Research and Markets: PharmaPoint: Seasonal Influenza Vaccines - China Drug Forecast and Market Analysis

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pqzs5w/pharmapoint) has announced the addition of GlobalData's new report "PharmaPoint: Seasonal Influenza Vaccines China Drug Forecast and Market Analysis" to their offering.

Seasonal Influenza is a respiratory infection caused by influenza virus that results in mild to severe symptoms, such as fever, cold and cough. The market is heavily driven by the sales of prophylactic vaccine treatments to prevent infection. Currently, trivalent intramuscular vaccines such as Sanofi's Fluzone and Vaxigrip, GlaxoSmithKline's Fluarix and FluLaval and Novartis' Fluvirin garner the majority stake of the market. However, with the entrance of vaccines with novel routes of administration, such as AstraZeneca's intranasal FluMist and Sanofi's Fluzone IntraDermal, GlobalData projects a dramatic shift favoring the adoption of such vaccines over the traditional intramuscular vaccines. GlobalData also anticipates that manufacturers that launch quadrivalent formulations will steal market share, patient share, and revenue from the trivalent influenza vaccines currently available.

The Chinese influenza vaccine market is estimated to be valued at $172m in 2012. Market growth is projected to be driven by the increase of China's elderly population and the growth of its indigenous influenza vaccine production capacity. The barriers to the growth of China's influenza vaccine market include the absence of national vaccination reimbursement program and the country's focus on pandemic/avian influenza.
