Global Cancer Vaccines Market Size (2023 - 2030)

In 2022, the Global Cancer Vaccines Market was valued at $7.1 Billion and is projected to reach a market size of $22.33 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 15.4% over the forecast period of 2023 - 2030. Cancer is a malignant disease that is intensely affecting the quality of life and is a leading cause of death around the world. The increasing number of cancer cases, rising investments and government funding in developing cancer vaccines and technological developments in the health care sector are a few factors driving the growth of the Cancer Vaccine market.



Cancer is one of the leading causes of death across the world, it has profoundly impacted the quality of life of people of all ethnicities and economic backgrounds. As per a report by World Health Organization (WHO), around 9.6 million deaths reported across the globe were due to cancer, in 2018.According to a study done by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in December 2020, one out of every five individuals will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, with one out of every eight men and one out of every eleven women dying from it.The research also stated that the number of cancer patients rose from 18 million in 2018 to around 19.3 million in 2020 and cancer-related death was recorded at 10 million. With this rate of growing cases, the prevention of cancer is one of the most significant challenges. The cancer diagnosis and treatment strategies have improved over the years due to advancements in medical and healthcare technology. Many private and public-funded research organizations are constantly working on the development of vaccines that may cure cancer.

Cancer vaccines have shown great potential in both preventive and therapeutic ways as it plays a vital role in strengthening the immune system to fight against cancer. It acts as a biological response modifier and targets the infectious cells that cause cancer through the production of antibodies. The increasing number of cancer cases has resulted in private and government agencies focusing more on the development of vaccines. It has led to a rise in investment related to the research and development of cancer vaccines which is driving the growth of the Cancer Vaccine market. The market's development is limited, however, by strict regulatory procedures and the delayed approval rate of newly produced vaccines by various agencies throughout the world.


The pandemic has significantly affected the cancer vaccine market in terms of growth. In early 2020, the COVID-19 disease started to spread worldwide, millions of people worldwide have been infected with the COVID-19 infection, and major countries across the world shifted their focus in curbing the widespread of the disease, which resulted in the delay of prevention, detection, and treatment of other chronic conditions, like cancer. The lockdown imposed by the government of several countries has slowed the cancer vaccine production and the import and export of raw materials and finished products. This has resulted in a negative impact on the growth of the cancer vaccine market. However, in the upcoming years, the market is expected to bounce back and gain momentum due to the relaxation of restrictions and restarting of the R&D activities and clinical trials related to cancer vaccines. All these factors are working as proponents for the growth of the cancer vaccine market rise during the forecast period.


Increased government support and investment in the development of cancer vaccines, as well as technological advancements in cancer vaccines, will propel the market growth

An increase in consumption of tobacco and alcohol, a rise in unhealthy and sedentary lifestyles and environmental conditions are contributing to the rise of cancer cases. Other factors like rising in the elderly population, increased awareness in patients regarding cancer therapy, the surge in cancer vaccine usage coupled with other therapies and an increase in investments from private and government funding in the research and development of cancer vaccines have also created a positive trend in the market. Furthermore, technological advancements in healthcare sectors have led to the development of new cancer vaccines. The rapid urbanization resulting in rising in health care services and expenditure, and increased adoption of preventive and therapeutic vaccines are the major factors that drive the growth of the market.

The rising number of cancer cases is a major element driving the market for cancer vaccines

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), one out of every five people will develop cancer throughout their lifetime, with one out of every eight men and one out of every eleven women dying from it by December 2020. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the global cancer prevalence will increase to 19.3 million cases and 10 million deaths bythe year 2020 and ahead, up from roughly 18 million cases in 2018. One of the most crucial challenges, given this expanding burden, is cancer prevention. Cancer vaccines are vital in the immune system's maintenance because they act as biological response modifiers.Cancer vaccines work by producing antibodies against infectious pathogens that can cause cancer.


During the forecast period, the high cost of cancer treatment is likely to stymie the growth of the worldwide cervical cancer vaccines market

Treatment of cancer is quite expensive. The average cost of treatment can be as high as USD 150000.During the projected period, the global cancer vaccines market is expected to be hampered by the high cost of treatment for cancer. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the cost of the most common cervical cancer therapy in 2017 ranged from USD 368 to USD 11,400, depending on the type of facility and treatment, as a result, creates more financial burden on the individual suffering from malignant disease.

The global cancer vaccines market's growth is hampered by severe regulatory concerns, longer vaccine manufacturing timelines, and the availability of alternative therapies

When compared to other alternative therapeutic medications, cancer vaccinations are considered a newer therapy and are not widely used.factors including strict regulations regarding product approval by various government agencies across the world, long time in manufacturing of vaccines and rising consumer demand for inexpensive products act as a major restraint to the market growth.
