Thus, the nasogastric tubes offer proper nourishment to premature born infants which will surge the demand for these tubes in the market having a positive impact on the industry growth in coming years.

Exponentially rising geriatric population coupled with growing prevalence of chronic ailments including diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases resulting into increase of patient pools are the key factors driving the growth of nasogastric tubes market. The growing incidences of hospitalization among both pediatric and elderly populace will offer lucrative avenues for the business growth as nasogastric tubes are increasingly required in hospitals for facilitating enteral feeding, providing medicinal support and gastric decompression. Additionally, changing trends pertaining shift to enteral from parenteral feeding and rising consciousness among populace regarding enteral feeding will foster the industry growth in the near future.

However, restrains including occurrence of skin irritation and infections due to nasogastric procedures caused by improper sterilization, tube dislocation can impede the market growth. Furthermore, high intensity of suction of these tubes during removal of gastric wastes can potentially damage gastric mucosa and result into bleeding would be another hampering factor for the nasogastric tubes market.

Increasing incidences of premature births to amplify the market growth

The ever rising high birth rate in developing and developed countries, rising prevalence of premature births will surge the demand for nasogastric tubes in the market.

Premature born babies are prone to problems including simultaneous ventilation, oral aversion and neurological disorders like cerebral palsy limiting the food consumption would aid in the development of the nasogastric tubes market.   

Rise in geriatric population and life expectancy to fuel the growth

Rising geriatric population, increasing incidences of various diseases owing to rising age creating a patient pool and demand for nutritional support are the factors contributing to the market growth.

The rising birthrate, advancements in the medical field and reduction in the cost of treatments along with use of various multi-faceted therapies against number of chronic diseases has increased the life expectancy has led to the global population is aging rapidly. As per the report, ‘World Ageing Population, 2019’ the older population, i.e., people belonging to age group 65 and above accounted for approximately 702.9 million cases of GI disorders all around the world and it is expected to hit 1500 million mark. The UN statistics also highlight the growth of elderly population aged 60 years and above is projected to reach 2.0 billion by 2050 from current figures that is 960 million in 2017. Therefore, increasing geriatric population would contribute to rise in the market for nasogastric tubes.
