Key Market Trends

Increase in Diabetes Population

China stands third in number among the countries, with the highest diabetes population. The incidence of Type 2 diabetes (T2D) has rapidly increased over the past decade, and it has become a leading public health challenge in China. The growth in the Chinese diabetic market is driven by increasing diabetes patients, growth in high-calorie diets, and sedentary lifestyles. This has led the country to record the highest number of diabetes patients in the world, totaling 126 million people in 2020, roughly 8% of the population. About 126 million people were suffering from diabetes mellitus in 2020, with a prevalence of 10.9% among adults. Out of the 126 million diabetic patients, 12.49 million were Type 1 patients and 114.2 million were Type 2 patients.

China Diabetes Population

Self-monitoring Blood Glucose Devices Recorded the Highest Market Share in the Chinese Diabetes Devices Market in 2019

The Chinese self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) devices market was valued at 0.97 USD billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 1.4 billion by 2026. It is also likely to witness a CAGR of above 6.5% during the forecast period (2021 - 2026). In the SBGM market, the glucometer test strips and lancets together account for 86.9% of the share, while the glucometer devices account for 13% of the share. The CAGR of glucometer devices is high, as compared to glucometer test strips and glucometer lancets, and it is estimated to be 8.3% during the forecast period. The prevalence of diabetes in the country is rising steadily, and, as of now, nearly 9% of the total adult population has diabetes. However, the lack of awareness about the benefits of monitoring blood glucose levels, low access to healthcare services, and little health awareness, especially among the diabetes population in some parts of China, are the main reasons that are hindering the growth of the blood glucose monitoring market in the country.
