It also features a detailed forecast of the likely evolution of the market over the next decade.

Kashish Goel, the principal analyst, said, “The chronic and progressive nature of diabetes has spurred significant efforts dedicated to the development of novel therapies to offer better treatment options for diabetics worldwide. Currently, GLP-1 agonists, DPP4 inhibitors and SGLT2 inhibitors represent the most popular classes of non-insulin therapies. A number of blockbuster drugs have emerged from these classes; examples include VICTOZA®, JANUVIA® / JANUMET® and INVOKANA® / INVOKAMET®.”

  • An overview of the overall market landscape highlighting important details, such as routes of administration, dosage frequency, type of molecules and key stakeholders, on molecules related to different drug classes.
  • Detailed profiles of drugs that have been recently approved / marketed or are in the late stages of development.

Goel further stated, “Drug developers continue to investigate alternate routes of administration and novel indications for these drug classes. Several innovative technology platforms have been developed to facilitate the oral or nasal delivery of GLP-1 agonists. Oral capsule formulations of DPP4 inhibitors have also been developed. Likewise, certain SGLT2 inhibitors are being evaluated for the treatment of type I diabetes. In addition, dual agonist drugs have also been developed to provide more effective treatment options.”
