Increasing Collagen Inclusion in Cosmetics Will Drive Medical Collagen Market

Collagen is the most abundant protein (a molecule, it is a tough, insoluble, fibrous protein) in the human body, found in the bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. Collagen forms a scaffold that provides strength and structure within the body. It is an essential component of connective tissue and plays a crucial role in holding the body’s cells together. It also gives strength and elasticity to the skin. Medical uses of collagen include dressings to promote wound healing. Many people use products that contain or boost the production of collagen in the body to improve their skin. Medical and cosmetic uses are as skin fillers, wound dressing, guided tissue regeneration, treatment of osteoarthritis, skin revitalisation. Increasing end-use applications, such as increased utilisation in the food and beverage industries and increased demand from the cosmetics industry, are expected to drive medical collagen market expansion. The sector is likely to profit from consumer adoption of collagen-based products.

The medical collagen market will largely benefit from expanding end-use applications, changing customer preferences and lifestyles, rising disposable income, and increased health and personal care awareness. Collagen fibers in human skin deteriorate with time, losing thickness and strength, resulting in skin ageing. Collagen is used in cosmetic creams as a nutritional supplement for bone regeneration, cartilage regeneration, vascular and heart reconstruction, skin replacement, and soft skin enlargement. Collagen product marketing says that it can improve skin suppleness, eliminate visible wrinkles, and boost blood flow to the skin. An estimated 80% of American women, or 161 million people, use cosmetics daily in the US. The average woman in the US leaves her house each day having used at least 16 facial care or cosmetics items, and she spends $200,000-$300,000 on skincare and cosmetics in her lifetime (or an estimated $250 per month). The growing use of cosmetic products, especially among women, will boost the medical collagen market in the coming years.

Collagen is also widely used nowadays in shampoos and other hair care products. Collagen works by increasing the amount of this specific protein on the scalp, which strengthens the hair strands and follicles. Shampoo with collagen has been demonstrated to improve the body's hair-building proteins, resulting in longer, thicker hair. Collagen may aid in the reduction of grey hair by promoting the health of the hair follicle. American consumers spent 64.7 US dollars per year on hair care products, which was reduced compared to 2019 due to Covid-19. However, the US hair care product market will reach 102 billion in 2024 from 85.4 billion in 2017. The continual expansion of the hair care industry due to its rapid consumption will propel the demand in the sector.

Gelatin Dominant in Medical Collagen Market with Soaring Popularity of Functional and Convenience Foods

With the increasing demand for the product as a food stabiliser, the gelatin sector will dominate the collagen market throughout the projection period. The expansion of the fishing sector in India, and China has enticed gelatin makers in the Asia Pacific region to employ fish as a raw material for gelatin production. Lifestyle and nutritional changes are also predicted to enhance demand for gelatin in developing economies, leading to its increasing use. Increasing demand for convenience and functional food and beverage items, combined with its expanded use in medicinal applications, is expected to drive segment demand throughout the forecast period. The rise in demand for pharmaceutical applications, as well as the increase in demand for medical and biomedical applications, the surge in demand for clean-label products, the increase in demand for naturally sourced ingredients, the rise in demand in F&B applications around the world, and the rise in demand from various industries such as nutraceuticals, personal care, and photography, are all crucial factors driving the growth of this segment in medical collagen market. The increased usage of gelatin as a potential biodegradable packaging material for food products and the increased demand from emerging economies will generate new prospects for the gelatin sector.

North America will Acquire the Largest Share due to Increased Demand from Cosmetic Sector.

North America will dominate the worldwide collagen market during the forecast period. The rise of several end-use sectors such as healthcare, cosmetics, and food & beverages will likely drive the collagen market in North America. The region's industry will probably benefit from growing consumer preference for healthier drinks. The robust healthcare industry, combined with substantial public expenditure on healthcare, particularly in the United States, is likely to boost the regional market. The rising demand for gummy confectionery goods is predicted to stimulate collagen demand in Mexico, and Canada. The United States leads the North American market for reasons such as an increase in the frequency of joint problems, an increase in the elderly population, an increase in demand for better health care facilities, and the adoption of enhanced products and technologies. In 2019, in the US, there were 30 million women and 24.1 million males over 65. The growing ageing women population will increase the consumption of anti-ageing cream containing collagen, thus driving medical collagen market in the region.

Asia Pacific is likely to expand the quickest throughout the forecast period. This region's rapid growth can be attributed primarily to the increasing number of food manufacturers and the prevalent food processing industry, particularly in China, and India, growing population, rising importance of nutrition and personal well-being, the steady pace of industrialisation, rising personal care spending, and abundant availability of raw materials for collagen, and gelatin. The presence of a well-established meat processing sector increased government expenditure on industrial development, and substantial investment in research & development to generate collagen-based goods are factors driving market growth in the Asia Pacific region. China's meat business generated approximately 88.87 million metric tonnes in 2021. The significant investments in R&D activities to create collagen-based products are projected to promote the expansion of medical collagen market.

Our Research Methodology

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.
