Collagen strengthens and protects various body structures and protects, such as the skin, by preventing the absorption and spreading of pathogenic substances, environmental toxins, micro-organisms, and cancerous cells. Collagen protein is the cement that holds everything together. Collagen is also present in all the smooth muscle tissues, blood vessels, digestive tract, heart, gallbladder, kidneys, and bladder, holding the cells and tissues together.
Collagen and gelatin are widely used in the food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries due to their excellent biocompatibility, easy biodegradability, and weak antigenicity. Fish collagen and gelatin are now of renewed interest due to the safety and religious concerns related to mammals.
The growth of this market is backed by the growing use of collagen in the food industry, the increasing inclination towards protein and nutricosmetics consumption, the rising applications in healthcare, the increasing technical applications, and the growing use of collagen-based biomaterials. Moreover, a rise in per capita income opens untapped geographies, and the growing food processing industry provides significant growth opportunities in this market.
However, the safety concerns, religious constraints, and the growing use of alternatives obstruct the growth of this market to some extent. On the other hand, dealing with safety concerns and improving the processing technology are the key challenges in this market.
Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Collagen Market
The COVID-19 pandemic adversely hit many economies around the globe. The pandemic has affected over 100 countries (European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control). To control the spread of this disease and avoid related severe consequences, governments across the globe have announced partial or complete lockdown, which has majorly impacted many manufacturing and service industries, including collagen.
Per current independent scientific research dated 19th March 2020the total number of NK and T cells was decreased or exhausted in COVID-19 patients. Importantly, in patients convalescing after therapy, the number of NK and T cells was restored. These results suggest that the functional exhaustion of cytotoxic lymphocytes is associated with SARS-CoV-2 (cause of COVID-19) infection. Hence, SARS-CoV-2 infection may break down antiviral immunity at an early stage.

However, ingesting collagen peptides improves the number of NK cells and T cells and, subsequently, the immunity of humans. Immune competence decreases with age. It has been reported that the number of CD8+ CD28+ T cells correlates strongly with age because the number of these cells decreases with age. Ingestion of collagen peptides helps in building immunity amongst senior citizens too. This has increased the demand for collagen.
Moreover, consumers’ interest in collagen-based products is growing in various applications, including food & beverage, nutraceutical supplements, cosmetics, and medical products. Consumers are particularly focusing on health and performance nutrition with the nutraceutical collagen. Thus, all these factors support the growth of the global collagen market.
