Global Type 2 Diabetes Market Forecast and Industry Analysis to 2026

“The Latest Research Report PharmaPoint: Type 2 Diabetes – Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2026 provides information on pricing, market analysis, shares, forecast, and company profiles for key industry participants. –”

While the global T2D market is crowded with inexpensive generics and marked by a pipeline filled with me-too drugs, GlobalData expects this market to undergo substantial growth between 2016 and 2026, doubling over the forecast period. The main driver of this enormous expansion will be the dramatic increase in disease prevalence, which is attributable to increased life expectancy and an increasingly sedentary and stressful lifestyle. The second largest driver will be physicians efforts to delay disease progression and reduce the costly burden of diabetic complications through the use of combination therapies and novel branded drugs.

Despite the large number of marketed therapies, the T2D market is still experiencing large unmet needs and therefore has a significant growth opportunity for new patent-protected products. Metformin (dimethylbiguanide) will remain the first-line therapy overall for T2D due to physicians familiarity with it and the availability of long-term data, but the usage of sulfonylureas (SUs), another front-line therapy, continues to be replaced by novel therapies with improved side-effect profiles. The battle for second- or third-line therapy will involve DPP-4Is, GLP-1RAs, SGLT-Is, and other upcoming novel therapies. Of all the currently marketed classes, GLP-1RAs and SGLT-Is will experience the fastest growth due to their beneficial CV effects, weight-loss effects, and increasing ease of use.
