Also, these vaccines can be used for Pre-exposure Prophylaxis and Post-exposure Prophylaxis. This Vero cell vaccines are also safe and have high immunogenicity.
Application – Segment Analysis
Rabies is responsible for more than 59,000 deaths, every year. The heavy expenditure for treatment of rabies cases can be reduced by Pre-exposure Prophylaxis. This preventive vaccine is used by people who are at risk of being infected by rabies as their work exposes them to the virus. Those patients with bite or non-bite exposures are given Post-exposure Prophylaxis to control and treat the infection after it has affected the body. Rabies immunoglobulin is given post exposure to neutralize rabies at the wound site, and is then followed by vaccination. Post-exposure Prophylaxis is projected to be growing at a CAGR of 4.7%. The post-exposure treatment has also considerably reduced the number of rabies related deaths, even though cases of rabies are high.
Geography – Segment Analysis
North America occupies the largest share by geography, in Rabies Vaccine Market. This is because, the number of deaths attributed to rabies have declined over the past few years. This reduction is due to animal vaccination programs and development of human rabies vaccines by these nations. Government support and establishment of a number of pharmaceutical companies in these regions, also contributes to the rabies vaccine market. North America has a well-established healthcare infrastructure and higher awareness among the people as well as healthcare professionals, which further make the rabies vaccine market dominant.
Drivers – Rabies Vaccine Market
- Increased government initiatives
With the rise in number of deaths due to rabies, government has increased their efforts to prevent its spreading. The government has educated people and also taken measures to vaccinate animals, thus having reduced the number of rabies cases. This has driven the need for rabies vaccines and hence the rabies vaccines market.
- Increase in the adoption of strays as pets
The increase in adoption of stray animals has also contributed to the rabies vaccine market. As people are well educated about the cause of rabies and its prevention, they have started vaccinating their pets. Adoption of pets has increased which requires more vaccination to be done for adopted pets. Canine vaccines contained a preservative, thimerosal, which was a derivative of mercury. It was harmful to pets and humans. So now most vaccines are devoid of thimerosal. Hence thimerosal or mercury-free vaccines have more potential to grow in demand.
Challenges – Rabies Vaccine Market
- Fewer regulations in low income countries
Lower income countries have less resources to regulate the virus. The animal control in such nations is very difficult owing to their huge population of stray animals. Also, people in such nations are not completely educated about the disease and its prevention. Some remote areas also lack supply of vaccines which restrain the market further.
