Enteral feeding involves the connection of a tube to the stomach, jejunum, or duodenum for the delivery of nutritive feed. This is necessary for patients unable to eat otherwise, due to oral cancer, gastrointestinal disorders, and other health issues. Aging population and chronic ailments like diabetes mellitus and severe pancreatitis drive the enteral feeding devices market. Rising preterm births are another driver.
A recent study by Grand View Research, Inc. states the market at USD 1, 810 million in 2013. The market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2014 to 2020. This may be attributed to demand for these devices in emerging countries like Brazil, China, and India. Technological innovations and novel products will also prove market beneficial.
