The global MMR vaccine market was valued at USD 697.4 Million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 938.9 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period. Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccines are a fusion of live viruses that are given as an injection. Live viruses are inactivated and cannot replicate in the human cells as immune system develops a response and defends against the infection.
The market is driven by factors such as rising incidences of MMR, increasing number of patients with autoimmune disease, growing focus on immunization programs, and increasing awareness among consumers for vaccine. Conversely, high cost of vaccine development and lack of information and unavailability of vaccines in rural areas are key restraints of this market. Growth of healthcare providers in emerging markets an opportunity for vaccine manufacturer, rise in adoption of MMR Vaccine to prevent corona virus infectious disease (COVID-19), and increase in adoption of combination vaccines are boosting the market.
On the basis of age group, the global MMR vaccine market is bifurcated into infants and preschooler. The infant segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 3.7% during the forecast period due to rising government initiatives to decrease the prevalence of diseases through immunization. The preschooler segment is estimated to hold 41.0% share of the market in 2020 owing to its increasing effectiveness in immunity from the measles, mumps, and rubella.
Based on end-users, the market is segmented into hospitals, clinics, and healthcare centers. The hospital segment is projected to hold a major share of the market during the forecast period owing to the increasing incorporation of the MMR vaccine in a majority of private and public hospitals globally. The healthcare centers segment is expected to grow at a substantial pace due to improvements in infrastructure and universal healthcare systems, especially in developing countries.
