91 Pages | 27 Exhibits | 2018 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2022 Product Family: Market Reports

This report includes an overview of blood glucose monitoring devices, technological innovations, competition, trends, and expected market growth. Market analysis includes 5-year market forecasts by segment and region, drivers/limiters, market share, and corporate strategies for success.


  • The blood glucose monitoring devices market totalled more than $6.6bn in 2017.
  • The market includes two segments: blood glucose meters (BGMs) and new continuous blood glucose monitoring systems (CGMs).
  • The CGMs segment is exhibiting double-digit growth and is expected to drive the market forward, while the larger BGMs segment is declining due to cuts in reimbursement, market saturation of lower-cost meters, and other factors.
  • The blood glucose monitoring devices market will be driven by the large and growing prevalence of diabetes worldwide and the strong need for accurate blood glucose monitoring devices for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes on insulin therapy, as well as to prevent the progression of diabetes in the larger non-insulin dependent population, and to control spiralling diabetes-related healthcare costs. The market will also be driven by greater availability and affordability of next-generation, wireless, smartphone-based diabetes management systems & non-invasive wearables, such as glucose monitoring patches.
  • What is the value of the global blood glucose monitoring devices markets? What is the expected growth for each segment over the next 5 years?
  • What is the expected market growth by major region of the world (US, 5EU, Japan, and RoW)?
  • What are key market drivers & limiters?
  • Who are the leading competitors? What is their estimated market share, and strategic growth strategies?
  • Technological innovations & trends?
  • What emerging start-ups have developed innovative technologies that may impact the market?
