The growing burden of Shigellosis worldwide is anticipated to open up new avenue for Shigella Vaccines Market

Shigella vaccines are being developed to control the rising burden of shigellosis globally. Shigella infections are common in developing countries with poor sanitation and lack of clean drinking water. The currently available Shigella vaccines are focused on protecting young children from the severe health complications of shigellosis such as diarrhea, abdominal pain and fever.

The Shigella Vaccines Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 574.20 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.4% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics:
The shigella vaccines market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to two major drivers. Firstly, the increasing R&D investments by government organizations and private players to develop more effective anti-shigella vaccines is positively impacting the market. Various companies are conducting clinical trials of candidate vaccines to assess safety and efficacy. Secondly, the rising prevalence of antimicrobial resistance among shigella strains has necessitated the development of vaccines as an alternative preventive strategy for shigellosis control. The growing threat of untreatable shigellosis infections is attracting research funding for vaccine candidates targeting multidrug resistant shigella serotypes. This is expected to fuel market revenue growth during the forecast period.

Segment Analysis

The Shigella vaccines market is segmented into monovalent shigella conjugate vaccine and combination shigella conjugate vaccine. The combination shigella conjugate vaccine segment is dominating the market owing to the high demand for combination vaccine that prevents against multiple types of shigella serotypes in a single dose.
