Increasing prevalence of diabetes across the globe will stimulate the market potential for antidiabetics drugs during forecast period. Need for effective treatment with low side effects will result into increasing R&D spending by pharmaceutical firms for drug development. Thus, escalating demand and adoption of antidiabetic drugs in developing as well as developed nations will boost the market growth in the upcoming period.

Growing investment in drug development to manage diabetes will spur industry expansion

According to the European Society of Cardiology, diabetic population is estimated to reach at 628.6 million by 2045. Management of diabetes requires timely intervention and medication throughout the patients’ lifetime due to lack of curative drugs. Advancement in antidiabetic drugs has resulted into increased success rates and minimized complications.

For instance, various new drugs including dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors, selective sodium glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors and unique peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor agonists are in development stages. Introduction of new mechanisms have increased opportunities for combination therapies. Hence, public and organizational efforts to innovate in diabetes drugs space will impel the market size in near future.

However, considerable cost of insulin may limit antidiabetics market growth upto some extent in developing countries.

High success rates associated with insulin treatment will provide lucrative growth potential

Insulin segment is further segmented as rapid acting analog, long acting analog, premixed insulin, short acting analog, intermediate acting insulin. Drug class is sub classified into alpha glucosidase inhibitors, biguanides, sulphonylureas, GLP-1 (Glucagon like peptide) agonists, DPP-IV (Dipeptidyl Peptidase) inhibitors, Meglitinides, SGLT-II (Sodium Glucose Transport Proteins) inhibitors and thiazolidinedione.

Insulin market constituted significant market share in 2019 and is expected to proceed at lucrative 12.4% CAGR. Introduction of short-acting analog has enhanced its post-prandial glucose-controlling ability in both type 1 and type 2 diabetic patients. Furthermore, with increase in type-2 diabetic patient pool, the segment will witness unprecedented growth during analysis period.

Increasing glucose intolerance with ageing will boost adoption of antidiabetics in geriatric patient base

Geriatric population segment held over USD 27 million revenue in 2019. According to the European Society of Cardiology, among the total disease burden approximately 39.7% was due to population growth and ageing. Upsurge in geriatric population has contributed to significant diabetes burden.

With advancing age, prevalence of type 2 diabetes increases along with escalated risk of coronary heart diseases, vascular diseases and stroke. Older diabetes patients are exposed to high risk of sarcopenia and physical disability. Thus, in order to prevent comorbidities coupled with expanding baby boomers globally, the adoption of diabetes drugs in geriatric population will rise in the future.

Expanding adoption of insulin pumps will provide immense growth opportunities to the industry

Insulin pump segment is forecasted to progress at over 11% CAGR during the forecast years. Robust growth is primarily attributed to preference for insulin pumps due to its advantages. It offers reduced episodes of severe glycemic conditions with less glucose variability. Also, ability of pumps to store information that can be further analysed and used in treatment planning will boost the segment revenue.
