Drivers & Restraints-

Urgent Need to Feed Children with Chronic Illnesses will Favor Growth

Feeding tubes are gaining more traction from pediatrics. These are considered to be an essential alternative for children living with chronic illnesses. These tubes help them to easily ingest food. But, medical professionals often face various issues, such as tube placement errors during tube feeding. Therefore, several companies present in the North America feeding tubes industry are conducting research and development activities to introduce innovative feeding tube systems.

However, rising number of product recalls on account of manufacturing defects may hamper the North America feeding tubes market growth in the upcoming years. For instance, in July 2020, the U.S. FDA recalled Kentec Medical, Inc.’s Ameritus Medical Products ENFit polyurethane and silicone feeding tubes because of the possibility of breakage or fracture. It would have caused serious health hazards.
