Published Date: August 31, 2016 Author: Global Market Insights, Inc.
Enteral Feeding Devices Market size is estimated to reach USD 3.5 billion by 2024; as per a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Enteral feeding is a method of delivering nutritionally complete feed, containing carbohydrate, fat, protein, minerals and vitamins directly into the gastrointestinal (GI) tract by use of a tube (tube feeding) connected to an electric pump. Surging geriatric population, rising prevalence of chronic ailments and increasing demand for neonatal and pre-term enteral feeding is anticipated to drive industry growth.
Introduction of technologically advanced products such as reverse ballon design, tri-funnel replacement G-tube and J-tube will meet different patients’ needs with regards to accuracy, portability and cost effectiveness is expected boost industry growth in coming years.
Implementation of improved reimbursement policies aimed at providing subsidies to these devices and growing market penetration of enteral feeding pumps such as flexiflo quantum, companion enteral nutrition pumps and patrol enteral pump will spur industry growth.
The risk associated with use of enteral feeding devices includes blockage, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Re-feeding syndrome leads to a rapid loss of magnesium, phosphate and potassium, causing severe physiological complications. Contamination of equipment is another common problem associated with its use. The associated risks are expected to impede industry growth during the forecast period.
Europe, led by Germany accounts for the largest industry share in 2015. Growing R&D in advanced enteral feeding devices, increasing prevalence of pre-term births and implementation of industry friendly regulations such as the introduction of ISO standards for small bore connectors should fuel industry growth.
Increasing healthcare expenditure and rising awareness levels in Asia-Pacific and Latin America offer potential opportunities for industry growth. Emerging countries such as India, China and Brazil with their high unmet medical needs, and increased levels of income are expected to drive industry growth in the coming years. Furthermore, higher geriatric population in Japan is anticipated to elevate enteral feeding devices demand.
