Aging Population Provides a Major Consumer Pool for Enteral Feeding Devices
Given the anticipated demographic shift toward an aging global population, the prevalence of diseases and disorders that predominantly affect the elderly is set to increase. The global population is distinctively aging, with a steady increase in the population aged 60 years and above.
According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the elderly constituted 11.7% of the global population in 2013. Age-related conditions, such as diabetes, vascular disease, stroke, cancer, dementia, arthritis, osteoporosis, circulatory failure, and Parkinson’s disease, are on the rise, and this is promoting the growth of the enteral feeding devices market.
With a longer life expectancy and escalating demand from patients who expect functional lifestyles later in life, PMR expects continued growth in the enteral feeding devices market due to the need for treatment assisted with enteral feeding devices.

Increase in the Number of Chronic Diseases and Life Expectancy
Advancements in healthcare diagnostics and treatment techniques have substantially increased life expectancy for patients suffering from a number of chronic or serious diseases and conditions. According to the WHO, approximately 8.2 million people worldwide died of cancer in 2012 (WHO, 2014), which is boosting the patient pool for enteral feeding devices.
As reported, the current average time with percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy has been estimated to be 27.0 +/- 22.5 months for elderly patients, and is set to increase over the forecast period. Moreover, enteral feeding devices play an important role in palliative treatment in various oncology indications, which include HNC and esophageal cancer. Preterm births have declined in the US since the peak of 12.8% in 2006. Consequently, the growth of the pediatric enteral feeding devices market is expected to be positively impacted.

The Availability of Home Enteral Nutrition is Influencing the Enteral Feeding Devices Market
A shift in the enteral feeding devices market from hospital care to home enteral nutrition has been prominent and is on the rise. The rising costs of hospital stays have often made it necessary for clinicians involved in the treatment of patients who need nutritional support for long periods of time to encourage patients to adopt home enteral nutrition.
Several countries, such as France, Japan, Spain, and the UK, have established nutrition teams that take care of home enteral nutrition patients. Growth of the home enteral nutrition market is positively influencing the enteral feeding devices market, and this trend has been observed more in developed regions as compared to developing regions.

Technological Advancements, such as One-Step Button Placement, are boosting the Enteral Feeding Devices Market
Enteral feeding devices, such as gastrostomy buttons, also known as low-profile gastrostomy devices, have been steadily gaining popularity among G-tube users. They are ideal for children and active adult patients as the buttons lie flush to the patient’s skin rather than extending as a tube off of the body.
Despite the growing acceptance of enteral feeding devices, currently accepted procedures include the initial G-tube placement for a patient to be performed using a surgical G-tube or PEG device. Once the stoma has healed, the patient’s tube can be switched to a button device. These advancements are leading to better customer satisfaction, which is resulting in the growth of the enteral feeding devices market.
