The Sweden portable glucose monitor market is projected to grow steadily during the forecast period.

A glucose monitor is a small, portable machine that is used to measure the amount of glucose present in the blood. People with diabetes often use a blood glucose meter to help them manage their condition. According to the International Diabetes Federation, 2019, diabetes prevalence in the population aged between 20 to 79 years in Sweden was reported at 4.8 % in 2019, the percentage is expected to increase during the forecast period. The changing lifestyle patterns have led to an increase in the number of diabetic patients in Sweden which will fuel the growth of this market over the forecast period. In addition, due to the unhealthy eating habits of Sweden citizens, the number of people suffering from obesity and overweight has been on a surge. According to the World Health Organization, 2018, around 50% of adults in Sweden are overweight or obese. The prevalence of obesity has increased among adults during the period 2004–2016 and was 15% among both women and men in 2016. The increasing incidence of obesity will further spike the number of diabetic patients, subsequently increasing the demand for portable glucose monitors in the Sweden market. Also, the portable glucose monitors make it easier to keep a check on blood glucose levels which is vital for proper diagnosis and treatment of diabetes. The monitor is a near-patient device that allows the immediate detection of glucose levels in the body of a patient and facilitates rapid treatment solutions if the need arises. Furthermore, the continuous innovations are increasing the portability, efficiency, and reliability of these monitors which is anticipated to increase their demand over the projected period.

Growth Factors.

  • Increasing diabetic patients.

The constant surge in the number of diabetic patients in Sweden is expected to contribute majorly towards the market growth of the portable glucose monitor market during the next few years as the portable glucose monitor helps to monitor the glucose levels in the blood of diabetic patients. According to the International Diabetes Federation, 1 in 5 people who are above 65 years old has diabetes. The geriatric population in Sweden has been on the rise which enhances the risk of diabetes in the population aged above 65 years. According to Sweden.se, 20% Sweden citizens have passed the standard retirement age of 65. This number is projected to rise to 23% cent by 2040. The rise in the geriatric population will in turn accelerate the number of diabetic patients in the country which will result in the increase in the demand and adoption of portable glucose monitors in the market in the long run. 


  • Unfavorable reimbursement policies.

The major restraint for the portable glucose monitor market in Sweden is the unfavorable reimbursement policies associated with it. Many medical claim providers and medical insurance companies located in Sweden do not reimburse the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes, which makes patients apprehensive about going forward with the treatment as it is a costly affair. The unfavorable reimbursement policies may hamper the market growth as if the patients are unable to claim the expenses, they will try to avoid the diagnosis and treatment which in turn will restrict the market growth during the forecast period.

Covid 19 Impact On Sweden Portable Glucose Monitor Market

The Covid-19 pandemic moderately impacted the Sweden portable glucose monitor market as due to the countrywide lockdown restrictions, many patients deferred their ongoing treatments and postponed their diagnosis to avoid public places which hampered the market growth. However, the diabetic patients who regularly use portable glucose monitors as a part of their treatment balanced the market growth during the novel pandemic.
