The global enteral feeding devices market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% during 2021-2026. Enteral feeding devices refer to various tools and equipment used for the delivery of nutrients directly into the digestive tract through a feeding tube. This technique is primarily used for patients experiencing difficulties in the oral intake of food products, liquids and nutritional supplements. Some of the commonly used enteral feeding devices include feeding pumps, tubes, giving sets, enteral syringes and consumables. These devices enable consistent and accurate delivery of food containing proteins, carbohydrates, fats, water, minerals and vitamins. In comparison to the traditionally used polyvinylchloride feeding tubes, novel silicon-based variants are more flexible and do not cause irritation upon exposure to digestive enzymes.
The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer and gastrointestinal ailments, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the rising geriatric population that is more susceptible to such medical illnesses is driving the market growth. Diseases and neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, stroke and dementia, impact the patient's ability to swallow and cause malnourishment. This has enhanced the demand for enteral feeding devices that can aid in providing nutritional support through oral supplements and feeding tubes. In line with this, the advent of home enteral nutrition is also creating a positive outlook for the market. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the development of low-profile gastrostomy buttons that are suitable for both children and adult patients, are contributing to the market growth. Other factors, including improving healthcare infrastructure, along with the growing demand for neonatal and preterm enteral feeding devices, are expected to drive the market further.
