Due to this, the demand for vaccines and improved treatments for monkeypox has increased. In addition, according to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, the demand for the vaccine exceeds the vaccine supply in the United States. Consequently, the enormous demand for vaccines and treatments for monkeypox is anticipated to propel the global monkeypox treatment market.
Government Initiatives to Promote Market Growth
In addition, various government initiatives for the supply, distribution, and availability of anti-infective vaccines are expected to foster market expansion in the coming years. For example, the Department of Health and Human Services announced in July 2022 that it would increase the availability of vaccines by acquiring an additional 144,000 doses of the JYNNEOS vaccine for the treatment of monkeypox infection. In addition, the Health Resources and Services Administration allocated funds to expedite the distribution of JYNNEOS to the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) in order to increase the vaccination rate among the high-risk population.
In addition, government initiatives such as the U.S. Monkeypox Research Priorities, which aim to boost R&D and raise public awareness of monkeypox, are anticipated to boost growth. In addition, the United States government and its international partners are intensifying their efforts to advance monkeypox research. Infection-related research activities supported by the government include, among others, clinical and epidemiologic observational modeling and vaccine and therapeutic clinical trials. Such initiatives are anticipated to exponentially increase the demand for vaccinations in the coming years.
Active Role of FDA Motivating the Market Growth
In addition, the U.S. FDA announced in September 2022 additional measures to increase testing capacity and accessibility in response to the current outbreak. Under this initiative, the FDA is anticipated to recommend EUA requests for diagnostic tests for monkeypox and to promote diagnosis. Consequently, such initiatives are anticipated to drive market growth during the forecast period.
Ongoing regulatory approvals and EUAs contribute to market growth. For instance, in August 2022, the U.S. FDA approved emergency use authorization for the intradermal injectable JYNNEOS vaccine for healthcare professionals 18 years and older who were determined to be at a higher risk of monkeypox infection. This approval permits two intradermal injections of JYNNEOS four weeks apart.
In addition, the EMA's human medicines committee recommended in July 2022 that the indication for the smallpox vaccine IMVANEX be extended to include protection against monkeypox infection. Since its approval in 2013, IMVANEX has been regarded as a useful vaccine due to the similarities between smallpox and monkeypox. In addition, increasing R&D expenditures and the use of the smallpox vaccine as an off-label product for vaccination against monkeypox are anticipated to drive the global market.
Increasing the Vaccine's Adverse Reactions to Limit the Market Expansion
The major restraint for the global monkeypox treatment market is the increasing side effects associated with the drugs used to treat this disease; consequently, this can hinder the market's growth. Major side effects of drugs used to treat monkeypox include mild stomach upset, dry mouth, diminished concentration, and depression.
Drugs Dominate the Market by Products
In 2021, the drugs segment led the market with a share of more than 70.0%.
