Sales Analysis of Glucose Analysis Tubes from 2016 to 2020 Vs Market Outlook for 2021 to 2031

The global market for glucose analysis tubes expanded at 4.2% CAGR over the past 5 years.

Global prevalence of diabetes is increasing across the world, which is leading to increase demand for glucose analysis tubes. This rise in diabetes is seen due to drastic changes in the lifestyle of people such as disturbed sleep cycles and unhealthy food eating habits.

Also, awareness regarding regular blood glucose monitoring is rising. People have started giving importance to their physical health. Manufacturers are also focusing on developing and producing innovative devices that help in the management and monitoring of glucose levels in the blood.

According to the PubMed 2018 publication, there were 451 million (age 18-99 years) people with diabetes in 2017 worldwide, which it is expected to increase to 693 million by 2045.

Sodium fluoride and fluoride oxalate have major market shares (41.7% and 36.1%, respectively) of the revenue generated in 2020. This is because glucose is unstable in whole blood. Therefore, tubes containing fluoride are used to reduce glycolysis, especially when very accurate glucose results are required.

The market is expected to expand at a considerable growth rate over the next ten years at a CAGR of around 5.7%.

What’s Stunting Demand for Glucose Analysis Tubes?

Blood collection done using a glucose analysis tube requires trained professionals. Lack of trained professionals can lead to various problems in the procedure, such as incorrect identification, wrong tube, and insufficient sample quantity. 

Additionally, the invasive nature of the procedure is an issue. Nowadays, people are more attracted toward minimally or non-invasive products for glucose analysis such as testing strips. These strips are minimally invasive and less painful. Thus, the presence of these alternatives has the potential to restraint the market for glucose analysis tubes over the coming years.
