The market for insulin delivery devices is directly dependent on the increasing diabetic population. Middle East & African region has witnessed an astounding increase in the prevalence for diabetes in patients, in the resent years. In most of the countries in the region, the rate of diabetes has been at an all-time high, mainly due to the environmental and lifestyle changes. This has led to high sales of insulin’s in the region. Insulin was initially considered to the treatment method only for type 1 patients, but over the years insulin has also been used by considerable number of type 2 patients as a line of treatment. The Middle East & African market for insulin delivery devices is 810 million in 2018, and is expected to witness a CAGR of 2.79% during the forecast period.

The rising demand for insulin has led to tremendous R&D activities involving in manufacturing different painless types of insulin deliverable devices, like CGM integrated insulin pumps. Initially syringes were the only form of insulin delivery systems, which are considered to be painful and not user-friendly. Thus, the companies like Novo Nordisk, Sanofi among others, have produced their own insulin pens. These have a specific set dosage and are considered to be not only be less painful to use but also reduces wastage of insulin. The high cost of insulin pens is the only prominent restraining factor for the growth of the pens market.

A large set of the diabetic type 1 patients are children. There was a need for an alternative to the existing needle based delivery system which is painful. Thus, the invention of insulin jet injector, a painless insulin delivery system has come into picture. The insulin jet injector has registered high sales in developed countries, such as United States and Canada. These jet injectors are considered to be the future for insulin delivery system. The lack of awareness for the product and its benefits, when compare to conventional methods of insulin delivery acts as the prominent restrain for the product.  

Middle East & African region has a large number of diabetic population. Thus, the sales of insulin delivery devices is high in the region. Middle East & Africa accounts for close to 3.4% of the global market share of insulin delivery devices. In most of the Middle Eastern region, the consumer’s disposable income is high. Thus, the expenditure on the health care products is also high. The consumers in the region have high acceptance for new technology this is expected to boost the sales of jet injectors market during the forecast period.
