Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has a high blood glucose/sugar level either because of inadequate production of insulin in the body, or because of body cells not responding properly toward the insulin, or both. People with high blood glucose level in the blood will experience polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia (thirst), and polyphagia (hunger). According to a WHO report in 2014, 422 million people suffered from diabetes with 8.5% of prevalence rate worldwide. Insulin is the first line therapy treatment for diabetes when patients do not respond to oral hypoglycemic agents. Insulin is administered into the body by intravenous and subcutaneous injection. In the diagnostic process, pricking of blood vessels is the most common which might cause needle stick damages for healthcare specialists and that result in pain and infections. Diabetes self-care is pain, it needs constant draw blood for glucose testing, needs daily insulin therapy and also having high risk of infection because of poking. Nowadays, glucose monitors and insulin pumps are available for automating the tedious process of the blood glucose level management, but these tools do not removed the use of needles for skin pricks and shots. Hence, non-invasive needle-free diabetes technology is increasing used and is the most advanced and popular field worldwide. Several companies are focusing on developing technologies that could replace the poke with a patch. Manufacturers are working on various techniques such as transdermal patches that read blood sugar level through the skin without drawing the blood. Increasing geriatric population, modern lifestyle, rising prevalence of diabetes and obese population, and changes in food habits are key factors that are driving the growth of the needle-free diabetes care market at a global level. In addition, rise in awareness toward diabetes is boosting the market growth. However, infection, incorrect dosage, high cost, skin damage or pain, and technical mistake associated with needle-free diabetes care might restrain the growth of the market.
