Factors that drive the market
For regular monitoring of blood glucose levels, Blood glucose monitoring devices are beneficial for patients who are suffering from diabetes. These devices allow patients and clinicians to analyze their blood glucose levels, allowing therapy modifications and protecting patients from confirming diabetes. In addition, it will ensure patient safety.
The technology makes it easier for the patient for diabetes management and also assists people in developing healthy habits. All these factors drive the market. The BGM devices are readily available at multiple prices, sizes, testing times, and ease of use.
Increasing Cases of Diabetes
The key drivers of the market are the increasing cases of diabetes and the geriatric population, which is prone to diabetes. In addition, the rising alertness further drives the growth of the market regarding diabetes preventive care and the launches of new products.
Diabetes is a serious and growing problem around the globe, where; the lack of efficiency of the pancreas results in the production of insulin, and due to this increase in blood glucose levels takes place.
According to the reports of the International Diabetes Federation, in 2021, diabetes was diagnosed in around 537 million people. This number will increase to 643 million by 2030 and 783 million by 2045.
A large number of undiagnosed diabetes population
A large number of undiagnosed diabetes populations results in less adoption of blood glucose monitoring systems, especially in developing countries. As a result, the frequency of delayed analysis is more among countries such as China, South Africa, India, Brazil, and others. Another reason is the lack of awareness and Health care facilities among ordinary people regarding chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus.
In 2021, according to the report published by International Diabetes Federation in Africa, it was noticed that almost 1 in 2 patients remain undiagnosed, and in Asia Pacific countries such as India, Indonesia, and China, the population of undiagnosed patients is around 55%.
Thus, the lack of a refund plan for CGM and SMBG systems and the above factors are the reason for lower diagnosis and treatment rates.
Surging Geriatric Populations
The Global Blood Glucose Meters Market is boosted because of the rising number of older people at risk for disease. The rapidly increasing geriatric population, rising per capita incomes, high patient volumes, and spiking awareness among individuals are driving the Key factor that enhances the BGM Market in developing countries.
International Diabetes Federation (IDF) estimated that in 2021 around 537 million adults had diabetes; by 2045, the number will be around 783 million. With the increasing prevalence of diabetes patients globally, there will be a hike in the global blood glucose devices market.
Real-time monitoring feature for insulin-dependent patients
The real-time monitoring feature for insulin-dependent patients has been enabled with the introduction of advanced technologies such as CBM in the market. Compared to Self-Monitoring Blood Glucose System (SMBG), Continuous Blood Glucose Monitoring (CBM) offers several advantages, such as real-time monitoring, less pain, rapid and precise, and minimally invasive. SMBG revolutionizes home-based glucose monitoring, and it is the most widely used method.
CBGM is an essential tool for patients with type 1 diabetes for diabetes care. According to the data published by Abbott, the number of FreeStyle Libre users increased globally from 3.0 million in 2020 to 4.0 million in 2021.
North America accounted for the largest Revenue Share in this market.
The North American market shared revenue of over 35.0% in 2022. It held the largest share of the market. The blood Glucose Monitoring System reached up to US$ 3.73 billion in 2022.
The increasing number of patients suffering from obesity and other factors, such as the high cost of treatment, new product launches, and technological advancements, are expected to drive the regional market.
The Europe market is estimated to capture the revenue share in the forecast period due to increased gestational diabetes. Furthermore, due to the implementation of advanced medical products and healthcare sector improvements, the demand for BGMs will increase in the region.
Asia Pacific is expected to be a lucrative region over the forecast period. Because of the rise in the geriatric population and the rising prevalence of insulin-dependent diabetes, this region is anticipated to register a substantial CAGR.
Due to its sizeable diabetic population and rapid economic growth, China headed the APAC region in 2021. Also, patients with diabetes in the countries such as Australia and Japan are actively interested in timely and regular monitoring of their blood glucose levels.
The Middle East & Africa, and Latin America are the major regions estimated to register moderate CAGR during the forecast period. It is because of a need for more awareness among general people about the disease.
