DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Diabetes Care Devices Market Global Briefing 2018" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The Global Diabetes Care Devices Market Briefing 2018 covers market characteristics, size and growth, segmentation, regional breakdowns, competitive landscape, market shares, trends and strategies for this market.
The diabetes care devices industry manufactures blood glucose monitoring devices and insulin delivery devices. Diabetes care devices are designed to diagnose, monitor or manage type I and type II diabetes mellitus. Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar.
Asia Pacific was the largest region in the diabetes care devices market in 2017, accounting for around 40% market share. North America was the second largest region accounting for around 21% market share. Middle East was the smallest region accounting for around 5% market share.
The artificial pancreas is a system that measures blood glucose levels on a minute-to-minute basis using a continuous glucose monitor (CGM), and transmits this information to an insulin pump that calculates and releases the required amount of insulin into the body. It consists of three essential components - a glucose sensor system, a control algorithm, and an insulin infusion device.
This system is more effective than conventional insulin delivery devices as it automates insulin dosing based on blood sugar levels. Key companies in this industry are focusing on developing such systems. Medtronic recently gained US FDA approval for its artificial pancreas system, MiniMed 670G.
