Market Overview

During the projected period, the Latin America Diabetes Devices Market is expected to increase at a CAGR of 6.8 %, reaching a total value of 2835 million USD in 2030.

Diabetes is a condition in which the pancreas is unable to produce insulin from serum. Untreated diabetes is caused by increased blood sugar levels. Diabetes medications are used in particular for diabetes diagnosis. The goal of diabetes treatment is to increase glucose levels in the body. Diabetes care gadgets are used to keep track of a diabetic's blood glucose levels. A continuous glucose monitor (CGM) is a medical gadget that continuously tracks and monitors a diabetic patient's blood glucose levels throughout the day. People with diabetes will benefit from this wearable device since it can help them manage their glucose levels. Ketone monitors, blood glucose monitors, continuous glucose monitors, insulin pumps, smart insulin pens, and diabetes management applications are all examples of diabetic monitoring devices. Glucose monitoring devices aid in the maintenance and control of glucose levels, hence enhancing the patient's health.

 Diabetic prevalence is significant in Latin American countries, and Mexico is noted for having a large number of diabetic patients due to the country's growing incidence of Type-2 diabetes. Type-2 diabetes affects the majority of diabetic patients in Latin America, accounting for about 90% of the total diabetic population.

Market Dynamics

Market Driving Factors

  • Increased Investment in R and D: Increased R&D in the field of diabetes, as well as increased awareness about disease care, are driving the market in Latin America. The investment is significant for diabetics because it will allow us to expand our offering of future insulin delivery and sensor advancements that have the potential to improve patients' diabetes management, and hence the new offerings as a result of this will enhance the demand of diabetic care devices in Asia Pacific region.
  • Improving diagnosis & treatment rates: Diabetes monitoring leads to better outcomes, provided that patients demonstrate adequate adherence, use the monitoring to make therapy adjustments, receive adequate education on how to respond to the measurements, and utilize the emerging power of these devices support that is increasingly associated with medical monitors and this is a significant driver in accelerating the demand for these useful devices.

Market Restraining Factors

  • The devices are expensive for a significant portion of the population: The high cost of continuous glucose monitoring devices is projected to limit the market's expansion in Latin America. Because of the sensors included in this system, a CGM system is more expensive than a basic glucose metre. These sensors have a short life period of 7-14 days and must be replaced on a regular basis. Thus, it may lead to a high cost for the device throughout the treatment due to repetitive replacement, which may lower the user acceptance of this device.
  • Low medical literacy rate and awareness: A large portion of the population in the Asia Pacific region comes from rural areas, where illiteracy rates are extremely high, as well as the level, quality, and awareness of medical facilities. As a result, many people are unaware of these devices and even of this disease, which may stymie market growth in this region.

Market Opportunities

  • Diabetic Population Boom in the Region: In 2020, diabetes and its complications are predicted to cause roughly 4 million deaths in people aged 20 to 79. This means that one person dies every eight minutes. Diabetic complications account for 11.30% of all deaths among adults in this age group worldwide. Diabetes and high glucose levels have been associated with an increased risk of complications, respiratory failure, and death in hospitalized Coronavirus patients.
  • Diabetes has been connected to a variety of health issues. People with diabetes have a 300% higher risk of being hospitalized than people without diabetes, resulting in higher healthcare costs. Children and teenagers are more prone to develop diabetes early due to their young age and longer diabetes duration, reducing their quality of life, shortening their life expectancy, and raising healthcare costs. As a result, diabetes is expected to grow more prevalent in the future. There is also concern that, as a result of modern lifestyle and technology advancements, diabetes will occur at a higher rate in kids and young adults, resulting in increased use of diabetes care devices in the Latin American Region.
