  • Report Description
  • Summary

Enteral feeding is a well-established practice across pediatric and adult populations, to enhance nutritional intake and prevent malnutrition. Enteral sustaining has advanced altogether since its origination. These devices have received increased interest in recent years as these devices are used across hospital and home settings. There is immense advancement in the four areas of enteral feed pumps including the minimization of errors allied with misconnection of tube, the accurate and consistent delivery of formula, the impact of continuous feed delivery itself via an enteral feed pump coupled with the  chemical composition of the casing used in enteral feed pump manufacturing. . 

Enteral Feeding Devices Market Dynamics

The Germany enteral feeding devices market has evolved significantly owing to various technological advancements, such as programming and safety features in feeding pumps as well as user-friendly and portable feeding pumps. Germany’s medical technology and pharmaceuticals market is the largest in Europe. According to Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, in 2016, the country spent USD 29 billion on health technology to tackle rising demand due to an aging population, increasing incidence of chronic disease, and rising demand for ambulatory and preventive health care. With artificial nutrition witnessing significant changes and improvements, in terms of usage and adoption, there is a paradigm shift to enteral nutrition (EN) with tube feeding from parenteral nutrition market (PN). The growing preference for enteral feeding in several post-operative situations is expected to grow, thereby increasing the usage of tube feeding in several applications.


Enteral Feeding Devices Market Segmental Overview

The report analyses the global enteral feeding devices market based on product, age group, application, end user and geography.
