Fish Gelatin: Market Outlook
Fish gelatin is a protein extracted from partial hydrolysis of collagen rich fish skins of green fin, squids, blackline fin, etc. These gelatin molecules are basically a bunch of amino acids held together by amide linkages, forming a long molecular chain of amino acids. These amino acids occurring in fish are responsible for building of connective tissues in the body.
The fish gelatin also acts as an important functional ingredient in skin and hair products. For instance, fish gelatin functions as a binding agent wherein it improves the water binding capacity of skin creams. A huge portion of commercial gelatin is derived from mammals. Due to rising concerns by animal welfare activists and organizations, and other sociocultural or religious reasons, the gelatin market experienced an increasing demand for alternative sources.
Large amounts of by-products are generated by the fish processing industry and hence an alternative potential source is available for production of gelatin. As fish gelatin is widely used by several industries owing to its functional and technological properties, the global fish gelatin market is expected to witness a positive growth trajectory over the forecast period.
Growing Demand for Functional and Specialty Foods to Bolster the Growth of Global Fish Gelatin Market
Robust growth of functional foods and speciality foods industry is expected to create a higher demand for fish gelatin over the forecast period. The growing demand for artisanal pastry and desserts would further accelerate the market growth. Soon there would be an upsurge in demand for protein and other vital nutrients by consumers.
This behaviour is expected to put fish gelatin in the category of preferred sources for protein. Adequate amounts of protein intake help in achieving a lean body mass, high energy levels, and reduction of hunger between meals. Many people suffer from protein deficiency and thus, are looking for protein consumption across various categories of foods and beverages.
Protein is required for healthy ageing and staying active. Fish gelatin can deliver high-quality protein along with all the essential amino acids and fatty acids. Therefore, the trend of protein intake in convenient formats will largely contribute to the growth of the fish gelatin market.
Global Fish Gelatin: Key Players

Opportunities for Global Fish Gelatin Market Participants:
Fish gelatin already has an established market in North American and European regions, hence manufacturers operating in the fish gelatin market should focus on strengthening their business footprints in other regions. The trend of vitamin gummies is gaining popularity and, therefore, manufacturers should focus on production of fish gelatin vitamin gummies and other forms of fish gelatin supplements.
The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a minimal impact on the fish gelatin market owing to fish geltain’s wide scale application in healthcare and nutrition. Consumers around the world are adopting all possible means of precautionary measures to avoid the contraction of this deadly disease.
Precautionary measures such as boosting immunity through functional food consumption and stacking up of nutrition rich foods with longer shelf life has become a norm. Hence, as fish gelatin belong to both the functional food and preserved food product category, the COVID-19 is expected to have a short term impact on the global fish gelatin market.
