The Asian vaccine market is relatively small compared to its population, yet it is growing, and pharmaceutical manufacturers increasingly will look to boost sales from these emerging vaccine markets. The population of nearly 4 billion people throughout Asia accounts for more than half of the global population, yet currently it is Western markets which lead vaccine sales. This hasn’t stopped companies from investing in Asian vaccine markets.
The graying of the population in Asia and the growth in some regions such as India and China are primary indicators of the potential for vaccine markets. This has encouraged market participants to increase spending in research and development and distribution facilities in Asian countries. This report examines the market for vaccines used in humans for various types of disease. It covers only commercialized vaccines and developmental vaccines for diseases that are already vaccine-preventable; it does not cover emerging vaccines for diseases that are not currently vaccine-preventable.

Key issues in the global vaccine market today include product safety, refusal to immunize, supply shortages, the use of vaccines to prevent pandemics and address bioterrorism, and innovations in vaccine delivery systems. Vaccination has played an enormous role in the prevention of disease, having had the greatest impact on human health of any medical intervention. As a result, vaccine-preventable diseases and their resulting deaths are now rare in the developed world. However, developing nations have not benefited as much from the introduction of vaccines. Additionally, other issues such as vaccine safety, shortages and bioterrorism continue to weigh upon the industry.
The following companies are profiled in this report:
- Bavarian Nordic A/S
- Baxter International
- Emergent Biosolutions
- Pfizer Inc
- Sanofi Pasteur
- Sinovac Biotech, Ltd
