Market Report Description

The Global Digital Diabetes Management Market size is expected to reach $29.5 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 12.0% CAGR during the forecast period.

Diabetes is a chronic disease in which the body's glucose levels rise due to decreased insulin secretion from the pancreas and insulin's inability to keep blood glucose levels stable. Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes are the three major kinds of diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is the most frequent type of diabetes in today's world. Hyperglycemia is a medical term for when the body's glucose level rises, whereas hypoglycemia is a medical term for when the glucose level falls.

Diabetes has the potential to cause a wide range of other health issues, including hyperosmolar hyperglycemia, diabetic ketoacidosis, chronic renal disease, several types of cardiovascular disease, and even mortality. Diabetes management includes the use of connected devices, application-driven applications, test strip supplies, and patient education on how to properly manage blood glucose levels. Certain apps and devices aid in the tracking and keeping of records, allowing physicians to provide the best advice for effective patient treatment. Digital diabetes management systems have become increasingly important for long-term monitoring and control.

The increasing prevalence of diabetes has raised the focus on developing and implementing better diabetes care solutions. Furthermore, technological improvements have resulted in the introduction of highly adaptable solutions to the market. Other important drivers driving market expansion are the increased acceptance of cloud-based enterprise solutions and the expanding use of linked devices and apps.

Digital Diabetes Management Market - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic might have a long-term positive impact on the digital diabetes management market. In early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the digital diabetes management business, since most hospitals and specialty diabetes clinics, as well as academic and research institutes, were forced to close due to lockdowns and quarantine regulations in many regions of the world. All non-essential treatments were postponed as a result, and the number of outpatient cases dropped dramatically during this time.

Market Growth Factors

Rising Incidences Of Diabetes

Diabetes is anticipated to become the sixth major cause of mortality by 2030, according to the WHO. Stress, sedentary lives, bad diets, and obesity are all key risk factors for diabetes. Physiological changes associated with aging play a substantial role in diabetes risk. Diabetes prevalence, for example, rises with age, according to the International Diabetes Federation. As a result, adults over the age of 65 had the highest predicted prevalence. Adults aged 20–24 years had the lowest diabetes prevalence (2.2 percent in 2021). Diabetes prevalence among persons aged 75–79 years was anticipated to be 24.0 percent in 2021 and is expected to rise to 24.7 percent by 2045.

Technological Innovations

The medical device industry has seen significant technological innovations in the field of diabetes care over the last decade, including the introduction of focused sensor-based CGM technology, implantable digital diabetes management devices, closed-loop systems, and wearable smartphone-based diabetes management devices. Technologically enhanced systems have enhanced the capacity to manage diabetes and made it possible to achieve tight control while giving patients, children, and their families a more flexible schedule and food.

Market Restraining Factors

Expensive Devices And Lack Of Reimbursement In Developing Countries

Insulin delivery equipment, such as smartphone-connected insulin pumps, range in price from USD 4,500 to $6,500. Furthermore, sensor-based continuous glucose monitors have an average selling price of USD 1,000–1,400, with sensors needing to be replaced every few days. Digital self-monitoring blood glucose meters range in price from $15 to $20. Because of the high initial cost and frequent use of accompanying consumables (which necessitates recurrent purchases), modern devices are out of reach for a considerable majority of end-users, especially those in poor countries with unfavorable reimbursement scenarios.
