Insulin Pens Market Size, Share And Forecast To 2031

(MENAFN- Straits Research) Insulin pens are needle-equipped injecting devices that administer insulin subcutaneously. Insulin, a vital hormone, is administered to people with diabetes via insulin devices. Insulin syringes are equipped with a disposable needle and cartridge. Insulin pens do not abolish the need for puncturing needles. They facilitate the monitoring and administration of insulin.
A single insulin dose from an insulin device can vary between 0.5 and 80 units. They can administer insulin in one, one-and-a-half, or two units. Insulin pens are getting popular, and many people with diabetes prefer administering insulin. Compared to a vial and syringe, they make delivery simpler, more accurate, and more convenient.
Market Dynamics
High Rising Prevalence of Diabetes Drives the Global Market
Compared to developed nations, diabetes is more prevalent in developing nations. In these regions, diabetes also affects young children due to childhood obesity, a significant risk factor. In developed nations, only the elderly are susceptible to diabetes, whereas in developing nations, adults and seniors over 65 are also at risk. As a result of lifestyle changes, one in eleven adults aged 0 to 79 have diabetes, particularly type II.
In addition, most people with type I diabetes reside in countries with high incomes. In 2017, there were 9 million patients, most of whom resided in high-income countries. Therefore, the rising prevalence of diabetes is pushing the global growth of the insulin pen market.
Increased Demand for Smart Insulin Pens Creates Tremendous Opportunities
Smart insulin pens are insulin pens of the second generation that offer improved diabetes management systems. They assist in managing diabetes by enhancing insulin administration and perpetually monitoring it. In recent years, insulin syringes have been widely adopted. An increase in the target population, improved health management, and long-term cost-effectiveness of smart insulin devices are driving market growth.
Europe is predicted to have the most significant market growth for smart insulin pens, reaching nearly USD 85.34 million by 2027, partly due to the high current utilization of such pen devices. Due to the growing demand for insulin syringes in recent years, the number of manufacturers has increased. Numerous startups and minor businesses are merged and acquired by major corporations. They collaborate with minor manufacturers or design their insulin pens. Therefore, the demand for insulin devices will create growth opportunities for key market participants.
