Market Insights

The Quintessential Factors of “Regulatory Landscape” in Europe for Sale of Diabetes Care Devices

The European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) has announced “big calls” for the current CE MARKING PROCEDURE for evaluation and approval of medical devices in Europe. At present, non-CE marking on the medical devices products could result into situations that can have a serious impact on the life of people with diabetes due to product inadequacies.

Currently, there is low level of regulation and control of medical devices in European Union. For the sale of medical devices in Europe it is necessary to have CE Marking. The CE Marking for medical devices guarantees the safety of the devices being sold. However, it does not represent an independent confirmation associated with quality features.  Moreover, EASD had big calls for an improvement of current European system for device registration which too has failed to represent in front of the European markets. With improvement in quality management of in diabetology, the European countries work in collaboration with Scandinavian evaluation of laboratory equipment for point of care testing (SKUP). EASD works closely with SKUP to promote results of their evaluation for medical devices of diabetes.

COVID-19 Impact and Growth Opportunities for Diabetes Care Devices Market

Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd is one of the dominant player in the diabetes care devices market by sale of 8-9 million glucometer devices in India worth around Rs. 1200 crore. As per the company records, in March when lockdown was announced worldwide sales fell by almost 50% compared to February as the supply chain was disrupted. From May onwards, the demand for the glucometer devices rise as patients were unable to get tested in labs and started utilizing self-monitoring blood glucose levels devices sitting at home. It has given rise to online sales that have grabbed only 5-8% of the overall sales in the past that increased to 15% in the COVID-19 outbreak.

Also the company took a strong initiative by offering free access to mySugar Pro app that helped millions of Americans living with diabetes maintain their personalized daily diabetes routine during pandemic.  People suffering from diabetes had gained a lot of access to the app in monitoring blood glucose levels at homes to avoid severity of infection in pandemic.

Regional Landscape

Based on regions, the market for diabetes care devices covers North America, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, Latin America, and Europe.

Based on regions, North America will grab the largest market share for diabetes care devices market globally followed by Europe.  A major share of these regions is attributed to advanced healthcare facilities located in this region, growing diabetic population, and presence of big manufacturers focusing upon advancement in medical devices for diabetes. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is anticipated growing at a faster pace in the forecast period owing to predominant sedentary lifestyle and ever-growing ageing population. In Asia Pacific, India and China will witness a tremendous growth in diabetes care devices.

72.48% of the Market Share is grabbed by North America in Health Monitoring Devices

The rising demand for insulin have provoked tremendous R&D activities in manufacturing different types in painless insulin deliverable devices that involve Continues Glucose Monitoring (CGM), extremely accurate blood glucose monitoring devices (flash glucose monitoring devices), integrated insulin pumps, and improve lancets for glucometers. With advancements in needle-based delivery system the invention of insulin jet injector came into limelight. The insulin jet injector witnessed high sales in developed countries like Canada and the US. This insulin jet injector is considered to be future of the insulin delivery systems. 

In addition, Germany accounted for USD 2.19 billion in 2018. This is attributed to high cases of diabetes in this country as rise in adoption of sedentary lifestyle, growing obesity cases, and unhealthy eating habits.  The Germany healthcare system offers reimbursement and insurance coverage for diabetes care devices that boosts the adoption of medical devices in this country.  High adoption of insulin health deliverables and growing per capita spending on diabetes will further fuel the Germany industry revenue.
