Global Digital Diabetes Management Overview
Diabetes is a disease in which glucose levels in the body shoots up on account of less secretion of insulin from the pancreas and the inability of insulin to maintain the blood glucose levels in the body. There are three main types of diabetes which include Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes and Gestational diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is one of the most common form of diabetes occurring these days. If the glucose level spikes up in the body, it is medically termed as hyperglycemia, whereas, if the glucose level goes down, it is medically referred to as hypoglycemia.
Diabetes have the potential to cause a spectrum of health related problems which includes hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state, diabetic ketoacidosis, chronic kidney diseases, different types of cardiovascular diseases or it can even lead to death. Diabetes management comprises of connected devices, application driven applications, test strip supplies and educating patients to manage their blood glucose levels effectively. Certain apps and devices help to track and maintain a record which further help physicians to provide the best advice for effective treatment of patients. For long term monitoring and control, digital diabetes management solutions have gained a prime importance.

Increasing Prevalence of Diabetes
Number of people suffering from diabetes are increasing at a higher pace across the world. For a diabetic patient, it becomes mandatory to manage the blood glucose levels in the body to lead a normal healthy life. Diabetes has become one of the common medical disorders all over the world. According to International Diabetic Federation, 425 million people are suffering from diabetes across the globe and 82 million people in the South East Region, by the year 2045, this will rise to 151 million. There were over 72 million cases of diabetes in India during the year 2017. This enhancement in the diabetic population across different regions of the world is anticipated to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.
Growing Geriatric Population
The growing rate of geriatric population across the globe is directly related to the increase in the diabetic population as the impaired glucose regulation and sudden hormonal changes occur in people who grow old. According to National Institute of Health (NIH), older population across the world is anticipated to enhance in an unprecedented manner. Worldwide, 8.5% of the total world population (617 million) are aged 65 and over. According to the latest report, this percentage is anticipated to rise approximately 17% of the total global population by the year 2050 (1.6 billion). Therefore, the growing rate of older population that is more prone to diabetes is estimated to fuel the growth of the market over the forecast period.
Digital diabetes management is very expensive and there is a lack of reimbursement in the developing nations, due to which, people are adopting and accepting traditional diabetes management devices. These factors are expected to restrain the growth of the market over the forecast period.
