Why Medtronic's Tiny Diabetes Segment is Generating Excitement

Published: Jul 21, 2017

- Medtronic's Diabetes Group is the smallest, but fastest growing segment in the company's portfolio. Investors are excited about its prospects due to the 670G insulin pump.

- The 670G device is the first insulin pump for diabetes patients that is integrated with its sensors. This drastically reduces some of the drawbacks of using insulin pumps.

- The Diabetes Group segment is expected to grow significantly as Medtronic iterates on the 670G. Longer-term, the segment could potentially double in size as Medtronic becomes a larger diabetes player.
