Sanofi Entered a Collaboration to Accelerate Manufacturing and Boost Sales

Sanofi collaborated with McLaren in April 2022 to accelerate its manufacturing activities. This strategy may empower Sanofi and McLaren to enhance their sales and expand their market presence.

Declining Demand for the Insulin from Patients Elevated Market Progress During COVID-19

This industry was negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic due to patients' reduced adoption of insulin. The sudden spike in COVID-19 patients bolstered the adoption of medical equipment used for infected patients, thereby reducing sales. Furthermore, the restrictions imposed on manufacturing hampered insulin production, thereby hampering the industry’s growth prospects. However, the resumption of activities after the lockdown bolstered the adoption of insulin, thereby positively affecting the industry’s growth.

Launch of Novel Product Launches Bolstered the Industry’s Growth

Human insulin is a hormone that regulates the body’s blood sugar levels. Insulin is used to treat patients who have diabetes. The increasing prevalence of diabetes conditions is likely to enhance adoption of the insulin. Further, the rising launch of novel products by manufacturers may enhance the market’s growth prospects. For example, Eli Lilly and Company’s Mounjaro injection received official approval in May 2022. This injection aids type 2 patients in enhancing their glycemic control. In addition, increased spending on healthcare devices may drive the human insulin market growth.

Major Players Devise Acquisition Strategies to Expand its Resources

The prominent players operating in the industry deploy acquisition strategies to expand their resources. For example, Novo Nordisk A/S acquired Dicerna Pharmaceuticals and Dicerna’s ribonucleic acid interference (RNAi) platform in November 2021. This strategy may enable Novo Nordisk A/S to bolster its market reach. Further, key companies deploy mergers, product launches, acquisitions, innovations, expansions, and research, and development to elevate their market position.
