Hepatitis Vaccine Market: Restraints

A major factor hindering growth of the market is high cost of hepatitis vaccines. Several government and international organizations such as the WHO are focused on offering the hepatitis vaccine at affordable rates. Moreover, accessibility of these vaccines is still low in emerging regions of Asia Pacific and Africa, both with significant prevalence of hepatitis. These factors are expected to hinder growth of the market.

Hepatitis Vaccine Market: Opportunities

There is no vaccine for hepatitis C. Therefore, key players in the market can focus on developing vaccine for hepatitis C, which is the most common type of hepatitis after hepatitis B. Moreover, existing vaccines for hepatitis B are ineffective in adults and diabetic patients. Such scenarios offer lucrative growth opportunities for the market players.

Hepatitis Vaccine Market: Regional Analysis

North America is expected to account for the largest market share over the forecast period. This is attributed to increasing prevalence of hepatitis in the region. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), in 2016, a total of 2,967 new cases of acute hepatitis C were reported and a total of 41,200 persons were newly infected with hepatitis C in 2016 in the U.S.

The market in Asia Pacific is driven by high prevalence of hepatitis in the region. For instance, according to World Hepatitis Report, 2017, 154 million people in Asia Pacific were suffering from hepatitis B. Moreover, according to the WHO, 2% to 5% of general population is affected with chronic hepatitis in Asia Pacific. The market in Middle East & Africa is also driven by high prevalence of hepatitis B in the region.
