Industry Insights

The global cholera vaccines market size was estimated at USD 63.1 million in 2017 and will exhibit a CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period. High disease incidence rate and increasing need for its prevention are some of the key factors expected to boost the market.

The WHO Global Task Force on Cholera Control (GTFCC) aims to reduce the incidence of deaths resulting from the disease by 90.0% with the help of a strategy titled “Ending Cholera: A Global Roadmap to 2030”. With the help of GTFCC, oral cholera vaccines (OCV) are made available all over the world to ensure immunization, especially in cholera-prone areas of Africa and Asia. The Multi-Sectoral Cholera Prevention and Control Plan (MCPCP) for 2011 to 2016 was implemented in Kenya in partnership with UNICEF to prevent the disease. Moreover, in December 2012, the United Nations announced an initiative in Haiti and the Dominican Republic to eliminate the disease.

Europe cholera vaccines market

The worldwide coverage of immunization is steadily rising. A survey conducted by WHO in 2014 estimated that about 3,175, 206 doses of Dukoral and Shanchol were deployed in vaccination campaigns around the world between 1997 and 2014. In affected areas, larger number of doses were utilized; vaccines are still, however, underused considering the fact that 1.4 billion people are at risk. According to WHO, the global supply of OCV was pegged at an estimated 6 million in 2016, thanks to the addition of a prequalified vaccine producer.

According to an article published by WHO in 2017, each year 1.3 to 4.0 million cases of cholera are reported and 21,000 to 143,000 deaths occur globally. In 2015, 172,454 cases were reported and 1304 deaths occurred due to cholera across 42 countries. Lack of clean water and proper sanitation increases the risk of people developing the disease. Almost 2.4 billion people lack adequate facilities of sanitation and 1.8 billion people in the world drink water contaminated with feces, which carries cholera bacterium. Thus, increasing risk factors are sure to support the demand for vaccination against the disease, aiding market growth.

Product Insights

Based on product, the cholera vaccines market is categorized into Dukoral, Shanchol, and Vaxchora. The Dukoral vaccine dominated the overall market in terms of revenue in 2017 owing to the established stockpile of this OCV by WHO. It is the only vaccine that provides protection against diarrhea caused by heat-labile-toxin-producing E. coli.

The Vaxchora vaccine is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period due to its advantages such as single dose immunization and reduced adverse effects. In June 2016, FDA approved a single-dose live attenuated OCV, Vaxchora, indicated for use in adults between the age of 18 and 64. According to the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, in the immunogenicity trials of Vaxchora carried out in Australia and the U.S., 90% of adults vaccinated developed antibodies, which provide immunity against the disease.

Regional Insights

Europe and Asia Pacific spearheaded the market by contributing to over 55.0% of the overall revenue in 2017. Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017, followed by Europe. Key factors contributing toward the APAC’s dominance are increasing incidence of cholera and growing importance of immunization. The launch of Shanchol, an OCV, in 2009 resulted in an increase in demand for immunization in the region.

Global cholera vaccines market

North America is expected to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period due to the introduction of the first and only OCV, Vaxchora, in the U.S. Furthermore, the number of people traveling to countries with sudden outbreaks of cholera is increasing and demand for immunization is growing. North America is projected to record a significant CAGR of over 13.0% over the forecast period.

Cholera Vaccines Market Share Insights

Some of the key players dominating the market are Shantha Biotechnics Private Limited; PaxVax, Inc.; and Valneva SE. Key players focus on development of their product portfolio and mergers and acquisitions to gain a strong foothold in the market. For instance, Valneva SE acquired Crucell Sweden AB and all privileges, assets, and licenses associated with Dukoral, a vaccine that prevents cholera, to strengthen its product portfolio.
