Industry Trends

The fastest-growing segment in the U.S. diabetes market is the FGM market, which has increased dramatically in value. The high level of growth was attributed to the commercial launch of FGM. Abbott received FDA approval for FreeStyle® Libre and for FreeStyle® Libre 14 Day. The FGM market has experienced significant growth in international markets since it was first commercially launched in Europe almost ten years ago. Growth in the U.S. market is expected to follow a similar trend, primarily attributed to an expanding installed base of FGM users.

In the EU diabetes market, pricing pressure and price erosion are common occurrences, as new competitors enter the blood glucose monitoring market and pen needle markets, with low-price strategies and products. The presence of these new competitors puts downward pressure on the average selling price and has caused traditional market leaders to introduce low-priced products of their own, in order to counteract the increased competition in the segment. Tender negotiations and budgetary pressures on national healthcare expenditure also contribute to the decline in prices and have resulted in market value contractions in certain regions. It is expected that the trend of pricing pressure will continue throughout the forecast period, limiting the value of the blood glucose monitoring and the pen needle markets.

Diabetes Market Share Insights

In both the U.S. and EU markets, the vast majority of the overall market share was held by insulin manufacturers, Novo Nordisk, Eli Lilly and Sanofi. Novo Nordisk held the leading position in the ultra-long-acting insulin rapid-acting insulin markets and the second-leading position in the long-acting insulin, premixed insulin and human insulin markets. Medtronic maintained its dominant position in the insulin pump market but has recently faced increased competition from Tandem’s t:slim X2™, as well as Dexcom’s G6® in the CGM market.

Other leading notable competitors in the market include Roche, Abbott and Becton Dickinson. Roche continued to hold the leading position in the blood glucose meter, blood glucose test strip and lancet markets, as well as the second-leading position in the insulin pump market. Abbott continued to benefit from its monopolistic position in the FGM market. Becton Dickinson remained dominant in the insulin pen needle and insulin syringe markets.

Statistics and Procedure Trends

Obesity is considered by leading health organizations, such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as a prevalent disease both globally and in the United States. According to the CDC, there has been a considerable increase in the incidence of obesity in the U.S. over the past 20 years. The latest data on obesity in the U.S. shows that today, nearly 38% of adults at the age of 20 years and over are obese. For adolescents at the age of 12 to 19 years, children at the age of 6 to 11 years, and children at the age of 2 to 5 years, the obesity rate is considerably lower at approximately 21%, 17% and 9%, respectively. On the bright side, this rate has plateaued in the last few years. Being obese makes it difficult for cells to respond to insulin, thus the body reacts by releasing more insulin. Therefore, obesity has been seen as one of the main reasons behind the advance of type 2 diabetes among Americans.
