Key Market Overview:

Meningococcal Vaccines Market was worth USD 3.11 Billion in 2021, and the market is estimated to witness a growth of USD 5.85 Billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 7.28% during the forecast period (2022-2030).

Meningococcal disease is a serious bacterial infection that causes meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord) and sepsis (blood infection) and further leads to permanent damage or even death. However, several types of meningococcal vaccines exist to offer protection against different types of meningococcal bacteria. Moreover, the most common types of meningococcal vaccines are conjugate meningococcal vaccines and polysaccharide meningococcal vaccines. Certain people are at increased risk of getting meningococcal disease, including infants, adolescents, and young adults between 16-23 years of age, and microbiologists working with isolates of N. meningitides. For all the above-listed reasons safe and effective vaccines are available worldwide for the prevention of invasive meningococcal disease along with the presence of primary care immunization service providers for facilitating the widespread uptake of meningococcal vaccines. Furthermore, MenACWY vaccine is also provided for children aged 12 months and adolescents under the National Immunization Program.

According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), individuals of age 18 or above are administered PREVNAR 20, Pfizer’s Pneumococcal 20-valent Conjugate vaccine to help prevent invasive meningococcal disease. Additionally, the World Health Organization recommends that the MenACWY vaccines should be administered to all children and adolescents, typically at 11-12 years of age, with a booster dose around 16 years of age.

Geographically, North America is expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. Factors such as the high adoption rate of meningococcal vaccines in the U.S. and Canada, increasing government initiatives to promote vaccination, and the growing awareness about the meningococcal disease among people are expected to drive the growth of the market in the region. In addition to this, North American Vaccine Inc (NAVI) has launched a conjugate polysaccharide vaccine for the prevention of meningitis caused by group C meningococcal bacteria which is also anticipated to bolster market growth.

Market Dynamics:


  • The growth of the meningococcal vaccine market is being propelled by the availability of a diverse range of vaccines for individuals of varying ages. This provides increased options for individuals to protect themselves from serious and life-threatening consequences of meningococcal disease, thereby driving demand for the product.
  • The expansion of the meningococcal vaccine market is being fueled by the growing global awareness of the meningococcal disease and the increased efforts by governments to promote and implement vaccination programs. This heightened focus on preventative measures against the disease is driving demand and contributing to the growth of the meningococcal vaccine market.


  • The high cost of meningococcal vaccines presents a restraint to patients, limiting their accessibility and hindering the growth of the market. This economic barrier is a significant factor that restricts the expansion of the meningococcal vaccine market.
  • The risks associated with the vaccine reaction such as redness or soreness where the shot is given along with the pain, headache, or tiredness in case of meningococcal ACWY vaccination is expected to hamper the growth of the market.


The implementation of a well-organized and transparent process for incorporating the MenACV vaccine into national immunization programs is poised to create significant growth opportunities for the market. Furthermore, ensuring the availability of a rolling buffer stock to address unexpected shipment delays and changes in demand is also expected to drive market growth in the future. Proactively establishing a buffer stock before launching the vaccine will further contribute to the growth potential of the market.

Market Segmentation:

By Disease Type:

Depending on the disease type, the market is separated into meningitis, septicemia, pneumonia, meningococcemia, and others. Meningitis is considered to be the dominant segment as this is the most serious and life-threatening form of meningococcal disease. Moreover, meningitis disease results in severe complications such as brain damage, amputations, and death. Therefore, meningitis is likely to be a significant contributor to the overall market share of the meningococcal vaccines market.

Moreover, septicemia and pneumonia are anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period as both are serious and life-threatening forms of meningococcal disease and are also common indications for meningococcal vaccination.

By Vaccine Type:

Based on the vaccine type, the market is divided into polysaccharide vaccines, conjugate vaccines, combination vaccines, and others. Conjugate vaccines is the dominant segment and contribute to the largest share of the market as this vaccine is widely adopted by most countries in the vaccination schedule.
