Global human insulin market was valued at USD26.91 billion in 2019 is expected to grow at a steady CAGR of 8.01% during the forecast period. Growing geriatric population, increasing diabetic patients, rising prevalence of obesity, and increasing demand for human insulin analogs are contributing to the surging demand for human insulin market, globally. Nowadays, diabetes is not only restricted to geriatric population, but it is also common among youth. Moreover, the technological advancements have eradicated human physical activities leading to obesity and diabetes disorders, which is directly influencing the growth of the market. Cost-effectiveness, reimbursement prices and strict regulatory requirements for approval of insulin can be considered major restraining factors for the Global Human Insulin Market.

The global human insulin market is segmented on the basis of indication, brand, route of administration, type, onset type, products, and region. Based on indication, market can be bifurcated into type-I diabetes and type-II diabetes. Type-I diabetes is likely to hold the largest market share of 84.60% until 2025 as human insulin is the most important treatment method for the people suffering from type-I diabetes.
