Self-Monitoring Blood Glucose Devices Market Set for Prosperity in Future

Posted by Pramod Arya on August 23rd, 2021

Owing to the soaring geriatric population and the rising prevalence of obesity and diabetes mellitus in several countries, the demand for self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) devices is expected to rise in the coming years. As per a report by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) on the worldwide ageing population, the population of people aged 60 years and above is increasing at a huge rate. The share of the geriatric population across the globe recorded a huge increase, to 11.7% in 2013 from 9.2% in 1990, and it is predicted to increase to 21.1% by the end of 2050.

The increasing awareness about diabetes and its numerous complications, such as diabetic foot ulcer and delayed wound healing, is another major factor propelling the adoption of SMBG devices across the world. For instance, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) conducted an event in Hyderabad, India in October, 2018, called ‘IDF Diabetes Complications and Foot Congress’ for increasing the awareness regarding diabetes and its complications and management methods amongst the people of the city.

Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to record the fastest growth in the adoption of SMBG devices during the forecast period. This is primarily attributed to the rising incidence of type-2 diabetes, soaring geriatric population, and increasing government investments on healthcare, in the region. As per the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), around 82 million adults in Southeast Asia in the age group of 20–79 years were living diabetes in 2017. Moreover, the improving healthcare infrastructure is expected to further fuel the progress of the self-monitoring blood glucose devices market in the region.
