The Asia Pacific region holds considerable potential for the expansion of self monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) devices markets. Increasing urbanization in this region has been accompanied by the rising incidence of diabetes. As efforts to promote effective management of diabetes continue and patients are encouraged to comply with management regimes, markets for SMBG devices appear promising.

Frost & Sullivan (medicaldevices.frost.com) finds that the Self Monitoring Blood Glucose Meters and Strips Market: China, India, Thailand, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, South Korea, Taiwan earned revenues of up to $101 million in 2006.

“As the prevalence of diabetes rises in several countries, healthcare providers are actively encouraging regular monitoring of the disease in order to manage it effectively, thereby spurring the growth of SMBG markets,” notes Frost & Sullivan Consultant Marena Rajeevan. “Moreover, as patients increasingly turn to self monitoring, retail channels in several countries will grow in importance as a means of reaching SMBG devices to diabetic patients.”

Heightened emphasis on the need to effectively manage diabetes is being accompanied by greater patient awareness on the need for regular monitoring. Trends indicate that patients are increasingly turning to self monitoring for the convenience it offers and for the enhanced quality of life that is the outcome of better disease management. Such end-user benefits are poised to drive demand levels and promote market expansion.

Retail channels play a key role in the access that patients have to SMBG devices. As hospitals across the world attempt to manage patient loads and resources more effectively, the retail segment will play a progressively more important role in reaching SMBG devices to diabetic patients.

In several countries, however, low levels of patient awareness about the need to monitor blood glucose levels regularly will hamper the market for SMBG devices.

“SMBG markets in developing economies such as Indonesia are restrained by relatively low awareness and acceptance of self monitoring among populations with diabetes,” comments Rajeevan. “This is compounded by relatively low GDP per capita, which poses a challenge for the promotion and adoption of self monitoring devices for the management of diabetes.”

To expand the market for SMBG devices, manufacturers and healthcare providers will need to make sustained efforts to promote awareness of diabetes and the need for its regular monitoring.
