DUBLIN, July 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The “COVID-19 Vaccine Development Tools Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Technology, by Application (Vaccine Process Development, Vaccine Research), by End Use (CROs, Pharma & Biopharma Companies), and Segment Forecasts, 2021 – 2028” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The global COVID-19 vaccine development tools market size is expected to reach USD 30.9 billion by 2028
The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2021 to 2028. Research professionals across the globe, are rapidly persuading the identification and development of viable candidates to develop COVID-19 immunization shots.
This is attributed to the persisting devastation of SARS-CoV-2 across the globe. Additionally, second waves of SARS-CoV-2 infection were expected to coincide with the beginning of winter in the northern hemisphere, indicating the crucial period in the pandemic’s timeline.
Thus, the development of a viable immunization shot is imperative to mitigate the global impact of COVID-19. Acknowledging this need, entities engaged in the development of effective inoculation against COVID-19, are aiming at 4 potential key vaccine candidates, namely, mRNA, recombinant, inactivated, and replication-deficient viral vector. These 4 candidates are the key areas of focus, and the integration of mass spectrometry and chromatography for candidate characterization is common across the development process of all the above candidates.
The spike protein (S-protein) is the most preferred target site with respect to the COVID-19 vaccine target discovery. This is attributed to the fact that the S-proteins are spread throughout the surface of the COVID-19 molecule, which enables attachment to host cell receptors, in turn ensuring easy entry of the virus into the host cell. Active government initiatives aimed at enabling the fast-track development of COVID-19 boosters are expected to create a favorable environment for entities operating in the industry.
For instance, in April 2020, the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator was launched aimed at speeding up the delivery and development of COVID-19 boosters. This initiative is inclusive of a health systems connector that supports the delivery of required resources to countries.
The tools are also pooled under the umbrella mechanism, namely, the COVAX Facility to ensure effective procurement as well as equitable access to, COVID-19 vaccination and development tools. The ACT Accelerator targets to deliver around 2 billion doses by the end of 2021, across the globe.
