Collagen peptide is a natural body protein, which is produced inside the body and is a primary constituent of the fibrous connective tissue found in skin, bones, and cartilage. Initially collagen and elastin are produced in the body to prevent dermal layers of skin from developing skin folds. These substances create collagen peptide bundles that results in firm skin of the body. Additionally, these proteins play an important role in keeping the dermal layers of skin healthy. When these collagen peptide bundles decrease, the appearance of skin wrinkles turns out to be more evident. To address these challenges, most of the pharmaceutical and skin care companies started manufacturing collagen creams, injections and capsules with an intention to produce smoother and healthier skins of all ages. Collagen peptide is used in pharmaceutical, food, dietary supplements, and cosmetic industries. They have various application segments such as in sports performance, weight management, skin health, and joint and bone health. These products typically manufactured as fragrance-free and hypo-allergic skin care products.
Collagen peptide has a huge growth potential based on its applications in cosmetics, and bone and joint health. Increase in the numbers of aging population around the world as well as the increasing incidence of bone and joint ailments is fueling the demand for collagen peptide. Current major trend of younger looking skin and the increase in consumer awareness about the benefits of collagen peptide are expected to increase the consumption of the collagen peptide enriched foodstuffs and dietary supplements.
According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Association (AAOS), almost 80% of the world’s hip fractures are attributed to osteoporosis and this percentage is expected to increase in coming years. Currently, over 27% of world’s population is being affected with osteoporosis, especially in females in the post-menopausal stage. These contributing factors are likely to increase the market for collagen peptide as a savior in making those joints stronger. However, at present, there is a lack of awareness in the end user market regarding the use of collagen peptide in terms of skin and bone ailments. In the light of this problem manufacturers are expected to prove the efficacy of collagen peptide by showing the results of human clinical studies. Bovine is the major source of raw material used for the collagen peptide production followed by fish and pork.
The market for collagen peptide can be segmented based on type of sources and by application. Based on type of sources, the market is classified into bovine, porcine, chicken, marine and others, whereas, the based on type of application, the market can be segmented into bone and joint health, nutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals, pet food, pharmaceuticals and others.
Bone and joint health application segment of collagen peptide is facing a competition from the existing well-known ingredients such as glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate which has proven results in osteoporosis treatment. Bone and joint health (Osteoporosis) is the major application segment followed by cosmeceuticals, dietary supplements and pet food. The collagen peptide market is geographically segmented into Asia-Pacific, Japan, North America and South America and Europe. China and Japan are the most popular areas and increasing in awareness of the benefits of collagen peptide in cosmetics, where as in Europe bone health is the most popular application of collagen peptide.
Geographically, North America accounts for the largest share of the collagen peptide market followed by the European region. The dominance of North America in this market is seen due to rapidly aging population who can afford high cost of treatment and presence of various market leaders, which allows easy penetration in the North America region. Additionally, growing healthcare awareness among the population and rising number of osteoporosis patients further driving the growth of this market. However, Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness fastest growth rate in the near future due to improving purchasing power and the westernization of diets, increase in people’s standards of living in the emerging economies like India and china are expected to create more demand for collagen peptide market. Innovation in the collagen peptide application in pet food will create more opportunities in future
