Diabetes refers to a group of metabolic disease characterized by high blood sugar level. It occurs due to inadequate secretion of insulin inside the pancreas. Some of the common symptoms for diabetes are frequent urination, excessive thirst, increased hunger, weight loss and tiredness. Type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes are three common types of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease occurred due to high blood glucose level whereas, type 2 diabetes is a lifelong chronic disease caused due to excess secretion of insulin inside the body. Type 2 diabetes is the common form of diabetes. Diabetes is more common in aged people; however, its prevalence is steadily increasing in adults and children. Severe problems such as blindness, kidney failure, coronary heart disease and strokes may result due to lack of proper treatment of diabetes. It also causes blindness, amputation, and kidney failure. Diabetes can be treated by maintaining appropriate levels of insulin in the body. Insulin helps control blood glucose levels and subsequently drives energy for the proper execution of all cellular and biological activities.

China and India are expected to be the fastest-growing human insulin markets in the Asia Pacific region.

Some of the key driving forces for human insulin market in emerging countries are rise in disposable income, large pool of patients and increasing awareness about diabetes and diabetes-related disorders.
