Global Feeding Tubes Market

Global Feeding Tubes Market Is Expected to Be Nourished by Rising Prevalence of Chronic Diseases

Feeding tubes are medical devices that are used for delivering liquid food or medication directly into the stomach, duodenum, or jejunum of patients who are unable to consume orally. Feeding tubes find widespread adoption in hospital settings for providing nutrition to critically ill patients, preterm babies, and those recovering from surgery or trauma. Various types of feeding tubes available in the market include nasogastric tubes, nasojejunal tubes, percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tubes, and radiologically inserted gastrostomy tubes. Nasogastric tubes are commonly used for short-term feeding, while gastrostomy tubes provide long-term access for nutrition in patients suffering from chronic conditions or neurological disorders.

The global feeding tubes market was valued at US$ 6.34 billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by CoherentMI.

Market Dynamics:

The rising prevalence of chronic diseases that impair swallowing capabilities such as cancer, neurological disorders, and gastrointestinal diseases is expected to drive the demand for feeding tubes over the forecast period. As per the statistics by the World Health Organization, cancer burden is estimated to grow to 27 million new cancer cases and 16.3 million cancer deaths by 2040. Similarly, the Alzheimer’s Disease International report states the number of people living with dementia is estimated to reach 152 million by 2050. The increasing availability of home enteral nutrition therapies and support groups is offering caregivers confidence to provide nutrition via feeding tubes at home, which is further fueling the market growth. Moreover, continuous technological innovations are leading to the development of advanced feeding device platforms integrated with safety features and controllers to facilitate management of nutrition delivery. This is anticipated to boost the acceptance of feeding tubes among patients and caregivers.

Segment Analysis

The global feeding tubes market is dominated by the enterogastric feeding tubes segment which holds a share of over 50% of the market. Enterogastric feeding tubes are designed to provide nutrition directly into the stomach or small intestine when oral feeding is not possible or inadequate. They are widely used for patients who are unable to eat normally due to medical conditions like cancer, neurological disorders, gastrointestinal diseases etc. This segment is dominating as enteral feeding through gastric or jejunal routes is considered safer and associated with fewer complications compared to parenteral routes of nutritional administration.
