The Market for Diabetes Drugs, Devices and Disease Management


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

This report covers the market for: diabetes drugs (insulin and oral antidiabetic drugs); therapies for diabetic complications (antihypertensive drugs and skin care therapy); and diabetic devices (diabetes monitoring systems, e.g. blood glucose meters, glucose tests strips; glucose and ketone urine tests; and insulin delivery systems, etc.). This report examines all the current changes taking place in the industry and provides data and forecasts for all the diabetes products. Additionally, the report discusses legislation, healthcare industry changes and important demographic changes that will impact the industry for years to come. Competitor profiles and market share provide essential strategic information for planning and marketing.


Scope and Methodology

This report quantifies and analyzes the market for diabetes drugs and devices in terms of size, products, research and development trends, industry structure, distribution channels and marketing strategies, market environment, and health-care management. The report is limited to an investigation of the U.S. market. Dollar values in this report are reported at the manufacturers level and are expressed in current dollars. Historical data are provided for 1995 through 1998. The base year is 1999. Projections are provided for 2000 through 2004.

The diabetes drugs covered in this report are as follows:

  • Insulin;
  • Sulfonylureas;
  • Biguanides;
  • Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors;
  • Meglitinides; and
  • Thiazolidinediones.

The market for diabetes devices is divided into two separate segments: diabetes monitoring devices, and insulin delivery devices. Monitoring devices include the following:

  • Blood glucose meters;
  • Blood glucose test strips;
  • Glucose and ketone urine test strips;
  • Lancets and lancing devices; and
  • Noninvasive and minimally invasive monitoring devices.

Insulin delivery devices include the following:

  • Syringes;
  • Injector pens;
  • Jet injectors; and
  • External infusion pumps and supplies.

Both primary and secondary research was conducted for this report. Personal interviews with company executives were the major sources of information. Secondary information for this study contributed to background information and was provided through literature searches, directories, journal articles, and medical textbooks.

Demographic and incidence and prevalence information was obtained from the CDC and the U.S. Bureau of the Census (Washington, DC). The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA; Bethesda, MD) was another key source of information.

All companies profiled in this report, together with many others, were contacted, and staff were interviewed when possible. Annual reports and 10-K reports provided the financial data for public companies.
