Vaccine Market

The vaccines market is expected to reach USD 50.42 billion by 2023 from USD 36.45 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 6.7%. Factors such as rising prevalence of diseases, increasing government and nongovernment funding for vaccine development, and increasing company initiatives to enhance R&D are driving the vaccines market.

Vaccines are biological products used to enhance the immune response of a body to prevent diseases, such as cholera, typhoid, influenza, and hepatitis. Vaccines may contain weakened/killed microbes, toxins, or surface proteins for inducing immunity against specific diseases.

The vaccines market has been segmented, on the basis of technology, conjugate vaccines, inactivated and subunit vaccines, live attenuated vaccines, recombinant vaccines, and toxoid vaccines. The market for conjugate vaccine is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2023. The large share of this segment can primarily be attributed to the increasing government support and rising company investments for conjugate vaccine development.

The vaccines market in Asia is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Asia is the fastest-growing market for vaccines. Increasing investments by companies in emerging countries, such as India and China is contributing to the growth of the market.

Vaccine Market

Monovalent vaccines drive the growth of vaccines market

Monovalent Vaccines

A monovalent vaccine is designed to combat a single disease and therefore contains a single strain of an antigen. A number of monovalent vaccines for diseases, such as malaria, Ebola, and dengue are undergoing clinical trials for testing their safety and efficacy. The growing prevalence of these diseases across the globe is a major factor driving market growth.

Vaccine Market

Multivalent Vaccines

A multivalent vaccine is designed to immunize against several strains or microorganisms, and therefore contains two or more strains/serotypes of the same antigen. Several combined multivalent vaccines are available in the market to protect against DTP, polio, and hepatitis, among other diseases.

Critical questions the report answers:

  • Where will all these developments take the industry in the mid to long term?
  • What are new diseases areas which the vaccines companies are exploring?

Vaccine development is a capital-intensive procedure. The development process (from in vitro research to marketing) takes 10–15 years and an investment of USD 800 million–USD 1 billion. Moreover, as the success rate of vaccine development is very low, manufacturers find it challenging to obtain initial investments and manage operational costs.

Furthermore, the storage and distribution cost of vaccines is higher than any other pharmaceutical product, as it requires specialized equipment and monitoring devices. The lack of proper storage and distribution facilities can deteriorate vaccine quality. Thus, the high cost of vaccine development and storage restrains market growth.

Key players in the market include Astellas Pharma Inc. (Japan), CSL Limited (Australia), Emergent BioSolutions, Inc. (US), GlaxoSmithKline plc (UK), Johnson & Johnson (US), MedImmune, LLC (US), Merck & Co., Inc. (US), Pfizer, Inc. (US), Sanofi Pasteur (France), Serum Institute of India Pvt. Ltd. (India), Bavarian Nordic (Denmark), Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation (Japan), Daiichi Sankyo (Japan), Biological E (India), and Panacea Biotec (India). These players are increasingly undertaking mergers and acquisitions, and product launches to develop and introduce new products in the market.
