September 12, 2022 | Healthcare

The global influenza vaccine market size stood at USD 7.02 billion in 2021. The market value is slated to rise from USD 7.54 billion in 2022 to USD 13.58 billion by 2029 at a CAGR of 8.8% during 2022-2029. The surge can be attributed to an increase in government efforts toward encouraging early vaccinations for providing maximum protection during the flu season. This is further being supplemented by the growing demand for effective flu vaccines across various regions.

This information is provided by Fortune Business Insights™ in its research report, titled “Influenza Vaccine Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (Inactivated and Live Attenuated), By Valency (Quadrivalent and Trivalent), By Age Group (Pediatric and Adults), By Distribution Channel (Hospital & Retail Pharmacies, Government Suppliers, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029”.

Industry Expansion Favored During COVID-19 Pandemic Due to Growing Awareness Regarding the Risk of Getting Infected

The COVID-19 pandemic led to an increase in awareness regarding the risk of getting infected. This resulted in a rise in the uptake of flu vaccines. The health crisis further led to a surge in focus regarding the development of mRNA vaccines, combination vaccines, and others. The growing inclination toward the development of combination vaccines helped in ramping up production, given the reduction in manufacturing costs as well as time. These factors helped in elevating the production of influenza vaccines during the pandemic period.  

AstraZeneca Announced the Availability of FLUMIST QUADRIVALENT Doses in the U.S.

In August 2021, AstraZeneca disclosed the availability of FLUMIST QUADRIVALENT doses for the 2021-2022 influenza season in the U.S. The FDA-approved vaccine was indicated for individuals in the age group of 2 and 49.  

The nasal spray vaccine continued to be an option for flu vaccination in the country in alignment with the 2021-2022 recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).

Market Value to Rise Due to Increasing R&D Investments by Major Companies

Several industry players are depicting a keen interest in increasing their investments in research & development activities. The moves are being taken in a bid to focus on the launch of new vaccines and the introduction of new manufacturing facilities. Additional factors fueling the influenza vaccine market growth comprise the escalating government funding for driving the launch of therapeutically effective vaccines.

However, several countries have stretched timelines and a range of labeling requirements. This enhances the complexity of conducting clinical trials. An additional aspect hampering the industry growth is longer duration in conducting these trials.
