Global characteristics of the rabies biologics market in 2017.


ABSTRACT: In 2017, the World Health Organization, the World Organisation for Animal Health, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the Global Alliance for Rabies control developed a strategic plan to end human rabies deaths by 2030. A survey for manufacturing capacity and product characteristics of rabies biologics was conducted to inform this process. Twenty-three of 42 manufacturers, responded, giving a market capacity for 2017 of 90 million vials for human vaccines, 2.5 million vials for rabies immunoglobulins, 2 million vials for monoclonal antibodies and 181 million vials for dog vaccines. Production capacity could be increased by many manufacturers but was limited by country demand, lack of long-term planning and restricted market expansion. Should countries implement national rabies elimination programmes where biologic needs are forecasted and production lead times respected, manufacturers can meet future supply needs towards global elimination of human dog-mediated rabies deaths.
