Novel Insulin Delivery Systems Pump New Life Into Diabetes Device Market

The market for insulin delivery devices is positioned to change significantly with several manufacturers gearing their products toward type 2 diabetics, who make up 90% to 95% of the diabetes patient pool in the US. These new, “pump-like” devices could offer the type 2 diabetes population better control in managing glucose levels, a solution the medical community has been seeking for a while.

Diabetes Device Market: Innovation Highlights Road to Growth

Despite the slumping economy, the diabetes market continues to be a very active area, with treatment-changing products recently launched or in late-stage development. Although no industry has been able to escape the effects of the US recession, and certain segments of the diabetes market have seen a decline in sales, other areas continue to move forward. Once the economy returns to healthier levels, the overall market is expected to see a renewal of growth. Meanwhile, an expanded emphasis on emerging international markets could help offset some of the sluggish numbers in the US and parts of Europe.

Insulin Device Companies' New Mantra: Real Simple

Companies developing devices for diabetes have to ask a question that companies in other medical device fields don't: what about the users, the people with diabetes? How will they use the device? Because in diabetes care, management of the disease is left up to the patient, who is asked to self-test blood glucose levels, self-administer insulin by injection, and pay attention to diet and exercise. Acknowledging that the patient is the single most important contributor to success in diabetes care, start-up companies have set out to make insulin delivery easier. With a focus on ease of use as a clinical advantage, start-ups are offering new insulin delivery devices for two distinct markets: the full-featured (but easy to use) insulin pump for Type 1 diabetes, and the disposable, simple insulin patch/infuser for Type 2.
