Global Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine Market: Segmentation by Type (Bivalent and Polyvalent), by Disease Indication (HPV Associated Cancer and Genital Warts), by Distribution Channel (Hospital & Retail Pharmacies, Government Suppliers, and Others) and Geography Forecast, 2019-2028


Report Overview

The global Human Papillomavirus Vaccine market size stood at around USD 3.8 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD xx billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period.  

The need for reducing HPV infections will bode well for the market and create demand for HPV vaccines. According to the HPV Information Center, annual cases in 2018 for cervical cancer were the highest in emerging countries such as China and India, leading to the demand for vaccination camps offering doses. The governments from all the countries worldwide are keenly focused on implementing policies to help eradicate the burden of the disease. Moreover, owing to the imposition of stringent regulations, the vaccination supply has increased and is expected to rise at a faster rate during the forecast period. This increase in supply is will boost the global market

Market Drivers

Efficacy of HPV Vaccines to Accelerate the Sales: One of the most crucial and significant drivers of the market is the efficacy and protection provided by HPV vaccines to reduce the adverse effects associated with such infections. As manufacturers have developed novel vaccines of immunization, over the past years, a change in vaccination policies and beliefs have been observed worldwide. This has potentially increased the uptake and acceptability of HPV vaccines. Both bivalent and polyvalent vaccines have proved their efficacy and safety through clinical trials in protecting against HPV infections and cancer

Increasing Efforts to Meet Unmet Needs to Drive Production of HPV Vaccines: Another factor driving the market is the increase in the manufacturing capability of HPV vaccines to maintain supply-demand balance worldwide. Currently, the supply of this vaccines is insufficient to meet the existing demand. This scenario is likely to persist for a short term due to the increase in the number of countries planning to introduce HPV vaccines. For instance, in December 2018, the Ministry of Health of Ethiopia introduced the HPV vaccine through school-based approach for girls under the age group of 14 years to immunize against cervical cancer

Market Segmentation

By Indication:

On the basis of disease indication, the global market is segmented into HPV associated cancer and genital warts. Among these, the HPV associated cancer segment accounted for the highest Human Papillomavirus vaccine market share in 2019. It is also likely to emerge as the fastest growing segment during the forecast period. This dominance is attributed to the higher sales of the HPV type vaccines worldwide for immunization, mainly against cervical cancer. High-risk HPV16 and 18 strains have been maximally detected in cervical cancer patients leading to need for vaccination against these strains. The World Health Organization (WHO) says that 100% of the cervical cancers and 90% of anal cancers are caused due to HPV infections

Presently, the availability of only three HPV vaccines has led to higher demand for protection against HPV16 and HPV18 associated infections. HPV associated cancers are largely observed in females than in males. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the incidence rates for vaginal, vulva and cervical cancer was recorded the highest in the year 2018. On the other hand, genital warts account for a comparatively lower market value as the infection is thought to disappear on its own or goes unnoticeable most of the times. Genital warts, unless serious, do not require any medical treatment, though for vaccination against genital wartsare in demand

By Region:

North America generated a revenue of USD 1.83 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to dominate the global market in the forthcoming years. Higher sales value of Gardasil/Gardasil 9 and the rapid adoption of Human Papillomavirus Vaccine across the region is expected to drive the market growth in North America. Moreover, the implementation of marketing, distribution, and launching strategies by the key players ensuring higher sales has led to the dominance of North America in the global HPV vaccines market

Asia Pacific is expected to showcase the highest growth rate in the market owing to the emendation of immunization policies by the governments that further propelled the demand for HPV vaccines in the region., contributing to the rising demand for vaccine supply, coupled with the growing incidence rates of HPV disease are responsible for the growth of the Asia Pacific market. According to the HPV Information Center in 2019, annual incidence of 106,430 cervical cancer cases was recorded in China alone. Likewise, India, Southeast Asia, and other countries have also recorded high annual incidence rates in 2019. The growing prevalence of HPV associated cancer and effective implementation of HPV immunization will drive the Asia Pacific market growth during the forecast period

On the other hand, Latin America is projected to witness a significant growth in the market due to the penetration of HPV vaccines in the region and the increasing awareness among the patient pool regarding the benefits of HPV immunization. International organizations such as GAVI, PAHO, and UNICEF are also focused on providing vaccines to the needy by procuring high volume doses from manufacturers. The European market for Human Papillomavirus Vaccine is anticipated to undergo a slower growth due to a lesser prevalence of HPV associated infections and the lack of adoption of its vaccines in under-developed parts of Europe. The Middle East and Africa will witness restricted growth in the market as compared to the other key regions owing to lack of awareness about the availability and adoption of this vaccines and stringent immunization policies

Key Industry Players

The market is dominated by Merck Co., Inc and GlaxoSmithKline plc., due to their only products available in the market for the treatment of HPV infections. Also, the implementation of key distribution strategy in the developed as well as in developing nations has led to an increase in sales of both the companies. Merck has a strong portfolio of HPV vaccines that includes Gardasil and Gardasil 9. Likewise, Merck Co., Inc also has an effective HPV vaccine portfolio in competition to GSK’s portfolio. The company’s top-selling vaccines Gardasil and Gardasil 9, are factors helping Merck continue the leading position in the market competition

Moreover, the other companies are focused on launching novel vaccines in the market against different strains of human papillomavirus. Currently, Merck has three pipeline candidates in phase 3, while GSK has two pipeline candidate undergoing clinical trials
