The Global Enteral Feeding Devices Market was valued at USD 2.9 Bn in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 4.8 Bn by 2027, with a growing CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period.
Global Enteral Feeding Devices Market Definition
Enteral feeding devices are the medical devices that are used to intake nutrition, medication, or food via external devices such as tubes, pumps, syringes from mouth to the gastrointestinal tract. These devices are used for the people who are not able to consume food by mouth or not able to swallow safely. These enteral feeding devices are usually recommended to people suffering from chronic illness such as cancer, malnutrition, and gastrointestinal disorders. Enteral feeding devices are extensively used in OT, ICU, CCU, and severely ill patients at home.
Global Enteral Feeding Devices Market Dynamics
The driving factors influencing the global enteral feeding devices market include increasing rate of chronic diseases such as covid-19, HIV, cancer, and neurological diseases. For instance, according to the Globocan 2020, more than 19 Mn new cases were diagnosed with cancer across the globe. Rising prevalence of diseases is expected to generate the demand for the enteral feeding devices market during the forecast period. Similarly, up to 1.0 Bn people, one in six of the world’s population is diagnosed with neurological disorders such as epilepsy, dementia, alzheimer, and other brain injuries which require timely supply of the enteral nutrients and medication is expected to trigger the growth of the enteral feeding devices demand in the market across the globe during the forecast period. Furthermore, growing geriatric population and rising awareness regarding availability of enteral feeding devices options are expected to fuel the growth of the enteral feeding devices demand in the market during the forecast period. For instance, enteral feeding devices such as enteral feeding tubes by Nestle Health Sciences (Switzerland) includes (Compat DualPort, Compat StayPut, Compat Soft, Compat Gastrotube), and enteral feeding pumps include (Compat Go, Compat Ella, Compat Standard). Such rising development of enteral feeding devices is expected to boost the enteral feeding devices demand in the market during the forecast period.
On the contrary, complications associated with enteral feeding tubes such as tube clogs due to small bore of feeding tube or improper administration of nutrients and medications is expected to hinder the growth of enteral feeding devices demand during the forecast period.

Company Profiles and Competitive Intelligence
The key players operating in the enteral feeding devices market are:
Based on product, enteral feeding pump segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period due to increasing need for administering nutrients or food slowly to the patients over the extended period
Based on product, enteral feeding devices market is broadly segmented into giving sets, enteral feeding pumps, consumables, enteral syringes, and enteral feeding tubes. Enteral feeding pumps held largest market share in 2020 due to presence of large volume of patients in the critical care unit. Moreover, enteral feeding pump segment is expected to hold largest market share during the forecast period due to the several benefits offered by feeding pumps such as consistency flow of nutrients, safety, accuracy in delivering formula and higher acceptability.
Enteral feeding pumps have received the immense interest in the recent years in homecare and hospital settings. Moreover, ease of use to the parents and caregivers, effortless understanding of the feeding pumps, and harmless chemical composition of the enteral feeding pumps, proved to be an emerging requirement of the patient population. Such rising awareness regarding enteral feeding pumps and its benefits are expected to propel the growth of the enteral feeding devices demand in the market during the forecast period. For instance, in September 2020, Amsino International Inc. (US) received the approval from FDA for their PUGGEL Enteral Feeding pumps. This pump is expected to deliver nutrients and food to the needy patient of either infant age or adult who is not able to intake or swallow food by normal method. Rise in commercialization of the enteral feeding devices are expected to fuel the growth of this segment in the enteral feeding devices market during the forecast period.
Based on applications, oncology segment is expected to contribute highest market growth during the forecast period owing to rising prevalence of cancer diseases within population
Based on applications, enteral feeding devices market is segmented into diabetes, oncology, neurology, critical care, and gastroenterology. Oncology segment held largest market share in 2020 due to increasing burden of cancer cases across the globe. For instance, according to World Health Organization (WHO) 2020, cancer is categorised as a leading cause of deaths across the globe. More than ~10 Mn deaths are registered due to the cancer. Furthermore, gastrointestinal cancers accounted for about 26% of global cancer diseases burden and 35% of all cancer related deaths. This led to increase in digestive tumours mortality and morbidity.
Furthermore, Oncology segment is expected to hold largest market share during the forecast period due to need for continuous medication and nutrition monitoring required for the patients. Cancer patients cannot maintain their oral feeding routine and become prone to malnutrition. To avoid such cases and to provide ability of feeding food and essential nutrients to the patients, enteral feeding devices paves the way for such cases.
Based on region, North America is expected to hold largest market share during the forecast period due to growing prevalence of chronic diseases and rising presence of well-equipped clinics & hospitals
Based on region, North America accounted for highest market share in 2020 due to presence of large volume of patient population in this region. Moreover, North America is expected to hold maximum share in the market during the forecast period owing to increasing government support in terms of funding for R&D and well-established healthcare infrastructure. Moreover, increase in number of malnutrition cases, ever-growing geriatric population, and rising enteral feeding devices manufactures in this region is expected to leverage the growth of enteral feeding devices demand in the market during the forecast period. For instance, according to the US report of USDA’s latest Household Food Insecurity, it is expected that there will be more than 40 Mn people in this region to experience hunger due to lack of availability of nutrition awareness and ever rising diseases in this region.

COVID-19 Impact on the Enteral Feeding Devices Market Analysis
Covid-19 has created havoc for the global health system. COVID-19 has partially contributed to the growth of the enteral feeding devices market owing to rising covid infected cases and patient admission in the critical care units. SARS-CoV2 is expected to affect the respiratory, gastrointestinal tract of the patients which may affect the delivery of nutrition among the patients. According to the guidelines of European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism on nutrition take in critical patients, gastric enteral nutrition is being advised which is expected to deliver essential supplies with the help of pumps with 48 hours. This created emergency demand for the supply of enteral feeding devices across the globe. Thus, pandemic has increased the need for enteral feeding devices especially for OT, ICU, and CCU care units across the globe. This is expected to trigger the growth of enteral feeding devices market across the globe during the forecast period.
