Further, the diabetes devices market is restricted by the high costs of diagnosis and treatment. Moreover, reimbursement issues and patent expiry are also an issue. The diabetes devices offer a solution for diabetes patients to manage glucose in the blood.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global diabetes devices market:

COVID-19 is a worldwide public health emergency affecting almost every sector. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the FDA provided guidelines to increase the availability and capability of non-invasive remote tracking systems, such as continuous glucose monitors (CGM). In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the need to evaluate the effectiveness of CGM in hospitals to conserve personal protective equipment (PPE) and limit the exposure of healthcare workers. Diabetes is a chronic condition characterized by the pancreas' failure to contain enough insulin or the body's inability to use the insulin it produces effectively. Due to insulin production, diabetes devices are often used to determine blood sugar levels in the body. Diabetic patients are given care to accurately control their blood glucose levels and improve their recovery from this chronic condition. Care providers and patients constantly use diabetic devices to check blood glucose levels regularly. The increase is primarily due to the COVID-19 epidemic, which puts diabetes at a higher risk of severe illness. Diabetic patients are also more susceptible to coronavirus infection. As a result, rising COVID-19 cases are expected to accelerate the development of diabetes care devices.
