Inflation and Looming Recession to Haunt Businesses:

In 2022 & 2023, market players expected to sail in rough waters; might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain. Further, U.S. economy is expected to grow merely by 3% in 2022. Purchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%.
On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.

Global Blood Glucose Monitoring System Market Definition

A blood glucose monitoring system involves the use of a blood glucose meter to measure the blood glucose level of a patient. A blood glucose meter is a small, handy, and portable machine.  People with diabetes often use a blood glucose monitoring system to manage their condition, keep their diabetes in check, and help determine their next insulin dose. Blood glucose monitoring examines patterns in the variations in blood glucose levels that result from changes in diet, exercise, prescription drug use, or pathological conditions such as diabetes that are correlated to blood glucose variations.

Abnormal blood sugar levels have the potential to cause immediate or long-term, life-threatening complications. Diabetes mellitus is caused by either a shortage of insulin or by the body’s failure to respond effectively to insulin's effects. Insulin production or absorption dysfunction can trigger impaired blood glucose levels. Patients who have low blood glucose levels and fasting blood glucose levels have a higher possibility of developing diabetes. Blood glucose monitoring can help in the treatment and diagnosis of patients who have impaired glucose metabolism or diabetes.

People can check their blood sugar levels promptly, easily, and conveniently with the help of blood sugar monitors. Following that, people can leverage this insight to take the proper measures, such as taking insulin or eating carbohydrates, to bring their blood glucose levels within the recommended range. There are three types of blood glucose monitoring devices, comprising glucometers, continuous glucose monitors (CGM), and non-invasive glucose monitors, that help in monitoring glucose levels. A blood glucose monitor (BGM) or glucometer is a compact device that comes with lancets and detects a person's blood sugar levels from a small sample, generally from the tip of a finger. Whereas, a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) comprises a tiny sensor implanted underneath the skin. This device is useful for individuals who need to check their blood sugar levels on a regular basis. Non-invasive glucose monitors use a variety of techniques including electrochemical, optical, and microwave technologies to detect blood glucose levels.

In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the market growth of blood glucose monitoring systems include the rise in the stances of obesity among individuals. Since, obesity leads to several kinds of health disorders and diabetes is one of them that affects obese people in a high ratio. Based on a report released by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 2022, obesity affects more than one billion people globally, comprising 650 million adults, 340 million teenagers, and 39 million children. This figure is still rising. Additionally, the growing ratio of physical inactivity, followed by the family history and genetic mutation, and hormonal disorders can also cause an increased level of blood glucose. Therefore, all of these major factors are predicted to present a prominent expansion to the market’s growth over the projected period.

Global Blood Glucose Monitoring System Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Perforation of Continuous Blood Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Devices – CGMs are being used by those patients who need to continuously detect their blood glucose levels. Moreover, CGM offers an immediate monitoring feature for insulin-dependent patients. Hence, these devices have been getting much popularity as these features are estimated to spur market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in the United States, the number of people using continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) devices reached approximately 3 million in 2020.

  • Rising Ubiquity of Diabetes – For instance, in 2021, China, Mexico, India, the United States, and Brazil accounted for around 50% of the global diabetes population.

  • Increase in the Number of Patients with type-1 or Insulin-Dependent type-2 Diabetes – For instance, according to a report in 2021, it was evaluated that the incidence of type-1 diabetes was 149.5 per 1000 children and the global prevalence was around 9.8% among the total population.

  • Growing Investment in Diabetic Research Activities – In the United States, more than USD 860 million were invested in over 4,800 diabetes research projects over the last 70 years.

  • Increasing Access to Health Care and Health Expenditures - As per the data from the World Bank, 9.83% of the global GDP was spent on health expenditures in 2019.


  • Lower Diagnosis & Treatment Rate of DiabetesIn developing and underdeveloped countries, a large proportion of people remain undiagnosed owing to a lack of awareness and associated costs. Moreover, lack of access to medical facilities and poor healthcare infrastructure are also major concerns for the lower treatment rates of diabetes in such regions. Therefore, this factor is estimated to hinder market growth over the projected time frame.
  • Low Reimbursement Policies for the Blood Glucose Monitoring System
  • Inadequate Approach to Advanced Healthcare Infrastructure

Market Segmentation

The global blood glucose monitoring system market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by product into self-monitoring devices, and continuous glucose monitoring devices.
