Market Overview

The major factors attributing to the growth of the Asia Pacific clinical nutrition market include an increase in the prevalence of metabolic disorders, a rise in the geriatric population in the Asia Pacific Region and high spending on healthcare. For instance, the prevalence of metabolic disorders has increased over the past decade. The actual number of patients undergoing diagnosis of metabolic disorders has increased over the decade, hence, there is an increase in the number of patients diagnosed in the Asia Pacific region.

Dietary therapy is critical for normal growth and development, to prevent acute complications, and/or to prevent long-term complications of the given disorder. A failure to follow specific dietary treatment can lead to complications and even death in individuals with metabolic disorders. Nutrition therapy for patients with inherited metabolic disorders is lifelong. The management of patients with many inborn errors of metabolism requires a multidisciplinary approach that combines both nutrition and medical management. In these disorders, nutrition therapy is a critical component of the management to prevent acute complications, such as metabolic decompensation, and/or to prevent long-term complications of the given disorder.

Most of the metabolic syndromes result in situations where the body lacks the capability to synthesize non-essential molecules, like vitamins, amino acids, and several molecules involved in metabolic pathways. Most of these conditions can be managed only with supplementation of one or two nutrients. All these factors are helping the market growth. However, there are few factors that may restrain market growth such as the heterogeneous nature of government coverage/reimbursement across countries.

Scope of the Report

Key Market Trends

Oral and Enternal is Expected to Hold the Largest Market share in the Route of Administration Segment

Oral clinical nutrition accounts for the largest share, in terms of value, in this segment. Among all the routes of administration available for clinical nutrition, oral and enteral routes are used the most, followed by the parenteral route. This is mainly because of the additional cost of processing the product/nutrient involved in parenteral routes. Until other routes of administration are deemed necessary, physicians mostly prefer the oral route, as it involves lesser complexities and costs, compared to the other two routes of administration. As long as the patients can consume food orally, their stomach and intestine functionalities are not affected, the oral route is the preferred route of administration, for clinical nutrition. This is one of the reasons for the large market share, in terms of value, of orally administered clinical nutrition.
