The International Diabetes Federation estimates that more than 285 million people world-wide have diabetes and 438 million people will have this disease within 20 years. Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) accounts for more than 90% of all diabetes and is characterized by insulin resistance combined with relatively reduced insulin secretion. The seven major markets for diabetes are expected to grow to 35 billion in 10 years driven by patient population expansion and novel therapies.
