Oral Anti Diabetes Drugs Market Dynamics
The global oral anti diabetes drugs market growth is driven by the growing geriatric population, rising government initiatives, and continuous research and development conducted by pharmaceutical manufacturers.
The rising prevalence of diabetes worldwide is likely to create a vast demand
The significant growth in the market can be attributed to factors such as the rising prevalence of diabetes and the increasing number of programs initiated by various health organizations related to health awareness. In 2019, it was estimated that out of 511 million people suffering from diabetes, 31.3% were undiagnosed.

Currently, about 10% of all diabetes cases are Type-1 and the remaining are of Type-2. Thus, the rise in the prevalence of type-2 diabetes worldwide is likely to create a vast demand for diabetes drugs..
Sedentary lifestyles & rise in cases of diabetes to leverage market revenue
Inactive lifestyle, obesity, and higher stress are anticipated to boost the demand for oral anti-diabetic drugs over the forecast period. Apart from this, technological breakthroughs and medical compensation facilities are likely to impel the growth of oral anti-diabetic drug market in the years ahead. Nevertheless, the increase in the R&D activities and tremendous potential for oral anti-diabetic drug market to grow will chart a profitable roadmap for the business over the forecast period, thereby normalizing the negative impact of hindrances on the oral anti-diabetic drug market
High cost of oral anti diabetes drugs and persence of alternate solution is hinder the market growth
However, the rise in the drug costs, is projected to restrict the expansion of oral anti-diabetic drug market in the forecast period. Also, preferred use of insulin over oral anti diabetes drugs and the complications associated with the drugs has been hindering the market growth.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Covid-19 pushes up sales of oral anti diabetes drugs. Patients given these drugs had a mortality rate of 18 percent as compared with 37 percent in matched patients receiving only insulin according to the study involved seven Italian hospitals during the first surge of COVID cases last spring. The pandemic is seems to impacting the operation of pharmaceutical companies with those dealing in oral anti diabetes drugs. Diabetics severely had turned people into buying more of medicines for these ailments. In the month of June, demand for Anti-Diabetic segment grew at 12.7 per cent yoy due to continued buying during the period of the lockdown. Thus, the pandemic has incresed the sale and ultimately growth of the oral anti diabetes drugs market in the forecast period.
Oral Anti Diabetes Drugs Market Segment Analysis
DPP-4 Inhibitors segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2020-2027)
The Dipeptidyl Peptidase - 4 (DPP-4) Inhibitors segment has the largest market share in the forecast period. DPP-4 inhibitor drugs are gaining momentum in the market because the products do not seem to have any effect on primary adverse cardiovascular outcomes and risk for heart failure. Besides, they can be used both as a combination therapy with insulin, sulphonylureas, and dipeptidyl peptidase-4 drugs and as a monotherapy, thus, making it a widely used class of drugs. During the forecast period, the DPP-4 inhibitors segment is expected to witness constant growth rate, due to the introduction of new drugs that have improved efficacy, like glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) and sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors. The segment is still expected to maintain the largest market share among all oral anti-diabetes drugs market segments.
The sulfonylureas segment has the second largest market share in the forecast period. These are sometimes called "oral hypoglycemic agents," work very differently than metformin. They signal the pancreas to release insulin and they also help the body's cells use insulin better. Sulfonylureas may be old, but they're effective. They can lower A1C levels (a measure of blood sugar control over the previous 2-3 months) by 1% to 2%. The affordability and higher glucose-lowering efficacy are possible advantages that explain why this drug class is frequently used in practice. However, concerns have been raised for why sulfonylureas should not be used as first-line therapy, and should be avoided in use with metformin, due to concerns regarding severe cardiovascular and hypoglycemic risk.
Sulfonylureas are classified into two generations, first-generation and second-generation. Currently used are the second-generation sulfonylureas (Glyburide, Glipizide, Glimepiride, Glicazide), while the first-generation sulfonylureas are no longer used (Tolbutamide, Chlorpropamide, Tolazamide) due to severe hypoglycemia episodes. This drug class is typically used for patients with type 2 diabetes where cost is a major issue, patients who are not overweight, and for whom metformin is contraindicated, not well tolerated, or has failed to meet glycemic target goals. The most common adverse effects of sulfonylureas are hypoglycemia, weight gain, and risk for cardiovascular events. Clinicians initially prescribe lower doses of sulfonylureas to prevent the risks of hypoglycemia. Unfortunately, in some patients taking sulfonylureas, the adverse effects may outweigh the benefits.
