Nowadays, the demand for protein is increased significantly. Proteins present in various food items are used by the human body to create specialized protein molecules that help produce hemoglobin (Hb), an important component of the blood that helps to carry oxygen to all parts of the body. It also helps to promote a healthy metabolism. Also, the demand for dietary supplements is growing due to the rising health awareness of weight management among all age groups across the world. Dietary supplements help to lead a healthier life by providing essential nutrients that a healthy body requires.

In nature, collagen is found exclusively in animals, especially in the flesh and connective tissues of mammals. Collagen is a part of the connective tissue that, in the skin, helps in firmness, suppleness, and constant renewal of skin cells. Collagen is vital for skin elasticity. With aging, the synthesis of collagen in the body reduces, which causes weakness, fatigue, aches, pain, and an overall lack of energy. Collagen supplements are intended to uphold skin, hair, nails, and body tissues of a person as metabolites of collagen assemble bone, skin, and ligaments by attracting fibroblasts that generate the synthesis of new collagen. In food, collagen is found mostly in the odd bits and tougher cuts of beef that contain connective tissue. Collagen is a vital component of connective tissue and is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up about 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content.

In terms of value, the collagen market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% to reach $7.53 billion by 2027, while in terms of volume, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% to reach 683.8 KT by 2027.
