North America Gelatin Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the North America Gelatin Market according to our research experts:

Largest Segment By End User : <span style="font-family: 'regular_bold';color:#0e7db3;">Food and Beverages</span>

  • The North American gelatin market is solely driven by its application in the F&B industries, where the bakery, beverages, and confectionery categories lead its revenue sales. Among all, the bakery segment dominates the application, holding a share of 56%. This was attributed to the multi-functional properties of gelatin, boosting its applications in the preparation of fillings or toppings. However, during the forecast period, the beverages sector is projected to be the fastest-growing segment, with a 3.53% CAGR, by value.
  • Consumers are opting for actual protein sources such as gelatin for hair and skin health, rather than catalysts that claim equal potential. As a result, in terms of growth, personal care and cosmetics outpaced other segments, with a projected value CAGR of 6.36% during the forecast period.

Largest Country : <span style="font-family: 'regular_bold';color:#0e7db3;">United States</span>

  • The United States remained the largest consumer of gelatin in the region. Also, according to the International Food Information Council, on average, 43% of Americans look for healthy foods while still quoting taste as the primary motivator of purchase. This consumer willingness to eat healthy food without compromising taste also fostered the consumption of gelatin protein-infused RTE/RTC products. The segment is projected to record a CAGR of 2.10%, by value, in the forecast period.
  • Canada, on the other hand, holds the second-largest share in the market. With the growth of Jewish and Islamic populations in Canada, the market is reacting to the growing demand for gelling agents made from pork alternatives, such as beef or fish gelatin. However,  in the forecast period, the Mexican market for gelatin protein is projected to be the fastest-growing segment, with a value CAGR of 5.33%.
