It is predicted that Zika virus vaccines shot will available to the public by 2018.
Zika virus is an emerging viral disease that is transmitted through the bite of an infected mosquito, primarily Aedes aegypti, the same vector that transmits chikungunya, dengue and yellow fever. Zika has a similar epidemiology, clinical presentation and transmission cycle in urban environments as chikungunya and dengue, although it generally causes milder illness.
The highest risk is to pregnant women due to the connection the virus has with serious birth defects. Pregnant women who contract the virus have a high possibility of giving birth to a baby with microcephaly, a neurodevelopment disorder, where a baby is born with an unusually small head due to abnormal brain development in the womb or after birth. Complications of this disorder include seizures and developmental issues.
Due to the serious nature of global risk, the WHO has declared the microcephaly cases associated with the Zika virus a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). With no vaccines or cure the virus and its risks are expected to continue to spread. The WHO is predicting up to 4 Million Zika cases in the Americas by 2016 and the World Bank is projecting the short-term economic impact for 2016, in Latin America and the Caribbean to be about US$3.5 Billion.
With fears of Zika virus reaching new heights,Zika virus vaccines are gaining popularity. Many Government agencies and research institutes support pharmaceutical companies for the development & manufacturing of Zika virus vaccines. It is predicted that Zika virus vaccines shot will available to the public by 2018.

DPI Research’s team of researchers and analysts use a variety of research sources for making a report. Most of the data – information and statistics for our products is gathered using the secondary research by in–house team of researchers. The main objective of DPI Research’s secondary research exercise is to exhaust all sources of published information including websites of government agencies, consumer and trade associations, annual reports and accounts of companies, news articles from well–known publications and online databases like Factiva, OneSource, Thomson, Hoovers, etc. The data thus gathered is send to our team of analysts who verify that data and look for research gaps. These gaps are filled through primary research, that is, our analysts gain information from various agencies, associations and companies using customer surveys, telephonic and email interviews, etc. Finally, all the information collected using secondary and primary research is analysed and synthesized by our analysts and is presented in a report.
Industry information and data for this report has been sourced through numerous channels including publicly available information from companies’ and industry association websites. For industry sizing, segmentation and trends, apart from desk research, we have contacted industry experts and executives from various companies.
Market forecasts are done using statistical forecasting techniques based on historic performance. Statistical tools are further supplemented with qualitative parameters like industry expectation, economic drivers, new product development, customer surveys, ongoing research, etc.
All the information gathered was then analysed and synthesized by in–house team of analysts.
