Market Intel: Needle-Free Glucose Monitoring, Digital Solutions Are Game-Changers In Growing Diabetes-Monitoring Market
The global blood glucose monitoring devices market is expected to exceed $7bn by 2022, driven by the smaller, but fastest-growing continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) segment, which is expanding at double-digits. The much bigger blood glucose meter (BGM) segment, meanwhile, is facing increased competition from lower-cost manufacturers, innovative startups and tech giants like Apple that are attracting consumers with smart devices and packaged diabetes management solutions. This first of a two-part series looks more closely at the competitive landscape of the two major product segments – BGM and CGM – with insights from endocrinologists. The second part will focus on the pros and cons of using diabetes management apps and highlights the best diabetes apps.
