One or more doses of the vaccine typically protect against the diseases for a few years, decades, or maybe even for a lifetime. There is mostly two influenza vaccine type which is widely available in the market, these are inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV) and live attenuated influenza vaccines (LAIV). These vaccines are made to protect against three seasonal viruses. Influenza viruses are a threat to the human population, under the major public health estimation; vaccinations are the ultimate prevention from the disease.


The influenza vaccine market size is estimated to reach nearly $6.20 Billion by the end of 2026; it was estimated at nearly $3.96 Billion in the year 2018, with an increasing annual growth rate of 5.9% (CAGR) in between 2019 to 2026.

There is a rise in the demand for vaccines globally because of the effectiveness of the doses against the disease or infection. There was a report issued at the starting of the year 2020 by Pfizer. Inc that there were no disturbances accrued in the supply chain of these vaccines in fact the emission of covid 19 vaccines has raised the potential value of the influenza vaccine market.


According to the researchers of Brazil, these vaccine shots can help to reduce the death rates by 20 % before the inception of the covid vaccine and it can reduce about 27 % after the inception of the covid vaccine. Thus the analyst believes that these factors can toss the demand for this influenza vaccine.


Market Dynamic:



  •         Drivers


The influenza vaccine market has increased tremendously over the past few years. There is a number of factors influencing the raised market value including the increase of the awareness of the disease among the people, funding, and the fear of influenza pandemic.

  •         Opportunities


The government has taken the initiative to sure the well-being of the population by minimizing the side effects of the influenza vaccines. The development of new vaccines and the improvement of the existing or current vaccines are the major causes for the rise of the influenza vaccine market.


Along with that, the rise in the population, investment, and funding by different companies are also directly linked with the expansion of the influenza vaccine market growth.  



  •         Restraints


69,009 people were diagnosed in the year 2018 with the influenza virus. Among which 67,733 people have diagnosed with influenza A virus and the rest of them were diagnoses with influenza B virus. In the United States, the cases of influenza have increased from 9.2 Million cases to 49.0 million cases of infection in 2010.


The inactivated influenza vaccines (IIV) are appropriate for younger people, most probably for kids of 6 months or above. The recombinant influenza vaccine is only acceptable for adults or people aged 18 years or more. The adjuvant vaccines contain the highest doses, hence approved for older people or people aged 65 years or more.   



  •         Challenges


The influenza market is facing a number of challenges due to Covid 19 and several other seasons.  There is a specific period of time in which the seasonal vaccines should be produced and shipped; the approx time frame is of 6 months. The delays in the manufacturing of the vaccines can mislay market shares and the revenue.


The demands of the vaccine vary according to the season, weather, and timing which affect the growth in the market. The availability of influenza vaccines during the unpredictable period is the major provocation in the market. The awareness among the public is another one.



  •         Cumulative Growth Analysis


The global influenza market expected to reach up to USD 7,321.79 Million in 2025 from USD 5,563.37 Million USD in 2019 with an annual growth rate of 4.86%.


The growth on the demand depends upon the four major segments that include influenza type, technology, manufacturing, and end user. Thereafter, the market growth can get affected by a pandemic or calamitous conditions or natural disaster.  


Value Chain Analysis:
There are four segments of the influenza market that are typically based on the different influenza type, vaccine type, manufacturing technology, and end user. On the basis of the type the influenza vaccines have been bifurcated into zoonitic and seasonal. On the other hand, on the basis of manufacturing technology, the vaccine has been categorized into egg-based, cell-culture based, recombinant based. According to the type of vaccine, it is bifurcated into trivalent vaccine and quadrivalent vaccine. The end-users of the global influenza market can be research organizations, academic institutions, hospitals, and others.


The form of the dosage can be nasal spray, intramuscular injection and intradermal. The report contains the market trends related with each segment and affects of the segments on the overall growth of the global influenza vaccines market.   


Segmentation Overview:
On the basis of the end users and application the global influenza vaccines market can be categorized. According to the different products, there are two different types of vaccines; one is trivalent vaccine and quadrivalent vaccines.



  •         By Application


On the application basis, the vaccines are segmented into two types, one is trivalent vaccine which is for the kids of 6 months or above and the other one is recombinant influenza vaccine, which is for the adults or for the aged people.  


Hence, the effects of the virus changes slightly every year, that makes the vaccines of previous year less effective or ineffective. This is the major cause of the fluctuation in the global vaccine market. 



  •         By End-Users


On the basis on the End-user segmentation, the global influenza vaccination is modified by different sectors including academic institutes, clinics and hospitals, researchers and organizations, and others. 


There are chance is highest growth in the research sector during the projected period. The reason for that is the nature of the virus which is changing every year and accordingly the vaccines needs up gradation after every 6 months to 1 year.
