Diabetes Injection Pens Market, by Product Type (Insulin Pens and Pen Needles), by Usage (Disposable and Reusable), by Distribution Channel (Hospitals Pharmacies, Retail Pharmacies, Online Medical Stores, and Diabetes Clinics), and by Geography - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018-2026

Diabetes insulin pens are advanced forms of prefilled insulin syringes and pen needles that are used to inject insulin in the body of patients suffering from type-1 diabetes. These pens usually consist of an insulin cartridge that acts as an insulin reservoir and a dial that is used to measure the exact volume of insulin that is intended to be delivered to the patient. These cartridges and pens are available in different shapes and sizes and are also available in disposable and non-disposable types. Most of the diabetes pens are incorporated with insulin pen needles that are replaceable, thin, and extremely short to reduce the pain caused during injection. Several universal pen needles are also present in the market that fits to almost all the brands of insulin pens. These pens are handy, easy to carry around, and can be used in home settings to provide accuracy in dose delivery. This in turn, is increasing the demand for diabetes insulin pens.
