Flash glucose monitoring system consists of two major components; a sensor which is wore just underneath the skin and a reader which is when waved over the sensor, it displays glucose level of the body. This continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system is able to store data of individual’s blood sugar or blood glucose level and individuals are able to see and check any time just by scanning the scanner with reader device. Further, this flash glucose monitoring is a very efficient tool to maintain proper blood sugar level on a daily basis. Furthermore, flash glucose monitoring is very helpful to maintain glucose level of the body of those individuals who are suffering from diabetic disease. Therefore, the significantly growing prevalence of diabetes is fueling up the growth of the flash glucose monitoring market. As per the data provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), presently, there are approximately 422 million diabetics worldwide, and diabetes is one of the leading cause of 1.5 million yearly fatalities.

Global Flash Glucose Monitoring Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers
