The latest market trends, including mergers/joint ventures, market penetration of large companies in the ever-growing developing markets, research, changing consumer preferences, health and safety awareness and immunization coverage campaigns are driving the vaccine market. These trends are opening up diverse opportunities for manufacturers and scientists to develop innovative and affordable products. This study summarizes these factors for both the human and animal vaccine industries.
CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE STUDY AND FOR WHOM
This study emphasizes the necessity of vaccines in ensuring the health of both humans and animals. For human vaccines, the focus is on the developing countries where access to vaccines is badly needed. For animals, vaccination is a health safety requirement to ensure the health of animals and to avoid the transference of diseases from animals to humans, for both food producing animals and companion animals. The study offers an overview of the vaccine industry for market participants such as manufacturers, researchers and non-governmental organizations.
SCOPE OF THE STUDY
The report studies the various factors impacting the global market for human and animal vaccines. BCC conducted a market evaluation for vaccine types/categories for humans and animals, including their respective regional sales, applications, regulatory aspects, market forecasts, prospects, innovation and challenges, patent analyses, clinical trials, market leaders and market shares of vaccine sales.
The data gathered is for the global markets and statistically validated for the current and forecasted values. Similar techniques were applied for regional data measurements and sales in the respective regions studied. Product details and scientific techniques/platforms are provided based on their commercial and industrial viability.
The emerging markets for orphan drugs include India, China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Canada, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
BCC employed both primary as well as secondary research methodologies to gather relevant information on the vaccine industry. In order to do that, BCC interviewed industry veterans, including scientists, manufacturers and others as well as conducted relevant searches, including pharmaceutical and vaccine related newsletters, blogs, papers, journals, technical blogs, digests, news feeds, technical articles, company white papers, research papers and other sources. Market projections reflect estimated unit prices, vaccine usage and potential immunization coverage, the present market economy, future application of vaccines and market direction and trends.
BCC researched companies associated with the vaccine industry to acquire data for this study. These companies were mostly manufacturers and end users of vaccines for both humans and animals. BCC contacted industry representatives of vaccine companies, scientists and research teams to gain better insight into the prospects and development of the industry.
In addition, BCC consulted scientific papers, research papers and articles, science journal, medical and pharmaceutical papers and journals, company white papers, financial reports, newsletters, company literature, medical and pharmaceutical blogs, product literature, technical articles, periodicals, bulletins, abstracts, regulations, patent files, etc. Pharmaceutical and medical related database searches were also key contributors for the research work.
