Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/01/2018 -- Poultry vaccines are an important component of poultry disease prevention and control. A vaccine helps to avoid a particular disease by boosting the bird's immune system to produce antibodies which will fight the invading causal organisms. Handling and administration procedures influence the potency of many vaccines and consequently the level of immunity the bird develops. Most of the poultry killed vaccines are developed against viral diseases. A poultry vaccination program depends on several factors such as type of production, level of biosecurity, local pattern of disease, status of maternal immunity, availability of vaccines, and costs and potential losses. Vaccines are administered through different routes such as in vivo, intramuscular, subcutaneous, ocular, oral, and nasal. Vaccines can be applied to five different areas of the egg such as the air cell, allantoic sac, amniotic fluid, body of embryo, and yolk sac. Hygiene management, including reduced air circulation, well maintained air filters, adjustment to weather conditions, and well maintained hatchery insulation, is important for in vivo vaccination.
Factors such as government initiatives, rapid growth of poultry population, and increasing incidence of zoonotic diseases, technological advancement, and growing demand for poultry derived food products and poultry vaccination are the key accelerating factors for the growth of the global Poultry Vaccines Market. According to Merial Health, by 2020, chicken is projected to overtake pork as the global animal protein of choice, and the poultry industry is likely to play an even more crucial role in ensuring food for the future global populations. In addition, new vaccine innovation, vaccination programs by leading players, and animal health care expenditure are factors fueling the growth of the global poultry vaccines market. However, rising maintenance cost for the storage of vaccine and increasing adoption of vegetarian food may negatively affect the market growth.
