Insulin, a hormone produced by the β cells of Langerhans in the pancreas, regulates metabolism by allowing glucose uptake in our body from carbohydrates and hence helps in maintaining the blood glucose level. During diabetes treatment, insulin injections are provided to allow the body to process sugar and avoid complications from hyperglycemia. Growth of the global insulin market is propelled by several factors like increasing global prevalence of diabetes; rise in decrepit and obese populations and most importantly by propagation of diabetes management awareness and government impetus. According to 2017 census, Chengamanad, having a total population of 29,576 revealed, out of 14,475 males and 15,101 females, 25,132 are literates who are aware about Diabetes, its types and the necessity of insulin uptake for its treatment. The global insulin therapeutics market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.0% during forecast period, 2018 to 2023. North America dominates the market, due to its growing diabetic and obesity instances and even India is among the top five market leaders for insulin today. The increasing trend of awareness about diabetes and insulin is majorly due to the knowledge transfer about the disease through mass media such as television and newspapers that has whole heartedly contributed to public awareness. Family members and friends followed by doctors also play a very important role in distributing information about the disease especially to the people of the backward community. Although increasing literacy rate and distribution of knowledge is contributing to better public awareness; emphasis still needs to be given on periodic screening for diabetes and intake of insulin dosages correctly by patients if at all necessary. This report focusses on the contribution of knowledge transfer through different sources towards the increasing awareness of diabetes leading to the dynamic increase in Global insulin market.
