However, advances in vaccine technology, the launch of new vaccines, increased investment in research, a change of public opinion about vaccination, and more favorable legislation regarding vaccine injury compensation have contributed to their re-emergence as successful growth drivers.

Vaccine market overview 2010

Five companies account for approximately 80% of total global vaccine sales: Sanofi Pasteur, Merck & Co., GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, and Novartis. The key reason for this oligopoly is the high barrier to entry for smaller players, which usually have limited manufacturing capacity, and may also lack the resources and the distribution networks required for vaccine development.

Novavax: competitors may follow lead in regional strategy

US biotech Novavax has initiated a pivotal two-stage study for its H1N1 influenza vaccine in Mexico. Novavax's strategy of pursuing approval for the vaccine in smaller markets before targeting the US represents an alternative and faster route to market. Given the many benefits of this strategy, Datamonitor believes that it may be adopted by other small vaccine companies in the future.
