The animal source segment is expected to account for the largest share in 2023.

The animal source segment is anticipated to dominate the gelatin market in 2023. Gelatin is obtained through partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from connective tissues, skin, tendons, and bones of various animal sources such as marine, including fish and squid, mammalian, poultry, and insects. It is widely used in food, health & nutrition, pharmaceutical, cosmetics & personal care, and other industries. Commercial production of gelatin is majorly from bovine and porcine bones and hides. Marine-sourced gelatin (fish) is produced and applied on a small scale. For instance, 41% of the global gelatin production is sourced from pig skin, 28.5% from bovine hides, and 29.5% from bovine bones.

The pharmaceuticals segment is projected to grow at the fastest rate among all the other applications in the gelatin market in 2023.

The pharmaceutical segment is considered to be the fastest-growing segment due to an increase in the use of gelatin in medicines, hard and soft capsules, tablet coating, granulation, surgical sponges, tableting, microencapsulation, and encapsulation. It is also used in plastic surgery, wound care, orthopedics, dentistry, and cardiovascular practices. Increasing instances of health and medical issues are mainly responsible for the overall growth in the usage of gelatin in medical applications.
