Global Enteral Feeding Formulas Market: Snapshot

Enteral feeding implies a direct method of artificially inserting nutrients and supplements into the GI tract. All forms of tube feeding methods, including gastronomy, nasojejunal, nasogastric, and orogastric, are considered to be a part of enteral feeding methods. In most circumstances, children are in a greater need of enteral feeding due to several medical issues that render them to ingest foods in a natural manner. These reasons can include impaired swallowing, structural anomalies or abnormalities in the mouth or the esophagus, anorexia or other eating disorders, chronic illnesses, primary disease management, growth in overall bodily nutrient needs, or congenital abnormalities. Enteral feeding essentially stents the esophagus, allowing the administration of foods, nutrients, and supplements to the stomach by bypassing the mouth and the esophagus. Conversely, it also allows for a free passage for draining the contents in a stomach should the need arise.

Enteral feeding is a growing requirement among the rising geriatric population, and a lot of players providing enteral feeding formulas are accepting this change in order to grow in profitability.

Various types of enteral feeding formulas are being commercially sold across key regions, which include isolated nutrient sources, formulas for diabetics, and formulas high in fiber.
