PharmaPoint: Seasonal Influenza Vaccines - Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2025
Influenza, often referred to as the flu, is an acute infection caused by one of the three closely related viruses, designated as influenza Type A, B, and C. The infections rapid onset and potential for high morbidity and mortality, particularly in high-risk patient populations such as the elderly and young children, make prompt and effective treatment with antiviral medication very difficult. For these reasons, prophylactic vaccination is the preferred intervention for seasonal influenza.
Today, available vaccines include the older egg-based, adjuvanted and non- adjuvanted inactivated vaccines, along with live-attenuated vaccines and newer, cell culture-based seasonal influenza vaccines. Within these four vaccine classes, continuous improvements in the formulation of vaccines has occurred over the years, with the market currently transitioning from trivalent to quadrivalent formulations, which offer protection against an additional B strain of the virus. The anticipated launch of quadrivalent, cell culture-based VLP vaccines will have the potential to revolutionize the approaches used to protect against seasonal influenza infections. GlobalData expects the global seasonal influenza vaccines market - which, for the purposes of this report, comprises the seven major pharmaceutical markets (7MM; US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan) - to grow moderately during the next decade at a CAGR of 3.3%, reaching total sales of $4.3 billion by 2025.
