Market Trends of Europe Collagen Industry

Increased Application of Collagen in End-User Industry

  • Collagen beauty supplements are believed to enhance skin strength and elasticity, thus providing an anti-wrinkle effect to the skin. Hydrolyzed collagen used in skincare products enhances the appearance of dry or damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness. Thus, they find wide application in skin care in the fast-growing European cosmetics industry. Additionally, the increasing usage of skincare and cosmetic products in the region is further fueling the market's application capabilities in the beauty and personal care industry.
  • According to Cosmetica Italia, Germany consumed the largest amount of cosmetics in 2021, valued at approximately USD 13.6 billion. This was followed by France and Italy, at approximately USD 11.96 billion and USD 10.6 billion, respectively. Collagen is widely used in face masks, creams, serums, and many other beauty products. The growing popularity of collagen-based beauty drinks and collagen peptide-based beverages like Sanotact and BeautyHacker beauty collagen drinks in Germany contributes to this growth.
  • Furthermore, market players are conducting in-depth research into the extensive applications of collagen to create innovative product formulations. Their focus extends beyond skincare, as they are actively exploring its potential in various other products. In Europe, collagen is experiencing growing usage in the creation of gummy supplements related to beauty and sports. This has led to the development of a range of gummies that incorporate collagen-based ingredients, making claims of enhancing both skin health and overall well-being.
  • For instance, in May 2023, Sirio Europe (SIRIO), a global nutraceutical contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), announced the launch of its two new collagen-based gummy products under its sports nutrition and beauty categories at Vitafoods Europe. Therefore, companies are launching innovative products to address the growing consumer needs. Such developments are further expected to boost and support the market's growth during the forecast period.

United Kingdom and Spain are Witnessing Increasing Demand for Collagen Infused Products

  • Collagen products in the United Kingdom and Spain have been witnessing huge demand over the years. According to the Spanish National Statistics Office, the number of people aged over 65 years has been witnessing a rise in the past few years. According to World Bank data, approximately 19.9% were over 65 in 2021, compared to 19.07% in 2017. Owing to the higher aging population in the country, there is an increasing demand for health supplements for several issues, such as muscle pain and arthritis.
  • Additionally, manufacturers use collagen powder to fortify functional drinks, which are among the most popular drinks in Spain. The demand for beverages made from collagen increased as a result of the high concentrations of hydroxyproline, arginine, glycine, and proline contained in collagen, all of which are associated with boosting energy. Hence, consumption of energy drinks infused with collagen is on the rise. According to the British Soft Drinks Association, in 2021, a combined 906 million liters of sports and energy drinks were consumed in the United Kingdom.
  • Moreover, the countries have also witnessed an increasing demand for cosmetic surgery, which, on the other hand, has led to an advancement in technology inputs along with Co2 laser treatments that create heating on the skin, thereby stimulating the collagen content of the skin. The marine-based collagen segment of the market is highly competitive and characterized by the presence of a large number of international and regional players in Spain, owing to increased competition between manufacturers based on technology differentiation, brand name, quality of service, price differentiation, and technical expertise.
  • For instance, in January 2021, Rousselot, a Darling Ingredients brand producing collagen-based solutions, launched an MSC-certified marine collagen peptide, Peptan, at the virtual Beauty & Skincare Formulation Conference 2021. This ingredient is sourced from 100% wild-caught marine white fish, certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), and it is majorly used in premium nutricosmetics and dietary supplements. The ingredient is produced in Rousselot's facilities in France and is available worldwide. The major driving factors behind the launch are the rising new product developments with collagen sourced from wild-caught ocean fish and the rising demand for fish collagen beauty and dietary supplement products.
