GBI Research finds that the global diabetes therapeutics market is dominated by Novo Nordisk, Sanofi and Takeda, which contribute almost 60% of the market share in the global diabetes market. The competitive landscape in the market is set to change due to the success of recent launches and the potential success of new drugs that will be launched during the period 2010-2017. The market will also be impacted by the decline in the sales of leading products such as GlaxoSmithKline's Avandia and Takeda's Actos.
