The growing consciousness among people for their health and well-being contributes to the collagen market growth.

The consumption levels of collagen have seen a spike in recent days, primarily due to the increasing awareness among people regarding the health benefits of collagen. In addition, the trend of people being choosy and conscious regarding their dietary preferences and consuming products that can contribute to their health and well-being has been noticed in the recent past. Considering the nutritional health benefits that collagen offers, the usage of collagen has grown significantly among people.

The growing adoption of functional foods is expected to boost the collagen market.

Collagen is a functional food ingredient. The awareness among people regarding the advantages of functional foods is growing significantly, leading to increased consumption, including collagen. Collagen naturally develops in the skin, bones, and connective tissues of animals and is considered a dietary supplement due to its associated benefits. Collagen helps in bettering skin health, joint mobility, and gut health. In the coming days, the need for collagen-based health products is expected to grow notably owing to the increasing number of people knowing their benefits.

According to the statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 1.4 billion people are anticipated to turn more than 60 years old by 2030. Collagen plays a major role in maintaining youthfulness in the skin and body. As more and more people become aged with time, the demand for anti-aging products has picked up the pace, which includes collagen-based products. Collagen is a commonly found ingredient in almost all anti-aging products. The desire to keep beauty appealing and the body healthy can be seen in the aging population of the current world, which is boosting the demand for these products. In addition, the manufacturers of anti-aging products invest significant amounts in conducting R&D activities, product launches, and promotional activities, which is predicted to favor the growth rate of the global collagen market.

In addition, factors such as the growing popularity of sports nutrition, increasing usage of collagen in the F&B industry, and increasing consumption of organic products are expected to promote the collagen market growth. Furthermore, growing consumption levels of protein among people and increasing awareness of nutricosmetics are expected to support the growth rate of the collagen market.


High costs associated with collagen-based products are one of the key factors limiting the growth rate of the global collagen market. Due to these products, consumers who are price sensitive are using alternative options that come at a better price, limiting the adoption of collagen-based products. Furthermore, another major factor hampering the market growth is poor awareness levels of collagen-based products and the associated benefits among people of emerging and underdeveloped countries. In addition, factors such as issues associated with standardization, supply chain, are regulatory barriers are impeding the growth of the collagen market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global collagen market

The global collagen market has experienced a mixed impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. The situations caused by the recent outbreak, such as the shutdown of manufacturing facilities, shipping restrictions, and border closures between countries, negatively affected the collagen market's growth in the initial days of the pandemic. Furthermore, with constraints in farm labor, processing, transportation, and logistics, as well as significant swings in demand, the COVID-19 pandemic put unprecedented strain on ingredient supply networks. However, in the second half of 2020, supply networks showed extraordinary resilience in facing these challenges. However, the demand for nutraceuticals and supplements to boost immunity has promoted the consumption of collagen and favored market growth. Likewise, the COVID-19 pandemic has positively and negatively impacted the global collagen market growth. However, considering the reduced impact of COVID-19, the global collagen market is anticipated to showcase a healthy CAGR in the coming years.
