Collagen – an exploding topic in CEE markets

Rising obesity and life expectancy are increasing joint health issue occurrence. As a result of poor dietary and exercise habits during the pandemic, many people are also looking to improve their skin health.

The demand for joint health supplements is growing. Worldwide consumers are increasingly recognizing the influence of skin health on their overall health. Europeans have named joint & muscle pain as one of their top health concerns for the next 10 years.

Unsurprisingly, the number of brands deciding to launch premium, clinically studied products, addressing these two popular segments, is increasing. The star ingredient of these products is collagen, which Frost & Sullivan named as “one of the top growth opportunities to watch”. We prepared a presentation with collected market data.
