The market study also includes insights on segmentation by product type (conventional BGM devices and continuous BGM devices), by usage type (personal BGM devices and professional BGM devices), by distribution channel (retail stores and online), by end-user type (individuals, hospitals & clinics, and others), and by geography (North America, APAC, Europe, Latin America, and MEA).


The growing need to reduce both long-term micro and macrovascular complications such as CVDs, kidney diseases, and eye diseases and short-term complications, such as diabetic ketoacidosis and severe hypoglycemia is fueling the demand in the global blood glucose monitoring devices market. The increasing focus on effective diabetes management is fueling the growth of the worldwide market. Self-monitoring of blood glucose levels regularly allows people with diabetes to evaluate their disease condition and helps them to follow the prescribed treatment regimen. The use of BGM devices will help to prevent hypoglycemia, managing nutrition therapy and physical activity, and adjusting medications in the global market. All the risks and associated complications of diabetes encourages diabetic patients to maintain blood glucose levels within the normal range and must measure their blood glucose levels regularly, thereby, creating lucrative opportunities for the leading vendors. The rising prevalence of diabetes, availability of a wide array of glucometers, and increasing awareness about diabetes management among patients is fueling the growth. The adoption of these devices is higher in developed economies, where payers are offering reimbursement options for BGM. The growing prevalence of diabetes and increasing awareness about the self-management of diabetes will contribute to the revenues in the worldwide market.

The global blood glucose monitoring devices market is expected to reach revenues of more than $25 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of over 9% during 2018-2024.


The increasing availability of mobile apps and data integration of platforms will drive innovations in the global blood glucose monitoring devices market. The growing adoption of smartphones, wearable medical devices, and the availability of various mHealth  & telehealth apps for blood glucose tracking and diabetes management is driving the growth of the global market. The use of mobile apps is providing personalized, data-driven, and real-time support for people with diabetes are helping them to manage it effectively. The leading vendors are investing significant capital on R&D activities and technological platforms to develop compatible diabetes-related apps and data integration platforms for their BGM devices in the global market.
