In the realm of personal well-being, consumers are selecting various types of functional foods and nutraceuticals to avert age-related diseases and for improving their health. Some of the major factors that are driving the global nutraceuticals market are awareness about the product, ability to buy the product and the wide ranging choice that the consumers have in this segment of the market.

Since collagen is an important part of such nutraceuticals, the market of collagen peptide and gelatin is also being positively stimulated by the growth in the nutraceuticals market.
