Market Overview

  • The Asia-Pacific market for diabetes drugs is estimated to value USD 23.8 billion in 2019, and the market is expected to grow at the CAGR of 4.82%, during the forecast period.
  • Over the past few decades, Asian countries have witnessed a rapid increase in diabetes patients, especially those with type 2 diabetes. Developing countries have more than 70% of the global diabetes population.
  • The Asian population gets diabetes at a younger age in comparison to the Western population. The reason for this early diabetes development is the sudden change in lifestyle, due to rapid economic growth.
  • Asia contributes approximately 60% of the total diabetes patients in the world. The most obvious reason for this is that two of the most populated countries in the world are in Asia. 

Scope of the Report

Key Market Trends

Oral Anti-Diabetes Drugs Take 67% of the Asia-Pacific Diabetes Drugs Market.

  • The use of oral anti-diabetes drugs is rising, due to the fact that new generation oral drugs, such as DPP-4 and SGLT-2, reduce the rate of CV risk in diabetes patients.  
  • SGLT-2 and GLP-1 are linked to lowering the mortality rate more effectively than DPP-4 inhibitors. 
  • Meglitinide and sulfonylureas are oral hypoglycemic drugs that directly arouse the discharge of insulin from pancreatic beta cells. They hold a significant market share, of 14.27% and 9.62%, respectively, in the Asia-Pacific anti-diabetics drugs market.
Asia Pacififc

China and Japan Occupy more than a 50% Share in the Asia-Pacific Diabetes Drugs Market.

  • In the Asia-Pacific region, China and Japan have recognized as potential developing markets, due to the growing diabetic population in this region.
  • Japan is a mature market, with some associated challenges, like slow economic growth, the aging population, and increased competition. One particular challenge in this region is the growing preference for oral anti-diabetics among type-2 diabetic patients, thereby, leading to a negative insulin volume development.
  • China has the highest market share and is expected to grow with a steady CAGR of 4%. It also contributes 15% to the global diabetes drugs market. 
  • The country is witnessing a significant increase in the number of generic drug manufacturers. Furthermore, the leading global players in the market studied are facing intense competition from the regional players.

  

Asia Pacific

Competitive Landscape

  • The Asia-Pacific diabetes care drugs market is highly fragmented, with a few major manufacturers gaining presence in major countries of the Asia-Pacific market, while the remaining market comprises other local or region-specific manufacturers. 
  • Mergers and acquisitions that happened between players in the recent past helped companies strengthen their market presence, as well as driving innovations, helping the diabetes drugs market to increase in the Asia-Pacific region. For instance, Biocon has launched its insulin glargine biosimilar, in Japan and Malaysia, partnering with local manufacturers for further commercialization.
