Insulin is vital for people suffering from type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. There are different ways to inject insulin into the body, such as vials and syringes, insulin pens, and insulin pumps, this is called insulin delivery. The two main ways to take insulin are bolus and basal. Basal insulin is longer-acting and helps keep glucose levels steady, while bolus insulin is the quick-acting delivery that people often take before mealtimes. People with type 1 and type 2 diabetes take insulin to help control their blood sugar levels. The goal of taking insulin is to keep blood sugar level in a normal range as much as possible. Though subcutaneous insulin delivery is the standard route of insulin administration, it is associated with noncompliance, lipodystrophy, needle phobia, injection pain, and peripheral hyperinsulinemia.
The Canada insulin delivery devices market was valued at US$ 1,142.4 Mn in 2021 and is forecast to reach a value of US$ 1,406.6 Mn by 2028 at a CAGR of 3.0% between 2022 and 2028.
