How prevalence in shingles in underdeveloped countries will drive the market for Shingles Vaccines?

Shingles caused by the reactivation of the Varicella Zoster virus differ on the basis of geographical regions and the prevailing climatic conditions. Varicella zoster virus has been found commonly in tropical and subtropical regions. Most tropical Asian countries do not have a vaccination routine against varicella and therefore the market for shingles vaccine can be a driver in underdeveloped countries. Individuals who are not affected with Varicella prefer to take shingles vaccine when there is a necessity.

Shingles Vaccination have been found cost-effective in developed countries, but in low and middle-income countries, people are either unaware of shingles or are inclined towards other public health priorities. Early childhood vaccination programs can reduce the incidence rates of shingles in older age. Therefore it becomes vital to add shingles vaccination programs in WHO Regional Strategic Plan for Immunization for the African region. This will reduce the burden of other chronic illnesses like postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) resulting from post shingles condition.

What are the challenges against vaccinating shingles?

Like other vaccines, the Shingles vaccine is administered to the person before exposure to the varicella Zoster virus. This induces immunity which prevents the reactivation of herpes zoster virus, causing shingles. In contrast, vaccination is directed towards persons who have previously contracted the varicella-zoster virus and already have immunity against varicella, but latent Varicella zoster virus can still reactivate and cause herpes zoster. There is a need for Zoster vaccines to be effective and act as a “therapeutic vaccine” and give prompt immune response against the reactivation of latent varicella-zoster virus in a person with pre-existing immunity to varicella zoster virus.

How was the shingles vaccine market impacted by Covid-19?

Covid-19 had both positive and negative impactS on the market. Many pharmaceutical companies were caught off guard when the pandemic made its way throughout the world.

However, GlaxoSMithKline reported high revenue in 2022 from the sales of Shingles vaccine, by almost doubling the amount to US$ 857 Mn. GSK’s demand for top selling Shingles vaccine outpaced its supply after the pandemic.

While companies like Moderna grabbed the opportunity from the Covid-19 pandemic and put forward all its sales, earned through the Covid-19 vaccine for the expansion of the shingles vaccine. This effort of the companies unveils how the pandemic could allow other pharmaceutical companies to seek a dominant position in the vaccine market as the Covid-19 fades.
