Global Enteral Access Feeding Devices Market $6.8 Billion by 2029

The global market for enteral access feeding devices projected to reach $6.8 billion by 2029, expanding at a CAGR of 7.6% over the forecast period, driven by growing elderly population, rising cases of preterm births, and technological advancements.

  • Enterostomies are key interventions in the management of various surgical and nonsurgical pediatric conditions. They are employed for feeding, decompression, or a combination of both.
    • These enteral access devices need to be cared for properly to avert patient discomfort, mechanical device-related complications, and interruptions in the delivery of needed nutrients, hydration, and medications. 
    • Common indications for enteral feeding devices include feeding and swallowing dysfunction, severe gastroesophageal reflux, malnutrition, neurological disorders, and prolonged ventilation.
Global Enteral Feeding Devices Market

Nutrition plays an important role in maintaining health as well as in the prevention and management of a variety of diseases. Enteral feeding is used commonly in patients with dysphagia (any impairment of eating, drinking and swallowing). 

  • The more common conditions that necessitate feeding tubes include prematurity, failure to thrive (or malnutrition), neurologic and neuromuscular disorders, inability to swallow, anatomical and post-surgical malformations of the mouth and esophagus, cancer, Sanfilippo syndrome, and digestive disorders. 
  • For many individuals, enteral nutrition support is a lifesaving modality to prevent or treat a depleted nutrient state that can lead to tissue breakdown, compromised immune function, and poor wound healing.
    • A variety of existing devices can be placed through the nares, mouth, stomach or small intestine to provide liquid nutrition, fluids, and medications directly to the GI tract.
  • Enteral access devices allow the short- and long-term delivery of nutrients and medications into the GI tract of patients unable maintain their needs with oral intake.
    • Enteral feeding tubes are primarily used in patients with intact GI tracts but are unable to maintain appropriate oral caloric intake and need short-term (e.g., NETs) or long-term (e.g., PEG, PEGJ, DPEJ) nutrition support.
      • In addition to providing enteral nutrition, enteral feeding devices may also be used to decompress the upper digestive tract in patients with obstruction not amenable to surgery or refractory gastroparesis.
  • The most common types of tubes include those placed through the nose, including nasogastric, nasoduodenal, and nasojejunal tubes, and those placed directly into the abdomen, such as a gastrostomy, gastrojejunostomy, or jejunostomy feeding tube.

The global enteral feeding devices market report provides market size ($million 2019 to 2029), market share, growth trends and forecast (CAGR%, 2023 to 2029). 

The market for enteral access feeding devices segmented by product [enteral feeding tubes [nasoenteric tubes, (nasogastric tubes, nasojejunal tubes, nasoduodenal tubes), oroenteric tubes, low profile gastrostomy tubes, enterostomy tubes [gastrostomy tubes (percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy, laparoscopic gastrostomy, open surgical gastrostomy)], jejunostomy tubes]], enteral feeding pumps, administration reservoir, giving sets, enteral syringes], application stages (adult, pediatrics), and geography.

  • Based on broader product categories, the enteral feeding pumps segment accounted for the largest share of the total enteral access feeding products market, and also anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate over the next few years.
    • Enteral feeding pumps are valuable treatment modalities for the management of acute and chronic illness. These tubes provide required nutrition support therapy for patients suffering from functional GI track, specially during conditions such as malnutrition and chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cancer and AIDS.
    • Some of the leading feeding pumps available in the market include Kangaroo (Covidien plc), Sentinel (Amsino International, Inc.), EnteraLite (Moog, Inc.), etc.
      • For example, according to the National Centre for Heath Statistics (NCHS) Home Survey, approximately 30,700 patients in long-term care facilities are on home enteral nutrition and receive pump feeding every year.
  • The enteral feeding tubes segment ranked second in terms of revenue share of the global enteral access feeding products market, driven by increasing preference of patients to use enteral feeding tubes due to ease of administrating nutrition and home-based enteral therapy.
    • The nasoenteric, enterostomy, oroenteric tubes and low profile gastrostomy tubes are the most widely used in the market.
      • The NCHS estimated that 245,000 hospitals prefer using tube feeding for patients; around 15% were used for children and newborns. Similarly, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 15 million babies are born preterm and the number is rising every year.
