Crohn’s disease, gastrointestinal disease due to trauma, bowel obstruction (BO), microscopic colitis, short bowel syndrome, and ulcerative colitis are a few gastrointestinal diseases. According to the article in Heathline, in 2021, around 40% of people across the world were affected by functional gastrointestinal disorder. According to Medscape, in developed countries, the most common cause of small-bowel obstruction (SBO) is intra-abdominal adhesions, accounting for ~65 to 75% of cases, followed by hernias. In contrast, in developing countries, SBO is primarily caused by hernias (30–40%), adhesions (about 30%), and tuberculosis (about 10%). According to the article published by World Journal of Emergency Surgery, bowel obstruction is an important cause of morbidity and mortality accounting for nearly 30,000 deaths and more than US$3 billion per year in direct medical costs. Bowel obstruction is responsible for ~15% of hospital admissions for acute abdominal pain in the US, and ~ 20% of cases need acute surgical care.

Crohn’s disease is a complex, long-lasting (chronic) disorder that primarily affects the digestive system. It is most common disease in North America and Western Europe and has a prevalence of 100 to 300 per 100,000 in these regions. According to Medline Plus, more than half a million in North American and Western European people are currently suffering from Crohn’s disease. Patients suffering from gastrointestinal disease are at an increased risk of nutritional deterioration due to fasting for the diagnostic tests, therapeutic dietary restriction, and appetite loss due to anorexia or altered nutritional requirement. Gastrointestinal disease patients cannot consume food orally. Therefore, enteral route is preferred to provide the required nutrients. A few brands that caters to gastroenterology disorders are Ensure, Ensure HN, Ensure Powder, Isocal, Lonalac Powder, Meritene, Meritene Powder, Osmolite, Osmolite HN, Portagen Powder, Sustacal, Sustagen Powder, and Travasorb.  Therefore, the growing prevalence of gastrointestinal diseases drives the growth of the enteral feeding formulas market


The growth of the enteral feeding formulas market is majorly attributed to the rising prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders and the increasing prevalence of cachexia. However, mechanical or enteral tube-related problems hamper the growth of the market. The usage of next-generation technology for proper enteral nutrition feeding is projected to offer lucrative opportunities for the growth of the enteral feeding formulas market during the forecast period.
