Global Nateglinide Market: Introduction

Nateglinide is an oral antihyperglycemic agent. It belongs to the meglitinide class of short-acting insulin secretagogues. It is used for the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. The agent acts by binding to β cells of the pancreas to stimulate and regulate insulin release. Nateglinide is an amino acid derivative. It induces an early insulin response to meals decreasing postprandial blood glucose levels. Meglitinides may have a neutral effect on weight or cause a slight increase in weight. The average weight gain caused by meglitinides appears to be lower than that caused by sulfonylureas and insulin and appears to occur only in those naïve to oral antidiabetic agents. Meglitinides may cause hypoglycemia due to their mechanism of action. However, the risk is thought to be lower than that of sulfonylureas since their action is dependent on the presence of glucose. Nateglinide is used alone or with other medications to control high blood sugar along with a proper diet and exercise program.

Nateglinide is extensively metabolized in the liver and excreted in urine (83%) and feces (10%). Major metabolites possess less activity than the parent compound.

Key Drivers of Global Nateglinide Market

Rapid Growth in Prevalence of Diabetes

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number of people with diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. The global prevalence of diabetes among adults over 18 years of age has risen from 4.7% in 1980 to 8.5% in 2014. Diabetes prevalence has been rising more rapidly in middle- and low-income countries. Diabetes is a major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke, and lower limb amputation. In 2016, an estimated 1.6 million deaths were directly caused by diabetes. Another 2.2 million deaths were attributable to high blood glucose in 2012. Almost half of all deaths attributable to high blood glucose occur before the age of 70 years. The WHO estimated that diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death in 2016.

Increase in Prevalence of Obesity

According to the WHO, global prevalence of obesity has nearly tripled since 1975. In 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Of these, over 650 million were obese. 39% of adults aged 18 years and over were overweight in 2016, and 13% were obese. Most of the world's population lives in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight. 40 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2018. Over 340 million children and adolescents aged 5 to 19 were overweight or obese in 2016.
