SCOPE OF THE STUDY
The scope of this study encompasses insulin drugs and delivery in pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets with its classification and its usage in diabetes types. BCC analyzes each market and its applications, as well as its regulatory environment, technology and market share. The markets, such as type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes, are analyzed for the years 2011 and 2012. The markets are projected through the end of 2013 and for a five-year period until 2018.
The market is also segmented by insulin syringes and vials, insulin pens and insulin pumps. Technological issues include the latest trends and developments. The study also includes the patent identifications for insulin as a drug, along with its deliveries.
The emerging markets for insulin drug and delivery include India, China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Canada, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in the preparation of this study. BCC Research conducted a comprehensive literature search, which included technical newsletters and journals, as well as many other sources. Data were collected through interviews and correspondence with manufacturers of enzyme inhibitors technical experts. Projections were based on estimates such as the current number of end users, potential end users, mergers and acquisitions, and market trends.
Many companies were surveyed to obtain data for this study. including manufacturers of insulin drugs and delivery technologies and their users in hospitals and medical centers. Data were gathered from various industry sources. BCC Research spoke with officials within the industry and also consulted newsletters; company literature; product literature; and a host of technical articles, journals, indexes and abstracts. Exhaustive investigations of databases by key terminology were completed. In addition, data were compiled from current financial, trade and government sources.
