The global enteral feeding formulas market is expected to reach over USD 7.5 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Key factors driving growth include increase in geriatric population, rise in chronic diseases, rising preterm births, and increasing demand for home care services.
The enteral feeding formulas market is expected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period, owing to a few benefits such as the preservation of gastrointestinal tract structure and its functioning, low-cost alternative to support the patient nutrition, and lowering of rate of infection.
According to the WHO, an estimated 15 million babies are born prematurely, which accounts for 1 in every 10 babies. Furthermore, nearly 1 million children die every year due to complications of preterm birth. The growing nutritional requirements for neonates, infants, and children are boosting the consumption of various enteral feeding products. Moreover, the children suffering from chronic disease conditions and severe malnutrition are expected to drive the use of specialized formulas over the forecast period.
Increase in aging population will have a major impact on the enteral feeding formulas market. The ageing population requires more focus to treat chronic diseases like osteoporosis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and others. According to Administration on Ageing, it is estimated that approximately 80% of people aged 65 and above have at least one chronic illness; as a result, the usage of various enteral feeding formulas is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period.
