An increasing rate of diabetes

The market is expected to surge and grow during the forecast period, due to the rising rate of diabetes. According to the data given by the World Health Organisation, the total number of persons that have been suffering from diabetes grew from 108 million in 1980 to more than 422 million in the year 2019. Moreover, diabetes has been a key cause of lower limb amputation, stroke, heart attacks, kidney failure, and blindness. In 2019, there had been approx. 1.5 million deaths were related to diabetes. Furthermore, around 2.2 million deaths were due to high blood glucose in 2012. Continuous glucose monitors are widely used by diabetic patients. The monitors help in the measurement of glucose in the fluid, inside a person's body. Dexcom Inc., a key player in real-time continuous glucose monitoring systems, announced in September 2021 that young people with type 1 diabetes would now be covered by the company's G6 continuous glucose monitoring system.

Latest Developments

There has been a surge in spending, intending to develop novel and advanced glucose monitoring solutions and monitors. Firms and corporations have been spending a significant sum of their capital on the development of innovative, high-quality, and advanced continuous glucose monitoring devices and solutions.

  • For instance, in October 2021, GraphWear, one of the promising players in the market, announced that it had raised US$20.5 million in its latest Series B funding for the development of its novel and advanced needle-free continuous glucose monitoring platform. The novel round had been led by Mayfield, with further participation from VSC Ventures, Builders VC, and MissionBio Capital. This development is expected to accelerate the market growth rate, in the coming years.
  • In October 2021, GlucoMedium announced that it had signed a novel design and development collaboration with Molex company, Philips-Medisize. The novel collaboration would focus on the creating and development of a final blueprint for high-volume production of GlucoMedium's needle-free and precise continuous glucose monitor, with the use of its patented MHD platform technology. This development will play a major role in the market growth, in the coming years.
