Collagen hydrolysate, also known as collagen peptide or hydrolyzed collagen, are chemicals with low molecular weight attained from collagen hydrolysis. Collagen hydrolysate is available as white odorless powder which is neutral in taste and easily soluble in liquids. Collagen is the most abundant source of protein in the human body. Yet, collagen levels decline with ageing humans and affects humans’ health and well-being.

Collagen binds cells and tissue together, and maintains the body’s health, integrity, shape, and strength. Widening consumer interest and need for collagen-based products extracted through many animal sources, including bovine, ovine, porcine, marine and poultry should promote product market size.

Collagen hydrolysates aim at providing enhanced muscle health, gut performance, and boost in energy levels with increased strength. However, regulations over the imports of raw material for the production of gelatin and collagen products in European Union is anticipated to restrain market growth to some extent.

Global collagen business is poised to surpass over USD 6 billion at the end of 2025. High quality native collagen exhibits enhanced gelling, emulsification and food binding characteristics utilized in production of chewing gums, jellies and deserts. Rising collagen application as a biomaterial since it forms fibers with extra strength and stability through its self-aggregation and cross-linking will fuel product growth.

Companies invest in product innovations and existing facilities expansion to provide efficient collagen-based materials with enhanced functional characteristics. Recent technological advancements including formation of collagen-based pellet as gene delivery carrier during the formation of facial bone will stimulate overall collagen hydrolysates market demand.

Based on application, collagen hydrolysates are segmented as pharmaceutical/biomedical, food & beverage, nutraceuticals, cosmetics and others. Collagen hydrolysates market growth is attributed to its penetration in pharmaceutical applications as therapeutic agent for the treatment of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.

Pharmaceutical-grade collagen hydrolysate (PCH) is manufactured by hydrolysis of pharmaceutical gelatin. Based on clinical studies, 10g of dosage levels of PCH increases hydroxyproline concentration level in blood which relieves patients form knee and hip pain. Growing prevalence of chronic diseases coupled with collagen application in bone reconstruction to supplement overall product growth.

Increasing market growth is attributed to growing population of working women and changing lifestyles who enhance the demand for ready-to eat collagen products. Currently, hydrolyzed collagen supplements are being consumed for recovery after plastic surgeries, burn and wound care, cardiovascular practices and dental applications. Widening applications of these supplements in treatment of patients with specific disorders of digestion, absorption and amino acid metabolism will enhance collagen hydrolysates market share.

Europe collagen hydrolysates industry growth is attributed to stringent environmental regulations

Europe Collagen Hydrolysates Market

European collagen hydrolysates market is expected to achieve over 7.5% CAGR up to 2026. Europe is categorized by a trend towards beauty supplements due to which demand for collagen-based cosmetics is growing.
