Report Overview

The global vaccine storage and packaging market size was valued at USD 20.3 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.0% from 2020 to 2027. Increasing investment in research and development of vaccines by the healthcare institutions and biopharmaceutical companies and rising government investment on immunization programs are anticipated to drive the market over the forecast period. For instance, the U.S. government supports several public agencies and programs involved in vaccine-related activities. Each year, the U.S. government spends hundreds of millions of dollars on research and development of vaccines to purchase and distribute vaccines to the states, ensure the safety of existing vaccines, and conduct educational and other outreach activities to encourage vaccine use. Furthermore, with the Covid-19 pandemic, the necessity for vaccine storage and transport is expected to be extremely high in 2021.

The U.S. vaccine storage and packaging market size

In addition, lack of in-house storage and packaging capabilities, expertise, and budget constraints faced by biopharmaceutical companies, government institutions, and academic institutions are anticipated to propel the growth of this market. Moreover, steadily rising global immunization coverage is driving the vaccine storage equipment market. For instance, according to WHO the estimated global vaccination coverage of Diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP3) was about 86.0% in 2018.

The market is anticipated to be driven by technological advancements such as SDD refrigerators and RFIDs in the industry. Most of the leading companies have made significant investments in R&D to address the unmet medical needs in the storage and packaging of vaccines in health care facilities. Moreover, rising awareness about early disease diagnosis and prevention and increasing incidence of infectious diseases has stimulated demand for protective vaccines, hence further driving the vaccine storage and packaging market.

Function Insights

The storage segment held the largest revenue share of 58.8% in 2019 owing to the increasing demand for vaccine storage equipment and services in the industry. The storage segment is further segmented into storage equipment and services. The services segment is anticipated to dominate the market over the forecast period as most of the biopharmaceutical companies hire third parties for warehouse storage and transportation services.

Based on packaging material, the vaccine packaging market is segmented into vaccine bags, vials, ampoules, corrugated boxes, and others. The vaccine bags, vials, ampoules segment is anticipated to dominate the market in 2019 owing to higher compatibility with the sensitive material. Furthermore, based on the packaging level the vaccine packaging market is segmented into the primary, secondary, and tertiary segments. The primary segment is anticipated to dominate the market in 2019 and also expected to register a higher CAGR over the forecast period owing to the higher cost of the design and development of the primary packaging in the industry.

Regional Insights

Europe dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of 42.6% in 2019. Rising awareness about vaccination programs among people, increasing research on vaccines, rising prevalence of infectious diseases, and the presence of a large number of logistic providers with years of expertise in the region are the major factors driving the market in the region.

Global vaccine storage & packaging market share

However, MEA is expected to register a higher CAGR over the forecast period owing to rising government investments in the healthcare infrastructure in the region. The rising focus of prominent players on the market for vaccine storage and packaging in MEA is also expected to drive growth. In addition, South Africa and Saudi Arabia offer several opportunities for market players. Also, the immunization programs in South Africa, are expected to largely contribute towards revenue generation over the next seven years. Increasing communicable diseases is also the main driver for this market in the region.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

To sustain in the highly competitive environment and to improve market share, the key companies are adopting expansion and mergers and acquisitions as key business strategies. Currently, the industry is highly fragmented and maybe slightly more consolidated by the end of the forecast period owing to the former strategy.
