GlobalData has released its new Country report, “PharmaPoint: Meningococcal Vaccines - US Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022”. Meningococcal disease is an acute infection caused by the gram-negative bacterium Neisseria meningitidis. Its rapid onset and severity of symptoms makes prompt and effective diagnosis and treatment nearly impossible. For these reasons the meningococcal disease space is dominated by vaccines. Currently, tetravalent conjugate vaccines, such as Sanofi’s Menactra and Novartis’ Menveo, account for the vast majority of global sales, with the US adolescent market being the key target segment. GlobalData expects growth in the meningococcal vaccines market to be primarily driven by the launch of serotype B vaccines, which address a critical unmet need in the treatment landscape. Vaccines that better protect infants and/or provide a longer duration of immunity also have an opportunity to seize market share during 2012-2022.
GlobalData expects the MenACWY patient share to remain stagnant because of the market’s high level of maturity. In contrast, the MenB vaccine market appears poised to take off in the US. GlobalData anticipates that Pfizer will target adolescents with its MenB vaccine, an approach that should facilitate rapid uptake, given the ACIP’s current immunization recommendations (CDC, 2013b). On the other hand, the reluctance of policymakers to implement a routine infant program that does not offer serogroup B protection poses a challenge to companies that have targeted this age segment, such as GSK.
