The conventional invasive method for monitoring blood glucose levels is painful owing to its invasive technique. This has led to increasing research and the introduction of new non-invasive blood glucose monitoring devices. For example, DiaMonTech GmbH, in 2018, launched a shoebox-sized device that can diagnose the blood glucose levels by using an infrared light beam through the skin. DiaMonTech GmbH also declared to launch a pocket-sized device for personal use by the end of 2019 and a wearable band with data logging and alarm function to monitor blood glucose level by 2021.

"Increasing Number of New Product Launches is Propelling the Growth of the Continuous Glucose Monitoring Devices Segment"

Self-Glucose monitoring systems accounted for the largest share of the global blood glucose monitors market in 2018. The emergence of the continuous glucose monitoring systems, where a sensor implanted under the skin provides continuous glucose measurements for a regular interval of time, is expected to drive the blood glucose meter market growth.

Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) has demonstrated clinical benefits to patients with type 2 diabetes, with multiple dosages of insulins per day. The introduction of wearable continuous blood glucose monitors is anticipated to have more demand for the meter, due to the ease to use and continuous blood glucose monitoring. These factors are expected to fuel the market revenue during the forecast period of 2019-2026.
