High Obesity Levels and Strong Genetic Vulnerability Driving India’s Diabetes Population

  1. 1. High Obesity Levels and Strong Genetic Vulnerability Driving India’s Diabetes Population With around 78 Million Indians expected to suffer from diabetes by 2020, the market for oral antidiabetic drugs, insulin and diagnostics is expected to witness strong growth. Increasing obesity levels, high genetic vulnerability and increasing urbanization rates are expected to be the catalysts in driving the prevalence of diabetes in India. Research firm IMARC Group expects India’s diabetes population to increase at a CAGR of 3% during 2013-2020, according to its latest report titled “Indian Diabetes Market Report: Epidemiology, Patients, Prevalence, Oral Anti-diabetics, Insulin and Diagnostics”. The report which has done a comprehensive analysis on the market for diabetic drugs and diagnostics,expects 78 Million Indians to suffer from diabetes by 2020, creating a huge demand for oral antidiabetic drugs, insulin and diagnostics. According to Sidhartha Kapoor, an analyst at IMARC Group, “the Indian population that had faced under nutrition for a long time is now exposed to high fat diets and sedentary lifestyles. As a result of increasing disposable incomes and flourishing fast food chains, India had an estimated 165 Million overweight and 30 Million obese population in 2013. These levels are expected to increase significantly in the coming years”. Apart from the increasing obesity levels, Kapoor also pointed out that a high genetic vulnerability is also driving the prevalence of diabetes in the country. According to Kapoor- “As a result of a higher percentage of body fat to muscle, Indians are more vulnerable to type-2 diabetes compared to other population groups. This fat increases the sugar levels as it gets deposited around the abdomen and interferes with insulin. As a result, Indians get diabetes at a much younger age compared to other population groups”. IMARC’s new report “Indian Diabetes Market Report: Epidemiology, Patients, Prevalence, Oral Anti-diabetics, Insulin and Diagnostics” provides an analytical and statistical insight into the Indian diabetes market. The report provides both current and future trends in the prevalence, demographical breakup, diagnosis and treatment of diabetes in India. The report has segmented the Indian diabetes market into three segments - Oral Antidiabetics, Insulin and Diabetes Diagnostics. For each of the aforementioned categories, the report provides historical and future market sales, performance of key classes and the performance of top players.
