Key Market Trends

Vaccines and Therapeutics Segment is Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share in the Viral Inactivation Market

Vaccines and Therapeutics segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share in the global viral inactivation market. The highest market revenue is due to higher incidences and huge economic burden of chronic diseases such as Cancer, that demanded the inactivated vaccines along with increasing government support for pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries to invest in R&D of novel therapeutics. 

Also, the process of viral inactivation has been made mandatory step by regulatory authorities, such as the US Food and Drug Association (FDA) for investigational new drug (IND) submission in the view of safety concerns which contributes to the growth of the global viral inactivation market.
