Pen Needles Market- Market Dynamics

Rising prevalence of diabetes is one of the major drivers for growth of the pen needles market. According to the International Diabetes Federation’s (IDF) Diabetes Atlas 2017, around 425 million patients were suffering from diabetes worldwide by end of 2017. By 2045, this figure is expected to reach around 629 million. Moreover, over 40% people are still undiagnosed with diabetes especially in regions such as Asia Pacific and Middle East and some part of North Africa. Some of these patients require insulin therapy, which in turn would propel growth of the market for pen needles. Diabetes is one of the top three cause of death from non-communicable disease as per World Health Organization (WHO) 2012 factsheet. The average patient with type-2 diabetes injects around 60,000 units over a period of 10-12 years of insulin treatment. Increasing geriatric population is expected to be another driver for pen needles market growth as older people need insulin therapy more often due to suppressed pancreatic activity with aging. As per current IDF estimation, there were 98 million diabetic people in 2017 over the age of 65 years, which is expected to rise to 191 million by 2045.
