Diabetes Diagnostics Market Overview

Driven by the increasing incidence of diabetes, the global diabetes diagnostics market is exhibiting notable growth. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 422 million people around the world have diabetes. Prevalence of diabetes is higher in low- and middle-income countries, as per the WHO’s findings. Besides this, diabetes also is identified as a principal reason behind rising kidney failure, blindness, heart attacks, stroke, and lower limb amputation cases.

According to Fact.MR, the rising incidence of diabetes is expected to fuel the demand for better-performance and smarter diabetes diagnostics to increase significantly between 2020 and 2030.As per the WHO, globally, over 1.9 billion adults aged 18 years and older were overweight in 2016.

Of these, more than 650 million adults were obese. Obesity is known to be one of the key conditions that can lead to diabetes. Higher prevalence of obesity will therefore stoke growth opportunities for the diabetes diagnostics market.

Advent of Nanotechnology Propelling Growth

Nanotechnology is at the forefront of technologies that are forecast to offer a reliable methodology in the early and precise diagnosis and treatment of diabetes. Several benefits of nanotechnology, such as drug release control and target specification, are driving experts to develop advanced glucose detection and insulin delivery methods using nanotechnology. Such advancements are likely to boost the growth of the global diabetes diagnostics market.

Nanotechnology gives access to advanced sensing technologies to provide timely and more accurate information on diabetes. A pair of researchers from the Oregon State University College of Engineering developed means to print transistor-based glucose sensors onto a catheter attached to a wearable pump. This technology allowed diabetics to program the pump to deliver glucagon and insulin at precise doses and time.

A slew of studies similar the one mentioned are undertaken in the last few years to study the use of nanotechnology in diabetes. A common aim of these researches is to offer timely and accurate diagnosis. Spurred by this, the diabetes diagnostics market will exhibit significant growth over the coming years.

Lack of Awareness Limiting Market Growth

The diabetes diagnostics market is hampered by lack of awareness about diabetes and its effects. In 2015, according to UK National Health Service (NHS), nearly 3.9 million people were diagnosed with diabetes, and more than 590,000 people were unaware and undiagnosed. This might restrict the overall growth opportunities for the market.

Regional Outlook of Diabetes Diagnostics Market

North America is one of the most attractive markets for diabetes diagnostics. Rising healthcare expenditure is one of the biggest factors accountable for the region's exceptional growth. For instance, in 2019, Canada's per-capita spending on health ranked 11th amongst health-care systems in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

Besides this, increasing Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approvals to some of the leading market players in countries such as the U.S. and Canada are also boosting the growth of the diabetes diagnostics market in North America. For instance, in February 2020, Abbott obtained FDA permission for the use of FreeStyle Libre 14-day Flash glucose monitoring systems in hospitals and clinics.

Asia Pacific has also emerged as a lucrative market for diabetes diagnostics. Rising diabetic population in economies such as China and India is driving growth in the region. Increasing government funds, initiatives, and education on health awareness are further augmenting the demand for diabetes diagnostics in the region.

For instance, the New Rural Co-operative Medical Care System (NRCMCS) is intended at making the healthcare system more affordable for rural people in China. It covered nearly 98% of rural residents in 2018. Such initiatives towards the developing healthcare sector in underdeveloped areas of the developing countries are promoting diabetes diagnostics market growth.

Besides North America and Asia Pacific, Europe accounts for a sizeable share of the global diabetes diagnostics market. Growth witnessed in the region is primarily due to the growing diabetes cases in the region. According to the WHO, deaths caused due to diabetes are expected to double by 2030 as compared to 2005.

Furthermore, increasing projects towards the expansion of healthcare are likely to augment market growth. For instance, the NOVEL project is intended to transform healthcare in Europe. The European Union's Horizon 2020 funded the NOBEL Coordination and Support Action. Such projects are expected to fuel demand for smarter diabetes diagnostics during the forecast period.
