Gelatin has been used for centuries in various forms, including as a food ingredient and in traditional medicine. Its use in the Middle East and Africa dates back to ancient times, with evidence of gelatin production and use in Egypt as early as 1550 BC. In the modern era, gelatin production in the region began in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with the establishment of several gelatin factories in Egypt, Tunisia, and Morocco. These factories primarily produced gelatin from animal hides and bones, which were readily available in the region due to the large number of livestock animals. Today, the Middle East & Africa gelatin market is driven by the increasing demand for gelatin in various applications such as food, pharmaceuticals, and Nutraceuticals. The food industry is the largest end-use segment for gelatin in the region, followed by pharmaceuticals and Nutraceuticals. The growing population and rising disposable income are also driving the demand for gelatin in the region. According to the research report, “Middle East & Africa gelatine market Research Report, 2028," published by Actual Market Research, the market is anticipated to grow at a rate of 6.39% CAGR by 2023–28. Gelatine demand is increasing along with consumer demand for natural and organic personal care products. Gelatine is also used in a variety of food products in Africa. Gelatine, for example, is used in the production of Mahlabiyya, a traditional milk-based dessert in Egypt. Gelatine is used in the production of M'Hanncha, a pastry filled with almond paste in Morocco. Gelatine is also used to make capsules in the pharmaceutical industry and in the manufacture of some cosmetics. Gelatine is becoming increasingly popular as a protein source in the Middle East and Africa, particularly among fitness and bodybuilding enthusiasts. Based on the country, the market is segmented into the South Africa, Saudi Arabia, and rest of Middle East & Africa. Among them, the South Africa leads the market with a market share of more than 45% in 2022. The gelatin industry is constantly changing, with new technologies and innovations being developed to improve the manufacturing process and gelatin quality. Several technological trends in the Middle East and Africa's gelatin industry have emerged in recent years. Another trend is the discovery of new raw material sources for gelatin production. Gelatin has traditionally been made from animal byproducts such as bones and skin. However, there is growing interest in developing alternative gelatin sources, such as plant-based sources or microbial fermentation, which may offer advantages in terms of sustainability, cost, and ethics. Furthermore, gelatin is increasingly being used in the pharmaceutical and Nutraceuticals industries, where it is used in the production of capsules and supplements. To meet the strict regulatory requirements of these industries, new technologies for gelatin purification and processing have been developed. According to the sources, which include bovine, porcine, poultry, and others. Bovine and porcine are the two primary sources of gelatin used in the Middle East & Africa region. Bovine gelatin is obtained from the bones and hides of cattle, while porcine gelatin is obtained from the skin and bones of pigs. Poultry-based gelatin is also available, but it is not as widely used in the region. Plant-based gelatin alternatives, such as agar-agar, carrageenan, and pectin, are also available and are becoming increasingly popular in the region. These alternatives are particularly popular among consumers who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet. In terms of market share, bovine and porcine gelatin dominates the Middle East & Africa region due to their widespread availability and lower cost compared to plant-based alternatives. However, the demand for plant-based alternatives is expected to grow in the future due to increasing consumer awareness about the health and environmental benefits of plant-based products. Based on Types of gelatin Type A and Type B used in Middle East & Africa. Both Type A and Type B gelatin are commonly used in the Middle East & Africa region, with their usage varying depending on the application and specific requirements of the product. Type A gelatin is derived from acid hydrolysis of animal collagen, typically from porcine or fish sources. It has a high isoelectric point, which makes it soluble in acidic solutions and forms a clear, firm gel. Type A gelatin is commonly used in the food industry for applications such as confectionery, desserts, and meat products. Type B gelatin, on the other hand, is derived from alkaline hydrolysis of animal collagen, typically from bovine sources. It has a low isoelectric point, which makes it soluble in alkaline solutions and forms a softer, more elastic gel. Type B gelatin is commonly used in the pharmaceutical industry for applications such as capsules, tablets, and coatings. In the Middle East & Africa region, the usage of Type A and Type B gelatin varies depending on the specific application and industry. However, in general, Type A gelatin is more commonly used in the food industry, while Type B gelatin is more commonly used in the pharmaceutical industry. In the Middle East & Africa region, where a large proportion of the population follows Islamic or Jewish dietary laws, there is a growing demand for gelatin that is certified as Halal or Kosher. Many gelatin manufacturers have obtained Halal and Kosher certification for their products to meet this demand. Most countries in the Middle East & Africa region have strict food safety regulations that apply to gelatin and other food ingredients. These regulations ensure that gelatin is safe for human consumption and is produced in a hygienic and controlled environment.
