Additionally, the aging population and rising awareness about the importance of proper nutritional support have further fuelled demand for parenteral nutrition solutions. Technological advancements in healthcare and the development of innovative formulations and delivery methods have also played a pivotal role in this growth.

Parenteral nutrition, a component of clinical nutrition, also known as intravenous nutrition or total parenteral nutrition (TPN), is a medical technique that provides essential nutrients and fluids directly into a person's bloodstream. It is used when a patient is unable to obtain proper nutrition through oral or enteral (tube feeding) routes, often due to gastrointestinal issues, surgery, or other medical condition.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a moderate positive impact on the parenteral nutrition market. The disruption in global supply chains and transportation systems hindered the timely delivery of parenteral nutrition products during the initial stage of pandemic. However, in the latter half of the year, the parenteral nutrition played a valuable role in the treatment of COVID-19 patients, offering a moderate positive impact, particularly in cases where conventional oral or enteral nutrition is insufficient or unfeasible.

Parenteral Nutrition Market Trends

  • The increasing prevalence of metabolic & chronic disorders is anticipated to drive the demand for parenteral nutrition solutions and services across the globe. The significant upsurge in the prevalence rates of non-communicable diseases including obesity, malnutrition, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases among others that are known to lead to prolonged hospitalization, and increased mortality rates are expected to prove conducive to the industry development.
  • These disorders often lead to impaired digestion, absorption, or utilization of essential nutrients, including proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. As a result, patients with metabolic disorders require parenteral nutrition to meet their nutritional needs. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2019, cardiovascular conditions were responsible for 17.9 million deaths, accounting for an estimated 31% of the deaths globally. The management of such chronic diseases is generally multidimensional that comprises several aspects including parenteral nutrition.


Further, the rise in metabolic diseases and related mortality offers immense potential for business growth and opportunity for the market players to establish and penetrate the untapped market. Thus, the growing incidence of metabolic and chronic diseases is expected to expedite the market demand.
