Artificial Pancreas Device System Market Clinical Review, Drug Descriptions, Analysis And Synthesis 2016-2024

Press Release

Eating habits of type 1 diabetes patients is highly curtailed, complemented by regular administration of insulin. Type 1 diabetes patients require multiple doses of insulin in a day and all-round the year. Advancements in research and technology has led to commercialization of easy-to-use insulin delivery systems such as insulin pens, pumps, inhaled insulin, and injectors. Use of syringes to deliver insulin has become obsolete with the introduction of advanced and easy-to-use insulin delivery systems mentioned above. Moreover, these systems offer the convenience to self-administer insulin at home.

An artificial pancreas is a novel concept that promises to revolutionize the entire diabetes market. The system automatically detects glucose level in patient’s blood or plasma and accordingly administers the necessary dosage of insulin. Medtronic’s MiniMed 670G is one such wearable artificial pancreas. The system is automated to monitor glucose levels and deliver insulin through an insulin pump attached to the system. The artificial pancreas system comprises a transmitter, sensor, and insulin pump. This helps in continuous monitoring and diabetes management at ease.

Market Dynamics

The artificial pancreas device system (APDS) market growth would be mainly driven by increasing adoption of the highly useful systems the large base of diabetes type 1 patients, further supplemented by ever increasing incidence of type 1 diabetes. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), number of diabetes patients worldwide increased from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. According to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), there were around 1.5 million type 1 diabetics worldwide in 2015. JDRF funds research in diabetes 1 and the non-profit organization expected the first artificial pancreas to be commercialized in 2017.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), type 1 diabetes accounts for around 5% of the total diagnosed diabetes cases in adults in the U.S. Developed regions are expected to dominate the artificial pancreas device system (APDS) market size, as these regions are early adopters of disruptive technologies. With the introduction of this technology, market for insulin pens and injectors is expected to be impacted negatively.

Technological advancements to drive growth of the global artificial pancreas device system (APDS) market

In 2016, the U.S. FDA approved a hybrid closed-loop artificial pancreas device system (APDS) MiniMed 670G which is an automated system. The continuous glucose monitor in the system automatically sends signals to the insulin pump to deliver insulin when the glucose level in body goes beyond the acceptable limit. Thus, there is no need for the user to stimulate the release of insulin every time the glucose level is abnormal. This provide the user freedom to perform his/her daily activities.

Key companies covered as a part of this study include Medtronic, Medtrum, Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc., Johnson & Johnson, Beta Bionics, Bigfoot Biomedical, and Insulet Corporation.

Lack of reimbursement to hinder artificial pancreas device system (APDS) market growth

The prevalence of T1D in the U.S. is 1.35 million which is expected to increase to 5 million by 2050 as per the estimates (2016) by JDRF. Each year 40,000 people are diagnosed with T1D in the U.S. according to the JDRF. With this huge patient base, potential opportunity for artificial pancreas device system (APDS) looks considerably high at global level. However, lack of reimbursement for glucose sensors is expected to inhibit the uptake of artificial pancreas device system (APDS). With an average cost of US$ 6000-7000, adoption of artificial pancreas device system (APDS) is estimated to be restricted among rich T1D patients. Furthermore, only a few T1D patient group prefer insulin pumps for treatment. According to the 2013 report of JDRF, about 350,000 insulin pumps were sold in the U.S. Thus, creating awareness should also be an objective of artificial pancreas device system manufacturers to increase its adoption.
