The global continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) market size was valued at 475 million in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.8% during the forecast period. Glucose monitoring is a method to check the glucose concentration present in the blood. Glucose monitoring is used for diabetes diagnosis and its management. The traditional method for glucose monitoring is to draw blood from finger or skin and applying blood to a chemically active test-strip. traditional glucose meters are a widely used devices in healthcare industry. However, close monitoring of blood sugar level is necessary to check fluctuations in the glucose level. A continuous glucose monitor (CGM) is used to monitor the blood glucose level constantly. A CGM in an advanced medical device that delivers constant data regarding glucose level and provides real-time information on the glucose readings over the period of time.
The CGM device displays information automatically, which is received at interval of every five minutes allowing the finger-stick less often. Such a device is used with or without insulin pump. A traditional blood glucose meter provides a single glucose reading. However, unlike the blood glucose monitoring (BGM), the CGM systems offers dynamic and real-time glucose information approximately up to 288 readings in 24 hours. A person is able to gain significant information regarding glucose levels and direction of change, providing additional insight into diabetes management.
