Posted by rohan on November 2nd, 2017

The North America Enteral Feeding Formulas Market was worth USD 880 million in 2016 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 7.8%, to reach USD 1.29 billion by 2021. A growing number of hospitals and ambulatory care services are embracing enteral nutrition as an effective system of clinical nutrition.

Enteral nutrition, or commonly referred to as “tube feeding”, is a liquid formula providing macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins, and fats), micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), and water, all components necessary for sustaining life.  Enteral nutrition formulas are supplied to a patient by way of a tube either through the nose, ending in the stomach or intestines (used for short-term needs), or a tube surgically placed directly into the stomach or small intestines (used for long-term needs).

The North America enteral feeding formulas market owing to rise in number of chronic disease patients, rapid aging population and surging prevalence of preterm birth, the market is projected to grow during the forecast period. However, factors such as complications associated with enteral nutrition, patient safety risks, and the occurrence of feeding and medication errors are expected to restrain the growth of the enteral feeding formulas market to a certain extent.

On the basis of product, the market is segmented into standard and disease-specific formulas. The standard formulas segment is further segmented into polymeric formulas and monomeric formulas.
