The "Poultry Vaccines Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 - 2024)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The demand for poultry vaccines is majorly driven by the growing poultry headcount and increasing prevalence of zoonotic diseases in poultry.

Furthermore, growing consumption of meat globally, initiatives are taken by the government, growing demand for poultry-related food products, latest technologies for manufacturing new vaccines and the increasing poultry healthcare expenditure are the factors that are fueling the growth of the global poultry vaccines market.

Scope of the report

Vaccines help to prevent any particular disease by boosting the bird's immune system to produce antibodies, which in turn, fight against organisms, especially Salmonella, E. coli, and Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG), and diseases like Marek's disease, infectious bronchitis (IB), avian rhinotracheitis (ART), Newcastle disease, and infectious bursal disease (Gumboro disease).

Key market trends

Avian influenza is expected to lead the market

Avian influenza is a viral disease which is found across all the countries in the world and occurs in birds. The severity of the disease can vary from mild to severe. Avian influenza is transmitted to human beings by direct contact. Disease outbreaks have been reported in countries, such as the United States, Asia, and Europe. The vaccines are approved only if they pass the standards set by the World Organization for Animal Health.

The vaccine for the avian influenza is given to imbibe the protection against hemagglutinin (HA) protein. The CDC has given statistics on the spread of avian influenza in the United States. The stats indicate that HPAI H5 viruses were reported in around 21 states in the United States during 2014-2015. Furthermore, the CDC has reported that the mortality for this disease is around 90-100 percent. This shows that the disease is associated with a high risk. Hence, the regulatory bodies are now accelerating the process of approval for various vaccines related to veterinary health.

North America is expected to dominate over the forecast period

North America is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period, owing to the factors, such as the increase in consumption of poultry-derived products, growing consumer awareness regarding food safety, and increasing incidence of zoonotic diseases associated with poultry.
