Gelatin Market by Raw Material (Pig Skin, Bovine Hide, Bones and Others) for Food & Beverage, Nutraceuticals, Pharmaceuticals, Photography, Cosmetics and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2012 - 2018

Gelatin is a protein-rich substance obtained from collagen in animal tissues. It is a translucent and colorless substance and is soluble in water. It is usually found in the form of a semisolid gel and has a high molecular weight. It consists of up to 90% proteins and 8% to 12% water. The remainder is made up by mineral salts. Gelatin can be used both in food and in topical products; the main difference between the two is that the former is not treated with preservatives.

The global gelatin market has grown in recent years thanks to rising preference for high-protein, low-fat diets. The ready biocompatibility of gelatin helps its absorption into the human body, which is why the food and beverages industry has risen to become one of the leading end users of gelatin.

The report presents analysis about the global gelatin market’s historical development up to its current condition, and delivers forecasts based on solid analytical tools and reliable data. Major companies operating in the global gelatin market are also studied to understand their behavior better.

Overview of the Global Gelatin Market

The global gelatin market is segmented by three criteria: application, raw material, and geography.

By application, nutraceuticals and food and beverages lead the demand from the global gelatin market, due to rising acknowledgement of their health benefits as a protein-rich food item. Other than these two leading segments, gelatin is also used in pharmaceuticals, while nonedible gelatin is used in cosmetics and photography. Rising health awareness and the steadily increasing geriatric population are responsible for the growing demand for edible gelatin. 

By raw material, the global gelatin market is segmented into pig skin, bones, bovine hide, and others. Due to the high amount of collagen present in pig skin, the segment leads the global market, followed by bovine hides and bones. The pig skin segment took up 42% of the global gelatin market in 2011, while bones and cow hide collectively took up a majority share of 55% in the market. In the forecast period, gelatin acquired from bones is expected to grow in prominence, as bovine and porcine bones have a very high amount of collagen per unit weight.

By geography, the Europe market for gelatin leads the global charts, due to the presence of longstanding traditions of animal husbandry in the region and availability of the infrastructure necessary to extract gelatin. Europe held close to 40% of the global gelatin market, with half of it being accounted for by just Germany and France. In the forecast period, though, China will rise to become a leading regional segment of the global gelatin market, due to heavy government support.

Gelatin is a brittle, colorless, water soluble, translucent substance with high molecular weight. It is a rich source of protein derived from collagen present in animals such as bovines, pig, sheep and fish. Gelatin is viscous semi-solid gel; its general composition includes 85% to 90% protein, 2% to 4% mineral salts and 8% to 12% water. Edible gelatin is the most common form available that does not contain additives or preservatives. Non-edible gelatins are used mostly in cosmetics and photography.

 

The growing application in food & beverage, pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals industries is a key factor responsible for the growing demand for gelatin. The growing awareness among the health conscious people supplemented with the rise in aged population is expected to further fuel the gelatin market growth. However, being an animal derived product, gelatin market faces barriers due to cultural choices and regulatory restrictions, which could hinder the demand for gelatin over the forecast period. 

 

Pig skin consists of large amounts of collagen; hence it was used for manufacturing gelatin on a large scale. Pig skin accounted for over 42% of the market share that was utilized in manufacturing gelatin. Bones and bovine hides were the two largest raw material segment that accounted for over 55% of market share. Bone is the fastest growing raw material segment as bones of pigs and cows consists of large quantities of collagen.

 

In recent years, usage of gelatin has increased steadily in food and nutraceuticals industries. This is due to the rise in demand for low fat, healthy and high protein food, particularly among the health conscious people. Food & beverage application segment accounted for over 28% of the gelatin market share while nutraceuticals, the second largest application market, accounted for over 25%. 

 

Europe was the largest consumer of gelatin in 2011 and accounted for over 40% of the global production in 2011. The implementation of stringent regulatory policies in Europe in context to the control of BSE (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy) helped the gelatin market grow. Europe was followed by North America in terms of volumes of gelatin manufactured and accounted for over 23% of the global production in 2011. Germany and France were the primary consumers of gelatin in Europe, together, accounting for over 50% of the Europe’s consumption. China is expected to register the fastest growth among all regions owing to the stimulus offered by the government for development of infrastructure in the region. 

 

The gelatin market is concentrated in nature with the top five companies accounting for 70% of the market share in 2011. Rousselot S.A.S was the largest manufacturer of gelatin in 2011 and accounted for over 26% of the market share by volume. Gelita AG and PB Gelatin were the next largest companies in the gelatin market, together, accounting for over 34% of the market share in 2011. Both these companies provide excellent after sales service to their customers. The other key players in the gelatin market include Sterling Gelatin, Weishardt Group among others
