Key Market Trends

Increased Application in Food and Beverage Segment

Collagen is widely used in the food and beverage industry to improve the elasticity, consistency, and stability of products, especially in the snack bars and soup bases. Collagen also enhances the quality and nutritional and health value of these food products. It is used as an additive in food, including snack bars, soup bases, desserts, and pastry glazes, during processing, to improve color, texture, flavor, or quality. Collagen peptides, which are used as food additives, help to improve the rheological properties of sausages and frankfurters while providing animal nutritive fibers in adequate amounts. The heat-treated collagen fiber has been increasingly used as an emulsifier in various food, especially in acidic products. In addition, heat-stabilized collagen fiber acts as a natural alternative to synthetic emulsifiers, for use in acidic food and drink formulations

South Africa Holds the Maximum Share in the Market

South African manufacturers have been constantly embracing innovative production techniques, in order to gain cost-leadership in the market. Changing consumer lifestyle, rising healthcare expenditure, and a flourishing retail sector are driving the market’s growth. In the country, Gelita is the only company with a gelatin plant. It caters to the majority of domestic demand. The plant produces both edible and technical gelatin, along with products, like Liquifine, liquid gelatin. Beauty product manufacturers rely on collagen-based beauty drinks due to the high growth potential in the country. Also, with the entry of collagen-infused beauty drinks, such as Collagen Lift (a daily drink to increase collagen densities and reduce wrinkles up to 50%), in the market, consumers are gaining awareness of the health benefits of the ingredients, thereby, demanding more of collagen-infused products while positively impacting the market growth.
