Market Overview

As a part of diabetes treatment, constant monitoring of glucose levels is required. Blood glucose levels, if not monitored regularly, can lead to severe complications. The diabetes management process is an expensive service. On a large scale, patients use blood glucose test strips. The retail cost of these strips varies from 50 cents per piece to as high as USD 5 per strip. Price is often a significant concern for the purchase of blood glucose test strips. Although various countries, like the United Kingdom, provide reimbursements for prescribed test strips, the majority of the patients have to pay for them from their pockets. The frequency of monitoring glucose levels depends on the type of diabetes and varies from patient to patient. Type-1 diabetic patients need to check their blood glucose levels at regular intervals and adjust the insulin dosage accordingly. Therefore, if a patient performs 5-6 tests in a day, the average expenditure on test strips would be over USD 180/month. These expenses add to the already high diabetes management costs and are impeding market growth.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Blood Glucose Test Strips from Type-2 Diabetic Patients

Due to the ease in handling glucometers, patients are now preferring to use them for their personal use (home use). Measuring blood glucose levels is essential to take or alter the medication accordingly, especially insulin users. Within seconds, glucometers provide blood glucose levels with accuracy. There is constant upgradation in glucometers for better use and more efficiency. Approximately 10% of the diabetic population contributes to Type-1 diabetes and 90% contributes to Type-2 diabetes. About 90% of Type 1 patients are using glucometer in their daily routines, and 25% of Type-2 patients are using the glucometers. Due to the sedentary lifestyle, the blood glucose levels for Type-2 diabetes patients are not under control, and this is causing the patients to regularly monitor their blood glucose levels to avoid further complications of diabetes. Thus, the aforementioned factor has increased the demand for the blood glucose test strips market.

Blood Glucose Test Strips Market Key Trends

North America Accounted for a Major Share in 2019

Globally, North America accounted for the largest share of 55% in 2019, owing to the availability of healthcare reimbursements and the fastest adoption rate for new medical technologies. North America is the fastest-growing region for the market and portrays a massive potential for growth in the future, due to the increasing government initiatives to combat diabetes and corporate investments to streamline R&D in diabetes. Currently, in North America, there are more than 29 million diabetes patients and this number is expected to increase to 32 million by 2025. The US alone recorded over 25 million diabetes patients in 2019. In this, almost 90% of them are type-2 diabetes patients. With the increasing number of diabetic patients in this region, the demand for test strips is anticipated to increase simultaneously in the coming years.

Blood Glucose Test Strips Market Growth by Region

Competitive Landscape

The blood glucose test strips market is highly fragmented, with few major manufacturers having a presence in major regions of the global market, while the remaining manufacturers confine to the other local or region-specific manufacturers. The innovations in test strips are increasing and are under development. The new test strip includes features, such as underfill detection, and provides the user with the ability to reapply blood when the test strip is underfilled (“second chance” sampling).
