UK Diabetes Devices Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2018 - 2023)

UK Diabetes Devices Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2018 - 2023)

Purchase Report

The growth of the market for diabetic devices is directly proportional to the increasing diabetic population in the country. The diabetic population in the United Kingdom has been increasing constantly over the past decade.  There are almost 4.5 million people living with diabetes and close to 1 million undiagnosed diabetic patients in the country. Type 2 diabetes accounts for close to 92% of the diabetic population in the country.  The increasing number of type 2 diabetic population has a direct correlation to the growing obesity population. The Type 1 diabetic population is expected to see an average increase of 2.5% per year from 2012-2023. The increasing diabetic population acts as a prominent driver for the diabetic devices market in the United Kingdom.

The UK diabetes device market is broadly segmented based on type, into glucose
monitoring devices market and the 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 as syringes, pens, pumps and injectors.

In the insulin delivery devices market in the United Kingdom, the insulin cartridge market and insulin pens market account for high market share.  The growing demand for insulin has led to tremendous research and development activities on manufacturing different painless types of insulin deliverable devices, such as insulin pens. Initially syringes were the only form of insulin delivery system, and were considered to be painful and not user friendly. Thus, the companies like Novo Nordisk, 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 wastage of insulin. The high cost of insulin pens is the only prominent restraining factor for the growth of the market.

The United Kingdom has a high number of diabetic population, which accelerates the growth of the devices market. The insulin delivery devices accounted for 68% of the total UK devices market.  The United Kingdom insulin delivery devices market was valued at 162.03 million in 2017 and expected to witness a CAGR of 3.34% during the forecast period (2018-2023).
