"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The global insulin pens market is expected to witness striking growth by the year 2026. In October 2018, Novo Nordisk A/S announced the projected launch of Bluetooth connected smart Insulin Pens. The pen has the ability to record insulin dosages as well as time logs. The purpose of developing smart insulin pen is to avoid extra dosages, to maintain a systematic record of dosage and to convert dosage information to computer-based reports.
The company is developing smart insulin pens in collaboration with Roche, Dexcom, and Glooko. In the last 30 years, the Insulin pen has grown in popularity due to its portability, usability, a record of accurate usage and less pain as compared to injection. It has been observed that, in 2017, the usage of insulin pens in high-income countries, middle-income countries, and low-income countries was 81%, 36%, and 13% respectively. During the forecast period, insulin pens are projected to be replaced by smart insulin pens, which are capable of recording your insulin dosage as well as alerting the user about the next dosage.
