About this report
The global market for vaccines is estimated to be only 2-3% of the total pharmaceuticals market in 2014; however, this sector has been continuously experiencing a stellar growth rate of 10-15% per year versus the 5-7% seen in the overall market. Currently, the most commonly available vaccines are administered by injection, which makes mass immunization more costly and less safe, particularly in resource-poor developing countries. More than 120 new products are currently in the development pipeline, of which sixty hold significant importance to developing nations. The type of delivery system will predict which type of vaccine delivery will remain the most attractive (in terms of revenue) for stakeholders in the next 5 years.
