PharmaPoint: Meningococcal Vaccines – Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022: Event-Driven Update has recently announced the addition of a market study “ PharmaPoint: Meningococcal Vaccines – Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022: Event-Driven Update, is a comparative analysis of the global market.

Meningococcal disease is an acute infection caused by the gram-negative bacterium Neisseria meningitidis. Its rapid onset and severity of symptoms makes prompt and effective diagnosis and treatment nearly impossible. For these reasons the meningococcal disease space is dominated by vaccines. Currently, tetravalent conjugate vaccines, such as Sanofis Menactra and Novartis Menveo, account for the vast majority of global sales, with the US adolescent market being the key target segment. GlobalData expects growth in the meningococcal vaccines market to be driven by the launch of serotype B vaccines, which address a critical unmet need in the treatment landscape, and an increase in the coverage rates of existing routine vaccination programs. Cost-effectiveness concerns, especially for serogroup B vaccines, will serve as a key barrier to market growth. Vaccines that better protect infants and/or provide a longer duration of immunity also have an opportunity to seize market share during 2012-2022.


Key Questions Answered

How large an impact will serotype B vaccines have on the meningococcal market? What do key opinion leaders think of these vaccines?

What are the key vaccines for each age segment and country?

Which meningococcal vaccines will face adoption challenges in the market? What is the projected uptake of new vaccines, such as Novartis Bexsero, over the forecast period?

The developmental pipeline consists of vaccines that address serotype B protection and immunogenicity in infants. Which of these vaccines will attain high sales revenues during 2012-2022 and in which markets?

What governmental and industry developments are likely to affect the vaccination rates in the markets researched? Which is the largest growth market globally?

Key Findings

Country-specific epidemiology and serotype distributions heavily influence immunization recommendations and vaccine usage.

The potential impact of serogroup B vaccines on the marketplace will be determined by their inclusion in routine vaccination programs.

Major players will leverage their R&D, manufacturing, and distribution networks to maintain their stakes in the market.

Government endorsements of new and existing vaccines, in particular serogroup B vaccines, are anticipated to dramatically influence market growth.
