Increase in the number of malnourished children across the globe will expand the existing customer pool

The pediatric segment in the enteral feeding devices market accounted for USD 2.05 billion in 2020 led by the complications of enteral feeding and the high prevalence of preterm births. Enteral nutrition is effective in ensuring the nutritional requirements and the growth of infants and children. Hence, enteral nutrition is used for children that are unable to eat, malnourished, or lack dietary measures which are inadequate to fulfill nutritional needs.

Growing concerns related to chronic diseases will push the demand for enteral feeding devices

The enteral feeding devices market for non-malignant gastrointestinal (GI) disorders segment was valued at USD 546 million in 2020 impelled by the rising geriatric population suffering from chronic ailments related to non-malignant gastrointestinal (GI) disorders such as constipation, intestinal obstruction, and inflammatory bowel disease among others. Gut health and nutrition are closely associated, hence enteral feeding devices have a direct impact on the quality of life and overall health of a patient. As per the article published in 2017, in the U.S., around 15 out of every 100 admissions for abdominal pain are attributed to small-bowel obstruction, with 300,000 admissions every year. Enteral feeding devices can be used for these patients to add nutritious substances or medications to the stomach. Furthermore, these devices play a major role in the management of critically ill patients with gut dysfunction. 

Rising number of hospitals offering nutritional support will drive the industry progression

The hospitals segment captured 38% of the enteral feeding devices market share in 2020 owing to the accessibility and development of user-friendly enteral feeding devices and the favourable reimbursement policies. The demand for these healthcare facilities is increasing credited to the high utilization rate of enteral feeding tools in hospitals and rising investment by government organizations in hospitals along with an increasing number of experienced and trained professionals. Additionally, the change in preference from parenteral nutrition to enteral nutrition has significantly impacted the industry revenue. The preference for enteral feeding in different post-operative issues is estimated to rise due to significant improvements in artificial nutrition in terms of adoption and usage, thereby increasing the usage of these devices in hospitals.

Increasing incidence of preterm birth in China is projected to fuel the industry value

China held a significant revenue share in the Asia Pacific enteral feeding devices market and is expected to expand at 8.1% growth rate through 2027 on account of the growing prevalence of chronic disorder and the rising incidence of preterm births. As per the article published in 2018, in China, the incidence of preterm birth was around 7.3 per 100 births. The major risk factors associated with these preterm births are maternal pre-existing diseases, hypertensive disorders in pregnancy, or sexually transmitted disease.

According to the Global Cancer Observatory, in China, in 2018, about 4,285,033 new cancer cases were diagnosed. The rising prevalence of lifestyle disorders and other diseases including autism and diabetes would propel the demand for enteral feeding instruments in the country. The rising geriatric population prone to chronic disorders that result in a number of ailments such as neurological disorders, digestive disorders, and organ failure among others are also one of the significant factors for such devices in the country. Moreover, the presence of prominent leaders in China will further amplify the market growth over the forecast period.
