Diabetes mellitus in pets is a condition that affects the amount of sugar or glucose in the pet’s blood. Diabetes occurs when the animal’s body stops producing insulin completely or has an abnormal response to it. The levels of glucose in the blood are predominantly controlled by insulin, that is secreted by the pancreas. In diabetes, limited amount of glucose is transported into the tissues. Hence, the cells are not able to function normally, and the tissues starve for energy. Such state of metabolic starvation triggers body to break down muscles and fats, which is then converted into sugar by the liver. Increasing prevalence of diabetes among pets is a major concern for their owners, resulting in growing number of pets being diagnosed and monitored. Hence, the aforementioned factor will significantly augment pet diabetes care devices market growth across the forecast timeframe.

Diabetes is a complex disease that most often develops in older pets. Unfortunately, there is no permanent cure for diabetes in pets. However, animal diabetes is an ailment that can be easily controlled and managed by pet owners. Traditionally, insulin needles and syringes were the only available drug delivery devices for animals. With advancements in technology and R&D activities, several companies in the market such as Merck and Zoetis introduced blood glucose monitors and insulin delivery pen specifically designed for pets. Hence, such advancements in treatment solutions coupled with increasing concerns among the population about pet’s health are the major factors boosting the market demand.

Rising technological advancements in the drug delivery devices to tackle pet diabetes will boost product demand

Rising technological advancements in the drug delivery devices is another major factor stimulating industry demand. Insulin therapy is the cornerstone of management for all diabetic pets. Traditionally, insulin syringes and vials have been used, but with advancements in technology, insulin pen devices have recently entered the pet industry. Insulin pen is designed to be used by owners with no formal medical training. These devices make the task of administering and measuring insulin doses less painful, easier and more precise and accurate compared to the traditional insulin syringes. Hence, the aforementioned factors will boost the market demand of such products, thus propelling industry growth.

However, side effects associated with diabetes medications in pets might majorly hamper the market growth. Moreover, dearth of knowledge among the population about the ill effects of diabetes in animals is another chief market growth restricting factor.
