Vaccines are antigenic substances prepared from the causative agent of a disease or a synthetic substitute of it and generally used to impart immunity against one or several diseases. DNA vaccines are composed of deoxyribonucleic acid, which encodes antigens and stimulate a wider range of immune responses in the body with few side effects. DNA vaccines are a result of technological progression in biotechnology and gene delivery systems. Clinical trials of some DNA vaccines have shown promising results in treatment of several types of cancers like metastatic melanoma, prostate carcinoma, pancreatic cancer, and other solid tumors.
Factors driving global demand for DNA vaccine market are increasing awareness amongst health professional, fewer side effects, ease of development and lower cost, constant progress in biotechnology and conventional therapy failure in treatment of most infectious diseases.
This report provides information on DNA vaccine market size for the year 2014-2016, and forecast of the same for year 2021. It also focuses on market drivers, challenges, restraints, market dynamics, growth indicators, competitive landscape, potential growth opportunities and other key aspects with respect to DNA vaccine market.
Globally, emerging technologies have taken healthcare closer to patients, DNA vaccines is one among these technology. They mainly use immunological pathways, which are difficult to achieve by other technologies. North America, Europe and other developed economies have good market for DNA vaccines due to their well-equipped healthcare infrastructure, a prominent research and development activities in the field of DNA vaccines, awareness among healthcare physicians on treatment options and percentage of people covered under healthcare insurance. APAC region has a growing demand for DNA vaccines due to increasing awareness on availability of new treatment options and increased focus on research and development activities.
