Egg is one of the most common food-allergen in children. Egg allergy symptoms usually occur within a brief amount of time after eating eggs or egg containing foods. Egg allergy signs and symptoms includes wheezing or difficulty in breathing, skin rashes, hives, runny nose, sneezing, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, anaphylaxis, and diarrhea. Egg allergy can outgrow before adolescence. It is estimated that Egg Allergy Market is expected to grow at a CAGR 6.5% during the forecast period of 2017-2023. This allergy is also found in adults but children have higher chances to develop an egg allergy due to specific risk factors. American College of Asthma, Allergy & Immunology (ACAAI) stated that up to 2% of children in the United States are allergic to egg. Egg allergy may also be defined as an adverse reaction of immunological nature of egg proteins which also includes IgE antibody-mediated allergy along with allergic syndromes such as eosinophilic esophagitis and atopic dermatitis. There are five major allergenic proteins present in the egg of a chicken. Most allergenic egg proteins found in egg white are ovomucoid (Gal d 1), ovalbumin (Gal d 2), lysozyme (Gal d 4), and ovotransferrin (Gal d 3). Ovalbumin (OVA) is the most abundant protein and ovomucoid (OVM) is the dominant allergen in egg. Egg allergy is also found to be associated with other types of IgE-induced allergies in the adult population. An asthma is found in bakery workers who frequently get exposed to egg and co-workers who work in factories that process eggs. Egg proteins are not only responsible for IgE-mediated allergy, but these proteins also trigger non-IgE-mediated or mixed IgE-mediated reactions. Disorders that fall into these categories are eosinophilic gastroenteropathies and atopic dermatitis. Some vaccinations that prevent illness also triggers an allergic reaction. The vaccines that pose a risk of inducing allergic reaction includes Flu (influenza) vaccines, Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccines, Yellow fever vaccine, and others.
Notably, high prevalence of egg allergy is the key factor driving the egg allergy market as it further triggers eosinophilic gastroenteropathies, and atopic dermatitis disorders. As per the study published in Pediatric Clinics of North America journal in 2014, the prevalence rate of egg allergy in German children is as low as 0.0004%, with 0.6% in Mexican children, and 1.6% in Danish children. In the United States, 1.3% of prevalence rate was reported.
Various other push factors such as, increasing incidences of asthma, consumer awareness and improved allergy diagnosis, and growing popularity of allergen-free food products continuously contribute to the growth of the global egg allergy market.
Despite these drivers, high cost of allergen-free foods and allergy medication may hamper the growth of the market to an extent. According to a study published in the Journal of Allergy, low-income families reported significant financial barriers to the management of food allergy and anaphylaxis preparedness.
Some of key the players in the egg allergy market are Genentech, Inc., Novartis AG., Pfizer Inc., Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., Bayer AG, Abbott, Astellas, Sanofi, Merck & Co., Inc., Creative Diagnostic Medicare Pvt. Ltd., and ImmuneTech.
