Bovine segment is capturing the largest market share in the forecast period

Based on source of gelatin, the gelatin polypeptide plasma expander market is segmented into bovine and porcine. Most of the commercialized gelatin polypeptide plasma expanders use bovine as a source of raw material, which makes it the largest revenue generator. Bovine derived gelatin is categorized into type B gelatin, extracted by alkaline process. Alkaline process of extraction is effective and reduces chances of interference with other ingredients, which makes it most preferred choice in plasma expanders. Bovine is majorly used as a raw material in most of the gelatin plasma expanders including Geloplasma, Gelofusine, and Haemaccel.
