The global insulin glargine market was valued at US$ 6,153.5 Mn in 2021 and is forecast to reach a value of US$ 6,257.7 Mn by 2028 at a CAGR of 0.2% between 2022 and 2028. The global insulin glargine market is experiencing strong growth due to the rise in prevalence of diabetes and growing geriatric population across the globe. Furthermore, increase in demand for insulin glargine and increasing awareness among people is expected to boost the growth of the market. However, high cost of insulin glargine and introduction of or availability of insulin biosimilars are major factors expected to hamper growth of the insulin glargine market.

Global Insulin Glargine Market: Regional Insights

Based on geography, the global insulin glargine market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

Among regions, North America is expected to gain highest share in the market over the forecast period owing to the increasing prevalence of diabetes in this region, especially in the United States. Insulin glargine is a long-acting insulin used in the management of type I and type II diabetes. For instance, according to the American Diabetes Association, in 2019, around 37.3 million people in the U.S., or 11.3% of the US population, had diabetes. More than 1.9 million Americans have type 1 diabetes, including about 244,000 children and adolescents.

Asia Pacific is also expected to witness robust growth in the global insulin glargine market due to the rising cases of diabetes in this region. For instance, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in 2019, more than 77 million people in India had diabetes, and this number is expected to reach around 134 million by 2045. Moreover, more than 57% of these individuals remain undiagnosed. This in turn is expected to increase demand for insulin glargine.

Global Insulin Glargine Market Drivers:

Increasing incidence of diabetes around the world is expected to augment growth of the global insulin glargine market over the forecast period. Like other types of insulin, insulin glargine (a long-acting medical insulin) is used to keep the blood sugar level close to normal. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), 2021 report, around 537 million adults (20-79 years) are living with diabetes, and the total number of people living with diabetes is projected to rise to 643 million by 2030 and 783 million by 2045.

Increasing use of insulin glargine across the globe is expected to boost the growth of the global insulin glargine market during the forecast period. Insulin glargine is a self-injectable solution used to control high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) in individuals with type 1 and 2 diabetes, and therefore, the use of insulin glargine has increased worldwide. In November 2021, Viatris Inc. and Biocon Biologics Ltd. announced the U.S. launch of SEMGLEE (insulin glargine-yfgn) injection, and Insulin Glargine (insulin glargine-yfgn) injection to help control high blood sugar in adult and pediatric patients with type 1 diabetes and adults with type 2 diabetes.

Global Insulin Glargine Market Opportunities:

Increase in awareness among people about diabetes management is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global insulin glargine market. For instance, November is National Diabetes Month, a time when communities across the country (US) team up to bring attention to diabetes. The focus is on prediabetes and preventing diabetes. Diabetes Month is created by National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) to raise awareness among people about diabetes.

Increase in research and development or increase in focus on the development of safe/effective insulin is expected to provide significant growth opportunities for players in the insulin glargine market. For instance, in February 2019, an MIT-led research team developed a drug capsule about the size of a blueberry, which can be used to administer oral doses of insulin, potentially replacing insulin injections as a delivery mechanism.

Global Insulin Glargine Market Trends:

Frequent approvals and launches of novel products by market players is expected to propel the growth of the global insulin glargine market. For instance, in July 2021, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first interchangeable biosimilar insulin product, Semglee (insulin glargine-yfgn), indicated to improve glycemic control in adults and pediatric patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus and in adults with Type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Introduction of novel products by market players is expected to aid in the growth of the global insulin glargine market. For instance, in August 2020, Biocon Biologics India Ltd and Mylan N.V. announced the launch of their insulin glargine injection under the brand Semglee in the United States in vial and pre-filled pen presentations.

Global Insulin Glargine Market Restraints:

High cost of insulin glargine is expected to hamper the growth of the global insulin glargine market. For instance, Lantus (insulin glargine injection) is the prime example of an expensive insulin, averaging around US$ 274 per month. The cost for Lantus subcutaneous solution (100 units/mL) is around US$ 308 for a supply of 10 milliliters. However, the monthly cost of the insulin depends on the dosage prescribed.

Introduction of or availability of insulin biosimilars is expected to hinder growth of the insulin glargine market. For instance, biosimilar insulin is a biological copy of an original insulin and there is increasing interest in developing and using them. Furthermore, biosimilar insulins are cheaper as compared to original products.
