The global diabetes treatment devices market size was valued at USD 10.83 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 22.83 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. North America dominated the global market with a share of 40.44% in 2018. Increased investment in the research and development of novel and minimally invasive insulin delivery devices is one of the major factors anticipated to drive the growth of the global market. 

Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases and categorized into type 1 and type 2 diabetes. According to the International Diabetes Federation, in 2017, an estimated 425 million people suffered from diabetes globally. This figure is expected to rise to 629 million by 2045. Type 1 diabetes patients are insulin dependent diabetes patients. Different insulin types are used to regulate blood sugar levels, including fast-acting, short-acting, intermediate-acting, long acting, and premixed. For instance, artificial pancreas, is a new development in pump technology, is the use of the pumps together with glucose sensing and monitoring technology.


“Introduction of novel products by Key Market to Cater unmet needs”

Rising awareness about advanced insulin delivery devices among diabetic patients is anticipated to augment the demand for insulin delivering devices.

“Rising Prevalence of Diabetes Globally”

There is an increasing prevalence of diabetes globally, especially in developing economies. Various factors including rapid urbanization and growth in sedentary lifestyle, especially in developing economies have been responsible for rapidly rising prevalence of diabetes. For instance, the International Diabetes Federation estimated that around 425 million adults were suffering from diabetes in 2017 and it is projected to rise to around 630 million by 2045. 

According to these studies, China, India, U.S., Brazil, and Mexico account for an estimated 55.0% to 60.0% of the global diabetes population. China and India currently account for around 44.0% of the global diabetes population.

Other factors including obesity, and lack of awareness regarding the disease especially in emerging countries, are also contributing to the increasing incidence and prevalence of diabetes.
