Market Dynamics

The enteral feeding devices market size is expected to witness significant growth owing to rise in prevalence of chronic diseases, surge in number of preterm births, and rise in geriatric population. Chronic conditions such as diabetes, cancer, neurological disorders, and gastrointestinal diseases have seen a notable increase globally. According to the National Cancer Institute, in 2022, 20 million new cancer cases were diagnosed globally. This surge can be attributed to factors such as aging populations, lifestyle changes, and increased rates of obesity and sedentary habits. As these diseases often impair the ability to consume and digest food normally, there is a growing need for alternative nutritional support methods, such as enteral feeding. Enteral feeding devices play a pivotal role in ensuring that patients receive the required nutrients, vitamins, and minerals in a controlled and easily digestible form.

In addition, rise in incidence of preterm birth is expected to drive the enteral feeding devices market growth. According to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention, in 2021, preterm birth affected about 1 of every 10 infants born in the U.S. Premature infants often face challenges in feeding due to their underdeveloped digestive systems. Healthcare providers increasingly rely on enteral feeding devices to deliver essential nutrients directly into the stomach or intestines of these vulnerable neonates. Enteral feeding devices play a crucial role in ensuring adequate nutrition and promoting healthy growth and development in preterm infants, thereby reducing the risk of complications associated with inadequate nutrition, such as growth failure, infections, and neurodevelopmental disabilities. As healthcare facilities strive to enhance the quality of care for preterm infants and improve their survival rates, the demand for enteral feeding devices is expected to surge. 

Furthermore, according to  enteral feeding devices market forecast analysis rise in awareness about the importance of nutrition among patients and caregivers is expected to drive the demand for enteral feeding devices. For instance, in December 2021, Nestle Health Science created a website in collaboration with healthcare professionals to offer information and support at every phase of the disease. The company emphasized the value of nutrition as part of a new initiative to inform and support cancer patients and their caregivers. As the understanding of impact of nutrition on overall health and wellbeing becomes more widespread, there's a growing recognition of the critical need for efficient delivery mechanisms, particularly in cases where oral intake is compromised. This heightened awareness has not only been driven by healthcare professionals but also by patients and caregivers who are increasingly educated about the vital role nutrition plays in recovery and maintenance of health. Thus, rise in awareness about nutrition and its importance is expected to present significant enteral feeding devices market opportunity for growth.
