Medical and Research Grade Collagen Market Forecast to 2027

The “Global Medical and Research Grade Collagen Market to 2027 – Analysis and Forecasts by Source (Bovine, Porcine, Poultry, Marine, Others); Product (Gelatin, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Native Collagen, Others); Application (Haemostats, Vascular Grafts, Tissue Scaffolds, Cartilage Repair, Wound Care, Bone Grafts, Others)” The scope of study involves understanding on the factors responsible for this growth of medical and research grade collagen market along with the estimates and forecasts of the revenue and market share analysis and also spots the significant medical and research grade collagen players in the market and their key developments.

Collagen is mainly found in the human body and occurs mostly in fibrous tissues such as ligaments, skin, tendons, cornea, blood vessels, bones, cartilages, and intervertebral disc. Medical and research grade collagen is widely used in medical applications such as wound healing, tissue engineering, reconstructive surgeries, bone grafts, and cosmetic surgeries. Collagen has good haemostatic properties and facilitates wound healing. It is used in cell cultures as it supports cell proliferation in lattice structures and cell-binding domain. Hence collagen is widely used as a biomaterial in the medical industry. The rise in regenerative surgeries done on patients to treat certain forms of skin cancers, burn injuries, birth defects, and congenital diseases is expected to drive the medical and research grade. The growing incidences of age-related illnesses in the aging population, such as osteoporosis, arthritis, and cancer, is also expected to augment the demand for collagen used in surgical procedures during the forecast period.

Collagen is also the key component of the ligaments and tendons. It can be used as a biological skin substitute. Biological properties such as low antigenicity, no toxicity, and minimal biodegradation make it a favorable biomaterial in applications such as reconstructive surgeries. Collagen can be molded into artificial implants, and scaffolds for regeneration of tissues, owing to their excellent biocompatibility. The use of collagen as excipients for various forms of drugs, and as vector systems for the controlled release of active substances in the pharmaceutical industry is expected to boost the sales of pharmaceutical and medical grade collagen. It is also used to improve the elasticity and suppleness of the skin by repairing damage caused to skin by aging and exposure to sunlight and UV radiation. The major medical application of collagen is catgut suture, which is derived from the intestinal collagen of bovines. Catgut sutures are used to promote wound healing. Demand for hydrolyzed collagen is anticipated to grow as it is widely used in surgical procedures such as bone grafting, tissue engineering, and dental surgeries.

Collagen scaffolds have been widely used in the field of tissue engineering. However, the poor mechanical property of collagen scaffolds has limited its applications in tissue engineering and reconstructive surgery to some extent. To overcome this shortcoming, collagen scaffolds are being cross-linked by chemical or physical processes or modified with natural or synthetic polymers and inorganic materials. Collagen is used to form a matrix of regenerating tissues for treating burn injuries and growing damaged tissues. These factors propel the demand for the medical and research grade collagen market.

The medical and research grade collagen market is bifurcated based on source as bovine, porcine, poultry, marine, and others. In 2018, the bovine industry segment dominated the global medical and research grade collagen market. Collagen is abundantly available protein in mammal tissue and it has been used in medical applications for centuries. Bovine is basically obtained from the bone and skin of the cow. The use of this type of collagen is impacted by the cow’s development stage. This collagen delivers 18 amino acids which include 8 essential amino acids. It is a viable source of proline and glycine. Bovine collagen is used to produce medical devices and this collagen is derived from purified collagen extracts obtained from the bovine dermis. Many of the companies obtain the bovine raw material for medical applications mainly from veterinary controlled herds.

The global medical and research grade collagen market by geography is segmented into six regions, including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. The Europe region is expected to account for the largest share of the global medical and research grade collagen market in 2018, followed by North America. In addition the, Germany and France are the two key countries in the Europe region which are expected to continue its dominance in terms of market share throughout the forecast period from 2019 to 2027. Some of the major players in the medical and research grade collagen market include Advanced Biomatrix Inc., Collagen Matrix, Inc., Collagen Solutions Plc, Cologenesis Healthcare Pvt Ltd, Croda International Plc, DSM, INNOCOLL, Integra Lifesciences, Nitta Gelatin Na Inc. and Rousselot among others.
