Global Diabetes Injection Pens Market Trends, Growth Rate, Demand, Opportunities &
Forecast To 2026
Diabetes injection pens are now more commonly used to administer oral diabetes medications to
people who have difficulty swallowing. These pens allow the diabetics to inject themselves with a
dose of their chosen oral diabetes medication. Insulin pumps and vial style pumps are often used for
administering insulin shots and there are also single-dose vials that can be stored in a personal bag
or small box and taken at a convenient time.
There are many different types of diabetes injection pens available from medical supply companies
offering an array of options to the consumer. These are made of rubber latex or similar flexible
material that is durable and resistant to infection. The needles are usually made of sterile stainless
steel but rubber inserts are available for use with some units. Depending on what brand and type of
diabetes medicine are being ordered, the pen will be embossed with the letter of the patient's first
name, the word "diabetic" or another symbol indicating this fact and their personal information.
The main factor driving the growth of the diabetes injection pens market is the rapid increase of
diabetes across the globe. For instance, according to a 2020 report by CDC approximately 34.2
million people were suffering from diabetes. The new cases of diabetes are high among non-
Hispanic blacks than non-Hispanic whites and non-Hispanic Asians. Other factors such as injuries
caused due to needle sticks and bacterial infections caused by regular usages of syringes are
estimated to propel the market growth of the insulin injection pens market.
However, the abundance of insulin patches, and other safer substitute for insulin injection pens are
the main restraining factors hindering the growth of the market.
