Enteral Feeding Devices Market Analysis

The enteral feeding devices market was valued at USD 3,735.79 million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 5,451.06 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 6.50% over the forecast period (2022-2027).

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the enteral feeding devices market globally. According to a research article titled "The Effects of Enteral Nutrition in Critically Ill Patients with COVID-19: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis" published in March 2022, due to the disturbance of the normal intestinal mucosa, patients with COVID-19 who are extremely unwell may have reduced nutrient absorption. They frequently have a considerable increase in their needs for protein and calories, as well as high levels of inflammation, stress, and catabolism. To prevent malnutrition in these patients, immediate enteral nutrition support and the administration of adequate nutrients are crucial. Moreover, according to guidelines by the European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN) on nutrition in the ICU, gastric enteral nutrition is advised for severe COVID-19 patients and should be preferably performed using a pump with a flow regulator within 48 hours of admission to the ICU. Hence, the COVID-19 pandemic increased the need for enteral feeding devices, especially for those in intensive care units, thereby positively impacting the market growth over the pandemic phase.

Moreover, the factors responsible for the market’s growth include the rising burden of chronic diseases, the increasing number of premature deaths, and the growing demand for enteral feeding in-home care settings.

The rising burden of chronic diseases is a major factor driving the market’s growth. For instance, as per the data published by the American Cancer Society, in 2022, nearly 26,380 new cases of stomach cancer and approximately 11,090 deaths from stomach cancer are estimated to occur in the year 2022. The organization further stated that gastric cancer accounts for about 1.5% of all new cancers diagnosed in the United States every year. Furthermore, as per a 2022 update by the International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD), 10 to 15% of the population is affected by irritable bowel syndrome worldwide. Likewise, according to research conducted by Crohn's & Colitis UK in 2022, 1 in every 123 persons in the United Kingdom has ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease. In the country, this equates to a total of close to 500,000 individuals who have IBD. Since these diseases are frequently associated with the progressive development of malnutrition, these statistics indicate that the demand for enteral feeding devices is anticipated to increase over the coming years. Thus, the high burden of chronic diseases is leading to an increased demand for enteral feeding devices, thereby contributing to market growth.

However, complications associated with enteral feeding tubes and healthcare reimbursement issues are the major factors restraining the market’s growth.

Enteral Feeding Devices Industry Segments

As per the scope of the report, enteral feeding refers to the delivery of a nutritionally complete feed containing protein, carbohydrates, fat, water, minerals, and vitamins directly into the stomach, duodenum, or jejunum through devices such as tubes and pumps. It is used for people who have a functional gastrointestinal tract but are unable to consume foods orally to meet their nutrient requirements. The enteral feeding devices market is segmented by product type (enteral feeding pumps, enteral feeding tubes, and other product types), age group (adults and pediatrics), end user (hospitals, ambulatory care services, and other end users), application (oncology, neurology, critical care, diabetes, gastroenterology, and other applications), and geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East and Africa, and South America). The report also covers the estimated market sizes and trends for 17 countries across major regions globally. The report offers the value (in USD million) for the above segments.

Enteral Feeding Devices Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Enteral Feeding Devices Market according to our research experts:

Diabetes Segment Is Expected to Witness Significant Growth During the Forecast Period

By application, the diabetes segment is expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period. The major factors fueling the growth of the segment are the increasing burden of diabetes, the growing geriatric population, and the increasing implementation of strategic initiatives by market players.

For instance, incidences of diabetes have increased over the years globally and are expected to increase further. As per a 2021 update by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), approximately 537 million adults (20-79 years) are living with diabetes. As per the same source, the total number of people living with diabetes is projected to rise to 643 million by 2030 and 783 million by 2045. The source also reports that 1 in 4 adults with diabetes live in low- and middle-income countries, and almost 1 in 2 (240 million) adults living with diabetes are undiagnosed. Enteral nutrition plays an important role in reducing the risk of malnutrition in diabetic patients by providing the necessary macro-and micronutrients, such as energy, protein, vitamins, and minerals. Thus, the demand for enteral feeding devices is likely to increase among the diabetic patient population in the near future.

Several market players are also engaged in implementing strategic initiatives, which are contributing to segment's growth. For instance, in July 2021, Medtronic received approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its extended-wear infusion set, designed to last more than twice as long as existing infusion sets that connect traditional tubed pumps to the body for insulin delivery.

Thus, the aforementioned factors are anticipated to boost the segment’s growth throughout the analysis period.

North America Expected to Dominate the Enteral Feeding Devices Market over the Forecast Period

The North American region, particularly the United States, has a developed and well-structured health care system. The region is a hub for research and development activities and encourages key players to establish their headquarters in the region through its policies and investment support.

An increase in the burden of chronic diseases, the geriatric population, and surgical procedures in the region are expected to drive the demand for enteral feeding devices to support the nutritional requirements of individuals who cannot ingest and digest food. For instance, as per statistics by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) Diabetes Atlas, 10th Edition, in 2021, the number of people identified with diabetes in thousands was 32,215.3 in the United States, and the number is estimated to reach 36,289.9 by 2045. Patients with diabetes are likely to have a threefold higher risk of being hospitalized. Many of the consequences of improperly managed diabetes, such as strokes, can necessitate enteral feeding.

Likewise, as per the data published by the Canadian Cancer Society, in 2022, around 4,100 Canadians will be diagnosed with stomach cancer and 2,000 Canadians will die from the disease. Furthermore, the organization stated that approximately 2,600 men and about 1,450 women will be diagnosed with gastric cancer in the year 2022. Thus, such statistics indicate that the demand for enteral feeding devices for nutrition management within the country will increase over the coming years, ultimately boosting the market growth.

Moreover, market players are engaged in various strategies that are contributing to market growth. For instance, in May 2021, QMD reported the addition of Nasogastric Tubes to its Degania Enteral Feeding Product Portfolio. Nasogastric tubes are manufactured from premium materials and designed to comply with ENFit connection standards for improved patient safety. Likewise, in September 2021, Vonco Products’ EnteraLoc Flow direct-connect enteral nutritional delivery system received 510 (K) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA). The system, which features a pouch with a leak-proof seal, Vonco’s direct-connect ENFit device, and a tube for food delivery, can deliver nutrition in either a hospital or home care setting and can be tailored to meet most dietary requirements.

Thus, due to the abovementioned developments, the market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period.
