The animal source segment is expected to hold the largest market share in 2023, as gelatin is commonly obtained through partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from various animal sources such as marine, mammalian, poultry, and insects. Commercial production of gelatin is primarily sourced from bovine and porcine bones and hides, with marine-sourced gelatin produced and applied on a smaller scale.
