Market Advances with Rapid Improvements in Insulin Delivery in North America
Among regions, North America is anticipated to dominate the global human insulin market during the forecast period. The growth is majorly witnessed on account of the rising prevalence of diabetes and its related disorders. Furthermore, the demand for human infusion insulin devices is increasing owing to their availability and technological improvements. On the other hand, the market in Asia Pacific is likely to witness high growth between 2018 and 2026. The rising research and development (R&D) investments and presence of well-known manufacturing companies in this region are creating ample growth opportunities for the market. These companies are likely to boost the human insulin market in the upcoming years.
Introduction of Insulin Pens Intended to Offer Ease of Use to Patients
As per research studies, the number of type 2 diabetes patients is increasing owing to its onset at a younger age. Rapid lifestyle changes and unhealthy eating habits are predominantly leading to type 2 diabetes. These patients are treated with different types of insulin as per the requirements. Some of them include rapid-acting insulin, long-acting insulin, short-acting insulin, and premix insulin. The demand for these insulins are expected to increase in the coming years, which in turn, will increase the human insulin production. The introduction of insulin delivery devices such as safety insulin pens and pumps are likely to propel growth of the market. With the emergence of technology, novel insulin pens with added features are likely to gain traction in the coming years.
