Insulin maintains sugar levels in the blood and is essential for people who have type I diabetes & type II diabetes. Therefore, the development of insulin-delivery devices has been encouraged in the past years. These devices deliver insulin doses via the parenteral route rather than the administration's oral route. Insulin delivery devices promote the absorption rate of insulin into the bloodstream from injection to execute the immediate pharmacological action of insulin. These devices help in infusing insulin from the bloodstream into the muscle. It can't be taken as a pill or a gulped fluid because the digestive system separates it before it arrives at the circulation system, where insulin accomplishes its work. In this manner, insulin is infused or implanted into the fatty tissue under the skin. Insulin devices treat type 1 diabetes to maintain a strategic distance from inconveniences emerging from hyperglycemia. Insulin is controlled fundamentally by subcutaneous insulin infusions like vials and syringes, insulin pens, and insulin siphons.


The growing prevalence of diabetes due to obesity, technological advancements in the medical sector, unhealthy lifestyles, and the growing geriatric population are majorly propelling the global insulin delivery devices market growth.

As per the statistics published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 37.3 million are living with diabetes, which is 11.3% of the total population of the United States and about 422 million people worldwide with diabetes, with the majority of sufferers living in low-income nations, according to WHO figures. Every year, diabetes causes roughly 1.5 million fatalities. About 9 million persons were given a type 1 diabetes diagnosis in 2019; most of them were from high-income nations. On the other hand, type 2 diabetes predominates globally, accounting for around 95% of all cases. Growing consumer awareness of the availability of several delivery devices is anticipated to favor market growth. Furthermore, the growing normality of hyperglycemia, creating determination of self-injectable gadgets, and rising F.D.A. support are expected to boost the insulin delivery devices market growth.

A growing number of people who have diabetes, rising exposure of the population to diabetes risk factors, changes in lifestyle habits, and increasing demand for human insulin drive the growth of the global insulin delivery devices market. Besides, favorable medical reimbursements, increasing healthcare expenditure, and rising advancements in human insulin delivery device technologies further favor market growth. Furthermore, the growing focus of market players on the development & commercialization of advanced human insulin delivery devices (such as pens & portable insulin pumps), along with the rising research and development in the same, is fueling the growth of the global insulin delivery devices market.

Innovations in the systems to promote market growth. For instance, The FDA approved the first generation's MiniMed 530G artificial pancreas in 2013. In addition, the FDA gave Medtronic's MiniMed 770G system, a hybrid closed-loop diabetes management device, its approval on September 1st, 2020. With the invention of this new insulin delivery method, the procedure is now simpler than before, promoting the demand for the market. 


However, stringent regulatory policies for product approval and the requirement of high costs for product manufacturing are restraining the growth of the global insulin delivery devices market. Furthermore, artificial pancreas and home infusion therapy are among the major trends in this market, affecting this market growth. In addition, high costs for insulin and the rising cost of insurance coverage may hamper the market's growth. 

Impact of COVID-19 on the insulin delivery devices market:

The COVID-19 pandemic is putting severe risk on people with diabetes. Recent studies show that around 25% of severe COVID-19 symptoms have diabetes. The immune system gets weak with high blood sugar levels, whereas the patient with COVID-19 has severe complications. Therefore, the demand for insulin delivery devices has leveled up during the peak stage of COVID-19 and created an acceleration in the market's growth for a short period. To avoid getting sick with the infection, many diabetic patients seek advice from doctors online and adopt the latest technologies. If the blood sugar levels are appropriately managed, the risk of COVID-19 disease gets lower. So, taking proper medication is very important for diabetic patients in this outbreak as insulin delivery devices effectively deliver appropriate dosage forms. The patient can have balanced glucose levels, reducing the death risk of COVID-19.

This research report on the global insulin delivery devices market has been segmented based on the type, application, and region.

Insulin Delivery Devices Market -By Type:

  • Insulin Syringes
  • Insulin Pens
  • Insulin Pen Needles
  • Insulin Pumps
  • Insulin Jet Injectors

The insulin pens segment was the leader among all types in 2022. During the forecast period, the insulin pens segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.7% from 2022 to 2027. The adoption of insulin pens is more compared to all available types, which was what led to the domination of the segment in the market in 2021. The growing efforts of manufacturers, increasing R&D efforts on insulin pens, and rising adoption of technological advancements in manufacturing activities of insulin pens are further propelling the segment's growth. Insulin jet injections are needleless, while insulin pumps are effectively wearable by patients. In addition, each device has a unique attribute. Therefore, insulin pens are projected to play a key role in the global insulin delivery devices market. The insulin pens segment is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR during the forecast period.

The insulin syringes segment accounted for a substantial share of the global insulin delivery devices market in 2022. While insulin syringes are easy-to-use and managed devices. However, insulin syringes are relatively less expensive than insulin pens, which is one of the factors promoting the adoption of insulin syringes and resulting in segment growth.  

Insulin Delivery Devices Market - By Application:

  • Type I Diabetes
  • Type II Diabetes

Based on the application, the Type II diabetes segment dominated the insulin delivery devices market in 2022. The lead of the type II diabetes segment is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Due to the numerous treatment options available for type 2 diabetic patients, there are varied applications for the condition leading to the segment's growth. 

However, type 1 diabetes patients also use devices like insulin pumps, syringes, pens, and others to deliver a steady amount of insulin to the body. Additionally, the rise in type 1 diabetes diagnoses is expected to support the rise in the segment. The International Diabetes Federation (2017) estimates that each year in Europe, 28,000 children under the age of 19 are given a type 1 diabetes diagnosis. In addition, this market sector is expected d to be driven by increased access to insulin for type 1 diabetes in developed nations.
