Rising Incidence of Type 1 Diabetes to Drive Market in the North America Region

In terms of region, the global diabetes injection pens market is classified into the principal regions of Latin America, Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America. Regional classifications are expected to give a better understanding of the market forces at play at the regional scale.

Because of the rising incidence of type 1 diabetes and the development of sophisticated injection pens by manufacturers in the region, North America is likely to dominate the global diabetes injection pens market in the years to come. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 5% of persons with diabetes are diagnosed with type-1 diabetes, which means they are unable to make insulin on their own. The requirement for exogenous insulin delivery rises as a result. Due to growing patient awareness and changing healthcare systems, Asia Pacific is projected to expand at the rapid rate in the market.

Rising Need to Decrease Pain during Insulin Administration is Expected to Boost Demand in the Market

Insulin pens for type 1 diabetes are improved versions of prefilled insulin syringes and pen needles that are utilized to deliver insulin into the bodies of patients with type 1 diabetes. These pens typically include an insulin cartridge that serves as an insulin buffer and a dial that measures the precise amount of insulin to be given to the patient. These cartridges and pens come in a variety of shapes and sizes, as well as disposable as well as non-disposable options. Insulin pen needles that are interchangeable, extremely short, and thin are included in the majority of diabetic pens to decrease pain during injection. These factors are likely to foster growth of the global diabetes injection pens market in the years to come.

The rate of occurrence of diabetes is increasing. Diabetes is one of the key factors likely to drive expansion of the global diabetes injection pens market in the years to come. Other factors predicted to influence market growth comprise the bacterial infection associated with the regular use of syringes to inject insulin, technological advancements in diabetes pens, and risk of needle-stick injuries. All these factors are expected to have led to the emergence of pain free devices for daily insulin injections. The existence of insulin patches and other insulin delivery alternatives, on the other hand, is likely to stifle growth of the global diabetes injection pens market in the years to come.
