Seasonal Influenza Vaccines Analysis & Forecast in Asia-Pacific Markets to 2028 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

February 3, 2020 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 3, 2020--

The “Seasonal Influenza Vaccines: Forecast in Asia-Pacific Markets to 2028” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.


Seasonal influenza is a viral infection that occurs annually in the winter months from December to March/April in the Northern Hemisphere and from May to August/September in the Southern Hemisphere, though most of India follows Southern Hemisphere seasonality. Two types of influenza virus, type A and B, are responsible for the majority of seasonal influenza infections in humans, and due to frequent virus mutations annual vaccination is recommended. The WHO estimates three to five million cases of severe seasonal influenza infections and 290,000 to 650,000 influenza-related respiratory deaths, most of them in the elderly population. Therefore, many countries recommend annual immunization against seasonal influenza, especially for high-risk groups such as young children, pregnant women, elderly people, and people with chronic diseases, but seasonal influenza is not on the national immunization schedule in China and India.

Immunization provides the best protection against the influenza virus and vaccines have been available for decades with a recent switch from trivalent to quadrivalent vaccines that protect against each two influenza type A and two B strains. Traditionally, seasonal influenza vaccines have been produced in eggs, but a slow manufacturing process and viral egg-adaptations have led to a push for cell-based and recombinant vaccine production methods in recent years.

During the 10-year forecast period, there are nine pipeline products that are on track to launch, driving a forecast growth in the 3GM from $914M in 2018 to $1.05B in 2028, which represents a CAGR of 1.4%.

The late stage pipeline for seasonal influenza vaccines in the 3GM includes the first quadrivalent seasonal influenza vaccines in China from Sinovac, Chongqing Zhifei, and Wuhan, as well as a quadrivalent formulation of Fluad. Quadrivalent live-attenuated vaccines will launch in India (from the Serum Institute) and Japan (AstraZeneca’s FluMist, licensed by Daiichi Sankyo). Furthermore, two new inactivated quadrivalent vaccines from Biken and Denka Seiken will launch during the forecast period, as well as a novel plant-based influenza vaccine in Japan.

Medicago’s MDG-2271 will be the first non-egg-based vaccine to launch in the 3GM, addressing the urgent unmet need of influenza vaccine efficacy by shortening production time and minimizing virus mutations.

Another major unmet need in the 3GM is a high vaccination rate and the lack of government support for seasonal influenza immunization in China and India, resulting in vaccination rates around 2%. Vaccination rates in Japan are projected to remain low due to vaccine hesitancy and skepticism.
