Continuous glucose monitoring, better known as CGMS, refers to the real-time monitoring of glucose levels at regular intervals with the help of portable glucose monitoring systems. The glucose level in the human body is also determined by blood glucose meters but they measure the glucose level in the blood. With the help of wireless technology, portable blood glucose monitoring devices transmit glucose readings collected from the interstitial fluid between skin cells.
The report points out that the rise in the diabetic population worldwide has majorly boosted the demand for continuous glucose monitoring devices. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), around 382 mn people were diagnosed with diabetes across the globe in 2013. By 2035, the total number of diabetics over the world is expected to reach a staggering 592 mn.
Type I diabetes is the most common form of diabetes among adults. In the U.K., about 10% of the total diabetic population suffers from type I diabetes. Continuous glucose monitoring systems have been identified as the most effective tools for management of type I diabetes, where patients are insulin-dependent. However, unfavorable reimbursement policies might restrict the growth of the global continuous glucose monitoring market during the forecast horizon.
