Introduction to Ebola Vaccines
Ebola virus disease is a life threatening disease that results in high fever, body aches, diarrhea and internal or external bleeding. It is a rare fatal condition in humans which is transmitted from either infected animals or people. The Ebola virus damages the organs in the body, including the immune system, which eventually results in prevention of blood clotting and excessive bleeding. The disease is highly prevalent in the continent of Africa.
Market Size and Forecast
The Ministry of Health in Democratic Republic of the Congo reported that as of March 10, 2020, there have been a total of 3,444 cases, out of which 3,310 are confirmed and 134 are probable. This number includes 2,264 deaths, 1,169 survivors as well as the patients that are still under care. This has been labelled as the world’s second largest Ebola epidemic and was declared on August 1, 2018.
The Ebola vaccine market is anticipated to record a significantly high CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2020-2028. There are four types of Ebola virus strains that are known to affect humans. These consist of: Ebola virus (Zaire ebolavirus), Sudan virus (Sudan ebolavirus), Taï Forest virus (Taï Forest ebolavirus) and Bundibugyo virus (Bundibugyo ebolavirus). The market is segmented by virus type, by end user and by region. On the basis of virus type, the market is segmented into Ebola virus, Sudan virus, Taï Forest virus and Bundibugyo virus, out of which, the segment for Ebola virus is anticipated to hold the largest share in the Ebola vaccine market. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the high occurrence of Ebola virus among people as compared with the other strains of the virus.
Rising Prevalence of Ebola Virus Disease to Drive the Demand for Ebola Vaccine
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) experienced its tenth Ebola virus disease outbreak in 2019, during which a total of 3,296 cases of Ebola were reported as on November 17, 2019. Along with this, 2,196 deaths were reported as well. The World Health Organization termed this Ebola virus disease outbreak as a public health emergency of international concern on July 17, 2019.
The growing number of deaths as a result of Ebola virus disease and the need for effective treatment methods in the affected regions is anticipated to become a major growth driving factor for the Ebola vaccine market.
Increasing R&D by Companies to Boost the Market Growth
The measures being taken by various pharmaceutical companies and governments all across the world for the development of drugs and vaccines for the treatment of Ebola virus disease is another important factor estimated to result in the market growth in near future.
Strict Government Regulations for Drug Approvals to Hinder the Market Growth
Despite the increasing research and development activities for Ebola vaccine development by various leading companies and the growing demand for such vaccines, the strict rules and regulations for approval of these vaccines is estimated to restrict the market growth.
