Vaccine World Summit 2013

Third Vaccine World Summit gathers industrial thought leaders to strength R&D capacity in India through strategic partnerships

Singapore 12 October 2012 - The Indian vaccine industry, valued at $350 million in 2011, is expected to significantly expand, reaching the size of $871million by 2016. As the global vaccine industry landscape shift towards India, the Indian government sees the need to make unprecedented changes to the growing industry. In 2009, the Indian government has declared 2010-2020 as the 鈥淒ecade of Innovations鈥, promoting innovations in the health care sector through various schemes.

As India shift from being a low cost generic vaccine suppliers into R&D power house, local vaccine manufacturers seek to fast track and gain greater access to the latest vaccine technologies through global partnerships. In the recent years, there is a significant rise in global partnerships where international and local vaccine players come together to learn and complement one another鈥檚 capabilities.

Upon the launch of the first Japanese Encephalitis vaccine in India, a collaborative effort, manufactured by Biological E based on Interncell鈥檚 technology, Thomas Linngelbach, CEO of Intercell commented that the strategic partnership is vital in this remarkable success. Dr Modi, Chairman of Cadila Pharmaceuticals also attributed the exceptionally speedy progress of their new vaccine development to their Joint Venture with Novavax, while Stanley Erck, President and CEO of Novavax trust that the collaboration will expand Novavax's vaccine development capability and add to their global manufacturing capacity.
