Market size and Growth - Collagen Peptides Consumer Industry

In 2018, US consumers had spent approximately $122 million on collagen peptide products. By 2024, the global market size for global collagen peptides will reach $3,820 million from $2,950 million in 2019.





The research team explored different industry reports and leveraged the publicly available data on market research databases of Market Insider, Market Watch, Mordor Intelligence, and MarketsandMarkets, among others, as we tried to find the size and growth of the collagen peptides consumer industry in the United States. From the available data, we found information about the global size and growth of the collagen peptides. However, we couldn't find US-specific details to answer the query.

We tried to leverage the recent credible media publications, press releases, and news articles published in the US in hopes of finding the information we need. We explored Forbes, the New York Times, the Medical News Today, the USA Inquirer, PR Newswire, and Globe Newswire, among others, but this strategy also failed to uncover the information we need. These sources talked about collagen peptides but no information regarding the size and growth of the collagen peptides consumer industry in the US. The news articles we found focused on the reviews of products such as skin care products with collagen peptides. PRNewswire and Globe Newswire have some reports however there is no US-specific.

We then moved on researching through industry related sites after learning that collagen peptides have a full range application in the health and wellness industry. We searched in sites including but not limited to Health, Vital Protein, Today's Dietitian, and RunnersWorld. Mostly, we found content that educates people about collagen and the best collagen products to buy. After extensive research, we were able to find content in WebMD and NutrionalOutlook that have specific information about the market size and growth of collagen peptides consumers in the US. However, the insights we found were limited to only a particular time, as shown on the key findings.

We tried to leverage the information we gathered in the global market reports in hopes of triangulating the answer to the query, but our attempts were unproductive. Efforts to find the market share of the US in the global market size of collagen peptides was unsuccessful. We were only able to find the share of North America as a whole.
