Global Eggshell Membrane Market to Witness Moderate Growth During 2021-2026, Impelled by Increasing Incidences of Osteoarthritis

Published on Sep 08, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Eggshell Membrane Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026," the global eggshell membrane market size reached grew at a CAGR of around 6% during 2015-2020. Eggshell membranes refer to the thin film lining the insides of eggshells. It is a bi-layered wall membrane with a reticulated structure that is found between the egg white and eggshell, constituted mostly from protein. Fibrous proteins, including osteopontin, collagen, and sialoprotein, can be separated from the shell using chemical, mechanical and vacuum processes. The isolated membrane is then partially hydrolyzed and further dried to obtain a fine powder. The powder is considered to be a rich source of glycosaminoglycans and sulfated glycoproteins that can be used as potential dietary resources to improve bone density. Moreover, it can also be employed for diverse applications in environmental engineering, biomedical engineering, and the food and beverages sector.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Eggshell Membrane Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the rising geriatric population across the globe. With the rising incidences of osteoarthritis among the masses, there has been a considerable rise in the sales of egg membrane derivatives since they are known to promote joint health, improve bone density and relieve arthritic pain as they are a rich source of proteins and calcium. These derivatives can also be utilized in the formulation of numerous pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, thereby providing an impetus to the market growth. Moreover, egg membrane is increasingly being utilized in the healthcare sector for bone grafting and drug-delivery therapy, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, due to the anti-aging, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties associated with eggshell membrane, they are extensively employed in the formulation of several cosmetics and personal care products across the globe. Coupled with the easy product availability across the online and offline retail channels, this is acting as a major growth-inducing factor. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the growing usage of eggshell membrane derivates in the pet food industry and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to witness moderate growth during 2021-2026.
