Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine’s Popularity in Developing Countries to Keep Segment in the Lead

According to the World Health Organization, vaccination for pneumococcal diseases is carried out across 42 countries, including the most populated ones such as India and China. These diseases continue to be the key cause of mortality amongst children and adults. The most commonly seen form of pneumococcal diseases are pneumonia and meningitis. Efforts to reduce the pressure on healthcare systems and improve life spans is expected to retain pneumococcal conjugate vaccine’s (PCV) status as indispensable across immunization program. These factors are estimated to keep the segment in the lead during the forecast period.

COVID-19 becomes Turning Point for Asia Pacific to Attain Leadership in Global Vaccines Market

Fairfield Market Research indicates that the Asia Pacific vaccines market is paving the way as developing economies have immunization programs that developed countries do not have. Vaccination strategies in developing countries are primarily meant for public health intervention to contain the spread of diseases such as polio, measles, meningitis, and others. Furthermore, as most of the countries in Asia Pacific are under The Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations (GAVI), the regional market is expected to lead in the forthcoming years.

In addition, India’s leadership in COVID-19 vaccine production and distribution is also expected to contribute to the regional market. With two top contenders based in India, Serum Institute of India Pvt. Ltd. and Bharat Biotech are expected to be the biggest providers of national immunization for their own citizens and cater to the world’s vaccine need. Thus, Fairfield Market Research anticipates that the pandemic will tip the balance in favour of Asia Pacific vaccines market throughout the forecast period.

Difficult to Crack Barrier to Entry Prevents Competition in Vaccines Market

Ltd., Bharat Biotech, Sanofi, and GlaxoSmithKline plc. manufacture 60% of the vaccines.
