Market Overview

The Europe eggshell membrane market size is expected to reach a valuation of USD 68.48 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 9.95 % during the forecast period (2022–2030).

The eggshell membrane is the inside membrane of an eggshell. It is largely made up of protein and has two-layered reticulated structures. Although the exterior is rustic, the interior is well-constructed. Eggshell membrane is a commercial product created from industrially processed eggshells. Chemical, mechanical, steam, and vacuum techniques are all viable options for separating the membrane from the shell. The membrane of an eggshell is largely made up of fibrous proteins such as collagen. Glycosaminoglycans can also be found in sulfated dermatan, chondroitin sulfated, and sulfated glycoproteins containing hexosamines like glucosamine, as well as eggshell membranes. The efficacy of egg membrane as a dietary supplement element in a variety of areas, including bones, tendons, joint health, skin, hair, and nails, has been established in multiple scientific investigations. In order to earn a profit, some food enterprises that employ egg whites and yolks are expected to start using eggshell waste to generate eggshell membranes, fertilisers, and other commodities due to rising environmental concerns.

 In the worldwide eggshell membrane market, Europe is expected to become a major player. Factors such as the region's growing senior population would bolster regional market growth. Furthermore, the growing demand for healthy and nutritious food items by consumers is expected to drive the eggshell membrane market in this region to new heights.

Market Dynamics

Market Drivers

  • Additional benefits like skincare: Eggshell membrane increases the skin barrier function, which means that the inner layers of the skin are better protected from external harmful agents (pollution, UV radiation, microbiological agents, etc.) and that the loss of moisture of these inner layers is more difficult. This enhancement in the bidirectional shield suggests a more turgid, supple, and luminous skin appearance, but most importantly, a lot healthier and younger skin, which is an added benefit, and thus in Europe, it is a crucial driver in the market's growth.
  • Improves Knee osteoarthritis: A group of 166 patients with arthritic knee pain for one to five years participated in a recent study. A placebo was provided to some of the participants, while others were given eggshell membrane. The research lasted three months. Those who took the eggshell membrane noticed a 24% reduction in stiffness and a 22% reduction in discomfort after just seven days. And, unlike the placebo group, their condition improved with time. They reported 33 percent and 35 percent reductions in pain and stiffness after 30 days, respectively. Those who took eggshell membrane experienced a 50% reduction in pain and stiffness after 90 days and this can further drive the market towards growth in

Market Restraints

  • Availability of Substitutes like plant-based protein: Protein is a nutrient that has been trending increasingly positive in the minds of consumers, with demand rising for both plant and animal sources of protein. Plant-based protein supplements are gaining popularity with the rising trend of veganism as well as growing awareness regarding environmental and ethical concerns. Plant-based protein supplements are mostly sourced from soy, wheat, and pea plants and this is a significant restraint in the eggshell membrane market's growth.

Market Opportunities

  • Zero-waste initiatives: Eggshells are classified as hazardous waste by the European Union, which encourages egg-using industries to value the by-product through vertical integration. In the wake of the zero-waste initiative, food companies consider selling eggshells to manufacturers, whereas the circular economy strategy encourages the use of by-products in another value chain. Due to its nutrient-rich properties, the market for the eggshell membrane is anticipated to expand over the forecast period as health consciousness and the demand for food supplements with clean labels continue to rise. The European Union, for example, has launched the 'Zero Waste' programme, which promotes waste prevention through a variety of methods, including eliminating leftover garbage and waste separation at the source.

Segmental Analysis

There are two varieties of eggshell membranes on the market in Europe: hydrolyzed and unhydrolyzed eggshell membranes.

With a CAGR of 9.8%, the hydrolyzed eggshell membrane is expected to hold the largest market share of USD 272 million by 2030. The hydrolyzed eggshell membrane contains a number of bioactive compounds that improve the appearance and physiology of hair, skin, and nails. The eggshell membranes have a larger proportion of hyaluronan. Hyaluronan is similar to the synovial fluid that surrounds joints and acts as a joint shock absorber and lubricant. Hyaluronan is a kind of hyaluronan that is used to treat arthritis and osteoarthritis-related knee discomfort. Eggshell membrane, eggshell membrane extracts, and other items can successfully cure joint-related illnesses.

In addition to GAGs, hydrolyzed eggshell membranes contain a variety of amino acids. GAGs (glycosaminoglycans) present in hair on the scalp and hair shafts within the follicle have been demonstrated to respond to oral supplementation with hydrolyzed eggshell membranes. Eggshell membrane has become a common ingredient in personal care and hair cosmetics as a result of this activity. The use of hydrolyzed eggshell membranes can help to improve nutritional levels as they decline with age. As awareness and demand for the product rises, the beneficial effects of eggshell membrane hydrolysates on hair, skin, and joints are likely to contribute to the segment's expansion over the forecast period.

According to application, the Europe eggshell membrane market is segmented into pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, personal care and cosmetics, food and beverages, and others.

The food and beverage business are estimated to command a share of USD 69 million over the forecast period, with a CAGR of 9%. Eggshell membrane is often used in functional meals and beverages since it is readily available and high in calcium sources. In addition, the requirement for clean label components has accelerated the usage of eggshell membranes in the food and beverage industry.

In the coming years, the increased prevalence of various ailments connected to a sedentary lifestyle, especially among the 30-to-40-year-old age group, as well as changed dietary patterns, are projected to raise market awareness of the value of eggshell membrane products. The functional foods segment accounts for a significant portion of the food and beverage market in terms of sales. Increased awareness of the need of leading a healthy and active lifestyle, as well as a growing understanding of the relationship between exercise and keeping a balanced and nutrient-rich diet, are driving demand for protein-fortified eggshell membrane food and beverage products.

Regional Analysis

By 2030, the Europe eggshell membrane market is estimated to be worth USD 68.48 million, growing at a CAGR of 9.95% over the forecast period (2022–2030). Europe is likely to become a prominent player in the global eggshell membrane market. Regional market growth would be aided by factors such as the region's expanding senior population. In addition, rising consumer demand for healthy and nutritious foods is likely to propel the eggshell membrane market in this region to new heights.

The market for eggshell membrane will see an increase in demand in prominent countries such as Germany and the United Kingdom. It is attributable to the population's expanding spending power, as well as the population's growing health concerns. All of these characteristics would allow the market to expand in new directions. The increased prevalence of various ailments among the elderly population would further boost demand for eggshell membranes. Furthermore, the EFSA's recognition of eggshell membrane as a new food has aided its market expansion in the region.

The consumption of food and beverages in France is estimated to be over 180 billion euros, representing a significant share of the French consumer's pocketbook. Quality standards are rigorous, yet because of the different ethnic backgrounds of the people who live in France, virtually any product can find a market. As France's food and beverage industry are developing, demand for eggshell membranes is likely to rise.

Osteoarthritis is the most frequent joint condition in Germany. Degenerative processes in the joints cause the condition, which start with the slow loss of joint cartilage and can culminate to the full exposure of bone surfaces. The demand for these Eggshell Membranes is expected to rise in Germany in the coming years as the prevalence of Osteoarthritis rises.
