Introduction & Scope

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES The aim of this report is to provide detailed market, technology and industry analyses to help readers quantify and qualify the market for drugs used in the treatment of diabetes, as well as the devices and instruments used for diagnosis and monitoring of diabetes. Special emphasis is given to the major forces contributing to the vigorous growth of the diabetes market. The report identified important trends and provides sales forecasts by product categories and major country markets through 2021; these are based on epidemiological data and projections, plus information on R&D trends and market potential on a country-by-country basis. Healthcare policies, demographics and the wider economic environment are also taken into account.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDYIt is widely recognized that the prevalence of the most common type of diabetes mellitus, type 2, is now reaching epidemic proportions all over the world. Cases of type 1 diabetes mellitus are also on the increase, although to a lesser degree. These trends are of great concern, not only to the individuals concerned, but also to governments and providers of healthcare, because the economic consequences of diabetes are vast. They involve not only the direct burden of managing the disease but also its common and often catastrophic complications, including cardiovascular disease, peripheral neuropathy and blindness. Prompt diagnosis and effective treatment of diabetes are not optional but essential priorities for governments and healthcare agencies. The already large market for diabetes monitoring and treatment will certainly grow in line with increasing incidence significance to the suppliers of the drugs used in treatment of the disease and the devices needed for monitoring. The information needs of companies in this field include accurate and up-to-date assessment of the current extent of the diabetes epidemic, its likely evolution over the next five years, and the impact of drugs and technical developments now in the pipeline.

SCOPE OF REPORT This report discusses the implications of the above-mentioned trends, in the context of the current size and growth of the diabetes market, in global terms as well as by the most important national markets.
