 Enteral Feeding Devices Market Size to grow by USD 1537 million between 2024-2028

According to a research report “ Enteral Feeding Devices Market” by End-user (Hospitals, Homecare) Product (Accessories, Enteral pumps) Geography (North America, Europe, Asia, Rest of World (ROW))- Global Forecast to 2028 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 1537 million, at a CAGR of over 6.78% during the forecast period. The global rise in chronic conditions, including cancers and neurological disorders, as well as the increasing number of preterm births, is significantly driving the adoption of enteral feeding devices. Oral cancer, a prevalent condition, is on the rise, with major contributing factors being smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. In the US alone, throat cancer accounts for approximately 3% of all new cancer cases each year, and the global market for throat cancer therapeutics has experienced notable growth. This trend is expected to continue, further boosting the demand for enteral feeding devices.

By End-user, the Hospitals segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

The Enteral Feeding Devices Market encompasses a range of accessories, including feeding tubes, giving sets, and enteral syringes. The accessories segment is poised for significant expansion throughout the forecast period, fueled by the escalating demand for enteral nutrition, the introduction of new products, government initiatives advocating safe enteral nutrition guidelines, and favorable reimbursement policies for home enteral nutrition in developed nations. Key drivers for this segment's growth include the increasing utilization of enteral syringes and feeding tubes. However, concerns regarding the potential risk of infection from prolonged use of accessories have prompted government organizations to issue guidelines recommending frequent replacement during enteral feeding procedures.

By Product, Accessories  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

In the healthcare industry, hospitals represent a substantial market for enteral feeding devices. Patients in Intensive Care Units (ICUs), surgical wards, and other specialized units frequently rely on enteral feeding solutions due to medical conditions and the necessity for close monitoring. Enteral feeding is an essential method for hospitalized patients who cannot consume food orally due to conditions such as trauma, surgery, or illnesses like cancer, neurological disorders, and gastrointestinal diseases. Enteral feeding devices are indispensable in delivering vital nutrients and medications to these patients, addressing their unique nutritional requirements and contributing significantly to their overall care.

North America is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024

The Enteral Feeding Devices market represents a significant business opportunity due to the growing prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders and increasing patient preference for non-surgical feeding methods. Key players in this market include Fresenius Kabi, Nestle Health Science, and Abbott, who offer advanced solutions for enteral nutrition delivery. Market growth is driven by factors such as technological advancements, rising healthcare expenditures, and an aging population. These companies are investing in research and development to launch innovative products and expand their market share.

Research Analysis Overview

The Enteral Feeding Devices Market encompasses a range of products used in the administration of Enteral Nutrition (EN) to individuals with rare genetic diseases and congenital disorders, pre-term infants, neonatal patients, and pediatric patients. These devices include Enteral Feeding Tubes (EFTs) and Enteral Feeding Pumps (EFPs), which facilitate the delivery of human milk or specialized formulas via bolus or continuous infusion. Breathing, suckling, and swallowing difficulties common in these patient populations necessitate the use of such devices to reduce morbidity and neonatal mortality. Complications from EN include breathing difficulties, aspiration, and tube misplacement. Parenteral feeding therapies, such as Central Nervous System (CNS) disorders, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, and chronic illnesses, also require enteral feeding devices. NCBI studies suggest that EFTs, including J-tubes and Tri-funnel replacement G-tubes, are effective in Surgical Trauma ICUs and for managing gastrointestinal diseases like severe pancreatitis and diabetes in the geriatric population. However, proper placement and care are crucial to prevent complications.

Market Research Overview

The Enteral Feeding Devices Market encompasses a range of products used to provide balanced nutritional intake to patients in various healthcare settings, including home care, acute hospitals, and community settings. These devices are particularly important for individuals with gastrointestinal disorders, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, cystic fibrosis, anorexia, sepsis, Parkinson's disease, motor neuron disease, liver disease, multiple sclerosis, cancer, and other chronic diseases. Tube feeds are a common form of enteral nutrition, delivered through various types of enteral feeding tubes, such as those placed in the jejunum, duodenum, stomach, or abdominal wall. Enterostomy feeding tubes are used for long-term support, while home healthcare services facilitate their use in community settings. Reimbursement policies and federal funding play a significant role in the adoption of enteral feeding devices. Complications, such as tube displacement, blockage, and infection, can impact treatment responses and healthcare costs. Reverse balloon designs, bolus delivery, and enteral feeding pumps are among the advancements addressing these challenges. The market caters to diverse patient populations, including children, adults, and those with rare genetic disorders like Prader-Willi Syndrome. Enteral nutrition is essential for neonatal patients, particularly pre-term infants, addressing morbidity and neonatal mortality. Enteral feeding devices are also crucial for managing clinical problems in patients with chronic diseases, nervous system disorders, and cancer.
