The global Anti Venom Market Propelled by Growing Cases Of Snakebites And Scorpion Stings

Anti venoms are biologic therapeutic products used for treating venomous bites and stings from snakes, spiders, scorpions, and other venomous animals and insects. They are complex polyvalent immune globulin product derived from horse serum or sheep serum.

The global Anti Venom Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 9,229.16 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.7 % over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
Growing cases of snakebites and scorpion stings across regions such as Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa has been a major factor driving the demand for anti venoms. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 5.4 million snakebites occur each year, out of which 2.7 million cases require treatment with anti-venom and around 1,84,000 deaths occur due to those venoms. Africa, Asia and Latin America together account for about 90% of the global burden. With rising number of instances every year, the need for anti venom treatment is growing significantly which is propelling the anti venom market growth over the forecast period.
SWOT Analysis

Strength: Presence of key players with extensive R&D and production capabilities. Growing investments in research and pipeline developments of anti-venom therapeutics.

Weakness: High costs associated with anti-venom production combined with limited outbreaks increases financial risks. Scarcity of snakes required for anti-venom production.

Opportunity: Growing prevalence of snakebites in emerging economies presents an opportunity for additional treatment and prevention. Expanding healthcare infrastructure and medical coverage in developing regions.

Threats: Stringent regulations for drug development and production. Risks associated with unreliable supply of venom and anti-venoms from wild populations of snakes. Potential supply disruptions due to environmental factors.
