Meningococcal Vaccines Market Segment Overview

Meningococcal Vaccines Vaccine Type Insights

  • Conjugate

A conjugate vaccine is a type of subunit vaccine which combines a weak antigen with a strong antigen as a carrier so that the immune system has a stronger response to the weak antigen. This segment's growth in the meningococcal vaccines market is because of its key advantages, such as long-lasting immunity and its ability to induce herd immunity.

  • Subcapsular

The rise in prevalence of meningitis, increasing initiatives by government and regulatory authorities, and strong funding support from non-profit organizations are driving the growth of the meningococcal vaccines market in the subcapsular segment. In addition, increasing public health awareness initiatives to help prevent children, teens, and adolescents from getting infected by meningococcal disease point to an influx of opportunities for the market players.  The increasing adoption of MenB vaccines is further expected to increase demand for this segment.

  • Polysaccharide

Polysaccharide vaccines can be multivalent or monovalent depending on the presence of capsular meningococcal polysaccharides in the vaccine. These vaccines stimulate a B-cell immune response resulting in a serotype-specific antibody production by the immune system, thus providing efficient immunity. The surge in immunization programs, increasing research and development for vaccine technology, and growing healthcare spending drive the growth of polysaccharide vaccines in the meningococcal vaccines market.

Meningococcal Vaccines Serotype Insights

  • MenACWY

The meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY) protects against four types of meningococcal bacteria (types A, C, W, and Y). For instance, in May 2018, “Defeating meningitis by 2030” was introduced at the World Health Assembly by Eastern Mediterranean and African regions to develop a strategic roadmap for meningitis prevention by prioritizing areas for research and enhanced control activities has been zooming in the focus on new formulations, such as a fully liquid presentation of tetravalent vaccine for MenACWY and Menveo.

  • MenB/BC

The MenB vaccine is prepared from three major proteins found on the surface of most meningococcal bacteria, combined with the outer membrane of the 1 MenB strain. This vaccine protects against one of the most common types of meningococcal bacteria i.e., type B. CDC recommends routine MenB vaccination for people 10 years or older who are at high risk for meningococcal disease.

  • MenC

MenC vaccine gives protection against meningococcal disease (a major cause of meningitis) caused by group C Neisseria meningitidis bacteria. According to the National Meningitis Association (NMA), around 600–1,000 people in the U.S. get meningococcal disease each year, with 15% of those deaths due to a lack of awareness of the disease's symptoms. As a result, increased meningitis cases are expected to drive up demand for MenC vaccines.

  • MenAC

Meningococcal outbreaks in several countries have led to an upsurge in demand for meningococcal vaccines. The government is taking initiatives to replace the current meningitis C vaccine with new combination vaccines such as MenAC to combat rising deaths due to meningitis. For instance, in May 2019, the Ministry of Health of Ireland approved the MenAC vaccine for thousands of children and adults in Ireland due to rising cases of meningitis. Such initiatives are anticipated to boost the revenue of new meningococcal vaccines, which drives the market growth.

  • MenA

MenA vaccine gives protection against meningococcal disease (a major cause of meningitis) caused by meningococcus group A only. Healthcare professional training, patient information, support, and demand are driven by a significant increase in routine immunization. Companies indulging in the meningococcal vaccines market by forming strategic alliances and dominating the market, such as Serum Institute, offer Meningococcal A Conjugate Vaccine (Freeze-Dried).
