Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Rift Valley Fever Treatment Market size is anticipated to surpass USD 2 Billion by the end of 2036, expanding around 5% CAGR during the forecast period i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of rift valley fever treatment was over USD 200 Million. The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising cases of rift valley fever. Mosquito-borne rift valley fever seems to grow in humans and animals owing to factors such as climate change that are creating ideal mosquito breeding grounds. Further, increased outbreaks accelerate the demand for supportive care and highlight the urgent need for specific treatments.  In people, the total RVF CFR was determined to be 27.5%. In people and animals, the overall pooled prevalence was 7.8% and 9.3%, respectively.  

As the threat of river valley fever expands, governments and research institutions are investing more money in developing new treatments and vaccines for the disease. This investment is likely to lead to the development of new and more effective treatments for river valley fever in the forecast period. Therefore, the development of new treatment options and medications for the river valley fever cure is further predicted to drive the growth of this market in the future times.

Rift Valley Fever Treatment Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Surging Research and Development for Rift Valley Treatment – There is currently no specific antiviral treatment for rift valley fever. Patients are typically treated with supportive care such as fluids, pain, relievers, and blood transfusions. According to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there is no FDA-approved treatment for RVF, and mild symptoms are treated using over-the-counter medications. This lack of a specific treatment creates a significant unmet medical need and is driving investment in the development of new river valley fever treatment. However, symptoms of this deadly disease include fever, muscle pain, headache, loss of appetite, vomiting, and other flu-like symptoms at the early stage of infection. These can be treated using general fever medications, or the infected person develops immunity against the virus. However, in severe cases, symptoms can be serious, such as retinal lesions, meningoencephalitis, loss of memory, hallucinations, vertigo, and hemorrhagic fever. According to the data from the World Health Organization, only 0.5-2% of patients develop eye or ocular diseases, and less than 1% experience meningoencephalitis and hemorrhagic fever.
  • Increased Awareness About Rift Valley Fever- The awareness of rift valley fever among both the public and healthcare professionals. This is due to several factors, including media coverage of rift valley fever outbreaks and educational campaigns by public health organizations. This increased awareness is leading to increased demand for awareness is leading to increased demand for rift valley fever treatment and prevention measures.


  • Inaccurate and Slow Diagnostics – Existing diagnostic tests for rift valley fever can be slow, expensive, and require specialized equipment, limiting access in resource-limited requins. Early detection and outbreak control are hampered by these bottlenecks. This is predicted to hamper the rift valley fever (RVF) treatment market growth in the upcoming period.
  • High Development Cost is another Substantial Factor Posing Limitation on the Market Expansion in the Future Times.
  • Limited Healthcare Resources Availability for the Treatment is Anticipated to Limit the Market Growth in the Forecast Period.

Rift Valley Fever Treatment Segmentation

Transmission (Mosquito Vector, Cattle)

In terms of transmission, the mosquito vector segment is anticipated to hold a prominent share of 70% in the global rift valley fever (RVF) treatment market during the forecast period on account of the higher proximity of infection transmission through mosquitoes, along with the lack of preventive methods in case of mosquito vector transmission. There is no requirement for direct contact with animals in case of transmission by mosquitoes, which makes it more dangerous and easier to spread. Such factors are estimated to boost the segment growth. Additionally, as the mosquitos are becoming the primary transmission route the rift valley fever prevention strategies increasingly target mosquito control. This further drive demand for insecticides, mosquito nets, and larvicides as a result driving the segment growth in this market.

Treatment (Medication, Supportive Care)

The medication segment in the rift valley fever treatment market is predicted to hold the largest revenue share of 60% by the end of 2036. Several promising antiviral drugs are in the development pipeline for rift valley fever. These target different stages of the viral replication cycle, offering the potential for more effective treatment. The successful development and commercialization of these drugs would significantly boost the medication segment of the market. Medication for fever and pain alleviation can be used to treat symptoms of the moderate type of RVF; however, individuals coming with severe symptoms are not yet treated with any specific or approved therapies.
