This market includes traditional blood glucose meters, continuous glucose monitoring systems, blood glucose test strips, lancets and lancing devices, insulin, insulin syringes, insulin pens and insulin pumps. Market growth is expected to be fueled by an increasing number of diabetics and improved education regarding the importance of blood glucose management. Factors such as high obesity rates, poor diet and lack of exercise will contribute to the growing type 2 diabetic population. Diabetes mellitus is a disease characterized by hyperglycemia, or an excessive amount of blood glucose. Diabetes results when there are defects in insulin production or usage, or a combination of the two. Insulin is a hormone that allows cells to convert sugar (glucose), starch and other food into energy. It is produced in the beta cells of the pancreas and promotes glucose uptake by cells in the body for energy. Insulin further converts excess sugars to glycogen, which is stored in the liver and muscles. If excess glucose builds up in the blood instead of the cells, cells are starved for energy and high levels of glucose become present in the blood.
The U.S. market for diabetes diagnosis, treatment and drug delivery is expected to exceed $17.87 billion by 2018.
