Category : Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC497


Enteral feeding is the technique of complete feed delivery and encompasses various essential carbohydrates, nutrients, vitamins, minerals and fats and is directly installed into the stomach, duodenum, jejunum etc. Enteral feeding devices are extensively deployed to provide patients with nutrition. It is primarily used for patients those are unable to eat/chew through mouth and swallow it. Enteral feeding devices are also known as artificial nutrition support systems. Enteral feeding devices are employed to deliver food, medication and nutrition directly to the intestine or stomach. Such devices are widely used to feed a special kind of diet, especially for bedridden or elderly patients, usually suffering from several chronic diseases such as cancer, inherited metabolic diseases, neurological disorders, gastro intestinal diseases and others. For the patients with functional gastro intestinal tract, enteral feeding technique is the best elected path for nutrition delivery when compared to parenteral feeding because gavage avoids various complications such as sepsis, infection and gallbladder disorders which are generally associated with parenteral nutrition. Delivery of nutrients directly to the stomach through enteral feeding is done through the use of feeding tube. Enteral nutrition is preferred as the first choice for patients those are unable to get enough nutrition through oral feeding route. Enteral feeding devices comprise flexible pumps and tubes which, are directly inserted into stomach or other parts of the intestine to provide hydration, medication and nutrition.

Market Dynamics

Rising need for enteral feeding devices among elderly population, especially in Europe and North America bolsters the global enteral feeding devices market growth. Moreover, rising number of premature births is another key factor fueling the growth of overall market. Rapid growth in geriatric population across the globe along with rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as severe pancreatitis, diabetes other gastrointestinal diseases are some of the key factors fueling the global enteral feeding devices market. In addition, increasing incidences of premature births is another major aspect accounting for the rapid growth of global enteral feeding devices market. Percentage of population over 65 years of age is anticipated to grow from 7% to 16% from 2000–2050 respectively, thus, demand for enteral feeding devices is in turn expected to witness significant and steady growth over the forecast period. Also, growth in the number of patients with suffering from diabetes mellitus is one of the vital factors expected to display a positive impact on the global enteral feeding devices market since diabetic patients require artificial feeding methods during their treatment. Unmet medical needs in various emerging economies including India, Argentina, Brazil and China along with the establishment of newly innovated products enabled with advancements in technology are projected to propel the growth of global enteral feeding devices market. Rising prevalence of chronic disorders such as neurological diseases and cancer, not only among aging population group but also among younger population, have in turn, increased the demand for chemotherapy and other reconstructive surgeries, thereby driving the demand for enteral feeding devices. Moreover, technological advancements focused on the development of simpler and lighter feeding devices coupled with rise in the need for aforementioned technologies and devices are projected to boost the market growth over the foreseeable years. However, inadvertent dislodgment of pumps and tubes leading to accidental failures during the use of enteral feeding devices resulting in accidental deaths and disabilities along with stringent regulations by various healthcare organizations and government departments are some factors likely to hinder the growth of global enteral feeding devices market.
