The enteral feeding devices market is projected to reach USD 2.80 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021. Rising geriatric population; growing prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, gastrointestinal diseases, neurological disorders, and hyper metabolism; and increasing number of preterm births are expected to fuel the growth of this market in the coming years. Several manufacturers in the enteral feeding devices industry are increasingly adopting patient safety techniques, such as unique connection systems, to avoid misconnection of feeding tubes. These players also have a major focus on user friendly features, such as portable feeding pumps, programming options, programmable flushing intervals, multiple languages, occlusion pressure alarm options, history of previous feed rates, and screen and program lock-out features to prevent manipulation. This trend is expected to promote the greater uptake of technologically advanced enteral feeding devices in the global clinical nutrition industry.
The global enteral feeding devices market is segmented based on product type, stage, end user, and application. Based on product type, the enteral feeding devices market is segmented into enteral feeding pumps, enteral feeding tubes, administration reservoirs, giving sets, and enteral syringes. The enteral feeding tubes market covers nasoenteric feeding tubes, oroenteric feeding tubes, and enterostomy tubes. The nasoenteric feeding tubes market is further segmented into nasogastric feeding tubes, nasoduodenal feeding tubes, and nasojejunal feeding tubes. Standard tubes and low-profile tubes are the two types of enterostomy tubes. Based on stage, the enteral feeding devices market is segmented into adults and pediatrics. Based on end users, the market is segmented into hospitals and ambulatory care settings. Based on application, the market is segmented into oncology, gastroenterology, diabetes, neurological disorders, hypermetabolism, psychiatrics, and other applications. This report also provides market information across major regional segments, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa.
