Read the full report:

The blood glucose test strips industry includes establishments involved in manufacturing test strips used for blood sugar level measurement.Blood glucose test strips are thin paper or plastic strips which help to monitor blood glucose level and control diabetes symptoms.

Test strips are generally used in medical devices called blood glucose meters to test blood glucose levels.

Executive Summary
Blood glucose test strips are thin paper or plastic strips that are used to monitor blood glucose levels to help control diabetes. The segments in the blood glucose test strips market are based on the type of the reactive enzyme used in the strips—glucose oxidase and glucose dehydrogenase, and by the type of the electrode used— thick film, thin film, and optical. Glucose dehydrogenase-based test strips are the most accurate and specific of the strips and account for two-thirds of all sales. Thick film electrodes are used most followed by thin film and optical based test strips. Major trends shaping the blood glucose test strips market include new FDA guidelines on the accuracy of blood glucose detection, the development of generic blood glucose test strips, low cost alternative silk strips, and innovative blood glucose test methods.

The global blood glucose test strips market was worth $10.6 billion in 2017. The market size is influenced by the prevalence of diabetes, awareness of self-monitoring of blood glucose, and reimbursement for test strips in some countries. This market grew from $9.4 billion in 2013 to $10.64 billion in 2017 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.15% and is forecast to grow to $12.93 billion at a CAGR of 5% by 2021.

Major drivers of the blood glucose test strip industry in the historic period included increased diabetes cases, increased disposable income, and technological advances, while major restraints on the market included lack of diabetes awareness, decreased reimbursement prices, and development of alternative technologies for blood glucose monitoring.

Major drivers of the blood glucose test strip market in the forecast period include increasing awareness, government initiatives, rapid industrialization and urbanization and changing life styles. The increasing trend in the prevalence of diabetes in both developed and developing countries will help the diabetes care market to grow in turn driving for the blood glucose test strips market. Major restraints on the market include alternative testing methods, and the decreasing price of the product faced with these substitutes.

North America was the largest market for blood glucose test strips in 2017, worth 47.1% of the market, at $5.01 billion. This was followed by Western Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and finally Africa. The USA was the largest country in this market followed by Germany and then Brazil. India was the fastest growing market in the historic period and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.49% between 2017 and2021.

The top four companies in this industry, Roche, Johnson & Johnson, Ascensia (Panasonic Health Care), and Abbott account for 50% of the total. Due to decreasing prices for blood glucose test strips across the world and increasing competition from local players, these companies' market shares are declining.
