Paper Highlights:

  • 2006 global diabetes market worth around US$22 billion.
  • This attracted attention of specialty pharma and big pharma players such as Bayer, Daiichi-Sankyo, GlaxoSmithKline, Eli-Lilly, Merck & Co., Novartis, Novo Nordisk, Pfizer, Sanofi-aventis and Takeda.
  • Challenges remain to ensure the efficient delivery of insulin by invasive and non-invasive delivery methods to provide flexible, reproducible and cost-effective methods of managing diabetes.
  • Analysis of historic (2000-2005) market trends of the anti-diabetic pharmaceutical sales and advanced drug delivery sales.
  • Forecasts for near-term (2006-2012) and the future (2020) market growth based on the technology platforms evaluated in the report.
  • Plus, sales forecasts for approved and pipeline diabetes products and medical devices.
  • Specialists are applying a plethora of platforms to deliver insulin, including jet injectors, pulmonary, transdermal, buccal & nasal delivery systems.
  • Many new classes of drugs will reach the market over the next 6 years, driving future market growth. Their success is analyzed in detail and case studies provided to highlight the progress of each technology.
  • Medical devices continue to evolve with the aim todevelop an “artificial pancreas”, one which is capable of delivering & monitoring insulin blood levels on a minute by minute basis. A number of devices are evaluated in this report.
  • As the diabetes market evolves new approaches to treatment of diabetes are emerging utilizing islet cell transplantation plus cell- and gene-based therapies. Several Biotherapeutics companies are working towards this goal including: AVI BioPharma, enGENE & TransitionTherapeutics. A number of delivery options are currently being evaluated to optimize the clinical utility of these regenerative therapies and are analyzed in detail in the report.
