It is made by fractionating the blood of the donor (horse or sheep), which is hyper immunized with snake venom. These products are available in either lyophilized or liquid forms. Anti-venom is the only effective therapy against snake bites and they also save patients from cell and tissue necrosis, thus helping save vital organs.

Market Dynamics

The incidence of animal bite such as snake, and scorpion is high. High incidence of poisonous animal bite is also expected to be a major factor driving demand for anti-venom in the near future.

For instance, according to the data published by World Health Organization (WHO), in 2018, it was estimated that globally, the incidence of snakebite is around 4.5 to 5.4 million bites from venomous and non-venomous snakes, out of which around 1.8 million to 2.7 million cases of snakebite are envenoming.

Increasing initiatives by government and various other organizations to increase awareness about snake bite and its treatment is further expected to support adoption of anti-venoms during forecast period. For instance, World Health Organization (WHO), in June 2017, added snakebite to its priority list of neglected tropical disease, which would result in more focused effort to prevent death from snakebite, thus boosting growth of the anti-venom market.

Robust pipeline and frequent approval of novel anti-venom is expected to drive growth of the global anti-venom market

University of Arizona is developing polyvalent F(ab)2 Equine, an anti-venom indicated for the treatment against the North American coral snake (Micrurus) bite. Currently (2018), the product is under phase 3 clinical trial and is expected to get approval in the near future. Presence of such new products in pipeline is expected to support the global anti-venom market growth over forecast period.

Approvals and launches of novel drugs in key regions are also expected to be a major factor to drive anti-venom market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in October 2018, Silanes Laboratories received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Anavip, an anti-venom against the bite of snakes of the Crotalus family, which includes the rattlesnake. In 2017, Rare Disease Therapeutics, Inc. partner of Silanes Laboratories, launched Anavip in the U.S. market.

High price of anti-venom and treatment procedure with anti-venoms are expected to be the major factor hindering the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, according to the data published by World Health Organization (WHO) in March 2018, in sub-Saharan Africa in 2010 and 2011, the direct cost of anti-venom alone ranged from US$ 55 to US$ 640 for an effective treatment, using recommended doses, with the average cost being US$ 124.7. Such high prices are not easily affordable by population in emerging economies.

Key players operating in the anti-venom market include BTG plc. Laboratorios Silanes, CSL Limited, Pfizer, Inc., Merck & Co., Inc., Bharat Serums and Vaccines Limited, Haffkine Bio-Pharmaceutical Corporation Ltd., Vins Bioproducts Limited, Incepta Pharmaceuticals Ltd., and Rare Disease Therapeutics Inc.

Various companies, regulatory bodies, and private organizations are working together in order to spread awareness regarding poisonous animal bite and use of anti-venom’s against it. Hence, key players in the market can strategically collaborate with organizations and can work to spread awareness regarding snake bite treatment. For instance, in November 2015, the Health Action International (HAI) and Global Snakebite Initiatives (GSI) partnership took initiative to promote a Member State side-event on snakebite at the World Health Assembly in May 2016, aiming to raise awareness of the global snakebite burden, amplify existing, but underused health systems and scientific innovations.

Asia Pacific is expected to hold dominant position in the global anti-venom market owing to high incidence of snake bites

Asia Pacific anti-venom market is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period, owing to high incidence of snake bites in countries such as India and Bangladesh. For instance, according to the data published by Journal of the Association of Physicians of India, in 2017, around 50,000 people die in India annually, due to venomous snake bites.

However, in rural areas of key regions such as India, Bangladesh, and Nepal the adoption rate of anti-venom is quite low as people in these areas adopt traditional treatment outside healthcare facilities over anti-venom. For instance, according to the data published by Journal of Pharmacology & Clinical Toxicology, in June 2018, in Bangladesh only 3% of snake bite victims visit hospital for their treatment
