Report ID: GMI4113

Summary Methodology

Nasogastric Tube Market size is projected to experience significant growth from 2019 to 2025.

Nasogastric tube (NGT) market will witness a significant growth in the forthcoming years owing to the growing number of premature births and subsequent demand for enteral nutrition among them. Premature babies have a limited supply of energy and nutrients, so it is important that they must receive sufficient nutritional feeds more often, without reducing their energy levels. Thus, nasogastric tubes are used to ensure proper nourishment to these babies. Thus, with rising number of premature and sick babies, nasogastric tube market will significantly expand  in the coming years.

The demand for nasogastric tubes will spur over the forthcoming years owing to rising incidence of chronic diseases. The most common enteral feeding tube used in hospitalized children is a nasogastric tube that is placed through the nostril, through the esophagus and finally into the stomach. Pediatric and geriatric hospitalized patients constantly require a nasogastric tube embedded for the purpose of controlling enteral feeding, medications or for gastric decompression. Thus, the growing number of hospitalizations among pediatric and geriatric population base will offer lucrative opportunities for nasogastric tube market growth in the projected timeframe.

Barriers such as vigorous suction due to nasogastric tubes, that may damage the gastric mucosa and cause significant bleeding, interferes with the endoscopic assessment and diagnostic procedures. Furthermore, skin irritation and infections caused by nasogastric procedures due to improper sterilization may restrain the demand for nasogastric tubes.  

Levin catheter segment will hold a significant revenue size over the forecast years due to its widespread usage in healthcare institutions, clinics, and hospitals. Levin catheters are comparatively safer tubes, with low complication rate. These tubes are available for single use that can reduce the infection rate and transmission of patient-to-patient infections. Levin tubes are made of thermo-stable material  with smooth tip that lowers the insertion trauma. Such benefits associated with Levin catheter will escalate its adoption, thereby stimulating the segmental growth.

Nasogastric procedures in pediatrics are projected to grow at a rapid rate in the estimation period. NGTs are the most common devices used for enteral feeding among pediatrics in the hospitals. A recent study conducted in 2016 in the U.S., reported that about 25% of hospitalized pediatric patients require a temporary feeding through nasogastric tube. Feeding through NGTs helps the child to get adequate nutrition to develop, grow, and recover from illness, thereby boosting the segmental growth in the projected timeframe.  

Hospitals segment will witness lucrative growth over the forecast period. Aging population normally suffers from gastrointestinal and ingestion problems. Therefore, essential nutrients are supplemented through enteral route in such cases, thus positively influencing demand for nasogastric tubes. Furthermore, growing incidence of chronic diseases and expanding geriatric pool will drive the segmental growth in the coming years.

U.S. nasogastric tube market is estimated to foresee a significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing number of premature births in the U.S. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2018, approximately 5,17,400 babies were reported with preterm birth complications. Adoption of new intubation techniques for nasogastric tube will further impel the industry growth. Furthermore, rising elderly patient pool coupled with sophisticated healthcare infrastructure will aid U.S. nasogastric tube industry size in the coming years.

India nasogastric tube market is estimated to witness lucrative growth over the projected timeframe. In India, a large number of geriatric population base is suffering from nutritional problems and swallowing difficulties, thus increasing the demand for nasogastric tube in the coming years. Moreover, changing lifestyle factors, rising awareness levels, and increasing malnourished population will fuel India nasogastric tube market growth over the forthcoming years.
