Collagen Sausage Casings Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2019-2029

For many years, sausages were packed into organic sausage casings made from animal intestines. Still, due to a huge amount of recent research and new product development in the casings business, collagen casings are now readily available on the market. There are many different collagen casing sizes, shapes, and looks. Natural sausage casings have a foul odor because of gas buildup if improperly preserved. Additionally, compared to collagen casings, they have a far higher tendency to break (the natural casing is more likely to break during utilization, which could increase the danger of microbial contamination).

Contrarily, collagen casings have advanced significantly and are now accessible in various forms, dimensions, and aesthetics, some very similar to those of natural sausage casings. In addition, the creation of numerous processed or value-added meat products requires collagen casings. In addition, collagen casings can include various components that, when the product is stuffed and processed, will be coated on its surface, such as coloring agents, smoke flavors, spices, and others. These products are more in demand in various applications due to their high mechanical strength and fibrous character.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 had an adverse effect on the market for collagen sausage casings due to its negative effect on meat production and the supply chain, as well as the closure of restaurants, hotels, and cafes. The facilities for packaging meat were shut down due to increased COVID-19 cases among the workforces. Following the lockdown limitations, processing and shipping of meat became challenging for both meat producers and meat processors. Meat exports & imports were severely impeded by restrictions on the transportation of animals across the country and inside the country. The meat sector, including meat processors, meat producers, and the distribution chain, suffered due to the COVID-19 disease outbreak.

Market Growth Factors

Rising demand for organic meat

As consumer knowledge, the adoption of healthy eating habits, and public health consciousness rise, there is an increasing demand for organic meat in developed areas like Europe and North America. As a result, it is anticipated that organic beef used in creating processed meat will take off in developed markets. This is anticipated to increase demand for collagen sausage casings over the projection period because casings are frequently used in the meat processing industry. Thus, the market is predicted to grow with the rising demand for organic meat.

Growing demand for processed foods

The demand for sausages using natural casings, such as sausage casings, is driven by consumers' rising awareness of wholesome and secure meals. In addition, expanding macroeconomic elements that favor the industry include increased competition for processed foods and growing interest in sustainable manufacturing methods. Additional variables boosting demand include the advantages of collagen casings retaining a consistent form and improving food quality. This growing demand for processed food will also raise the demand for sausages, eventually raising the need for collagen sausage casings.

Market Restraining Factors

Carcinogenic nature of processed meat

Since red meat contains certain chemicals like heme, the carcinogenic nature of processed meat may impede the expansion of the collagen sausage casings market. Additionally, Haem is in charge of producing N-nitroso chemicals, which have been shown to harm the cells lining the bowel and result in bowel cancer. Consequently, the risk of cancer increases by eating more than 700 grams of processed meat weekly. Increasing consumer knowledge, rising health consciousness, and rising demand for healthier food products are only a few variables that could encourage people to shun processed meat consumption. Therefore, during the forecast period, the expansion of the collagen sausage casings market could be constrained by the cancer-causing potential of red and processed meat.

Product Type Outlook

Based on product type, the collagen sausage casings market is characterized into non-edible and edible. In 2022, the edible segment held the highest revenue share in the collagen sausage casings market. Due to the increased popularity of exotic and gourmet sausages, the desire for organic & natural food items, the preference for meat-based snacks, and convenience food products, the edible market is predicted to expand significantly. In addition, edible collagen casings created from alternative sources like seaweed and other plant-based materials have also been developed due to the expanding popularity of vegan and plant-based diets.
