Seasonal Influenza Vaccines Market – Drivers

Increasing incidence of seasonal influenza infection in various geographies is expected to be a major driving factor for growth of global seasonal influenza vaccines market. Rising pandemic events of influenza virus and their severity attributed to the genetic diversity of influenza virus is also another factor aiding in growth of the market.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 2015, around 233 million outpatient visits, 5.2 million hospital admissions, and 7.4 million deaths are expected if a pandemic case were to occur, globally.
