The value of the enteral feeding pump increased in 2018, and growth is expected to continue over the forecast period, driven by increasing unit sales and moderated by ASP depreciation. The majority of unit sales consisted of portable devices sold into homecare and hospital markets and mainly indicated for continuous feeding.

Abstract
Enteral feeding devices are used to feed individuals who are unable to do so themselves, whether from neurological dysfunction or from a condition that affects their ability to absorb nutrients from normal food. The process of enteral feeding is usually accomplished by the combination of a feeding pump and a piece of tubing that terminates in the patient’s stomach or small intestine. The most common form of short-term enteral feeding involves a tube being inserted through the nostril, down the esophagus and into the stomach.
