The internal membrane of an eggshell is known as the eggshell membrane. It features two-layered reticulated structures and is mostly made up of protein. The exterior is rough, yet the interior is tightly built. Eggshell membrane is made commercially from eggshells that have been industrially processed. Separating the membrane from the shell can be done in a variety of ways, including chemical, mechanical, steam, and vacuum processes. An eggshell's membrane is mostly made up of fibrous proteins like collagen. In addition, dermatan sulfated, chondroitin sulphated, and sulfated glycoproteins containing hexosamines such as glucosamine and eggshell membranes also contain glycosaminoglycans. Multiple scientific studies have demonstrated the egg membrane's efficacy as a dietary supplement ingredient in diverse areas, including bones, tendons, joint health, skin, hair, and nails. Due to the growing concern for environmental protection, several food businesses that use egg whites and yolks are projected to start using eggshell waste to produce eggshell membranes, fertilisers, and other commodities in order to make a profit.
The North America eggshell membrane market size is expected to reach a valuation of USD 67.02 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 9.30 % during the forecast period (2022–2030). The region has a huge population with high levels of obesity due to eating habits, high disposable income, and access to a variety of processed and ready-to-eat goods. Lifestyle-related disorders such as atherosclerosis, rapid bone degradation, and heart disease have been linked to changes in lifestyle, such as the use of packaged foods, sedentary work habits, and disrupted sleep cycles. In North America, this is likely to increase demand for preventive care items such as pharmaceuticals and nutritional supplements like eggshell membrane.
The North America eggshell membrane market is divided into two types: hydrolysed and unhydrolyzed eggshell membranes.
By 2030, the hydrolysed eggshell membrane is predicted to have the greatest market share of USD 272 million, with a CAGR of 9.8%. The hydrolysed eggshell membrane contains a number of bioactive chemicals that have a positive impact on hair, skin, and nail appearance and physiology. The membranes of the eggshell have a higher concentration of hyaluronan. The synovial fluid that surrounds joints works as a joint shock absorber and lubricant, and hyaluronan is similar to that fluid. Hyaluronan is used as a therapy for arthritis and osteoarthritis-related knee pain. Joint-related disorders can be effectively treated using eggshell membrane, eggshell membrane extracts, and other products.
Eggshell membranes that have been hydrolysed include various amino acids in addition to GAGs. Oral supplementation with hydrolysed eggshell membranes has been shown to have physiological effects on the GAGs (glycosaminoglycans) found in hair on the scalp and hair shafts within the follicle. As a result of this action, eggshell membrane has become a popular element in personal care and hair cosmetics. Hydrolysed eggshell membranes can be employed to positively alter nutrient levels as they diminish with age. The favourable effects of eggshell membrane hydrolysates on hair, skin, and joints are expected to contribute to the segment's growth over the forecast period as awareness and demand for the product grows.
The North America eggshell membrane market is divided into pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, personal care and cosmetics, food and beverages, and others, based on application.
During the projected period, the food and beverage industry is expected to command a share of USD 69 million, with a CAGR of 9%. Because it is readily available and rich in calcium sources, eggshell membrane is commonly employed in functional meals and beverages. In addition, the food and beverage industry's use of eggshell membranes was hastened by the demand for clean label components.
The rising frequency of different ailments linked to a sedentary lifestyle, particularly among the 30-to-40-year-old age group, as well as shifting dietary habits, are expected to raise market awareness of the importance of eggshell membrane products in the next years. In terms of sales, the functional foods segment accounts for a major percentage of the food and beverage market. The rising understanding of the relationship between exercise and maintaining a balanced and nutrient-rich diet, as well as increased awareness of the necessity of leading a healthy and active lifestyle, are driving demand for protein-fortified eggshell membrane food and beverage products.
By 2030, the North America eggshell membrane market is estimated to be worth USD 67.02 million, growing at a CAGR of 9.30 percent over the forecast period (2022–2030). Due to eating habits, high disposable money, and access to a range of processed and ready-to-eat foods, the region has a large population with high levels of obesity. Changes in lifestyle, such as the usage of packaged foods, sedentary work habits, and disrupted sleep cycles, have been linked to lifestyle-related illnesses such as atherosclerosis, rapid bone degradation, and heart disease. This is projected to boost demand for preventive care items like medications and nutritional supplements like eggshell membrane in North America.
The market of eggshell membrane in the United States is rapidly expanding. It's because of the rising number of cases of arthritis among the elderly, as well as the massive amount of eggshell membrane produced each year. Regional expansion will also be fuelled by ongoing research and development on the bio-resource food supplement. Furthermore, factors such as high per capita income, rising health concerns, and supportive government regulation are expected to propel regional market expansion during the projection period. Furthermore, technological improvements in the eggshell membrane industry, as well as the existence of important players in the market, will boost the market's growth. Due to its nutritious importance in the food and beverage industry, the United States is one of the key countries controlling the production of eggshell membrane. Furthermore, due to rapid developments in the region's pharmaceutical sector, the country is expected to have a significant part of the eggshell membrane market.
A new pain claim for Stratum Nutrition's NEM brand eggshell membrane was just approved by Health Canada. "NEM helps offer relief from joint pain due to moderate intensity aerobic exercise as soon as the first day," the claim states and this has significantly increased the popularity for eggshell membrane in the region. The fact that a pain claim was approved after only one day of use is a tribute to the research that Stratum and ESM Technologies have put behind NEM. This approval is the result of more than five years of meticulous investigation."
