Fish Vaccine Market Size – Reach $617.38 Million, Globally, by 2030 - Exclusive Report by The Insight Partners

Global fish vaccine market is growing at a CAGR of 7.1% during 2022–2030.

Pune, India, Oct. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vaccination is a quick, efficient, and preventative method of disease prevention for fish. Through the administration of vaccines, a protective immune response is induced in an animal during vaccination.

According to our new research study on “Fish Vaccine Market Size and Forecasts (2020 - 2030), Global and Regional Share, Trends, and Growth Opportunity Analysis Report Coverage: By Vaccine Type (Inactivated Vaccines, Live Vaccines, Subunit Vaccines, Recombinant Vector Vaccine, and Others), Application (Bacterial, Viral, and Parasitic), Route of Administration (Injected, Immersion, and Oral), Species (Salmon, Trout, Tilapia, and Others), and Geography (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South & Central America),” the global fish vaccine market size was valued at $355.88 million in 2022 and is projected to reach $617.38 million by 2030. It is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% during 2022–2030.

Global Fish Vaccine Market: Segmental Overview
Based on application, the fish vaccine market is segmented into bacterial, viral, and parasitic. In 2022, the bacterial segment held the largest market share and is expected to grow at the fastest rate during 2022–2030. In dense populations of cultured food or aquarium fish, bacterial diseases are frequent. Poor water quality, organic loading of the aquatic environment, improper handling and transport of fish, significant temperature changes, hypoxia, or other stressful conditions are frequently linked to a predisposition to such outbreaks. Most bacterial pathogens that affect fish are gram-negative and aerobic rods.

Major Bacterial Diseases in Fish:

Bacterial Disease/PathogenMajor Fish Species Affected
Vibriosis (Listonella anguillarum and V. spp.)Salmonids Cod/halibut Sea bass/bream Amberjack/yellowtail
Coldwater vibriosis (Vibrio salmonicida)Salmonids

Streptococciosis (Streptococcus iniae) (Streptococcus phocae)Tilapia Asian sea bass Salmonids

Fish contains all of the major animal parasite species, and even a healthy wild fish frequently has high parasite burdens. While parasites with indirect life cycles frequently use fish as intermediate hosts, parasites with direct life cycles can be significant pathogens of cultured fish. The knowledge of specific fish hosts greatly facilitates the identification of parasites with pronounced host and tissue specificity. In contrast, a few parasites are recognized due to their common occurrence and lack of host specificity. Fish populations are seriously threatened by parasitic illnesses such as Ichthyophonus, Nanophyetus salmincola, and whirling diseases.

Increasing Government Initiatives Fuel Global Fish Vaccine Market Growth:
Aquaculture grows exponentially due to the high demand for seafood and decreasing annual catch of wild fish. Thus, governments are taking initiatives to improve and support the growth of the aquacultural industry. Following are a few recent initiatives:

In February 2021, the Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research (FFAR) funded US$ 790,326 to create a delivery system for a vaccine that can help stop the tilapia lake virus and other diseases from spreading in the aquaculture sector.

In January 2022, Benchmark Animal Health, a leading aquaculture biotechnology company, and Cermaq Group AS, a world-leading salmon farming company, announced that they had received US$ 0.4 million (NOK 4.2 million) in funding from the Norwegian Research Council to support a collaborative research project to develop a vaccine against Tenacibaculum—an ulcerative disease that results in high mortality rates in various marine species.

In January 2023, the European Commission funded US$ 7.88 million to the PerformFISH project to explore and tackle the major causes of stagnancy in the Mediterranean Marine Fish Farming (MMFF) sector. The PerformFISH has been making efforts to manage challenges associated with sea bass and sea bream in Mediterranean aquaculture.

The European Union (EU), in the framework of Horizon 2020, funded Mediterranean Aquaculture Integrated Development (Media)—a four-year Research and Innovation Action (RIA) project that was jointly approved with PerformFISH under the program SFS-23-2016—to improve the technical performance of Mediterranean aquaculture. MedAID aims to improve the sustainability and competitiveness of the Mediterranean marine fish-farming sector throughout the value chain. Thus, an increase in government initiatives to support developments in the aquaculture industry drives the fish vaccine market growth.
