Rising Technological Advancements for Diabetes Therapy to Boost Industry Growth

The demand for type 1 diabetes therapy is increasing due to the rising incidence of this ailment across the Middle Eastern countries.

Such initiatives by healthcare agencies to boost the presence of new-generation pumps across the Middle East and Africa region are anticipated to propel the market growth.

Thus, several government and private agencies are initiating educational and awareness programs for the patient population regarding diabetes care and management. Moreover, strategic approaches by healthcare professionals across social platforms, such as mobile diabetes clinics, therapeutic nutrition, and education on type 1 and type 2 diabetes will increase awareness and adoption of these pumps, further boosting the market growth.

However, limited presence of insulin pumps, high product costs across these countries, and less developed healthcare facilities for diabetes management pose a barrier to accessing healthcare services for patients. Thus, lack of use of these pumps among diabetic patients and low regional awareness may further restrain the Middle East & Africa insulin pump market growth.

  • According to an article published by MDPI in November 2020, a cross-sectional study in Saudi Arabia showed that only 9% of children with type 1 diabetes used insulin pump therapy.
