According to this research study, heightened healthcare awareness, a growing geriatric population, and
widening application scope in areas such as nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, and food and beverages are
the main factors driving the global gelatin market. Gelatin is a translucent, water soluble, colorless, and a
brittle substance having a high molecular weight. It is derived from collagen found in animals such as fish,
sheep, pigs, and other bovines. With a composition of 8%-12% water, 2%-4% mineral salts, and 85%-90%
proteins, gelatin is a semi-solid gel that is viscous. The edible type of gelatin is devoid of preservatives and
additives. While the edible variety is the most commonly applied one, the non-edible variety has limited
application and is mainly applied in the area of photography and the cosmetics industry.
