Inactivated vaccines held significant market share, accounting for a total value of USD 158.2 million in 2018. These vaccines produce strong immune responses by retaining inactivated genomic component and the virus’ surface exposed antigens that are important for strong immune response. Induction of strong and long-lasting immune response will boost the segmental growth.

Vaccines such as subunit and recombinant DNA vaccines are estimated to expand at a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period. Advent of molecular biology allowed production of the most highly antigenic proteins that induce very strong immune response. Moreover, growing R&D initiatives by major market players for launch of innovative and technologically advanced subunit vaccines will foster aquaculture healthcare industry growth.

Aquaculture Vaccines Market, By Route of Administration

Injection vaccines generated maximum revenue share in the year 2018 with a value of USD 120.2 million. The ability of injection vaccines to treat several bacterial and viral infectious will boost the segmental growth. Additionally, automation and technological advancements will further augment segmental growth in the future.

Immersion vaccines market is forecasted to experience robust growth at 6.7% over the projection period. Growing incidence of viral and bacterial diseases along with growing research and clinical trials for development of novel and advanced vaccines will boost market growth. Ease of administration and various advantages associated with immersion vaccines will significantly drive market growth.

Aquaculture Vaccines Market, By Application

Bacterial infection vaccines market segment dominated the industry, accounting for USD 130.7 million in 2018. Growing incidence of bacterial infections such as vibriosis, streptococcosis, pseudomonasis and others will drive segment growth. As per a study published in Virus Diseases Journal, more than 50% of aquaculture diseases occur due to bacteria. Rising prevalence of bacterial infections in aquaculture will boost market growth.

Viral vaccines market is estimated to grow at 6.4% during the forecast timeframe. Viral infections such as infectious salmon anemia (ISA) and infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN) lead to heavy economic loss in aquaculture. Such factors will drive growth of viral aquaculture vaccines market in the coming years.

Aquaculture Vaccines Market, By Species

Aquaculture vaccines intended for salmon generated maximum revenue of USD 116.8 million in 2018. Factors such as growing demand for salmon products along with increasing need for protection against viral and bacterial infections will augment the growth of aquaculture vaccines market for salmons. Additionally, ban on sales of antibiotics for aquaculture will positively drive market growth.

Tilapia vaccines segment is forecasted to expand at 6.8% CAGR across the forecast timeframe. Growing production of tilapia to meet the increasing demand for exotic species will foster industry growth. Furthermore, development of genetically improved tilapia species for increasing production will further drive business growth in tilapia vaccines sector.
