Market Overview

The major factors for the growth of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine market include the approval of new HPV vaccines, and increasing initiatives by government & private organizations for early screening & vaccination.

The rising government initiatives are expected to propel the overall growth of the market over the forecast period. Also, some of the organizations are focusing on creating a proper supply of products. As per the data published by UNICEF in 2018, the UNICEF human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine procured over 12.9 million doses in the period 2013-2017. Furthermore, UNICEF procured 84% doses for countries supported by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance (Gavi), and 16% doses for self-financing middle-income countries (MICs). However, the HPV vaccine supply through UNICEF is currently not sufficient to meet the increased needs, which it projects could reach 50 million doses in 2019. Such types of initiatives are expected to boost the growth of the market.
