Diabetes devices play a crucial role in monitoring and managing this condition. These devices provide accurate data, facilitate medication delivery, and offer constant monitoring and feedback. The prevalence of diabetes has been consistently increasing across Latin American countries, augmenting the demand for diabetes devices over the forecast period.

  • For instance, according to the Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice, in Brazil, the prevalence of diabetes in 2019 was 16.8 million cases and is expected to reach 21.5 cases by 2030.

Latin America Diabetes Devices Market Growth Factors

The Rising Incidence of Diabetic Patients has Spurred the Demand for Diabetes Devices

As the prevalence of diabetes is rapidly increasing, there is a growing need for better management to achieve blood glucose control to prevent complications and reduce the burden of the disease. Diabetes is driven by obesity, a stressful lifestyle, unhealthy dietary habits, and aging populations. Diabetes devices play a pivotal role in monitoring blood sugar and insulin levels and managing the condition effectively.

  • For instance, according to the Trust for America's Health, the obesity rate among Latino adults accounted for 45.6% in 2023.

Technological Advancements in Diabetes Devices are Propelling the Market Growth.

The technology is constantly improving in safety, bioanalytical performance, duration of wearing time, bio-compatibility, and other clinical features. Continuous innovation in diabetes device technology has led to the development of devices with integration with digital health platforms. These advancements in diabetes devices enable patients to understand the condition better and make informed decisions to control their blood sugar levels. For instance, in January 2024, Medtronic introduced the MiniMed 780 G system with the Simplera Sync, a disposable CGM, and announced the worldwide approval of the device.

Latin America Diabetes Devices Market Restraining Factors

The High cost of Diabetes Devices is Likely to Limit the Market Growth

According to the World Health Organization, diabetes is the second most common cause of death in Mexico. Diabetes prevalence and incidence rates have been increasing faster in low and middle-income countries across Latin America. The costs for diabetes treatment are relatively high. This is attributed to a lack of insurance coverage for the treatment by policymakers and a limited number of specialists in the region. For instance, according to the estimates provided by the ADA, the total estimated cost associated with diabetes was estimated at USD 412.9 billion in Latin America and the Caribbean. Further, the low focus on the prevention and diagnosis phases of the disease is another prominent factor that will hamper the market growth in the near future.

By Type Insights

The Insulin Delivery Devices Segment Held the Largest Market share in 2023

The insulin delivery devices segment accounted for the largest Latin America Diabetes Devices Market share in 2023. Insulin delivery devices range from simple patches to insulin pumps to automated insulin delivery (AID) systems. It also aids in taking insulin and the wide range of devices available in the market. Additionally, a large number of diabetic patients in the region require insulin to manage their glucose levels.

  • For instance, according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), more than 40 million adults live with diabetes in Latin America.

The BGM devices segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Blood glucose monitoring devices are essential for the effective management of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1D). Moreover, the growing adoption of diabetes devices has spurred significant progress in the technology of blood glucose monitoring devices, with a specific emphasis on the development of minimally invasive & non-invasive methods.

By End-use Insights

The Hospitals Segment Held a Significant Market Revenue share in 2023

The hospitals segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022. The segment’s growth is due to rising diabetes cases and the adoption of advanced diabetes technologies and devices to improve patient care. The rapid increase in the burden of diabetes has led to the improvement of primary healthcare capacity for early diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diabetes-related complications.

The diagnostic centers segment is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. This growth is primarily due to the increasing burden of type 2 diabetes. Further, the increase in demand for specialized healthcare services is anticipated to fuel the segment’s growth prospects.

  • For instance, according to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) estimates, the economic burden of diabetes care will be the highest in Mexico, approximately USD 8,604 million, by 2025.

Country Insights

Brazil Dominated the Latin American Market in 2023

Brazil dominated the market and is also expected to register a substantial growth rate.  The rising occurrence of obesity and overweight cases in Brazil has resulted in more people developing type 2 diabetes (T2D). Poorly managed diabetes has led to conditions such as blindness and kidney failure. The growing need for preventing these health conditions is a prominent factor that is likely to spur the demand for diabetes devices over the forecast period.

Furthermore, according to the report published by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Brazilian Ministry of Health provides free of charge drugs for diabetic patients and related conditions. Therefore, the increase in government initiatives to control and prevent obesity is positively affecting the market growth in the country.
