Global Insulin Pen Market
Outlook and Trends
The Global Insulin Pen
market was around USD 4300 million in 2019 and, is projected to reach worth USD
7800 million by the year 2026 at a CAGR of 8.8% during the projection period
2020-2026. The key factors propelling the growth of the Global Insulin Pen Market
are the rising incidence of diabetes, increasing geriatric population, and growing
adoption of Insulin Pens over the conventional syringes and vials. With technological
advancements, Insulin Pens are developed with advanced features allowing the
recording of insulin dosages as well as time logs. The purpose of developing a
smart Insulin Pen is to prevent extra dosages, to keep a systematic record of
dosage, and to convert dosage data into computer-based reports.
The growth has been
noticed in demand for Insulin Pen due to its portability, usability, precise
dosage measure, and less pain infliction as compared to injection. The usage of Insulin
Pens have increased across all countries, irrespective of their developmental
stage significantly. The high market potential is perceived in developing countries
due to the increasing diabetic population. These factors are expected to drive the
global demand for the Insulin Pen. Nevertheless, the factors restraining the
market growth are the high cost of Insulin Pens and the availability of
substitutes to Insulin Pens in the market.
Global Insulin Pen Market:
Strict glycemic control
benefits in reducing complications and mortality in patients with diabetes and,
a significant improvement has been noticed in the number of patients reaching
the target glycemic control. It has been possible due to advances in medical
science since the discovery of insulin. Insulin has been the backbone of
therapy in type 1 diabetes and the majority of type 2 diabetic cases. Still,
there are several barriers to insulin therapy that need to be addressed. One of
the most significant barriers is the use of a conventional insulin delivery
process, which continues to be time-consuming, inconvenient, cumbersome, and to
some extent, painful also. Moreover, insulin dosing via syringe is linked with
a high risk of dosage errors, with as many as 80% of patients taking an
incorrect dosage of insulin via syringe. Insulin remains the mainstay in the
treatment of diabetes.
One of the most
significant barriers to insulin therapy are the use of a conventional insulin
delivery system, which remains time-consuming, inconvenient, cumbersome, and
painful. Insulin dosing via syringe is linked with a considerable risk of
dosage errors. The modern pen devices have numerous advantages over
conventional insulin delivery technique. The user-friendliness and comfort of
injection make the initiation of insulin easier. The efficiency of the use of Insulin
Pens and the flexibility of including insulin injections into a busy lifestyle
improves diabetes control effortlessly while maintaining the quality of life
for diabetic patients. Reusable and prefilled pens are also available in the
Rising incidence of
The incidence of diabetes
is rising significantly worldwide. The prevalence of hypertension, obesity,
pre-diabetic symptoms, alcohol consumption, urbanization, and decreased
consumption of fruits and vegetables are the factors, contributing to the
increasing prevalence of type 2 diabetes.
Easier to use
The patients used
syringes and needles for a long time, and the healthcare industries and experts
were in the process to find a better way to inject insulin into the body, which is
cheaper, less harmful, and more comfortable. Today, several people use Insulin
Pens more as compared to vials and syringes. Insulin Pens are more comfortable,
less painful, and straightforward to store and to transport. They effectively
combine features of vial and syringe and allow greater accuracy in the dose
& easier dosage administration.
The procurement cost of
Insulin Pens is higher than that of vials and syringes, although a higher
acquisition cost may be negated by lower health care utilization rates and
fees. As outpatients, most patients incur an incremental out-of-pocket expense
for the use of Insulin Pens instead of vials and syringes. Some outpatients
also lack insurance coverage for pens or have a higher copayment for pens than
vials and syringes.
Global Insulin Pen Market
Based on Product Type,
the Global Insulin Pen Market is segmented into Disposable and Reusable.
Reusable Insulin Pen is expected to dominate during the forecast period owing
is growing demand as it can be used again, and will cost lesser than the
disposable type Insulin Pen. These factors are expected to help the Global Insulin
Pen Market to grow. An insulin cartridge is inserted into the delivery chamber
of the pen in reusable pens making it more versatile for patients as they don't
need to buy another pen for different dosages. The reusable pens are built for
long service life leave negligible chances of infection.
Based on the Application, the
Global Insulin Pen Market segmented into Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes. Type
2 Diabetes is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast
period. Initially, oral medicine, physical exercises, and weight loss are
helpful to control the disease; most people with type 2 diabetes still need to
take insulin by injection. They are scared of injection, but the transition
from oral medicine to pen-based insulin injection is smooth for a patient,
driving its more usage among patients. The preloaded Insulin Pens increasingly
substitute insulin syringes.
