Hyderabad, Jan. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Patients with COVID-19 who were very ill had lower nutrient absorption due to the disruption of the normal intestinal mucosa. They often had high levels of inflammation, stress and catabolism, as well as a significant increase in their need for protein and calories. Immediate enteral nutrition support and provision of adequate nutrients were essential to prevent malnutrition in these patients. The American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN), worldwide, recommended starting enteral nutrition in patients within 24–36 hours of intubation and placement by hospital staff across all hospitals. This trend will continue to grow at a CAGR of 6.50% during 2022-2027.
With the demand for enteral nutrition for critically ill patients and premature deaths, the market for enteral nutrition equipment is expected to increase. The use of tubes for feeding dates back to the sixteenth century, but significant breakthroughs in formula making and the use of pumps for both intermittent and continuous tube feeding were made in the twentieth century. Over the past few decades, this development has expanded the prevalence of EN in both inpatient nutrition assistance and home enteral nutrition (HEN).
In 2021, North America was the largest market for enteral feeding devices with a market share of 40.09%. The United States, United Kingdom, France, Brazil, Russia, Germany, and Japan constitute the largest enteral feeding equipment markets. However, the increasing burden of chronic diseases leading to an increased demand for enteral feeding devices and also increasing malnutrition in China and India will prove to be major opportunities, as predicted by Mordor Intelligence.
“Although ambulatory peristaltic pumps, which enabled portable feeding using backpacks and eliminated the need for users to be tethered to an IV pole, were introduced more than 30 years ago in medical nutrition, very little innovation has occurred since en. further promote mobility. Many people who use infusion pumps are on the move, so creative solutions that enable users to continue active physical and social lives while feeding are likely to reduce pressure on both users and carers and improve quality of life.”
According to a 2022 update from the International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD), 10 to 15% of the population is affected by irritable bowel syndrome worldwide. Likewise, according to research by Crohn’s & Colitis UK in 2022, 1 in every 123 people in the UK has ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease. In the UK, this equates to a total of close to 500,000 people who have IBD. Since these diseases are often associated with the progressive development of malnutrition, these statistics indicate that the demand for enteral feeding devices is expected to increase over the coming years. In February 2021, Amsino International Inc. approved US FDA for its Puggle Enteral Feeding Pump and Set.
The need for additional devices or expensive equipment to facilitate placement has been eliminated due to technological advancements in enteral feeding systems, which have also reduced physician hands-on time. The characteristic shapes help the device to avoid kinking and migration into the stomach. Internal bumpers made of rigid core silicone hold the tubes in place more securely than conventional soft bumpers which are designed to be removed with the tube.
Furthermore, the expanding sciences of metabolomics and proteomics have the ability to determine nutritional status, modify the nutrient mix appropriately, and track development through the various stages of acute illness. According to recent data, such improved precision can be successfully included in severity of disease indices such as the Sequential Organ Failure Assessment Score.
This will create opportunities for start-ups and existing players to take advantage of growth opportunities enteral feeding formulas and enteral feeding tubes
The possibilities can be seen through increasing technological advances. In May 2021, QMD reported the addition of Nasogastric Tubes to its Degania Enteral Feeding Product Portfolio. A new feeding tube navigation system for precise enteral tube placement in adult patients has been developed by Israel-based ENvizion Medical to address the drawbacks of blind insertions and radiography-based adjuvant methods. In April 2022, Fresenius Kabi also launched a new product app for enteral nutrition. The Enteral Nutrition Product App makes it easier for the patient to access detailed product information and includes a quick comparison tool to compare nutritional values with reference nutrient intakes.
