According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, "Cholera Vaccine Market by Product and End User: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018 - 2025," the global cholera vaccine market generated $65 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $207 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 15.6% from 2018 to 2025. The Dukoral segment accounted around half of the total market share in 2017.
Cholera is an acute, profusely watery diarrhea caused by Vibrio cholera and spreads through contamination of water and food. In addition, it is closely associated with poor sanitation and lack of clean drinking water. The number of global cholera disease cases accounts for around 35 million every year. Currently, the frequency of cholera epidemics has increased mainly in low- and middle-income countries. Cholera control is the main priority in cholera-endemic areas, which in turn increase the demand for the cholera vaccines.
The cholera vaccine market is expected to exhibit significant growth during the forecast period due to lack of proper sanitation & consumption of contaminated food and growth in awareness about cholera preventive care. In addition, development of novel approaches for new cholera vaccine further drive the market growth. However, risk of adverse effects and the time taken for the regulatory approval is projected to impede the market growth. On the contrary, high growth opportunities in untapped markets are expected to offer significant profitable opportunities for the market players in the near future.
Based on end user, the market is categorized into hospitals & clinics, research & academic laboratories, and others. The hospitals & clinics segment presently dominates the market, and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period. This is attributed to the fact that hospitals and clinics are authorized to organize campaigns for cholera vaccination, as the number of cases for cholera diseases is rapidly growing in LMICs.
Asia-Pacific was the leading revenue contributor to the global cholera vaccine market in 2017, and is expected to remain dominant throughout the forecast period due to increase in the prevalence of cholera disease and rise in importance of immunization. However, North America is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the study period. This is attributed to the launch of the first and only oral cholera vaccine, Vaxchora, in the USA. Furthermore, the number of travelers to the cholera-affected countries is increasing, which in turn increases the demand for immunization.
