Changing lifestyles are leading to a higher prevalence of diabetes. This is expected to drive the demand for diabetes drugs during the forecast period. Long working hours, less physical activity, and unhealthy eating and drinking habits are major causes of diabetes. According to a study conducted in 2018, there was a high prevalence of diabetes in people with sedentary lifestyles. Additionally, people suffering from obesity are up to 80 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, 74% of men and 64% of women in the UK, for instance, are expected to be overweight by 2030. These factors are expected to increase the patient pool of diabetes, thereby likely to drive the diabetes therapies market during the forecast period.
High costs and long payback periods for investment in new diabetes drugs negatively impacted the market during the historic period. The costs for drug approval processes that include multiple phases of clinical trials and screening processes with regulatory bodies such as the US FDA are very high. According to the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development, the cost of bringing a new drug from its conception to shelves was about $2.7 billion in 2017, a significant increase from $320 million in the 1990s. These high costs and uncertainty regarding return on investments for drug development limited the investments by pharmaceutical companies in the development of new diabetic drugs, thus limiting the growth of the market during the historic period.
