The increasing adoption of a cloud-based system for monitoring insulin levels will boost the market for intelligent insulin pens


Smart Insulin Pen Market

According to Future Market Insights, the global intelligent insulin market is expected to exceed $ 1 billion and grow with a positive CAGR between 2021 and 2031.

According to data released by the International Diabetes Federation, diabetes will affect nearly 700 million people between the ages of 20 and 70 worldwide by 2045. Such an increase in the number of diabetics around the world will create a favorable environment for the intelligent insulin pen market to grow.

The increase in diabetes patients around the world is due to the increasing incidences of obesity and sedentary lifestyle. The lack of physical activity made individuals the breeding ground for chronic illnesses, resulting in a great need for modern health systems.

Type II diabetics need a regular dose of insulin and frequent monitoring of insulin levels in the body. Smart Pen makes diabetes management hassle-free and more effective than traditional methods. The high effectiveness of intelligent insulin pens will drive market growth.

Non-invasive or minimally invasive surgeries are gaining popularity due to the documented incidence of patient trauma and injuries that cause further complications. Market participants are therefore working on the development of intelligent insulin jet injectors that enable insulin to be injected without the use of a needle.

These jet injectors allow insulin to cover a larger area of ​​skin compared to conventional insulin delivery methods. The introduction of such tools will create growth opportunities in the years to come.

“The increasing demand for non-invasive insulin delivery systems due to faster delivery and minimal needle trauma and injuries will have a positive impact on the market growth for intelligent insulin pens,” notes the FMI analyst.
