The global diabetes care drugs market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.17% to reach US$103.851 billion by 2027, from US$59.936 billion in 2020.

The rising prevalence of type-1 in children and type-2 diabetes in adults is causing a surge in demand.

According to WHO, diabetes is a chronic disease that is caused by a high level of glucose present in the blood. It can lead to severe damage to organs such as the heart, blood vessels, and kidneys, among others. Diabetes type 2 is considered the most common type of diabetes and affects adults when the body becomes resistant to insulin.

On the other hand, type 1 diabetes is dependent on insulin and is caused when the pancreas produces very little insulin. The number of individuals suffering from diabetes has risen from 108 million to 422 million in 2014. Moreover, the prevalence of diabetes in individuals over 18 years, which was previously found to be 4.7% in 1980, has surged to 8.5% in 2014.

In addition, diabetes can be treated if a healthy diet is followed and a good amount of exercise and strict recommendation of the doctor is followed. On the other hand, persons suffering from diabetes are actively demanding diabetes care drugs to keep their condition in check, and this is leading to market growth.

A growing proportion of the geriatric population is driving the market growth.

One of the major factors of the rise in demand for diabetic care drugs from geriatric individuals is the fact that during older age, the immune system and the endocrine system, among the other functions of the body, are not up to their full potential, which makes pancreas little weaker and thus making them prone to diabetes. Therefore, this is causing the elderly population to demand diabetic drugs.
