Zika Virus is Sweeping Across Central and South America, and is Likely to Soon Enter the US.

Wednesday 24 February 2016, Amsterdam

Market Research Report Press Release A new report, now available on ASDReports, the Zika virus outbreak that is current spreading through Central and South America. These insights appear in The Zika Virus Report: Implications of the Rapid Spread of Zika with a Focus on the Infectious Disease Diagnostics Market and Human Vaccines Market, published February 2016. Visiongain is a business information provider based in London, UK.

The Zika Virus Report: Implications of the Rapid Spread of Zika with a Focus on the Infectious Disease Diagnostics Market and Human Vaccines Market examines the current effects of the Zika outbreak, as well as the structure, reproduction, and outbreak history of the virus. Evidence is mounting regarding the serious complications that can accompany Zika infection, and these are explored in depth in this report.

Efforts are underway to develop new diagnostic tools for use in diagnosing Zika virus infection at point-of-care facilities, as well as to develop a vaccine to combat the spread of the disease. To support the case for this, the global infectious disease diagnostics market is forecast from 2016 to 2026, as is the global human vaccines market. The companies engaged in these efforts and their potential products are also outlined.

The spread of Zika virus could have serious social and economic impacts, including issues regarding contraception and abortion. Tourism is a major driver of economic growth in a number of countries that are either experiencing active transmission of Zika, or are at serious risk of doing so. The effects the virus could have on this industry are far reaching, some of which could result in further exacerbation of the outbreak. Using our experience and sources, we have compiled a comprehensive report on the potential impacts of this virus.

Jack Evans, a pharmaceutical and medical devices industry analyst in visiongain, said: “As Zika virus continues to spread across the Central and South America, evidence mounts for the correlation between Zika and microcephaly, as well as Zika and GBS. The rapid spread of Zika coupled with possible complications and imminent entrance into as yet unaffected regions has prompted major pharmaceutical companies to begin vaccine development for the virus. However, vaccine development remains in the early stages with having only entered preclinical trials. The virus could have a significant social and economic impact, with tourism an important regional industry. The Summer Olympics are taking place in Brazil in 2016, and Zika virus may have an effect on attendance numbers.”
