Meningococcal disease is caused by the bacterium Neisseria meningitides and occurs sporadically throughout the world with seasonal variations. It accounts for a proportion of endemic bacterial meningitis, which can progress very rapidly leading to death within 24 hours from the onset of symptoms. The disease is often misinterpreted as common flu in most of the cases. Five out of the several serogroups are known to cause meningococcal disease. The serogroups responsible for causing the disease comprise A, B, C, Y and W-135. The causative agent N. meningitides is commonly found in the nasopharynx of humans and gets transmitted through droplet inhalation by means of close contact such as exposure to smokers, crowded living conditions such as dormitories, certain inherited disorders of the immune system, functional/anatomical asplenia or through intimate oral contact among others. According to the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Association, every year, meningitis affects almost 500,000 people globally, primarily affecting toddlers, infants and young adults, due to weaker immune system.

The global market for meningococcal vaccines is segmented broadly into vaccine types namely, polysaccharide, conjugate, combination and Men B vaccines. The report also provides analysis for vaccine under development, NmVac4-DT by JN- International that is expected to be commercialized during the forecast period 2014 to 2022. The vaccine types are further segmented by different brands available in the market. The conjugate vaccines segment is likely to lead the overall meningococcal vaccines market in terms of revenue, which is estimated to be worth USD 3,127.2 million by 2022 at a CAGR of 11.1%. According to Department of Health, U.K., Bexsero is the first serogroup B vaccine to be incorporated into the national immunization program and is expected to be available in the market for sales post settle of price negotiations.

The market for meningococcal vaccines is largely driven by increasing government intervention in reforming the healthcare infrastructure and incorporation of legislations specific to meningococcal vaccination. The public-private partnerships for conducting research and development, and manufacturing of quality vaccines at an affordable price are also contributing positively in driving market growth. Awareness campaigning from government and non-profit organizations, and obligatory immunization for individuals heading to Mecca (for Hajj pilgrimage) and the South African meningitis belt will also contribute to growth of this market. High cost of few but vital vaccines, such as Bexsero, and need for efficient cold chain logistics to maintain safety and efficacy of the vaccine are expected to be some of the major factors posing a challenge to the adequate uptake of these vaccines.
