The global travel vaccines market was worth US$ 5.2 Billion in 2019. Travel vaccines, also known as travel immunizations, are vaccines travelers can get before they visit certain regions across the globe which help protect them from serious diseases. Travel vaccines work by exposing the body to a microorganism or parts of the microorganism of the disease it will protect against. The body responds to the vaccination by making antibodies that will protect it against a situation where there is an exposure to the disease in the future.
The number of international tourist arrivals worldwide increased from 1.0 Billion in 2012 to nearly 1.4 Billion in 2018. A significant number of these travelers journey from developed countries to regions with endemic diseases. As more people travel to countries with endemic diseases, the demand for vaccines will continue to increase. Moreover, regulatory authorities across the globe have also mandated that travelers should be vaccinated before traveling to disease-prone regions. As a result, travel vaccines have now become an essential requirement in an international travelers list. For instance, the Ministry of Health in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia requires that all travelers arriving for Hajj and Umrah from countries or areas at risk of diseases such as yellow fever, Meningococcal meningitis and Poliomyelitis must present a valid vaccination certificate. Other factors driving the demand for travel vaccines include increasing awareness levels, technological advancements and increasing incidence of life-threatening infectious diseases. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global travel vaccines market to exhibit moderate growth during 2020-2025.
