Enteral Feeding Devices: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 25, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – Enteral nutrition is considered the first choice for patients with a functional gastrointestinal tract, but who are unable to obtain sufficient nutrition through the oral route. Patients unable to consume orally due to chronic illnesses must rely on enteral feeding devices for their nutritional needs. Enteral feeding devices, comprising flexible tubes and pumps, are directly inserted into a patient’s stomach or parts of the small intestine to provide the required nutrition, hydration and medication. Enteral feeding devices have been playing an important and beneficial role in patients suffering from medical conditions such as gastrointestinal diseases, hypermetabolism, AIDS, organ system failure, cancer, diabetes and neurological diseases among others. Growth in the enteral feeding devices market worldwide is driven by the rising need for enteral support among the elderly population, specifically in markets such as the United States, Japan and Europe, along with the rising number of premature births.
Enteral Feeding Pumps are witnessing strong growth, supported by improvements in design and technology of feeding pumps in tune with the evolving needs of patients and healthcare providers. Rising incidences of chronic disease such as cancer and neurological diseases, not only among the aging population but also among the younger population have increased the need for reconstructive surgeries, chemotherapy and radiotherapy procedures, thereby fuelling demand for enteral feeding devices and products. The market for enteral feeding devices is also being driven by increasing use of the devices in home care settings for patients with malnutrition or chronic illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, and AIDS. Technological advancements focused on the development of lighter and simpler enteral feeding devices such as tubes and pumps, and the rise in demand for such devices are anticipated to drive market growth over the coming years.
As stated by the new market research report on Enteral Feeding Devices, Europe represents the largest market worldwide, followed by the United States. Rising awareness about the advantages of enteral nutrition and the increase in the region’s geriatric population are contributing towards the demand growth in the region. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 7.5% over the analysis period. The region offers huge untapped potential for growth given the relatively low product penetration rates in countries such as India and China. Rising disposable incomes, increased spending on healthcare and improving standards of living represent key factors that are anticipated to fuel growth in developing markets of Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe and Latin America.
