A high growth and resilient marketThe diabetes care market has historically exhibited strong growth, leading global sales volumes to have increased from US$8.6 billion in 2005 to US$12.4 billion in 2011. This increase is generally being driven by the increasing prevalence of diabetes, the introduction of higher-priced newer technologies such as continuous glucosemonitoring, changing trends in the management of diabetes, and the development of healthcare systems of emerging markets in recent years.

Having experienced strong annual growth in the period before 2009, the market slowed considerably, rising by just 1% in that year and by 2% in 2010. Although most product areas continued to generate strong sales volumes, this lower growth was due to weakness in the self monitoring blood glucose market as a result of lower sales volumes and pricing pressure in the US due to the economic slowdown.

Since 2010, the diabetes care market has once again picked up, rising by 6% in 2011. This improvement has been due to renewed growth for self monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) products, helped by new product launches in the US but, mainly due to strong demand in emerging markets. The growth rates in the insulin delivery segmentslowed slightly during the year due to pricing pressure for pen needles and a slight slowdown in insulin pump sales as a result of the negative economic environment.
