Gelatin Market - Snapshot

Gelatin is regarded as a special and unique hydrocolloid, serving multiple functions with a wide range of applications. The main sources of gelatin include pigskin, cattle bones and cattle hide. Gelatin replacement has been a major issue in recent years due to the emerging and lucrative vegetarian, halal and kosher markets. It has recently gained increased interest, especially within Europe.

Gelatin is used as an excipient in the production of hard capsules and softgels. It has lower production costs, fewer manufacturing complexities and secures excellent active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) dissolution rates. It also helps protect sensitive ingredients from oxygen, light, microbial growth and other forms of contamination. Pharmaceutical gelatin offers a number of technical advantages over non-gelatin excipients such as HMPC for hard capsules and modified starch for softgels. In addition, it is the only excipient without e-number. So it’s considered a natural ingredient in accordance with the ISO technical specification on definitions and technical criteria.

Hydrolyzed gelatin is an important component of plasma substitutes, a class of parenteral formulation known as volume expander. When highly purified with low endotoxin level, it can be used to temporarily expand blood volume during medical emergencies.

Gelatin is a widely available hemostatic agent used by surgeons to minimize blood loss during surgery. Gelatin-based hemostats are typically made from gelatin derived from porcine collagen (pork skin), and come in the form of sponges, strips, powder or nanofibers.  Gelatin-based hemostats can absorb more than forty times their own weight making them ideal for creating an artificial blood clot and stemming blood flow. When combined with thrombin, gelatin-based hemostats can also help in the formation of blood clots. Because gelatin is highly biocompatible, gelatin sponges can be left in the body and will naturally dissolve. Some of these in vivo applications require specific dissolution rates, so the gelatin sponges can be specially configured to suit individual needs.

Gelatin Market: Overview

Gelatin market is growing due to the increased usage of supplements and drugs in the pharmaceutical sector. The application of gelatin in 3D printing of human tissues and organs is a prime driving factor responsible for the gelatin market growth.

Gelatin is produced out of collagen that has been permanently hydrolyzed. This collagen is generally discovered in fish, bovines, pigs, and sheep, and is also considered as a robust source of protein. Gelatin consists 2-4% mineral salts, 8-12% water, and 85-90% protein. Preservative and additives-free gelatin that are edible are used extensively across the globe. Photography and cosmetics industry uses the gelatin in its non-edible form.
