Top Companies in Collagen Industry - Ashland (US), Darling Ingredients (US) and Tessenderlo Group (Belgium)

The collagen industry, estimated at USD 5.1 billion in 2023 and poised to achieve a 5.3% CAGR, reaching USD 7.4 billion by 2030, is experiencing transformative shifts and innovations. In the fields of nutrition and cosmetics, collagen has emerged as a prominent focus. There is an increased comprehension of collagen and a growing desire for this protein, which can be addressed through the consumption of collagen supplements or by augmenting the body's natural collagen synthesis. This has led to a heightened demand for collagen in various forms.

A key factor fuelling this increased demand is the continual growth of the world's population, especially in emerging markets. As populations expand and disposable incomes increase, there is a corresponding rise in the consumption of collagen. The escalating global population is exerting a substantial influence on the collagen market. As the world's population continues to grow, there is a corresponding surge in the demand for collagen, driven by increased awareness and consumption of collagen-based products. This upswing can be attributed to a growing recognition of collagen's diverse applications in various industries, including food, cosmetics, and healthcare. As the population expands, so does the demand for products that promote health and well-being, resulting in a notable boost in the collagen market on a global scale.
