Global Artificial Pancreas Device System Market: Snapshot
The artificial pancreas device system is capable of a near perfect replication of the regulatory functions of glucose of a healthy organic pancreas. These systems generally comprise three forms of devices: an insulin pump or infuser, a constant glucose monitoring system, and a glucometer or any other blood glucose measuring device. The measuring device is necessary to help calibrate the CGM, which can also be done using a computer that can maintain an algorithm to control the CGM using values derived from the blood glucose device. An artificial pancreas device system is usually a closed loop system that follows an automated method of delivering insulin to a patient. It can therefore be completely autonomous and can function without any manual inputs, similar to an organic pancreas.
The rate of innovation is exceedingly high in the global artificial pancreas device system market, primarily owing to the massive and swiftly increasing number of diabetics across the world. The count of diabetic patients is especially high in developed economies, where the presence of strong players in medical devices markets, consistent government backing, and high healthcare expenditure can support a high level of technological innovation. Bodies such as the FDA are showing an increasingly louder support to innovators in the global artificial pancreas device system market as well, due to the constant rise in demand from the growing diabetic and geriatric populations.
Global Artificial Pancreas Device System Market: Overview
According to World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, 422 million people were diagnosed with diabetes across the globe in 2014. Diabetes is considered one of the leading causes of death in a majority of developed nations, while it is emerging as a larger issue in developing nations. Effective therapeutic measures are required to keep the blood glucose levels of diabetic patients close to normal. Constant monitoring of blood glucose levels is thus important to lower the risk of hypoglycemic episodes in diabetic patients. This is a key factor fueling the demand for artificial pancreas device systems (APDS). APDS is an innovative device used for monitoring blood glucose level and administering insulin in appropriate doses to people suffering from diabetes.
Increase in the incidence of diabetes has made patient-specific care extremely important. An artificial pancreas device system helps in effectively treating diabetes patients. It is designed as a closed yet continuous loop control system required for insulin infusion. The continuous control is intended to facilitate the daily treatment of diabetic patients, especially in cases where medical personnel are not available round the clock or patients have little knowledge about the ailment.
An APDS, therefore, mimics the glucose regulating functions performed by a healthy pancreas. The system is also used to administer insulin to type 2 diabetes patients. Apart from the constant monitoring of blood glucose levels, the system provides optimum balance between blood glucose and insulin in patients. This prevents the occurrence of other diabetes-related disorders such as cardiac arrest and kidney failure.
The report provides a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the various factors affecting the global APDS market’s growth trajectory. It presents insights into the prevailing market trends and compiles exhaustive information relating to the most lucrative regional markets for APDS. Using industry-leading analytical tools, the report presents the information thus obtained in a logical format.
Global Artificial Pancreas Device System Market: Key Opportunities and Threats
Increase in demand for organ transplant and growing prevalence of pancreatic disorders are expected to drive the global artificial pancreas device system market. Rising incidence of pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis and increasing number of diabetics across the world are also fueling demand for advanced technologies.
The market is gaining impetus from increasing consumption of alcohol and other factors that increase the risk of developing pancreatic disorders. Additionally, prevalence of ailments and medical conditions such as lupus and high triglycerides and gallstones is propelling the market. Furthermore, rising geriatric population with pancreatic disorders and introduction of latest technologies such as software based and wireless systems are expected to boost market growth. However, growing awareness about the side effects of the treatment modality and ineffectiveness of this technology in treating athletic diabetes are likely to hamper market growth.
