Follow us on LinkedIn – Insulin Pump therapy, also known as Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion (CSII) therapy, has gained prominence over the years with rising preference for painless alternatives of external insulin delivery. Driven by an aging population which represents a significant risk group, the market for insulin pumps (external) is expected to grow in the coming years. Given the alarming rise in obesity and its comorbid conditions including diabetes among the young population, manufacturers of insulin pumps are increasingly under pressure to offer comfort and style, in addition to its intended clinical benefits. The scenario has resulted in numerous product innovations transforming the humble insulin delivery device into a smart device. Few of the advanced features introduced over the years include bolus calculators, insulin on board, customized alarms/alerts, touch bolus, and interface to PCs, among others. The most significant feature in modern insulin pumps is the integration of Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) technology, which alerts the wearer to take action in case of low levels of glucose.
The insulin pumps market is also expected to benefit from the emergence of evidence supporting the advantages of intensive external insulin therapy in type 2 diabetes patients who have failed oral therapy. With over 90% of diabetes patients suffering from Type 2 diabetes, the scenario signals a large untapped market potential. The market hitherto dominated by a handful of players, is witnessing the influx of new players. Consequently, the market has witnessed the introduction of a number of patch pumps, designed particularly for Type 2 diabetes patients. With product differentiation deemed vital to capture market share, and the growing need to improve care and management of diabetes, innovation continues to remain crucial to survival in the market. As a result, the market is buoyed by advances in technology, enabling the evolution of external insulin pumps to closely mimic the natural process of insulin secretion by pancreas. The scenario has already led to the launch of innovative pumps with advanced features, such as touch screens and automatic suspension of insulin delivery upon detecting low glucose levels. As manufacturers race to design the most functional artificial pancreas system, the market for diabetes management products, including insulin pumps, is set for an optimistic outlook ahead.
