Technavio’s analysts categorize the global gelatin market into four major segments by raw materials. They are:
- Bovine hides
- Pig skin
The top three segments based on raw materials for the global gelatin market are discussed below:
Global gelatin market by pig skin
In 2016, pig skin was the major segment of the global gelatin market and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The hydrolysis of the collagen content present in pig skin produces the gelatin. Porcine gelatin can be used for human consumption.
According to Ajay Adhikari, a lead bio-chemicals and bio-materials research analyst from Technavio, “The quality of gelatin depends on the production time. The shorter the production time, better will be the quality of the gelatin. Gelatin derived from pig skin is gaining momentum because of its superior quality, short production process time, and less time required for pre-treatment.”
Global gelatin market by bovine hides
In 2016, bovine hides were the second largest raw material segment for the global gelatin market, and the segment is likely to observe considerable growth over the forecast period. Bovine hides are the skin of cattle and are a good source of collagen.
Global gelatin market by bones
In 2016, bones were the fastest growing raw material segment for the global gelatin market, and the segment anticipated to observe considerable growth during the forecast period. “Gelatin derived from bones is mainly used in the pharmaceutical industry for the production of soft elastic capsules, encapsulation, and tablet coatings. Bones are mainly sourced from slaughter houses and meat processing units,” adds Ajay.
Initially, cattle bones are washed and cleaned to remove unnecessary substances. The bones are crushed and sorted in different sizes, as per the requirement. Afterward, several mechanical and chemical processes remove the grease and fat content.
The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:
