Enteral Feeding Devices Market Scenario


Global Enteral Feeding Devices Market is expected to register a healthy CAGR over the forecast period. The market held a market value of USD 2,302.4 million in 2017 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period. Enteral feeding is a nutritional therapy process where nutrients are supplying directly into the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). It is a therapy for those patients who are unable to get adequate nourishment by eating or drinking or who cannot swallow food by mouth. Enteral feeding devices help in delivering medications and nutrients directly into the stomach, duodenum, or jejunum through either the nose, mouth or the direct percutaneous route. Factors representing the market growth are worldwide growing geriatric population along with the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, the rising shift from parenteral to enteral nutrition, and surging incidence of preterm births. For instance, The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that global older population was 841.0 million in 2013 that was increased to 962.3 million in 2017, which is projected to reach more than 2.0 billion by 2050. On the contrary, complications associated with enteral feeding devices including inadvertent dislodgement of tubes and stringent reimbursement policies are anticipated to hinder the market growth over the forecast period.
