Currently, companies are focusing on continuous development and the introduction of innovative continuous glucose monitoring system devices to receive FDA approval for various brands, which has led to high competitiveness in the market. Scientists are conducting research and testing continuous glucose monitoring systems to provide effective systems and aid better management of diabetes.  Thus, there is scope for the introduction of new and advanced continuous glucose monitoring systems in the near future. Market players operating in the continuous glucose monitoring systems market are focused towards the integration of advanced technologies in products in order to offer variations and trends in the type of blood glucose level display.

On the other hand, the high cost of continuous glucose monitoring systems acts as a restrain for the growth of the market as treatment with continuous glucose monitoring systems costs around US$ 4,930 to US$ 7,120 per person. This makes it unaffordable for a large portion of the global population. For instance, glucose monitors used in continuous glucose monitoring systems cost between US$ 1,000 and US$ 1,400, while sensors cost between US$ 35 and US$ 100 apiece. Besides this, sensors have a very short lifespan – around 3 to 7 days – since they are prone to biofouling, which affects the accuracy of the continuous glucose monitoring systems.

Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems Market

Due to the lack of accuracy in the readings of glucose levels in critical cases, continuous glucose monitors are incapable of preventing severe hypoglycemia stage, in which the glucose level in the body is extremely low. For instance, continuous glucose monitoring systems are up to 21% less accurate when compared with actual plasma glucose values and this percentage increases when there is a rapid rise and fall in plasma glucose. According to the results of studies, it is estimated that the probable reason behind this problem is the real-time performance delay of continuous glucose monitoring systems.

Rising Prevalence of Diabetes and Integration of Artificial Pancreas Systems in continuous Glucose monitoring systems market

The increasing prevalence of diabetes worldwide is driving the demand for innovative and effective diabetic management devices such as continuous glucose monitoring systems. For instance, as per the International Diabetes Federation, 285 Million people worldwide suffered from diabetes in 2012; out of these, the U.S. accounted for approximately 18.8 Million cases. These facts indicate that the U.S. has high prevalence of diabetes and thus, has high market potential for continuous glucose monitoring systems.

Artificial pancreas device systems are effective in the management of diabetes. In artificial pancreas systems, continuous glucose monitoring systems technology is combined with insulin pumps in order to administer optimum dosage to manage blood-glucose levels. This will increase the demand for continuous glucose monitoring systems in the market.
