Human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines are used to protect against HPV infections. They are sexually transmitted through skin and mucous of the infected person. Sexually transmitted HPV infection can be categorized as low-risk HPVs and high-risk HPVs. Low-risk HPV causes skin warts around genitals, anus, mouth, or throat, and could lead to respiratory papillomatosis; whereas, high-risk HPV causes cancer such as cervical, anal, oropharyngeal cancers, and other rarer cancers. In the U.S., the incidence of genital HPV infections is approximately 14 million per year. HPV vaccination is used to prevent and reduce the risk of HPV infection. Increasing incidence of HPV is the major driving factor of the world HPV therapeutic vaccines market.
Currently, there are three FDA approved HPV vaccines available in the market, namely, Gardasil, Gardasil 9, and Cervarix. These vaccines are effective in preventing infections caused by two high-risk HPVs (HPV types 16 and 18), which are responsible for causing about 70% of cervical cancers. Rising incidence of HPV infections and growing concerns related to sexually transmitted diseases are expected to propel the market growth. Conversely, low adoption rate and stringent regulatory policies requiring long-term studies of vaccines and their efficacies hinder the market growth.
