Gelatin has a long history in China, dating back to the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), when it was used for making edible jelly and medicinal products. Gelatin was traditionally made from animal sources such as pigskin, bovine hides, and bones. In the early 20th century, the use of gelatin in China expanded to include a wide range of applications, including food, pharmaceuticals, and photography. During the 1920s and 1930s, several gelatin factories were established in China, which produced gelatin for use in the manufacture of photographic film and other products. In the 1950s and 1960s, the Chinese government began to invest in the development of the gelatin industry, with a focus on increasing production capacity and improving quality. The government also established a number of research institutes and universities to support the development of new gelatin technologies. Today, China is one of the largest producers and consumers of gelatin in the world, with a significant portion of global gelatin production occurring in the country. The Chinese gelatin industry is highly competitive, with numerous small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) operating alongside larger, multinational companies. According to the research report "China gelatin Market Overview, 2028," published by Bonafide Research, the china gelatin market is of about 341.1 Million in 2022. As the industrial use of gelatin continue to increase in the china, Gelatin consumption will rise as well, and it varies by industry. Gelatin is used as a thickening ingredient, gelling agent, stabilizing agent, and other things in a variety of industries, including pharmaceutical, FMCG, beverages, and cosmetics (adhesion, texturizer, emulsifying agent). Increase in pharmaceutical, Nutraceuticals & FMCG production will increase usage thickening ingredient, gelling agent, stabilizing agent. China is importer of cosmetics products & more than quarter of cosmetics are imported in china, china is also net importer of pharmaceuticals & its import substitution will increase gelatin use in cosmetic production. During pandemic & post pandemic Pharmaceutical, Nutraceuticals consumption is at peak & FMCG consumption was highest during pandemic, moreover is one of the leading food producers so use of gelatin in food processing can lead to exponential growth of gelatin. The use of gelatin in China has expanded to include a wide range of applications, including food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and industrial products. Gelatin is used in a variety of food products, such as confectionery, dairy, and meat products. It is also widely used in the pharmaceutical industry for the manufacture of capsules, tablets, and other drug delivery systems. In recent years, the Chinese gelatin industry has faced a number of challenges, including the rising cost of raw materials, increased competition from alternative products such as carrageenan and xanthan gum, and concerns about food safety and quality. However, the industry continues to grow, driven by increasing demand for gelatin in both domestic and international markets. In China, both type A and type B gelatin are used, but type B gelatin is more commonly used than type A. Type B gelatin is derived from alkali-cured collagen, typically from bovine hides and bones, and is used in a wide range of applications, including food, pharmaceuticals, and technical applications. Type A gelatin, on the other hand, is derived from acid-cured collagen, typically from porcine skin or bone, and is used primarily in food and pharmaceutical applications that require a high degree of clarity and gel strength. Overall, the use of gelatin in China is widespread and diverse, with applications in a range of industries including food, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. In China, the production, import, and export of gelatin are regulated by the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs. Gelatin must comply with strict quality and safety standards set by the government, including limits on heavy metals, pathogens, and other contaminants. In addition, gelatin production facilities must meet strict environmental and safety regulations to ensure that their operations do not pose a risk to public health or the environment. The government also closely monitors the use of gelatin in food products to ensure that it is used safely and appropriately. Imported gelatin must also comply with Chinese regulations and undergo inspection and testing before it can be sold in the country. This includes testing for contaminants and compliance with Chinese labeling requirements. In recent years, the Chinese government has also taken steps to promote the development of the gelatin industry in China, including supporting research and development of new gelatin products, and encouraging the use of alternative sources of gelatin, such as plant-based and microbial sources. China is a major producer of gelatin, with several large companies involved in the production and export of gelatin.
