(PharmaNewsWire.Com, January 05, 2017 ) Diabetes mellitus is one of the most widely prevalent endocrine disorder of carbohydrate metabolism. Over the last couple of years, there has been a significant rise in diabetes mellitus cases worldwide. Sedentary lifestyle coupled with unhealthy dietaries leads to obesity which in turn is fueling diabetic cases. Glucose sensors is a compact analytical device or a unit incorporating a biological or biologically derived sensitive recognition element integrated with physiochemical transducer. Self-monitoring blood glucose investigated in diabetes mellitus is essential for insulin treatment or oral glucose lowering medication to provide information of glucose concentrations in our body. These sensors has proved quite efficient in monitoring the glucose level in human body, thus gaining wide popularity among healthcare practitioners for assessment purpose.
Glucose Sensor Market: Drivers and restraints
As per the World Health Organization (WHO) diabetes is the seventh leading cause for death. Incidence rate is quite high when compared to other chronic disorder. In 2014, around 382 million were diagnosed with diabetes. Changing lifestyle is expected to further extrapolate the diabetic cases globally. Increasing cases of diabetes is expected to drive the overall demand of glucose sensors devices. Accurate and precise data offered by glucose monitoring sensors than that of conventional devices is another leading driver for this market. Diabetic patients are inclined towards noninvasive techniques such as sensors. More number of people becoming health conscious and use of sensors are increasing gradually. Macroeconomic factors such as increasing healthcare expenditure is expected to further driver the market over the forecast period. Though the market is expected to generate significant revenue throughout the forecast period, high cost of these sensors compared to that of glucose monitoring meters is a major challenge for overall growth of the market.
Glucose Sensor Market can be segmented on the bases of region, product type, technologies, and end-users.
Trans Dermal Sensors
Micro pore/ Micro needles
Photo Acoustic Spectroscopy
Optical Coherence Tomography
