LAS VEGAS, Nov. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Devices are used to monitor glucose level throughout day and night. A sensor is placed under the skin which measures the glucose level in tissue fluid. A transmitter is connected to the sensor which transfers information via wireless radio frequency. This transmitter is connected to monitoring and display device. These devices are used to monitor blood glucose level of diabetic patients. Diabetes is a chronic disease which is classified into type 1 and type 2. Diabetes occurs either when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin. The symptoms of diabetes are frequent urination, blurred vision, increased thirst, rapid weight loss, numbness or tingling sensation in hands or feet and increased hunger. Factors which increase the risk of diabetes are ethnicity, family history of diabetes, and physical inactivity. The exact causes of type 1 diabetes are unknown. Type 1 diabetes can be caused due to complex interaction between genes and environmental factors. The strongest risk factors for type 2 diabetes are overweight and obesity. Diabetes can damage the heart, eyes, blood vessels, kidneys, and nerves which may lead to disability and premature death. People with diabetes are likely to incur disastrous personal health expenditure. According to a study conducted by American Diabetes Association, 415 million people worldwide suffered from diabetes and diabetes related complications as of 2015, and this number is expected to reach 642 million by 2040. Over the past three decades, the predominance of diabetes is increasing, but it is growing at a higher rate in low and middle income countries. As per International Diabetes Federation, about 80% of the diabetic population resides in low and middle income countries.

Insulin pumps segment will witness a robust growth during the forecast period, while transmitters and receivers segment occupied a major share of the CGM devices market in 2016. Sensors are disposable components of the CGM systems which need to be replaced every 57 days. Homecare diagnostics segment dominated the global market in 2016, due to high convenience offered by CGM devices in homecare settings for regular monitoring of blood glucose.
North America held a major share of the overall market in 2015. This is attributed to factors such as high predominance of diabetes, growing geriatric population, and improving reimbursement policies. U.S. dominated the North American market owing to the presence of advanced healthcare infrastructure and high disposable income of Americans. Asia-Pacific will bring in significant growth opportunities over the forecast period as the awareness about patient monitoring systems is on the rise along with increased healthcare expenditure.
