Increasing Obesity Levels and High Genetic Vulnerability Driving the Prevalence of Diabetes in India


As a result of a higher percentage of body fat to muscle, Indians are more vulnerable to type-2 diabetes compared to other population groups.

New Delhi, India, April 05, 2013 --(PR.com)-- IMARC Group, one of the world’s leading research and advisory firms, finds that the total number of diabetes patients in India grew at CAGR of nearly 3% during 2004 - 2012. Estimates from their latest report entitled “Indian Diabetes Market Report: Epidemiology, Patients, Prevalence, Oral Anti-diabetics, Insulin and Diagnostics,” suggests that the total number of diabetes patients in India is expected to reach 107 million by 2032.

Findings from the report suggest that a major driver of the diabetes epidemic in India is the increasing levels of obesity. The Indian population that had faced under nutrition for a long time is now exposed to high fat diets and sedentary lifestyles. As a result of increasing disposable incomes and flourishing fast food chains, there were around 157 million overweight and 24 million obese people living in India in 2010. The report expects these levels to increase significantly by 2015.

Apart from the increasing obesity levels, the report also found that Indians are genetically more vulnerable to diabetes compared to other population groups. According to an analyst at IMARC Group “As a result of a higher percentage of body fat to muscle, Indians are more vulnerable to type-2 diabetes compared to other population groups. This fat increases the sugar levels as it gets deposited around the abdomen and interferes with insulin. As a result, Indians get diabetes at a much younger age compared to other population groups.”

IMARC’s new report “Indian Diabetes Market Report: Epidemiology, Patients, Prevalence, Oral Anti-diabetics, Insulin and Diagnostics” provides an analytical and statistical insight into the Indian diabetes market. The report provides both current and future trends in the prevalence, demographical breakup, diagnosis and treatment of diabetes in India. The report has segmented the Indian diabetes market into three segments - Oral Anti-diabetics, Insulin and Diabetes Diagnostics. For each of the aforementioned categories, the report provides historical and future market sales, performance of key classes and the performance of top players.

The research study serves as an exceptional tool to understand the epidemiology, market trends, therapeutic structure, competitive structure and the outlook of the Indian diabetes market. This report can serve as an excellent guide for investors, researchers, consultants, marketing strategists and all those who are planning to foray into the Indian diabetes market in some form or the other.
