Live attenuated influenza vaccines segment dominates the market

For the prevention of influenza, several approved live attenuated influenza vaccines are available in the market. As several new product launches are expected during the forecast period, the global live attenuated influenza vaccines market is expected to witness a high growth considering the impressive number of molecules in Phase III clinical trials.

Americas: largest influenza vaccine market
Technavio researchers anticipate high growth for the global influenza vaccine market in the Americas due to the availability of 151 million to 166 million doses of injectable flu vaccine, as projected by vaccine manufacturers during 2017-18. The US witnessed a strong influenza season due to the well-established healthcare infrastructure, which contributed to the highest market share in the Americas. The well-defined surveillance system in the country to track the prevalence rate of influenza has further strengthened its strategies to use prophylaxis measure against it.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on vaccines, “During the forecast period, the influenza market in the Americas is expected to grow at a moderate pace. Improving awareness is one of the factors contributing to the market growth, which is indicated by the rise in self-reported flu vaccination. Adoption and demand for influenza vaccine is expected to increase in this region due to the rise in awareness rate.”
