Rising number of premature births requiring neonatal intensive care and increasing prevalence of pediatric patients will significantly propel the enteral feeding tubes market demand.

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.
