The vaccinations against flu virus can help in protecting human being & animals from infection and helps in reducing chronic lung diseases and diabetes including the lower rates in cardiac events. Complication that arises due to flu is ear infection, pneumonia, sinus etc., Burnet discovers the flu virus can be generated in embroyonated hen’s egg in 1936.

Some major key players for global flu vaccine market report cover prominent players like
September 27th, 2021: Pfizer has started a study on mRNA based next generation flu vaccine. Pfizer has collaboration with German biotech company named BioNTech to develop new mRNA technology to generate a flu vaccine shot. This collaboration will speed up the manufacturing process of the vaccines, reducing much of the guess work while creating the vaccine. The flu virus is grown in mammalian cell of chicken eggs & then inactivated and processed further for vaccines. Using this technology scientist would focus and would also monitor data on the current strains and can use information on genes that would further produce corresponding RNA. The manufacturing process of this RNA vaccine is simpler and can create new vaccine within 8 days after the new flu virus is known. Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine program is the very first planned program including the mRNA technology for flu.
One of the major driving factors of global flu vaccine market is increasing research & development activities and ongoing clinic trial for advanced flu vaccine. The government vaccination program was launched on 6th October 2021, where the government will continue to vaccinate people who are affected from flu and pneumococcal. NIAID Vaccine Research Center scientists have initiated Phase 1 research of universal flu vaccine which includes DNA- based vaccine followed by the seasonal flu to improve its quality and durability. Also, the phase 2 trial for flu vaccine called M-001 launched by NIAID. This vaccine was developed by the BiondVax pharmaceuticals.

However, factors that restrain the market from growth are lack of awareness & knowledge about the flu vaccine followed by shortage of vaccine in developing & developed countries According to the CDC, 9.3 million dose of flu vaccine was purchased by CDC to avoid the shortage of vaccine in case of more supply. Increasing immunization programs will give more opportunities in the forecast period.
North America is expected to hold the major market share in the global flu vaccine market due to rising awareness amongst people regarding flu, including the development of healthcare and medical facilities. Rising prevalence of flu has increase the awareness in people reducing the risk of death or other serious diseases. According to CDC, 193.8 million doses of flu vaccine have been given to people on February 26, 2021, out of which around 1674 people tested positive for flu.
