Enteral Feeding Devices Market Overview:
Enteral feeding is referred to a nutritional therapy where nutrients are supplied directly to the gastrointestinal tract. The enteral feeding therapy is apt for patients who are unable to get adequate nutrients supplied directly into their systems through eating or drinking or are unable to consume food by mouth. Enteral feeding devices aid in the deliverance of medications and nutrients directly in the stomach, jejunum, duodenum, through either the nose, mouth or the direct percutaneous route.
The Enteral Feeding Devices Market is likely to ascend at the CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period, as per the report launched by Market Research Future (MRFR). Different factors contributing to the ascension of the global enteral feeding devices market include increasing prevalence of the geriatric population, along with the rising incidence of chronic diseases across the globe. For instance, as per the data released by the World Health Organization, the aging populace is bound to hit 2 billion in 2050, from 962.3 million at the beginning of the assessment period. A rising shift from parenteral to enteral nutrition and an upsurge in preterm/ premature births has driven the global enteral feeding devices market. Alternatively, complications associated with enteral feeding devices such as inadvertent dislodgement of tubes and strict reimbursement policies are posing as major hindrances in the market growth over the forecast period.
Some of the prominent players in the enteral feeding devices market, as profiled in the MRFR report include Medtronic plc, Cook Medical, B. Braun Melsungen AG, Abbott Laboratories, Boston Scientific Corporation, Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD), Fresenius Kabi AG, Danone Nutricia, Nestlé, CONMED Corporation, Moog, Inc., Halyard Health, Inc., and Vygon SA.
