The global human insulin market is predicted to garner a CAGR of 12.1% during the forecast period (2017-2023), Market Research Future (MRFR) reveals in the latest report. Human insulin can be defined as a synthetic, which is largely manufactured in laboratories by developing insulin protein with E. coli bacteria.
The Human Insulin Market Share is expected to witness a sturdy growth in the foreseeable future, mainly due to the surging prevalence and occurrence of Diabetes Mellitus. The soaring prevalence of obesity and changing lifestyle are the root causes of widespread diabetes, which induces demand from the human insulin market.
Human insulin is a form of synthetic insulin that is grown to mimic human insulin. Before the development of human insulin, which was first approved for pharmaceutical use in 1982, pig insulin was the most common solution in use. Human insulin is generated by growing insulin proteins within the E. coli bacteria. The growing development of the medical research sector has proven highly beneficial for the global human insulin market, as increasing efforts have been made for the development of highly sophisticated human insulin products.
The growing prevalence of diabetes is likely to be the major driver for the global human insulin market over the forecast period. The threat of diabetes has grown in developed countries as a result of the increasing consumption of sugar-rich, unhealthy foods, allied to a mostly sedentary lifestyle. The increasing Westernization of the dietary patterns in developing countries has also led to a significant growth in the prevalence of diabetes in emerging regions such as Asia Pacific, which is likely to drive the human insulin market over the forecast period.

Human Insulin Market: Segmental Analysis
The human insulin market is segmented on the basis of indication, type, and end-users.
By type, the human insulin market is segmented into traditional human insulin and modern human insulin. Of these, modern human insulin offers effective results compared to traditional human insulin. Duration and dosages of modern human insulin vary from one person to another, as insulin requirement differs.
By indication, the human insulin market is segmented into type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.
By end user, the market comprises hospitals & clinics and research institutes.
Considering the global scenario, America will lead the global market for human insulin. The growth is mainly driven by the surging healthcare spending, inclination towards quality healthcare, and existence of leading players in the market. South America is anticipated to be the fastest expanding region due to soaring funding for R&D activities by some of the major players in the region.
The human insulin market in Europe is largely driven by research funding in diabetes diagnosis, and its treatment as a major part of the population suffers from diabetes. The market in Germany is driven by the surging support by the government for R&D activities, along with a huge demand for human insulin in the region. Moreover, the rising incidences of unhealthy lifestyle and obesity among the people are increasing the risk of diabetes among the population.
Asia Pacific region will witness significant growth in the coming years, mainly due to the increasing awareness regarding human insulin and the presence of a huge population base. In this region, India, China, and Japan are considered the major contributors owing to the improvement in disease diagnosis and treatment services. The presence of huge geriatric population who are diagnosed with diabetes also contributes to the growth of the regional market. India, on the other hand, is considered the hub of diabetes and experiences the fastest growth, with the majority of people facing the problem of obesity and its associated diseases.
July 2019: Led by Prof. Norman Metanis, a team of researchers from the Institute of Chemistry at Hebrew University has developed an entirely new process which allows chemical production with human insulin. This propels the stability and effect on the hormonal balance in the body of a human.
