Shingles Vaccine Market - Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity

The shingles vaccine market revenue is expected to grow at a robust rate over the forecast period. Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is a viral infection that affects the cranial nerves that originate in the brain. It is caused by the varicella zoster virus, the same virus that also cases chicken pox. The virus can stay dormant for many years in the human body. Therefore, anyone who has had chicken pox in the past is at the risk of developing shingles. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are an estimated one million cases of shingles reported every year in the U.S. Moreover, CDC states that around one in every three people in the U.S. will develop shingles in their lifetime. The risk of shingles increases with age, with most cases reported among people over 40 years old. This is mainly due to weakening of the immune system on account of increased stress and inadequate intake of essential nutrients to keep immunity strong.

Symptoms include skin rashes, nerve pain, vision loss, chills, upset stomach, muscle weakness, skin infection, and scarring. Treatment for shingles includes antiviral medication—acyclovir, valacyclovir, and famciclovir. These medicines help shorten the length and alleviate the severity of the illness. Further, analgesics may help relieve the pain.

The effectiveness reduces with increasing age i.e. to 41% for the 70–79 age group, and 18% for those 80 years of age and older. The vaccine was launched in the India market in February 2016, at half the price of the U.S. market. Zostavax, among the only shingles vaccine in the market, recorded sales of US$ 749 million in 2015.

In October 2016, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)—a global leader in vaccines market—filed for U.S. FDA approval for its shingles vaccine, Shingrix. Shingrix has demonstrated better outcomes than Zostavax in its clinical trials. The vaccine was 90% efficacious in people over 70 years of age. The overall effectiveness of the vaccine is found to be 97%. Its higher effectiveness even among elder group of people is projected to increase its adoption across the globe.

Better outcomes of Shingrix would be a boon for highly lucrative global shingles vaccines market.
