Global BCG Vaccine Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global BCG vaccine market is predicted to reach USD 61.86 Billion by 2028 from USD 48.24 billion in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2023 to 2028.

Tuberculosis can result in death, due to which the adoption and demand for BCG vaccines have grown significantly over the last several years. The need for BCG vaccine is more in regions where TB incidence is higher, and access to TB treatments is less. The BCG vaccine is also believed to help fight against other infectious diseases. However, there is no concrete evidence to say that.

Albert Calmette and Camille Guérin produced the original strain of BCG in 1924 at the Pasteur Institute. BCG vaccine is used against Tuberculosis. Tuberculosis is a severe infection, which causes by the lungs, sometimes in other parts of the body. Vaccine Dose is given to healthy babies after birth because, at that age, they are at high risk of getting immunized. The Bacille Calmette-Guerin vaccine is one of the most widely used current vaccines. It is a part of the national childhood immunization program. The BCG vaccine included types that are Immune BCG and Therapy BCG. BCG vaccine is also used to treat other mycobacterial infections, such as Buruli ulcer diseases. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that TB caused to 10million people and claimed 1.6 million lives in 2017.


The growing incidence of TB and increasing support from various governments in favor of the BCG vaccine are expected to boost market growth.

The governments of various countries have supported the market for BCG vaccines in a variety of ways. Several governments have taken numerous measures to spread awareness regarding the importance of BCG vaccines and promote the accessibility to the vaccines in low- and middle-income countries, especially where TB is more prevalent. In addition, many governments have invested significant amounts in the R&D, distribution, and administration of BCG vaccines. Such factors are expected to share a favorable impact on market growth.

In addition, the growing adoption of technological advancements is predicted to fuel the growth rate of the BCG vaccine market. Technological developments have helped to improve the vaccine’s effectiveness and develop new and advanced vaccines. Furthermore, the increasing awareness among people regarding the severity of TB and the importance of vaccination is expected to promote the growth of the BCG vaccines market. The demand for BCG vaccine is increasing daily, with the rising birth rate population. Also, the spread rate of Tuberculosis in the adult stage of the community will boost the demand for BCG vaccines in the coming days. Therefore, stage-wise vaccines for Tuberculosis have a higher need in the future. The increasing epidemic of diseases in the future can decide the rising demand for the BCG Vaccine and BCG vaccine pipeline evolution, which will influence supply and demand dynamics. 


The issues associated with the continuous supply of BCG vaccine, the scarcity of skilled professionals, and the lack of proper healthcare infrastructure in some countries are anticipated to impact the market growth during the forecast period. In addition, underdeveloped and developing countries are suffering from a shortage of BCG vaccines, which is expected to inhibit the growth rate of the worldwide market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global BCG vaccine market:

COVID-19 has disrupted the global economy drastically. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 as a pandemic that has spread to around 203 countries globally. Lockdown has affected many industries in several ways; some industries got impacted badly, and some gained profits. The Bacillus Calmette-Gurin (BCG) Vaccine Market has seen some profits. The BCG vaccine is used to prevent Tuberculosis (TB), but some researchers have announced that the BCG vaccine can be used for COVID treatment, fuelling the market. But the BCG vaccine is not a perfect cure for COVID; it is just used as an immediate medication to prevent deaths. All the COVID-affected older people got vaccinated in countries like India, which propelled the BCG vaccine market. Few countries have done clinical trials on humans to see the BCG vaccine's effectiveness, boosting market growth. These factors helped the BCG vaccine market grow during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Key Players in the market have done a great job by increasing BCG vaccine production during the pandemic.

This research report on the global BCG vaccine market has been segmented and sub-segmented into the following categories and calculated market size and forecast for each segment until 2027.

BCG Vaccine Market - By Demographics:

  • Pediatrics (0-18 years)        
  • Adults (19-35 years)            

Based on demography, Paediatrics is a clear market leader accounting for more than three-quarters of the market share, and is likely to gain even more in the forecast period. BCG vaccine is infused in children in many countries after the months of lactation. In addition, the vaccine is compulsory for infants in countries where there is a prevalence of TB. Hence, the pediatrics segment leads the market in all countries. In addition, the increasing funding from various governments to conduct R&D around the BCG vaccine and a growing number of awareness programs to promote awareness is expected to fuel the segment’s growth rate. Furthermore, the rising birth rate worldwide is expected to contribute to segmental growth.

BCG Vaccine Market - By Product Type:

  • Immune BCG         
  • Therapy BCG          

Based on product type, the immune BCG segment is expected to lead the market during the forecast period. It is because BCG vaccination has become mandatory in most countries as part of the national immunization program. Moreover, the vaccine's efficacy is reduced if not administered in infancy. Therefore, the usage of this vaccine is highest in Kenya. Polio and hepatitis B vaccines are usually administered alongside it.

BCG Vaccine Market - By End User:

  • Pediatrics 
  • Adults       

BCG Vaccine Market - By Application:

  • Home        
  • Commercial       

Based on the application, the commercial segment leads the market, which can be attributed to administering the vaccine in hospitals to infants. Governments are also procuring vaccine candidates on a large scale. The commercial settings are equipped with the latest medical equipment and trained healthcare professionals, due to which the preference of people to have the BCG vaccination at hospitals and clinics has increased.

However, the home segment accounted for a relatively smaller share of the worldwide market in 2022 and is expected to grow consistently during the forecast period owing to the growing preference from people to have the vaccination from the comfort of their homes.

BCG Vaccine Market - By Region:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Latin America
  • Middle East and Africa

The APAC BCG Vaccine Market accounted for the major share of the worldwide market in 2021. The APAC market is also expected to have promising occupancy in the global market during the forecast period. The incidence of TB is high among the countries of the APAC region, which is one of the major factors contributing to the regional market growth. The presence of a large population and growing birth rate in the APAC countries such as India and China are expected to demand a greater number of BCG vaccines, which is expected to promote regional market growth. In addition, the growing number of vaccination initiatives from the APAC governments is predicted to boost the market’s growth rate in APAC.

Furthermore, the availability of increased funding to conduct R&D of BCG vaccines and robust vaccine storage and distribution networks across the APAC region further propel the regional market growth. At the same time, Asia Pacific is expected to grow with the highest CAGR due to TB eradication campaigns in developing countries. As a result, Asia Pacific is the second most lucrative market for BCG vaccines; due to tropical lying countries like India, Japan, and Malaysian countries, TB prevalence is more in this region; around 40% of the world's TB population lies in this region. As a result, this provides ample scope for the BCG vaccine market to expand in this region.

The North American BCG Vaccine Market is a potential market worldwide and is anticipated to showcase a healthy CAGR in the coming years. The regional market's growth can be attributed to sophisticated healthcare and government policies toward eradicating TB. Though the prevalence of TB is less in this region, proper care and vaccination are taking place. Eastern EU region with Germany has more TB prevalence rate, and there is more market for the BCG vaccine market.  

In the Latin American BCG Vaccine Market, countries like Brazil and Argentina are promising markets for the BCG vaccine market, as the TB prevalence rate in these regions is high.

The Middle East and Africa BCG Vaccine Market, especially the African continent, is a breeder house for Tuberculosis, and many countries, along with WHO, have framed many TB eradication programs. Hence, they provide a large market for the BCG vaccine. In the Middle East, Gulf countries have framed TB eradication programs to secure the people with transmission from Africa; these countries also contribute to the market to expand further in this region.
