Smart Insulin Pens Market by Indication, Connectivity, and Distribution Channel 2031 | COVID-19 Impact Analysis, Industry Outlook

ESOMAR-certified consulting firm Future Market Insights (FMI) projects the global smart insulin pens market is likely to surpass the billion dollar mark by 2021, expanding at a positive CAGR, as per a newly published research report. A stupendous double digit growth rate has been predicted for the market in the long-run. Growing preference for non-invasive treatment and the ever widening diabetes burden are likely to steer the market in a forward direction.

According to FMI’s report, the market posted significant gains in the past, with Bluetooth smart insulin pens generating over 30% of the revenue share in 2017. Also, according to the International Diabetes Federation, presently, just under half a billion people are living with diabetes worldwide, and their number is projected to increase by 25% in 2030, and 51% by 2045 respectively.

Manufacturers, therefore, are leveraging these trends to introduce novel and innovative product lines, enabling them to secure a firm footing in the market. In November 2020, for instance, Medtronic launched its InPenTM smart insulin device equipped with real-time GuardianTM Connect CGM Data- the first smart insulin pen for diabetics on multiple daily injections. Recently, in April 2021, BioCorp and Roche Diabetes Care launched the Mallya smart insulin pen device in France.

Diabetic patients are tilting towards minimally-invasive or non-invasive treatment alternatives with a view to reduce trauma during subcutaneous insulin administration, a trend which is majorly influencing smart insulin pens adoption,” remarks the FMI analyst.

Competitive Landscape

Major insulin pens manufacturers are effectively leveraging major expansion strategies, ranging from new product launches and R&D to collaborating with existing manufacturers or outright/partial acquisition of key market players. A major emphasis is being laid on incorporating virtual technological advancements to enhance diabetes management.

In February 2021, Novo Nordisk and the University of Toronto announced a CAD 40 million investment deal to establish the Novo Nordisk Network for Healthy Populations. This network will focus on new approaches to address diabetes and aid in chronic disease prevention. This will likely help broaden smart insulin pens development.

Companies are also focusing on providing advanced software platforms, such as Digital Medics’ DiabetesPlus DataSync Software. This platform enables users to download insulin and glucose data directly from the device. Key features include downloading insulin data from the insulin pen, glucose levels from the glucose meter and synchronization of data on the Cloud for use with mobile devices.
