Current Scenario of the Global VACCINE ADJUVANT MARKET

The global vaccine adjuvants market comprises veterinary and human adjuvants, which are used to increase the efficiency of vaccines. In addition, vaccine adjuvants are accredited with assisting in boosting the immune response in the host post-vaccination. Immunologists and infectious disease specialists are in covenant over the advantageous uses of adjuvants in vaccines today. Notably, to decrease the number of doses, surge the probability of a continuous immunological response, and reduce the overall prevalence of the disease. In addition, the immune response to vaccine antigens has been improved with the use of adjuvants for decades. They recover the body's immune reaction and frequently allow fewer deactivated viruses or bacteria to be used in a vaccine. However, the final vaccine product may present more than one adjuvant.


The growing demand for vaccines and the emergence of new diseases propel the vaccine adjuvants market growth.

Across the world, the consumption of vaccines is increasing as it is one of the effective ways to be protected from various diseases. Various governments have been conducting numerous programs to promote vaccination among people, and the awareness levels among people regarding the advantages associated with vaccinations have improved in recent days, which is anticipated to result in the growth of the vaccine adjuvants market. In addition, the growing prevalence of infectious diseases and the introduction of new diseases are promoting the market’s growth rate. For instance, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has increased the demand for vaccines and adjuvants to protect against these diseases.

In addition, the growing incidence of infectious and zoonotic diseases, growing focus on vaccination programs by numerous government bodies, and rising focus on enhanced and long-term immunization besides current and emerging diseases are accelerating the growth rate of the global vaccine adjuvant market. Furthermore, growing R&D expenditure and attainments, associations, and agreements by market participants are other notable factors driving the market's growth. Furthermore, advancements in adjuvant formulations, the growing adoption rate of recombinant subunits, and synthetic vaccines boost the global adjuvant market growth. The growing demand for vaccine adjuvants and untouched market potential in developing countries offer numerous growth possibilities to the adjuvant vaccine manufacturers and key players in the market.


However, side effects associated with the adjuvants and high toxicity adjuvants are the primary restraint to the global vaccine adjuvant market. High costs associated with adjuvant-based research and established protection are restraining market growth. The denying effect of adjuvants' toxicity on the vaccine's manufacturing cost and protective profiles inhibits the growing market demand. The adverse effects of adjuvants and high-toxicity adjuvants are factors impeding the vaccine adjuvant market growth during the forecasting timeline. Moreover, insufficient knowledge among people and inadequate healthcare facilities hampers the growing market rate. Low research activities in its development also hinder the market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Vaccine Adjuvant Market

During the pandemic, the lockdown restricted to import and export activities. The COVID-19 pandemic crisis is projected to impact market growth positively, majorly. According to a research article in Nature Reviews Immunology 2020, aluminum-based vaccine adjuvants offer a glide path to influence high levels of neutralizing antibodies identified as a basis of the safety allocated by the COVID-19 vaccines. For instance, in May 2020, GSK considered generating 1 billion doses of its pandemic vaccine adjuvant system in 2021 to develop multiple adjuvanted COVID-19 vaccine candidates. India's government (GOI) has permitted INR 100 crores from PM-CARES funds to establish the COVID-19 vaccine. Presently, nearly 25 vaccine development work is continuous, associated with industry-academia collaboration. Moreover, in April 2020, China announced a surplus funding of USD 30 million to the World Health Organization (WHO) for handling the COVID-19 pandemic. Considering the reduced impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global vaccine adjuvant market is anticipated to register a better CAGR during the forecast period.

Vaccine Adjuvant Market  By Type

Based on type, the carbohydrate adjuvants segment accounted for a significant market share and is anticipated to grow further during the forecast period.

The aluminum salts segment is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR during the forecast period due to rising innovation and the introduction of particulate adjuvants. Aluminum salts vaccine has been growing continuously in the market for the last two decades due to the safety of cancer patients. Also, new adjuvants have come up with innovative facilities such as the more muscular battle to disease and having a more shelf life than others due to the easier availability of aluminum salts in nature and the high adoption of particulate vaccines.

Vaccine Adjuvant Market  By Route of administration

Based on the administration route, the Intramuscular segment dominates the vaccine adjuvants market because this is the fastest and most highly effective Route. On the other hand, the intradermal route segment is likely to contribute a significant market share as it takes more time for absorption and action. 

Vaccine Adjuvant Market  By Mechanism of Action

Based on the mechanism of action, the immune stimulants segment dominates the adjuvant vaccine market owing to the high demand for adjuvants for stimulating antigens to the immune system.


Geographically, the North American vaccine adjuvant market led the market in 2023, and the region's domination is likely to continue throughout the forecast period. The rapidly growing geriatric population and rising government funding around R&D of vaccines across North American countries are propelling the adjuvant vaccine market in the North American region. In addition, the growing innovations, increasing product portfolios of key players, and increasing investments to conduct R&D are further favoring the vaccine adjuvant market in the North American region.

The European vaccine adjuvant market had a substantial share of the global market in 2023 and is estimated to progress considerably during the forecast period owing to an increase in patients affected by diseases like cancer and other infections. Furthermore, favorable reimbursement policies have been notable factors propelling the regional market growth.
