Anti-Venom Market Expected to Increase at a CAGR 6.5 % through 2017 to 2023

Market Research Future adds the “Anti-Venom Market Research Report – Forecast to 2023” report to their unique collection. It is estimated that the Anti-Venom market is expected to grow at a CAGR 6.5% during the forecast period of 2017–2023.

Market Scenario

Anti-venom is made up of hyperimmune globulins and various other proteins extracted from the serum of various animals. In the process animals have been immunized with the venom of a snake, and then proteins are extracted from it. Anti-venom is currently the cornerstone of therapy for the victims of venomous snake bites and has reduced the mortality of this condition. It can be species-specific, regional, or polyvalent. For instance, anti-venom directed against coral snake venom is regenerated by immunizing horses with venom from the eastern coral snake i.e. Micrurus fulvius. The use of anti-venom is associated with various adverse reactions and so is given to only those victims who develop local, systemic, or laboratory evidence of envenoming. The use of epinephrine, corticosteroids, and antihistamines is also recommended before anti-venom administration as it helps to reduce the occurrence and severity of acute or delayed hypersensitivity reactions which may occur in 20 to 90% of cases.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), snake antivenom immunoglobulins is the only specific treatment for envenoming by snakebites. It is also estimated that nearly 4.5 to 5.4 million people are bitten by snakes in a year, and around 1.8 to 2.7 million out of them develop clinical illness after a snakebite.
