Market Trends and Drivers

Growing investments by government will augment the overall market progression

Growing investments by government in R&D that encourages pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies to boost the production of vaccines will propel the biodefense market share. Increasing global biological threats has created need for funds to support the R&D activities. Government authorities’ stock large amounts of vaccines and bio-threat detection devices to combat against the deliberate virus attacks. For instance, as per the FDA FY 2023 budget, investment of USD 1.6 billion over five years has been allocated for biodefence vaccines and development of biodefense diagnostic devices. Therefore, growing investments in biodefense enables biopharmaceutical companies to manufacture technologically advanced biothreat detection devices that will significantly drive the industry outlook.

Market Restraints and Challenges

KPO industry faces challenges like shortage of manpower and knowledge issues concerns for data security and poor infrastructure, and rise in real-state costs. All of these factors combined tend to be huge challenges for the industry to grow and prosper. For example, the KPO industry requires professionals with the right skill-sets and domain knowledge but there’s a shortage of such professionals especially in developing economies

Global Biodefense Market Segmental Overview

The report analyses the global Biodefense Market based on product, and region

Global Biodefense Market by Product

By product, the biodefense market is segmented into anthrax, botulism, smallpox, radiation/nuclear, and other products. The anthrax segment held the largest market share of xx% in 2022 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period. Based on products, the market is segmented into anthrax, smallpox, botulism, radiation/ nuclear, and others. Bacillus anthracis is a gram-positive bacterium that causes anthrax. It is one of the most likely to be used potential weapons for a bioterrorist attack. These spores are mostly preferred as they can be easily released into the environment by placing them in food, water, powder, and sprays.

They can last for a long time in the environment and are easily found in nature (soil, plants, or water). According to NCBI, anthrax bacteria is categorized as a tier-1 biological agent as it can be easily transmitted from one person to another and holds the potential for a major public health tragedy. Countermeasures against anthrax remain one of the key areas for countermeasures. It has received major funding for vaccine development. This includes project bioshield, which has witnessed over USD 50 billion in funding since the September 11 attack in the United States. Many companies have their vaccine for anthrax in clinical trials.

The other product segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment with a 6.2% CAGR over the forecast period. It includes viruses like include viral hemorrhagic fever, brucellosis, cholera, influenza, plague, food poisoning, tularemia, Zika, Ebola, and many others. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has a Vaccine Research Centre (VRC), which is working on VHF vaccines since 2003, especially against Ebola and Marburg viruses. The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to develop a vaccine against tularemia. Tularemia being highly infectious and at times fatal in nature is a potential option for a bioweapon.

Recently many countries are witnessing rising infection cases due to the zika and ebola viruses and therefore many companies are competing to develop its vaccine. MVA-BN Filo, manufactured by Bavarian Nordic, is a vaccine against two filoviruses, Ebola, and Marbur diseases, and is currently under phase 3 clinical trials and has collaborated with the U.S. NIAID for the same.

Geographical Analysis of Global Biodefense Market

Region-wise, it is studied across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. North America dominated the Biodefense market capturing an xx% market share in 2022 and is expected to showcase a significant CAGR in the forecast period. This is attributed to the presence of high federal funding, technological advancements, and growing awareness among the population. The presence of major players in this region is also a favorable prospect for the biodefense market in 2022. Based on Federal Research and Development (R&D) in the fiscal year 2017, out of the total federal R&D funding that was received by eight federal agencies, 96.3% of it was received by the Department of Defense (39.3%) and the Department of Health and Human Services (27.3%) combined accounting for more than two-thirds of all federal R&D funding. This percentage of funding to DoD is proposed to increase to 48.4% in 2019. The introduction of the National Biodefense Strategy in 2018, with the purpose to detect and contain biothreats at their source. The policy also aims to support and promote biomedical innovation, and improve emergency response in case of biological outbreaks. These are some of the factors contributing to the high market growth in the region.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR of 9.1% over the forecast period due to surging investments in R&D. The growing significance of biodefense, and the rising threat of harmful biological materials that engender emergencies is driving the market growth. Australia and Japan are two of the most mature Asia Pacific biodefense industry as it has well-established vaccine production facilities in the country. This coupled with the presence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure in the country contributes to its market position. Countries like India and China are rigorously expanding their R&D capabilities to cater to biological threats in the future. China is the second country after the U.S to spend the largest percentage of its GDP on R&D. These are the factors that are expected to boost the biodefense industry in the region.
