Posted by Mrudula Karmarkar on January 17th, 2022

The global meningococcal vaccine market size is expected to reach USD 5.9 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 9.5%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing prevalence of meningitis is one of the major factors attributed to the market growth. Furthermore, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), it was estimated that in 2017, 3,221 confirmed cases were observed in the EU member states, in which 58% of cases were found in the U.K., France, Spain, and Germany.

Non-profit organizations entering into strategic initiatives such as partnering, alliances, and others to improve access to new vaccines for vulnerable children is anticipated to drive the market. For instance, Gavi is a vaccine alliance formed between UNICEF, World Health Organization, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the World Bank to help boost economies of low-income countries and improve access to under-used vaccines for children suffering from meningitis. Moreover, clinical trials conducted on teenagers to develop novel meningococcal vaccines are expected to drive the market. For instance, in March 2018, the National Health Service launched a Meningitis B vaccine trial for teenagers and recruited 24,000 volunteers of age group 16 to 18 years for this study. This clinical trial was funded and supported by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
