Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/08/2018 -- Vaccines are biological preparations that provide immunity against a specific or number of diseases. Pentavalent vaccine is a combination of five vaccines. It provides immunity to children against five potentially fatal diseases: diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, hepatitis B, and hemophilius influenza type b. Governments of several countries such as India have decided to include the vaccine in the national immunization schedule. This vaccine can be given to any child aged from 6 weeks to 1 year.
The global Pentavalent Vaccine Market is projected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. According to the World Health Organization, hemophilius influenza type b (Hib) is one of the leading causes of childhood pneumonia and meningitis. Hib caused around 8.1 million illnesses globally in 2000. Hence, high incidence rate of the disease is one of the major factors fueling the growth of the global pentavalent vaccine market. Implementation of universal immunization program, rise in awareness about child care, and high efficiency are the other factors likely to propel the global market during the forecast period. Furthermore, less pricks to children and protection against five diseases, government initiatives to reduce incidence of the diseases, entry of new vaccine developers, and robust R&D are factors expected to fuel the growth of the global market from 2017 to 2025. Stringent government regulation regarding efficacy and safety and lack of coverage area can act as major restraints of the global pentavalent vaccine market during the forecast period.
The global pentavalent vaccine market can be segmented based on formulation type, distribution channel, and region. In terms of formulation type, the global market can be divided into lyophilized and liquid. The liquid segment is expected to hold a significant share during the forecast period, as only liquid formulation is used in several regions such as India based on immunization program. Based on distribution channel, the global pentavalent vaccine market can be categorized into retail pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, and e-commerce.
