Global Influenza Market - Vaccines and Therapeutics

15:17 EDT 19 Oct 2016 | PR Newswire

LONDON, Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The influenza virus has been implicated in infecting millions of individuals on an annual basis, with vaccination programs against seasonal influenza infections necessitating the manufacture of hundreds of million doses within a very short time period. The emergence of innovative production systems based on mammalian or insect cell cultures have resulted in surmount the hurdles associated with the egg-based production system. These industrially well-established production systems provide a faster and more flexible response to pandemic threats.

The existing range of influenza vaccines are produced in fertilized eggs, the embryo of which is infected in order that the virus can proliferate. Following a period of incubation, the virus is harvested and purified. This system of production is complicated and lacking in the event of a pandemic due to the possibility of generating low yields, not being amenable to rapid scale-up and being dependent on the availability of eggs. Global authorities have acknowledged problems associated with manufacturing vaccines based on eggs, resulting in creating a need for developing alternative vaccine production systems. The current scenario has been focusing on the development of manufacturing systems based on plants, bacteria, yeast and cell cultures.

Worldwide market for Influenza Vaccines is analyzed in both volumes in doses and value in USD for the period from 2012 through to 2022. The market for influenza therapeutics is analyzed in terms of value only at a global level. The global market for overall influenza is estimated to be US$6.1 billion in 2016 and anticipated to reach US$10.2 billion by 2022, witnessing a robust 8.5% CAGR between 2016 and 2022.
