Blood Glucose Test Strip Market Analysis

The Blood Glucose Test Strip Market is projected to reach USD 37.51 Billion by 2032 at 7.2% CAGR during the forecast period 2023-2032. Blood glucose test strip is a small disposable plastic strip and is an important component of blood glucose meters that monitors and controls diabetes. These strips are impregnated with glucose oxidase, which reacts with glucose present in the blood and then indicate the glucose level in the blood.


The convenience offered by the self-blood glucose testing over the traditional methods is one of the major drivers of the blood glucose test strip market. The self-testing allows the diabetic and the pre-diabetic people to keep a track of their blood glucose level regularly without visiting a clinic or diagnostic laboratory. A diabetic patient is expected to test his sugar at least 2-3 times a day, self-testing allows the patient to perform his test regularly at his home. Rising diabetic population is another major driver of the blood glucose test strip market. Diabetes is one of the major concerns for the government bodies across the globe. The number of diabetic population across the world is rising continuously. According to the International Diabetic Federation, about 415 million people had diabetes across the globe in 2015, and this number is poised to reach 642 million by 2040. Financial support by the governments is an important economic driver of the market due to its effects on the demand for blood glucose strips. For example, Australian Government is taking various initiatives to increase the usage of blood glucose monitors and test strips. The government has implemented Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS). According to this scheme, the blood glucose test strips are provided to the Australian at a government-subsidised prices. Moreover, the foreign visitors from the countries such as the U.K., Ireland, New Zealand, Malta, Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands, Finland, Norway, Belgium and Slovenia are also covered under this scheme. The other drivers for blood glucose test strips market are technological advancements such as accuracy of the test, awareness about diabetes, etc. Rising disposable income of emerging economies is another economic driver of the market. For example, annual disposable income of middle class households in India was $1,366.2 billion in 2010, which reached $1,587.6 billion in 2013.


The blood glucose test strip market restraints are inadequate reimbursement for test strips etc. For example, in March 2013, Medicare announced reimbursement cuts for diabetes testing supplies (DTS) up to 72%. According to new reimbursement policies, diabetic beneficiaries, who receive their glucose-testing supplies delivered to their homes will need to obtain them from 1 of 18 contract suppliers chosen by Medicare via a competitive bidding process. This new plan will help the government to reduce healthcare expenditure. However, it can drastically reduce the number of vendors from which diabetic patients can obtain glucose-testing supplies. Furthermore, this amendment can also lead to disruption in the supplies of blood glucose monitoring accessories, which could result into decline in self-monitoring of glucose and subsequent adverse outcomes.


Self-blood glucose testing's superior convenience to traditional methods is one of the key factors driving the blood glucose test strip market. Self-testing enables diabetics and pre-diabetics to regularly monitor their blood glucose levels without visiting a clinic or diagnostic laboratory. Increasing diabetic population is another significant market driver for blood glucose test strips.


Diabetes is one of the primary concerns of governments around the world. The number of diabetic populations in the globe continues to rise. Other market drivers for blood glucose test strips include technological advancements such as test accuracy, diabetes awareness, etc. Increasing disposable income in emerging economies is another market driver.


Diabetes patients are increasingly engaging in self-monitoring of their blood glucose levels. This trend is fueled by the desire for improved disease management, increased awareness of the benefits of regular monitoring, and the availability of blood glucose test packets and meters that are simple to use.


Governments, healthcare organizations, and insurers are emphasizing disease management and preventive care to lessen the impact of diabetes and its complications. This concentration enables proactive monitoring and routine testing, including the use of blood glucose test strips.


February 2023: Afon has again teased its non-invasive glucose monitor in February 2023, this time with a rendered image of the sensor alongside adapted wearables and connected devices. In order to obtain blood samples for measurement, millions of diabetics must prick their digits with lancets up to ten times per day, resulting in tissue scarring and discomfort. The Afon Blood Glucose Sensor promises to be a painless and non-invasive alternative method. The production of the first widely approved fully non-invasive continuous glucose monitor (CGM) appears to be highly competitive, but it is crucial for any company involved in this type of development to ensure that their product is both safe and accurate, as it could provide potentially life-saving data to millions of users in the future.


April 2023: Researchers at the University of Washington and UW Medicine may have discovered a method for detecting prediabetes earlier. The team created a new system that utilizes the capacitive touch-sensing capabilities of any smartphone to measure blood-glucose levels without requiring a separate reader. Typical screening procedures involve a visit to a healthcare facility for laboratory testing and/or the use of a portable glucometer for at-home monitoring. Accessibility and expense are obstacles to widespread screening. The study results indicate that GlucoScreen's accuracy is comparable to that of conventional glucometer testing. The team discovered that the system was accurate at the critical threshold between a normal blood-glucose level, at or below 99 mg/dL, and prediabetes, which is defined as a blood glucose between 100 and 125 mg/dL.
