Collagen peptides are collagen sources which are easily digestible, highly bio-active and cold-soluble. These peptides are derived by breaking down the molecular bonds between individual collagen strands. It is an irreversibly hydrolyzed form of collagen, in which hydrolysis results in a reduction of protein fibrils into smaller peptides, which usually has a wide range of molecular weight linked with physical and chemical methods of denaturation.
Collagen ingestion guarantees the elasticity, durability, and regeneration of hair, skin, cartilage, tendon, joint, and bone. Collagen peptides occur naturally in animal tissue and cell extracellular matrix. The use of collagen peptides is mainly in the fortification of food products, in cosmetics or consumption in the form of supplements.
Increasing consumer health consciousness due to prevalence of various diseases, nutritional deficiencies and a desire for healthy aging among other factors has led to increased market demand for functional and enhanced food and beverage products. Increased consumer awareness for nutrition has resulted in demand for food products with specific functionalities that will meet their needs and help address different aspects of health.
Collagen peptide has vast use in sports nutrition and nutraceuticals. It is now also being used in functional food products, and is mixed in various beverages, ice creams, smoothies and shakes to give an anti-inflammatory protein boost. Collagen peptides has good taste, organoleptic characteristics, is odor-free and at the same time allows the food product to retain its quality.

Some of the leading players of global collagen peptides market include Amicogen, Inc., BioCell Technology, LLC, Capsugel Belgium NV, Catalent, Inc., ChinaTech Peptide Co. Ltd., Gelita AG, Norland Products Inc, Rousselot, Roxlor Group, Weishardt International, and Other Companies.
The key market players focus on key market strategies including mergers, acquisitions, alliances, and joint ventures. They also aim to strengthen their business presence in order to safeguard their reputation in the competitive market.
The increasing use of collagen in the food & beverage, nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries to boost the nutritional value in the end product primarily drives the growth of the global market for collagen peptides. North America is expected to be the leading region in terms of consumption globally for collagen peptides.
Owing to the rapidly increasing beauty industry demands for collagen peptides is increasing. Furthermore, the expanding population and changing lifestyle is expected to increase usage of beauty products involving collagen peptides, thereby boosting market growth. In addition, growing awareness of well-being and wrinkle-free skin and increasing awareness of the benefits of collagen peptide products over personal health care is expected to be driving the market.
However, the formulation of strict food safety laws due to concerns about the safety of collagen-based products, thus reducing the use of collagen substances, restricts the market for collagen-based peptides. In addition, increasing research and development activities for the development of new drug compositions and favorable restrictions for regenerative medicinal use are anticipated to deliver more opportunities for the major players in the collagen peptide market.
