CGM Sensors Accounted for about Two-Third Share of the Global CGM Components Market in 2014

Date: 2015-08-11

The global continuous glucose monitoring market would generate a revenue of $2,930 million by 2021, registering a CAGR of 31.3% during 2015-2021. CGM sensors accounted for about two-third share of the global CGM components market in 2014 and would continue to dominate the market until 2021. The need of active management and control of diabetes has grown considerably with growing number of diabetic population and associated cost burden. It is projected that, by 2035, the diabetes-affected patient population would reach 471 million with an associated cost burden of $627 billion. 

Continuous monitoring and managing glucose levels is an essential factor in diabetes management, which is primarily delivered by CGMs. In the progression, many high-tech variants of CGMs have evolved such as smartphone-connected CGMs, wearable CGMs and non-invasive CGMs. The improved efficacy and high disease prevalence has brought these devices to center stage to glucose monitoring. Increasing awareness, FDA approval to the novel and innovative products such as bionic pancreas and focus on developing CGM devices to serve new end user segment are prime drivers to the growth of CGM market. 

However, lack of adequate reimbursement regime for devices and clinicians, has been the key barrier to the adoption of the devices.Sensors led the market for CGM components and would also be the fastest growing segment. This growth is primarily supplemented by the recurring sales, high frequency of use, bulk purchasing and the limited life of sensors. Integrated insulin pumps would emerge as the lucrative market segment over the forecast period.

CGMS has proved to be an extremely effective tool for glucose monitoring in the Critical Care/Intensive Care Units (ICUs). Many healthcare regulatory authorities across developed and developing regions have imposed Tight Glycemic Control (TGC) protocols. Mandatory Tight Glycemic Control (TGC) protocol in ICUs will render ICUs as a lucrative customer-segment market for CGMs by 2020. The need for POC/OTC CGMs will result in the emergence of Home Healthcare as the second-most lucrative customer-segment in the CGM market.
