Foot and mouth disease (FMD) is a severe and immensely contagious disease generally seen among cattle, deers, goats,sheep, swine another cloven-hoofed domestic as well as wild animal species. A virus aptho virus from picornavirus family infectsfoot and mouth in those animals. Asia1, A, C, O, Southern African territories 1, 2, and 3 are the seven sero types of FMD virus. Presence of some of the sero type viruses’is limited to certain geographical regions.Symptoms of FMD include blisters similar to sores on mouth, lips, tongues,teeth as well as between the hooves, depression, fever, foot lesions followed by severe lameness and reluctance to move, loss of appetite, and, reduction in milk production.Mixed breeds are more susceptible to FMD than the traditional breeds. Though fatality among adult animals is less, younger ones have high mortality. Infected animals release the virus through feces and other bodily secretions. As it is a viral disease, it can spread faster among animals and economically affect countries. FMD outbreaks can affect the food supply chain of major food commodities such as cheese, milk and meat. FMD leaves animals weakened. FMD vaccinations can help in controlling the outbreaks. FMD vaccines contain the sero type of the virus. However, the virus mutates relentlessly and hence the effectiveness of a medicine lasts for some months or a year. New emergency FMD vaccines are developed from the strains of the outbreaks to counter the mutated viruses. Such vaccines can prevent the disease in unaffected animals within days.For different sero types of the FMD virus, different vaccines are available. When an FMD outbreak occurs, the animals in the area are vaccinated and the weak ones are euthanized to prevent escalation of the outbreak. Buffalo, cattle, goat, sheep and some other animals are given FMD vaccination few months after birth. They can be given booster doses and revaccination at different stages.
Figure 1: Global Foot and Mouth Disease Vaccines Market by Value 2015 - 2023
The value of the global FMD vaccines market was valued over USD 550 million during 2015. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of between 8.5 % and 9.5% from 2017 to 2023.Increasing instances of FMD outbreaks in various countries in Asia, Middle East and Latin America is driving the growth in demand for FMD vaccines. In regions where there are frequent FMD outbreaks, favourable government policies regarding FMD vaccines and intervention in distribution are bringing down its cost and it is expected to drive the growth of the global FMD vaccines market. The increasing demand for live stocks products across the world, especially in emerging and developing countries is driving the global FMD vaccines market. Moreover, the matured economies depend on various countries for meat products. To meet the demand, the production of live stocks is increasing multi-fold. To meet the stringent import regulations and to prevent FMD outbreaks, various countries and vendors promote FMD vaccinations for live stocks. In countries with regular FMD endemics, conventional FMD vaccines are gaining more demand as they are used as long-term preventive medicines, when compared to emergency medicines, which are used to control sudden FMD outbreak. The increasing demand for conventional FMD vaccines is expected to enhance the growth of the global FMD vaccines market during the forecast period. Cattle segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment in the global FMD vaccines market during the forecast period, due to the presence of large number of cattle in the FMD endemic countries. The mutable serotype FMD outbreaks is expected to restrain the growth of the market, as it requisites large investment and effort to produce vaccines at short notice to counter such viruses. The increased investments in Research and Development is yielding advanced vaccines for FMD and it is expected to provide opportunities for the major players to expand in regions with frequent FMD endemics. Moreover, the FMD DNA vaccines are expected to generate opportunities for the major players in the market. The decreasing price for FMD vaccines, due to government intervention in distribution in various countries is a major challenge to the profitability for major manufacturers in the global FMD vaccines market.
The report segments the global FMD vaccines market by product, application and region. On the basis of product, the market is segmented as conventional and emergency. Based on application, the market is segmented as cattle, goat, pigs, sheep and others.
Geographic Coverage and Analysis:
The report provides regional analysis covering geographies such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World. Asia-Pacific region dominates the global FMD vaccines market, due to the frequent FMD endemics in the region. Major meat exporting countries in the region such as China and India along with major countries that face FMD endemics such as Bangladesh, Hong Kong, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and South Korea drive the demand for the FMD vaccines. Dairy and livestock industries in France, Germany, Spain, Russia and UK drive the growth of the FMD vaccines market in Europe. Owing to a European Union ban on the movement of infected animals or products made from suspected infected animals, there is an emphasis on FMD vaccinations for prevention in the region. Major meat exporters such as Brazil and Argentina drive the growth of the Latin American FMD vaccines market, as FMD outbreaks can affect their exports to Europe and other major meat consuming countries. The FMD outbreaks in some countries such as Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Turkey in the recent pastare likely to drive the growth of demand for FMD vaccines in the Middle East over the coming years. The preventive programmes for FMD outbreaks in the U.S. to aid the booming meat exports industryis anticipated to drive the North American FMD vaccines market over the forecast period.
