Global Gelatin Market Historical Analysis (2015-2021) Vs. Forecast Outlook (2022-2032)

As per the previous gelatin market demand analysis report, covering the years 2015 to 2021, the overall growth of the global market was recorded to be 6.3%. The marginal decrease in the year-on-year growth rate predicted by this new market research report on gelatin for the time to come is recognized to be resulting from the negative implications of the economic slowdown following the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the aftermath of Covid-19, most industries related to non-essential items are struggling to recover and revive their pre-pandemic era market presence. In such a scenario, the rejuvenation of the business by gelatin market players is commendable. With the gradual easing of pandemic restrictions, the gelatin market statistics have recovered swiftly and are projected to accelerate with the passage of time.

What is the Future of Global Gelatin Market?

“Over the projection period, the market demand for gelatin is expected to be driven by rising demand for convenience and functional beverages and food items, as well as its increased use in pharmaceutical products.”

Demand for gelatin as thickeners are predicted to rise during the projected years as a result of rising population and per capita income levels in countries such as India and China and other areas as well. Thickeners' use in cosmetics and personal care products is also expected to drive the global gelatin market expansion in the future years.

In the present market, demand for gelatin is higher than that made from a variety of basic

ingredients, including chicken, fish, horse skins, and pectin. However, alternative sources of gelatin were established pertaining to the socio-cultural and health risks connected with all-natural beef gelatin. However, horses, fish, and poultry are observed to have lower protein content, which is predicted to limit their progress as a feedstock for gelatin synthesis to some extent.

Interestingly, in recent years, fish gelatin has gained ample traction owing to its extensive use in non-edible applications. For instance, in immune-detection processes, such as that one in western blotting and immunostaining, fish gelatin is most commonly employed as a blocking solution for eliminating background noise. Proliferation in the use of gelatin for such industrial purposes is also poised to expand the gelatin market key trends and opportunities in the future days ahead.

The gelatin market trends are predicted to rise as demand for gelatin-based biomedical products to improve hair texture and quality grows in the cosmetic business. The usage of gelatin in personal care products to further augment the gelatin market future trends during the forecast period with the growing consumer demand for haircare treatment products.

What are the Several Constraints Experienced for the Gelatin Market Growth?

As it is a general practice to govern the food sector by strict standards, particularly those using animal-based raw materials and components in product creation, so the gelatin market trends are highly regulated in the regional markets. European and North American countries are heavily involved in the development of such rules. For example, in European countries, gelatin market players must adhere to the norms and regulations outlined in REGULATION 2016/355 of the EU.

Adhering to specified residual limits and undergoing specialized procedures for eliminating any incidence of illness of consumers as per the guidelines might impact the gelatin market growth to some degree. Such requirements may make the process of sourcing raw materials somewhat more complicated, which might also slow down the emerging trends in gelatin market in the upcoming days.

Furthermore, throughout the projected period, a lack of expertise and value production for the manufacturing of gelatin out from stated raw materials is likely to limit market expansion.

In addition to this, continuously rising production prices along with skyrocketing utility costs are likely to decrease its applicability in the personal care sector and are also expected to be putting a damper on gelatin market opportunities in the near future.

Region-wise Outlook

What is the Gelatin Market Outlook for the North America Region?

The United States is estimated by this new market research report on gelatin to be the leading market in the world, accounting for over 40% of worldwide sales by 2022.

Consumption of gelatin-based items such as cosmetics, food, rejuvenation drinks, and medicinal products drives regional demand for gelatin. Over the projected period following it, the usage of top-grade collagen in the creation of skeletal and muscle tissue restoration patches is likely to fuel US gelatin market expansion.

In addition, throughout the projected period, increased demand for gelatin in the manufacturing of meat casings is predicted to propel market expansion. All these factors are expected to further boost the US gelatin market by taking it to a total valuation of nearly US$ 2.1 Billion by the end of this forecasted period in 2032.

The growing trend of convenience packaged foods in Canada and Mexico, as a result of changing lifestyles and habits, is likely to drive up gelatin consumption in North America through confectionary products, desserts, and drinks.

Mexico is also likely to be an important manufacturing location in the food and beverage, personal care, and pharmaceutical industries and is anticipated to be contributing significantly to the global gelatin market growth in the North American region.

What is the Gelatin Market Outlook for the Asia Pacific Region?

With the rising desire for healthy, creative, quick, and convenient food from the burgeoning population in the Asia Pacific region, the regional gelatin market is predicted to be the fastest expanding market. China being the leading market in the region with respect to the total volume of gelatin produced and exported, is estimated to be worth approximately US$ 300 Million in the current year 2022.

Japan and South Korea are also the other two leading gelatin markets in the Asia Pacific region, with a total valuation of US$ 200 Million and US$ 100 Million, respectively. As per the recent developments in the gelatin market, as mentioned in this report, China is the fastest-growing country in the Asia Pacific region and second in the world order, with a CAGR of 5.2%.

What is the Growth Outlook for the Gelatin Market According to Different Segments?

“Rising global concern over the ill effects of artificial ingredients is anticipated to help the organic gelatin segment to take over the conventional gelatin market soon.”

Type A gelatin is made from porcine gelatin after it has been acidified by suitable chemicals. On the other hand, type B gelatin is often obtained from bovine gelatin after the process of alkalization. In the local markets, these gelatine powders are commonly referred to as edible gelatin because these are most widely used in food preparation.

On the Basis of Source Which Segment is the Top Performing Segment for the Global Gelatin Market?

Porcine, bones, and skin of bovine animals or tendons from cattle and pigs are commonly utilized as raw materials for gelatin manufacture. Porcine is traditionally the largest used base material segment contributing almost 50% of the total output of the global gelatin market. This segment also is anticipated to expand faster than any other by a year-on-year growth rate of 5.7% during the forecast years spanning over 2022 to 2032.

Due to the prevalence of the pork industry, gelatin derived from pig skin is available at a lower cost and contributes more than other sources to higher sales of gelatin in terms of volume. On the other hand, gelatin made from fish's cold skin does not react with mammalian antibodies and is more often used in medicinal applications.

What are the Major Applications of the Gelatin by Different Market Segments?

In a variety of food, cosmetics, personal care, and pharmaceutical applications, gelatin can be added as a thickening or gelling agent and also as a stabilizer. By 2022, the global demand for gelatin as a stabilizer is expected to reach 30 Metric Tonnes in terms of volume. Rising consumption of street food items such as pastas, salads, yogurt, ice creams, jams, and jellies is to blame for such exponential growth of the gelatin market opportunities in the food and beverages sector.

Food and beverage, care products, and pharmaceuticals mostly prefer to use organic gelatin. It is a key ingredient in the production of nutritional supplements, edible coatings, and soft drinks resulting in the highest sales of gelatin in the food and beverage industry. As obvious, the food category is the top-performing segment of the global gelatin market and is expected to grow at a rate of 5.8% during the projected period.
