Report Overview

The global enteral feeding devices market size was valued at USD 2.41 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8% from 2019 to 2025. Factors such as growing demand from home care sector, prevalence of chronic diseases, incidence of preterm birth, and growing geriatric population are driving the growth.

Japan enteral feeding devices market

Soaring number of malnutrition patients across the globe is one of the significant factors propelling the market growth. For instance, according to a World Health Organization (WHO) report from 2017, around 2 billion people across the globe lack key micronutrients like vitamins and iron. According to a survey, 40% of hospitalized patients are suffering from malnutrition which has increased the morbidity and mortality rate. Thus, enteral feeding is the first line of choice to suffice the adequate amount of nutrients for malnourished and those who are unable to take nutrients orally.

Rising geriatric population suffering from neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, and dementia that impact swallowing, is the biggest target population for this market. Thus, the provision of nutritional support in the form of oral nutrition supplements and enteral nutrition feeding tube support mitigate the challenges of nutrition deficit among these diagnosed population.

Additionally, increasing the use of enteral nutrition to support patients with head and neck cancer who are at high risk of malnutrition is among the key factors anticipated to drive the market for enteral feeding devices. Patients diagnosed with these types of cancer have usually decreased oral intake owing to mouth or throat pain or difficulty in swallowing which further leads to poor nutritional status among these patients. Therefore, enteral feeding is recommended to maintain the essential nutrients in the body, or to provide medication and fluids among these patients.

The high prevalence of pre mature births, especially in developing economies such as China and India is among key factors driving the enteral feeding devices market. According to the WHO, one in every ten births is preterm, affecting families around the globe. High Incidence of pre-term births in emerging economies with constantly improving healthcare infrastructure, healthcare expenditure and patient awareness levels is expected to serve this market as a high impact rendering driver.

Product Insights

In 2018, enteral feeding pump segment generated a revenue of USD 1.09 billion. The low profile gastrostomy device is projected to be the fastest growing segment in the forthcoming years. Furthermore, enteral feeding is common across pediatric and adult population diagnosed with chronic diseases to enhance nutritional intake and prevent malnutrition, adoption of enteral feeding pump is significant in this population base which presents significant growth opportunities for the market participants. Also, it becomes essential to recognize the efficacy of such devices to dispense the nutrition in adequate amount. Thus, enteral feeding pump has garnered huge interest across hospitals and home care setting owing to their safety and appropriate amount of nutrition dispensed.

Furthermore, enteral feeding devices have advanced significantly since their inception. For instance, the safety of the pump has evolved with the advent of new closed systems known to reduce the microbial risk and incorrect administration and are more user friendly and accurate nutrition Therefore, the market has gained significant traction owing to the growing demand for these pump.

Europe enteral feeding devices market

Nasogastric (NG) incubation technique is one of the most performed procedures during the emergency in medical cases. Nasogastric tube is inserted which would provide important medicinal and nutritional support to diseased patients and also to the sick and premature babies that have a limited supply of nutrients and energy. Furthermore, patients diagnosed with critical conditions associated with swallowing disorders such as neurological disorders, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, dementia, stroke, and physical obstruction require NG tubes to provide medicinal and nutritional support for patients.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest market share of nearly 38% in terms of revenue in 2018. This is attributed to several factors such as increasing prevalence of lifestyle diseases and other disorders such as diabetes, autism, and cancer; increasing geriatric population prone to chronic diseases that result in a number of ailments such as digestive disorders, neurological disorders, and organ failure among others. Patients undergoing cosmetic surgeries are also one of the significant pools for such devices. For instance, based on annual plastic surgery procedural statistics, in 2017, around 17.5 million surgical cosmetic and minimally invasive procedures were performed in U.S., 2% more than 2016. Thus, high demand across regional hospitals is high since it is considered one of the safest ways to help patients meet nutritional requirement.

Asia Pacific is projected to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Rise in the number of hospital admissions, geriatric population, number of malnutrition patients, and preterm births are some of the factors expected to propel the regional growth. For instance, according to the WHO, from January 2014 to November 2015, there were around 3.5 million preterm births in India, followed by China with 1.71 million preterm births.

Furthermore, Europe is also contributing significantly to the market. Growing awareness regarding the use of enteral feeding devices, effective reimbursement policies, and increasing need for reconstructive surgeries and radiotherapy procedures are some of the factors that have increased the regional demand.
