Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/01/2017 -- Market Synopsis of Global Blood Glucose Test Strip Market

Market scenario

Blood glucose test strip is a small disposable plastic strip and is an important component of blood glucose meters that monitors and controls diabetes. These strips are impregnated with glucose oxidase, which reacts with glucose present in the blood and then indicate the glucose level in the blood.

The convenience offered by the self-blood glucose testing over the traditional methods is one of the major drivers of the blood glucose test strip market. The self-testing allows the diabetic and the pre-diabetic people to keep a track of their blood glucose level regularly without visiting a clinic or diagnostic laboratory. A diabetic patient is expected to test his sugar at least 2-3 times a day, self-testing allows the patient to perform his test regularly at his home. Rising diabetic population is another major driver of the market. Diabetes is one of the major concerns for the government bodies across the globe. The number of diabetic population across the world is rising continuously. According to the International Diabetic Federation, about 415 million people had diabetes across the globe in 2015, and this number is poised to reach 642 million by 2040.

The global big data in the blood glucose test strips market is expected to reach US$ 18.5 billion by 2020, and the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of ~ 6.2 % during the forecast period 2015-2020.

Financial support by the governments is an important economic driver of the market due to its effects on the demand for blood glucose strips. For example, Australian Government is taking various initiatives to increase the usage of blood glucose monitors and test strips. The government has implemented Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS). According to this scheme, the blood glucose test strips are provided to the Australian at a government-subsidised prices. Moreover, the foreign visitors from the countries such as the U.K., Ireland, New Zealand, Malta, Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands, Finland, Norway, Belgium and Slovenia are also covered under this scheme. The other drivers for blood glucose test strips market are technological advancements such as accuracy of the test, awareness about diabetes, etc. Rising disposable income of emerging economies is another economic driver of the market. For example, annual disposable income of middle class households in India was $1,366.2 billion in 2010, which reached $1,587.6 billion in 2013.

The market restraints are inadequate reimbursement for test strips etc. For example, in March 2013, Medicare announced reimbursement cuts for diabetes testing supplies (DTS) up to 72%. According to new reimbursement policies, diabetic beneficiaries, who receive their glucose-testing supplies delivered to their homes will need to obtain them from 1 of 18 contract suppliers chosen by Medicare via a competitive bidding process. This new plan will help the government to reduce healthcare expenditure. However, it can drastically reduce the number of vendors from which diabetic patients can obtain glucose-testing supplies. Furthermore, this amendment can also lead to disruption in the supplies of blood glucose monitoring accessories, which could result into decline in self-monitoring of glucose and subsequent adverse outcomes.
