Market Overview:

Insulin is a hormone that helps in lowering blood sugar levels. Insulin therapy is often an essential part of diabetes treatment. It is made by the beta cells of the pancreas and released into the blood when glucose levels rise, for example, after eating. Insulin helps the glucose to get into the body cells, which can be used for energy or stored for future use. Different types of insulin available varies in how quickly and for how long they can control blood sugar. Insulin does not come in pill form because the digestive system would break it down before it could work. Insulin therapy is exhausting; however, it is an effective way of lowering blood sugar levels.

The key factors that are driving the insulin market growth are increasing incidence of diabetes followed by rapid technological development in insulin delivery devices are the major driving factor promoting the growth of the insulin market. However, risk associated with insulin delivery devices is expected to restrict the insulin market growth during the forecast period. Europe occupies second position in the global insulin market and is expected to register robust growth rate over the forecast period. Increasing incidences of type 1 and type 2 diabetes, rising demand for insulin, and the favorable government initiatives for diabetes treatment are likely to be the major factors driving the insulin market growth of the region.

There has been a rise in advancements in diabetes treatment over the past few years. As the prevalence of diabetes is increasing worldwide, the demand for more advanced products is also boosting. The insulin market is expected to grow owing to an increase in the strategic efforts made by the industry players. The market players actively support their public and private research and academic institutes for increasing research activities.

A few of the recent developments related to rapid technological advancement in the insulin market are mentioned below:

  • In May 2022, Eli Lilly and Company received USFDA approval for its Mounjar (tirzepatide) once-weekly Glucose-Dependent Insulinotropic Polypeptide (GIP) and GLP-1 Glucagon-like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes. The injection is decided to be available in six doses (2.5 mg, 5 mg, 7.5 mg, 10 mg, 12.5 mg, and 15 mg) as an auto-injector pen with a preattached, hidden needle.
  • In Oct 2021, Adocia announced that its partner Tonghua Dongbua Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. received the clearance from the Center for Drug Evaluation (CDE) of the China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) to conduct the Phase 3 clinical trial of BioChaperone Lispro, and Ultra-Rapid Insulin for the treatment of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

Segment Analysis:

Based on type, the insulin market is segmented into long-acting insulin, rapid acting insulins, short acting insulins and traditional human insulins, concentrated insulins and combination insulins, biosimilar insulins, Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), pens and needles, and others. The long-acting insulin segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share in 2021 and however, biosimilar insulins segment is expected to register the highest CAGR of 16.0 % during the forecast period. The major driving factors for the growth of the biosimilar insulins segment are increasing applications of inbred mice in cardiovascular & immunology studies and the production of monoclonal antibodies, among others. Longer-acting insulin analogs are genetically engineered. Long-acting insulin analogs were initially developed to address the need of diabetics to maintain healthy blood sugar levels throughout the night. This insulin is slowly released into the circulation due to its acidic pH, causing it to precipitate when injected subcutaneously. Long-acting insulins are also called basal or background insulins. They keep working in the background to keep the blood sugar under control throughout the daily routine. These long-acting insulins help in controlling blood sugar for a whole day. This is similar to how the pancreas produces insulin to maintain blood sugar levels between meals. The National Health Service (NHS) has favored long-acting insulin analogs because the insulins do not have peak activity, allowing activity to be delivered consistently throughout the day.

Tresiba is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar levels in adults and children aged 1 year and older with diabetes. It is not suitable for people with diabetic ketoacidosis. Tresiba contains the active ingredient insulin degludec. Tresiba is usually injected under the skin once a day at any time of the day. Long-acting insulins work continuously throughout the day to control your blood sugar between meals and overnight. It is available in 2 concentrations namely 200 units/ml and 100 units/ml. Tresiba is supplied in multidose vials or as a FlexTouch pen for single patient use. Tresiba FlexTouch is a single-use, pre-filled pen available in two different strengths, U-100 (100 units/mL) containing 300 units of insulin and U-200 (200 units/mL) containing 600 units of insulin. Tresiba must not be administered with an insulin pump or mixed with other insulins. Side effects commonly associated with Tresiba include hypoglycemia, allergic reactions, injection site reactions, lipodystrophy, pruritus, rash, edema, and weight gain.
