U.S. Continuous Glucose Monitoring Devices Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The U.S. continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) devices market accounted for a 33% revenue share of the global market in 2023. Obesity, improper lifestyle patterns, and aging are the potential factors leading to diabetes, thereby contributing to diabetes.  The CDC reports that in the U.S., approximately 34.2 million people, or 10.5% of the population, have diabetes. This includes both diagnosed and undiagnosed cases. According to CDC, 37.3 million people are suffering from diabetes, out of which 28.7 million people are diagnosed and around 8.5 million people have undiagnosed diabetes. Furthermore, there are a large number of people who are undiagnosed or have prediabetes, which is a condition where blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be classified as diabetes. For instance, according to CDC, 122.4 million people have prediabetes, among which 96 million people are 18 years and above and 26.4 million people are aged 65 & above. The rise in the prevalence of obesity and diabetes can be attributed to various factors such as unhealthy diet, sedentary lifestyle, and heredity. These conditions can increase the risk of several other health problems, including heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer.

The increasing incidence of prediabetes is also fueling market growth. Prediabetes is a condition in which sugar levels in blood are higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as type 2 diabetes. It is a serious health condition that can increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Unfortunately, the number of people diagnosed with prediabetes is rapidly growing. The main reason for the increase in prediabetes cases is the rise in obesity rates. The increasing incidence of prediabetes is also fueling market growth. Prediabetes is a critical condition that poses a high risk of type 2 diabetes among people. With the surge in obesity, the incidences of prediabetes are rapidly increasing.  According to the CDC and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, it is estimated that 97.6 million adults in the U.S. 18 years or above had prediabetes in 2021. According to crude estimates for the years 2017 to 2020, around 38% of all adults in the U.S. had prediabetes based on their A1C level or fasting glucose. Only 19% of adults with prediabetes had been informed by a health professional of their condition.

The advent of CGM devices is significantly impacting diabetes management. Furthermore, real-time monitoring features, glucose level alerts, and lifestyle suggestions offered by these devices contribute to the high demand for CGM devices among individuals. This demand in turn accelerates the growth opportunities in the market. Several companies are actively involved in developing innovative CGM devices to sustain their position in the market. Moreover, regulatory approvals for these devices boost the market growth. For instance, in March 2024, Stelo, the first glucose biosensor manufactured by US-based Dexcom, Inc received US FDA approval. Such technological advances will likely accelerate the demand for CGM devices in the market over the forecast period.
