U.K. Insulin Pump Market size, by type

An increase in the incidence of diabetes due to aging, obesity, and an unhealthy lifestyle is one of the factors contributing to the growth of the market. Obesity is a major factor causing diabetes leading to the increased incidences of diabetes-associated ophthalmic disorders. In 2017, the global incidence of diabetes was reported for around 22.9 million, the prevalence accounted for around 476.0 million, around 1.37 million deaths were reported due to diabetes, and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) associated with diabetes were reported to around 1.37 million. According to the WHO, in 2017, over 1.9 billion adults were overweight, of which, around 650 million people were classified as obese. Risk factors, such as obesity and overweight, are leading to an increase in the incidence of type II diabetes. Therefore, risk factors such as smoking, overweight, obesity, and high cholesterol are expected to boost the prevalence of type II diabetes.

Diabetes is a clinical condition where the inability of the pancreas to produce insulin causes decreased glucose levels in the body. The rapidly changing lifestyle such as the consumption of alcohol and smoking are contributing to the rise in the number of diabetes patients, worldwide. Moreover, the growing prevalence of obesity across the globe is another factor contributing to the high prevalence of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes (T1D) requires continuous monitoring of blood glucose coupled with multiple injections of insulin, thereby increasing the scope for the growth of pumps and other insulin delivery devices and glucose monitors.

An insulin pump is a machine that enables insulin to be delivered either manually or automatically. These pumps can be programmed to deliver a specific set of doses and can also deliver a larger set of doses of insulin whenever required, such as before a meal. Patients can connect these devices to their smartphones to calibrate blood glucose readings. People with diabetes face many daily challenges such as knowing what to eat, understanding medical advice, and the impact of food and activity on sugar.

With the increase in awareness regarding diabetes management and care, electronic insulin pumps are being favored by both doctors and consumers. This can be attributed to the fact that new-generation pumps are convenient, safe, and provide accurate results compared to traditional methods. The anytime-anywhere nature of digital technology enables patients to address their health issues by connecting with the healthcare team and sharing data. The aforementioned factors are expected to propel the growth of the market. Furthermore, the increasing number of initiatives being undertaken by governments and nonprofit organizations to increase awareness about diabetes is expected to boost the adoption of insulin pumps used for the treatment.

Insulin Pump Market Trends

The prevalence of diabetes is increasing globally and is one of the leading causes of death, with an increased chance of acquiring a variety of other health issues. The number of people diagnosed with type1 diabetes is also rising thereby, boosting the market growth. Furthermore, the market is driven as people have become more aware of the disease by the growing senior population, and increasingly sedentary lifestyles.

According to the IDF (International Diabetes Foundation) Atlas, diabetes will be responsible for around 6.7 million fatalities in 2021 and the overall number of diabetic patients is predicted to increase by 51% by 2045.

Increasing government initiatives for global awareness about medicare policies and the management of diabetes are also fuelling the market growth. Furthermore, there has been a rise in healthcare spending, and increase in the demand for improved tubeless insulin pumps that are both unobtrusive and user pleasant. This is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.


High long-term expenditures concerned with tubeless insulin pumps are expected to hamper corporate expansion. The high long-term expenses associated with diabetes treatment and care using tubeless pumps affect the adoption rate of these devices in emerging economies. In some countries, poor reimbursement scenarios make it unaffordable for many. Factors such as these are expected to limit the market growth.

The growing popularity of naturopathy across the world, and the enforcement of strict regulations for product approval are other significant barriers that limit the growth of the insulin pumps market.
