Market Overview

The Latin American diabetes care drugs market registered a value of more than USD 3.5 billion in 2019, and it is expected to witness a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period, primarily due to the growing geriatric population. 

  • The diabetic prevalence is high in countries in the Latin American region, and Mexico is known to have a high number of diabetic patients due to the growing prevalence of Type-2 diabetes in the country. 
  • The gradually growing obesity rate, combined with the genetic predisposition for Type-2 diabetes, is acted as a prominent driver for the increase in the Type-2 diabetic population over the last 40 years. Currently, close to 10% of the total population is living with diabetes.
  •  Diabetic patients in the Latin American region mainly suffer from Type-2 diabetes, and they accounted for close to 90% of the total diabetic population in 2019.

Key Market Trends

Oral Diabetic Drug Recorded High Sales

The oral drug for Type-2 diabetes witnessed sales in this region, mainly due to the low-cost factor. Most of the drugs are generic and are priced lower than branded drugs. Biguanides are considered to be the first class of oral drugs to treat Type-2 diabetes. Mexico is among the top 10 countries with the highest market value and volume for Biguanides. The market for the generic diabetic drug has a high potential for future growth in various countries in Latin America.

Brazil Accounted for the Highest Market Share in 2019

Brazil accounted for 51% of the market in 2019, mainly due to the higher consumption of insulin by Type-1 patients. Brazil accounts for close to 78% of all Type-1 patients in the region. Basal insulin, Lantus, accounted for the largest share by value in 2019 in the Brazilian insulin market. As of April 2018, a discussion was underway between the Brazilian Ministry of Health and the National Committee for Health Technology for the introduction of rapid-acting analog insulin devices to people diagnosed with Type-1 diabetes in the Brazilian Public Health System (SUS). However, the country is still facing issues with the implementation of a national program for diabetes control. Hence, only 11.6% of patients with Type-1 and 46% of those with Type-2 diabetes reach the A1C goal. Regardless of the diabetes type, most patients do not meet other metabolic control goals and a substantial proportion are not screened for diabetic complications.
