Global Feeding Tubes Market Driven By Rising Geriatric Population Is Poised To Exhibit Progressive Growth Over The Forecast Period

Feeding tubes are medical devices that enable delivery of liquid nutrition, hydration, or medications directly to the gastrointestinal tract when oral intake is not feasible or enough to meet nutritional needs. Feeding tubes are often required for preterm infants, critically ill patients, and those undergoing certain types of surgery which require a period of restricted oral intake. The global population is aging rapidly and the number of people aged 60 years and above is expected to reach nearly 2.1 billion by 2050. As aging is associated with increase in prevalence of chronic illnesses like cancer, neurological conditions, and gastrointestinal disorders often requiring tube feeding for nutritional support, the geriatric population base offers huge opportunities for growth of the feeding tubes market.

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 Key Trends

One of the key trends witnessed in the global feeding tubes market involves use of lower profile and low friction feeding tubes. Recent advancements have led to development of feeding tubes with low profiles facilitating easier placement. Feeding tubes equipped with internal bumpers and bolsters help prevent undesirable dislodgement. Moreover, enteral feeding tubes are now available coated with hydrophilic polymers that become slippery when hydrated, facilitating easier insertion while minimizing friction and potential for injury to delicate gastric or intestinal tissue during placement process. Such innovative product features are enhancing customer confidence and convenience of use, thereby driving increased adoption.
