Rising number of premature births requiring neonatal intensive care and increasing prevalence of pediatric patients will significantly propel the enteral feeding tubes market demand. Furthermore, improving healthcare facilities such as introduction of new innovative products in nutritional therapy procedures, experienced medical professionals and cost-effective care are some other trends that will boost the market revenue. Increase in awareness regarding applications of enteral feeding tubes has fueled the product demand and adoption rate.
 

With the growing use of enteral feeding tubes, the feeding tube connectors have been used extensively. However, several cases of deaths pertaining to misconnections in the enteral feeding tubes have been reported, thereby resulting in certain measures taken by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure patients safety. The U.S. FDA has recommended manufacturers to implement the design changes to meet the ISO standards and clinicians to implement the usage of feeding tube connectors such as EnFit connectors.
 

With the outbreak of COVID-19 at a global level, there has been a considerable rise in the demand for nutritional delivery. According to the British Association of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (BAPEN), rising numbers of critical patients suffering from COVID-19 infection or similar symptoms of pneumonia that are on ventilators have increased the demand for nutritional delivery through enteral feeding. Attributing to this factor, the global enteral feeding tubes market has observed substantial growth. Moreover, various guidelines have been introduced during the ongoing pandemic by the National Nurses Nutrition Group for patients requiring nutritional support.

Growing neurological and mental health disorders will enhance the enteral feeding tubes market growth

Growing number of central nervous system and mental health disorders will fuel the demand for enteral feeding tubes. According to a recently published research, neurological disorder is the second leading cause of approximately 9 million deaths worldwide. Therefore, the management of nutritional status is a major aspect of multidisciplinary care of patients with neurological disorders such as stroke, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease. Furthermore, these diseases cause dysphagia, malnutrition, weight loss and lack of appetite, thereby increasing the demand for enteral feeding tubes. Additionally, rising number of mental health disorders such as apathy, depression, anxiety, and self-neglect caused by detrimental psychological impact of malnutrition is fuelling the necessity for adequate dietary intake in patients, boosting the market demand.
 

Growing preference for less-invasive enteral feeding tubes

The nasoenteric enteral feeding tubes market value was over USD 1,379 million in 2019 due to the major factors such as less invasive and safe provision of medicinal and nutritional support to the adult and geriatric patients suffering from acute chronic diseases, including gastrointestinal and neurological diseases. Moreover, the demand for nasoenteric tube has augmented owing to replacement of these tubes in shorter durations of time and require no surgery for tube placement. Furthermore, the use of nasoenteric tube is increasingly preferred to administer nutrients to preterm infants and paediatric patients, augmenting the need for enteral feeding tubes.
 

Increasing number of cancer disorders will foster the enteral feeding tubes market revenue

The cancer segment size was around USD 902.6 million in 2019 attributed to the increasing prevalence of specific types of cancer such as head and neck cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, and others. Cancer patients have difficulty in oral feeding and develop malnutrition. Therefore, these patients require nutritional feeding through nasoenteric and abdominal feeding tubes to combat throat pain, weight loss, malnutrition and pain associated with chemotherapy.
 

Growing number of pediatric diseases will drive the market size expansion

The paediatric segment in the enteral feeding tubes market is predicted to witness growth of 6.1% through 2026. Rising number of pediatric patients with physical disabilities and growth disorders require specialized attention for proper growth and development. This has led to increased adoption of administering nutrients through enteral feeding. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2015, preterm births were the leading cause of approximately 1 million deaths of children with less than 5 years of age. Therefore, the demand for nutritional therapy to provide adequate nutrition in treatment of poor growth, low weight and swallowing difficulty has led to increased adoption of enteral feeding tubes.

Growing need for short term feeding tube

The short-term enteral feeding tubes market revenue was more than USD 1,170 million in 2019. The demand for short-term feeding tubes has increased as the tube placement procedure is non-invasive and cost-effective. Additionally, factors such as replacement of these tubes in shorter durations of time, usually 1-6 months, with relatively low risk will enhance the demand for nutritional therapy by short-term feeding tubes. Moreover, growing need for nutritional therapy in children has increased the demand for short-term feeding tube.
 

Increasing need for cost-effective tube placement will uplift the enteral feeding tubes market value

Without surgery tube placement segment will register around 6.1% growth rate till 2026. Tube placement without surgery is cost-effective as compared to other placement procedures that require surgery and are more expensive comparatively.
