Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/18/2014 -- Hepatitis B, which is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV), is characterized by acute or chronic inflammation of the liver. Researchers and healthcare experts have estimated that roughly two billion people are infected with HBV worldwide, with roughly 600,000 people dying each year from HBV-related liver diseases. While the arrival of recombinant HBsAg vaccines has greatly reduced disease burden over the past two decades, questions surrounding vaccine uptake and effectiveness in adults, particularly in niche patient populations, still remain. GlobalData expects that the growing popularity of pediatric combination vaccines, along with the arrival of vaccines that achieve higher seroconversion rates in high-risk adults, will serve to stimulate growth in the marketplace over the forecast period. Country-specific immunization recommendations and policy implementation will be an essential metric for determining future vaccine uptake in the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan) and Canada.

GlobalData's primary and secondary research has revealed that the reimbursement of Infanrix Hexa, which began in 2008, has helped France's routine HBV immunization program recover from safety concerns (CTV, 2012; Denis et al., 2013). The adult HBV vaccine market in Germany is also expected to grow during the forecast period, led by the arrival of Dynavax Technologies' Heplisav in the second half of 2018. GSK dominated Italy's HBV vaccine market in 2012. Sanofi Pasteur MSD's monovalent vaccine, HBVaxPro, accounted for the remaining market share. More specifically, GlobalData expects the arrival of Sanofi Pasteur MSD's Hexyon to be the principal driver of Spain's market growth, as it should compete with Infanrix Hexa for market share in the routine immunization program. GlobalData's primary research has revealed that challenging barriers to growth, such as poor funding mechanisms due to government spending concerns, inadequate physician education, and low patient awareness, will limit adult vaccine uptake and growth of this segment of the market in the UK.
