Visiongain’ has launched a new pharma report Global Diabetes Drugs Market 2017-2027: Insulin and Insulin Analogues, DPP-4 Inhibitors, Biguanides, GLP-1 Agonists, Alpha-glucosidases, SGLT-2 Inhibitors, Sulfonylureas and Others

The IDF (International Diabetes Federation) predicts that by 2035, the global number of diabetics will reach over 582 million. While the market associated with type 1 diabetes will grow in line with population rate, the type 2 diabetes market will expand much more rapidly due to the aging of the general population, poor dietary habits and sedentary lifestyles, the latter two of which can be attributed to a growing urbanised and westernised population.

As with most disease medications, the diabetes drug industry is prone to generic competition. Despite this, the market still attracts new interest from drug firms, giving rise to an influx of new diabetes therapies. Continued research in this area will either lead to the development of a drug that is a slight modification on a current existing class of diabetes drug, or will uncover a new molecular target entirely. Most of the drugs currently in development are modifications and improvements to existing therapies, such as longer-acting insulins and new DPP-4 inhibitors.

The lead analyst of the report commented “Owing to the growing incidence of diabetes worldwide, especially in the Middle East, the Western Pacific region and Asia, there continues to be a tremendous need for newer anti-diabetic treatments with improved efficacy and safety, which translates to significant opportunities for drug manufacturers operating in this potentially lucrative market.

Moreover, as obesity is closely related to type 2 diabetes, medications that target long-term weight reduction and those that treat co-morbid conditions, are in demand. Consequently, many researchers are currently focused on developing diabetes therapies that can tackle multiple complications that follow the disease, particularly obesity and heart-related illnesses.”

Leading companies featured in the report include Novo Nordisk, Sanofi, Merck (MSD), Eli Lilly
Boehringer Ingelheim, Novartis, AstraZeneca, Takeda and other leading companies currently marketing or developing diabetes drugs.
