In-depth Analysis and Data-driven Insights on the Impact of COVID-19 Included in this Global Blood Monitoring Consumables Market Report

The global blood glucose monitoring consumables market by revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 13% during the period 2020–2026.

The market has witnessed significant growth due to the growing prevalence of diabetes and the increasing awareness of self-management of diabetes. The prevalence of diabetes worldwide increases at an alarming rate due to changing lifestyles, growing alcohol consumption, and increasing smokers. However, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the introduction of advanced test strips and lancets influence the digital diabetes management market’s growth. The increased demand for self-care/homecare devices is also contributing to the usage of BGM consumables. With an increase in the sale of blood glucose meters, test strips, and lancets, the market offers tremendous growth opportunities for global, regional, and local vendors. Therefore, many vendors strategically focus on the development and commercial launches for regular blood glucose monitoring, which increases the demand for consumables.

The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the blood glucose monitoring consumables market during the forecast period:

  • COVID-19 Pandemic Increasing Demand for Test Strips & Lancets
  • Advances in Test Strip & Lancet Technology
  • High Availability of Generic Test Strips

Global Blood Glucose Monitoring Consumables Market Segmentation
The global blood glucose monitoring consumables market research report includes a detailed segmentation by products, end-users, distribution channel, geography. Test strips accounted for over 64% of the global blood glucose monitoring consumables market in 2020. As revenues from test strips are recurring, vendors strategize to maximize sales volume and profit margins by offering innovative products. However, the growing use of self-monitoring blood glucose testing by patients and professionals in several POC testing sites such as emergency care, physician offices, ambulatory settings, and nursing homes increases test strips’ consumption. Hospitals across the world have been using test strips for superfast output and nearly accurate results. These factors have increased the demand for test strips in the market.

In 2020, the end-user segment was segmented into individuals, hospitals and clinics, and others. The individuals segment accounted for the highest share of the market with 75%. The individual segment accounts for the highest share due to the wide acceptance of SMBG monitoring devices and consumables such as test strips, lancets, and lancing devices among consumers. The acceptance of these consumables and machines is confined to developed countries and in developing and underdeveloped countries, which has influenced their revenue growth. SMBG and CGM devices use sensors, lancets, lancing devices, and test strips as consumables to measure the blood glucose. The usage of CMBG is higher in developed countries such as the US and UK, France, Spain, Italy, and Germany due to the increased awareness of these devices and reimbursement options.

Online distribution channels are increasing significantly, although retail channels are maintaining their lead. Online purchasing channels expect to grow at a CAGR of over 12% during the forecast period. However, retail stores continue to be preferred for purchasing consumables and BGM devices in low- and middle-income countries. As the older generation patients prefer retail chains to purchase blood glucose consumables, the X generation prefers online channels for consumables due to high smartphone penetration. With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, most offline pharmacies were closed, which directly boosted consumables’ sales via online channels. Hospital pharmacies, standalone pharmacies, and other retail pharmacies are the primary retail offline mode of distribution. Around 80% of BGM devices & consumables sales occur via retail channels in low- and middle-income countries.
