Fish Vaccine Market

Fish Vaccine Market Is Estimated To Witness High Growth Owing To Rising Aquaculture Industry


The Fish Vaccine market is estimated to be valued at US$ 265.4 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period 2023-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
Fish vaccines are used for the prevention of infectious diseases in fish farming and aquaculture. They help boost fish production and protect farmed fish from pathogens. Common diseases for which vaccines are available include Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia (VHS), Infectious Hematopoietic Necrosis (IHN), Yersiniosis, Aeromonosis, and Enteric Septicemia of Catfish. Vaccines are delivered through injection, immersion, or oral administration depending on the specific vaccine.

Market Dynamics:
The rising demand for seafood, growing commercial aquaculture industry, and growing fish farming globally are key drivers propelling the growth of the fish vaccine market. Commercial aquaculture production is increasing worldwide to meet the rising demand for seafood. According to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization, aquaculture production grew by over 35% from 2012 to 2018 globally. The increasing fish farming activities will necessitate preventive measures to protect farmed fish from infectious diseases, thereby boosting demand for fish vaccines. Furthermore, increasing R&D efforts by biotechnology companies for development of advanced and effective vaccines is also fueling market growth. However, stringent regulations for the approval of new fish vaccines and the high costs associated with vaccines development may restrain the market to a certain extent.
