The focus of companies on the introduction of user-friendly and convenient insulin delivery devices is projected to boost tubeless insulin pump market adoption in the coming years. The growing prevalence of diabetes and technological advancements in insulin delivery to stimulate the industry growth. Diabetes is amongst the largest public health concerns, inflicting significant mortalities and socio-economic impact.


However, high costs associated with the long-term use of tubeless insulin pump restrict product acceptance, thereby hampering the tubeless insulin pump market expansion. Inadequate reimbursement in certain countries affects its affordability to patients. New insulins are retailed at relatively high prices in comparison with previously available products. Increased prices are due to the use of new manufacturing techniques and the cost associated with development. Diabetic patients require more than one insulin vial per month that adds to the overall cost of the disease management. As diabetes require long-term medications, it significantly contributes to the economic burden of patients.


The COVID-19 arose as an unprecedented public health concern across the globe and has positively impacted the tubeless insulin pump market progression. Diabetic patients suffering from type 1 diabetes (T1D) are more vulnerable and at a high risk of COVID-19. The use of wearable diabetes devices comprising tubeless insulin pump in hospitals has increased significantly during this pandemic. As per the American Diabetes Association (ADA), as part of the management of type 1 diabetes (T1D) in a patient with coronavirus disease, the use of diabetes technology comprising tubeless insulin pump is recommended to improve glycemic control. This pandemic has influenced the usage of tubeless insulin pump in-home care owing to less availability of hospital beds. Due to COVID-19, countries across the world have rapidly arranged services to ensure suitable diabetes care during the pandemic.


Growing prevalence of obesity to augment the tubeless insulin pump market value

Obesity is a major risk factor contributing to the higher prevalence of diabetes, thus benefits the demand for diabetes management devices comprising tubeless insulin pump. Obesity leads to increased levels of inflammation and fatty acids that result in insulin resistance causing the risk of type 2 diabetes. Further, it also contributes to cardiometabolic complications and dyslipidemia in patients with type 1 diabetes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the prevalence of obesity was around 42.4% in 2017-2018 in the U.S. Increasing the obese population in such developed nations with high spending ability on advanced treatments propels the industry expansion.

Moreover, according to the World Health Organization, nearly 39% of adults aged 18 years and over were overweight and 13% were obese in 2016. Among such obese individuals, the amount of nonesterified fatty acids, pro-inflammatory markers, glycerol, cytokines, and hormones along with other substances is comparatively higher that is responsible for the development of insulin resistance. In addition, changing lifestyle, overeating, physical inactivity, and some psychological factors contribute to the incidence of obesity, thereby fostering the tubeless insulin pump market size. Therefore, a higher prevalence of obesity responsible for the increased incidence of diabetes will benefit the tubeless insulin pump adoption.

Technological advancements in pod/patch component will stimulate the market demand

Pod/patch segment dominated more than 60% of the tubeless insulin pump market share in 2020 and was valued at around USD 1.27 billion in 2020 led by the increasing product acceptance due to convenience in insulin delivery without affecting daily activities. Presently, the pod is designed with an embedded algorithm to adjust insulin delivery automatically as per customized glucose target according to the CGM trend and value. Additionally, portability, connectivity, and ease in insulin administration associated with the use of pod will benefit the product demand. Small size and computerization of device enables on-time insulin delivery with continuous glucose monitoring systems. Further, developments in functionality and product design will favour tubeless insulin pump demand in the coming years.
