures that the food is chemical-free. By organic meat, it is meant that no growth promoters, drugs, or any other additives is fed to the livestock. Animal feed must be grown as per the organic standards. No use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers to be used on the feed crops or grasses that are grown to feed the livestock animals. These standards ensure the production of organic meat. Moreover, the demand for organic meat is growing in developed markets like Europe and North America due to higher consumer awareness, higher adoption of healthy food habits, and increased health consciousness among the population. Hence, the use of organic meat in the production of processed meat is expected to gain traction in developed markets which is expected to boost the collagen sausage casings market demand during the forecast period since casings are widely used in the meat processing industry. Furthermore, the carcinogenic nature of processed meat may hamper the growth of the collagen sausage casings market size since there is certain chemical such as haem present in red meat. Haem is further responsible for creating N-nitroso chemicals that are proven to damage the cells that line the bowel, causing bowel cancer. Therefore, consumption of more than 700 grams of processed meat in a week increases the risk of cancer. Rising consumer awareness, growing health consciousness, and growing demand for healthy food products are a few factors that may stimulate the health-conscious population to avoid the consumption of processed meat. Therefore, the carcinogenic properties of red meat and processed meat may hamper the growth of the global collagen sausage casings market size during the forecast period.
