In 2019, 177.8 mmt of fish were produced globally. Despite such huge production in aquaculture, the bacterial disease is a major issue, and is causing multibillion-dollar losses annually. In developing countries, fish diseases often spread quickly between small-scale aquaculture farms. Rising prevalence of infectious diseases such as bacterial diseases, viral diseases, and parasitic and fungal diseases amongst fish species remains a global issue for fish farmers.

Autogenous vaccines have been playing a vital role in bacterial disease control in aquaculture. This is the most effective method for preventing a wide range of bacterial and viral diseases. Autogenous vaccines are widely accepted by aquaculture farming companies during emergency outbreaks, due to very few commercial vaccines being available for specific aquaculture-related diseases.

According to the latest report published by Persistence Market Research, the global autogenous vaccine for aquaculture market was valued at US$11mn in 2020, and is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period (2020-2030).
