Brazil Diabetes Devices Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)

Looking to buy the report?

The market growth of diabetic devices is directly proportional to the increasing diabetic population in the country. Brazil is among the 10 countries with the highest prevalence of diabetes in the world (about 7.6%). Diabetes is the fifth underlying cause of death in Brazil, affecting 2.5% of the population. There are almost 19.5 million people living with diabetes in the country, and close to 1.5 million are undiagnosed diabetic population. Type 2 diabetes accounts for close to 90% of the diabetic population in the country.  The increasing number of type 2 diabetic population has a direct correlation to the growing obesity among the population. According to a study conducted by the ministry of health in 2011, close to 42% of the population in the country is either obese or overweight. The Type 1 diabetic population is expected to see an average increase of 3.1% per year, from 2012-2023. The increasing diabetic population acts as a prominent driver for the diabetic devices market in Brazil.

The Brazilian diabetes devices market is broadly segmented based on type, into glucose monitoring devices market and management devices market. The glucose monitoring devices market is further segmented into blood glucose meter, blood glucose testing strip, lancet, and continuous glucose monitoring device (CGM). Based on insulin delivery devices, the management devices market is further segmented into syringes, pens, pumps, and injectors.

In the insulin delivery devices market in Brazil, the insulin cartridge market and the insulin pens market account for the highest market shares.  The growing demand for insulin has led to tremendous R&D in manufacturing different painless types of insulin deliverable devices, such as CGMs. Initially, syringes were the only form of insulin delivery systems, but they are considered to be painful and not user-friendly. Thus, companies like Novo Nordisk and Sanofi, among others, have produced their own insulin pens. They have a specific set dosage and are not only less painful to use, but also reduces the wastage of insulin. The high cost of insulin pens is the only prominent restraining factor for the growth of the insulin pens market.

Brazil has a high number of diabetic patients, which accelerates the growth of the devices market. The insulin delivery devices market accounts for 54% of the total Brazilian devices market.  The Brazilian insulin delivery devices market was valued at USD 423 million in 2017, and it is expected to witness a CAGR of 3.86 % during the forecast period (2018-2023). The revenue share of insulin pens and cartridges market accounted for 32% of the devices market.
