The current scale of global gelatin market in 2018 and the distribution of consumption regions
Gelatin was first born in Europe in the 19th century. With the continuous growth of the world population and the increase in the use of gelatin in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food and beverage industries, the international gelatin market will continue to grow rapidly in the next few years. By 2012, the international gelatin market will continue to grow. Consumption will reach 359,000 tons. Europe is the world's largest producer of skin gelatin, and Asia is the world's leading producer of bone gelatin, especially in China, Japan and India.
The production of world gelatin is mainly monopolized by a small number of multinational companies, mainly monopolized by five companies including France Roussillon Group, Belgian Paibao Group, Germany Jalida Group, American K&K Group and Japan NITIM, and its production accounts for the global total. More than 80% of production. Many small and medium-sized gelatin companies in Asia (mainly concentrated in China and India) account for about 20%. The total production capacity of gelatin in China is about 50,000 tons. The main production enterprises include French Rousselot, Belgian Paibao and Qinghai Gelatin.
Relying on advanced industry technology and huge market demand, advanced countries and regions in the gelatin industry such as Europe and the United States continue to promote the development of gelatin use and variety. In addition to the outer membrane materials of hard capsules and soft capsules, some new medicines are used. Uses have been discovered, such as gelatin as a plasma solubilizer, medicinal coating materials, new materials for wound protection film, and microencapsulated outer film coating materials for oily drugs such as vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin K and cod liver oil. The widening of the use of gelatin products has led to an increase in demand. Medicinal gelatin is a high-grade product in gelatin. The consumption ratio of medicinal gelatin can reflect the technical level of gelatin in a region and the national economy. Due to advanced technology and developed economy, European and American countries have a higher proportion of medicinal gelatin consumption.
From the perspective of gelatin consumption, Europe is the world's largest gelatin market, accounting for 39.6% of the international gelatin market; North America is the second, accounting for 32.3%; Asia Pacific is 22.8%.
Although the market share of European and American countries is relatively large, these traditional markets have become saturated and the growth momentum is weak, while Asia and Latin America, especially in Asia, are growing rapidly, especially in China and India.
