Increasing geriatric population in developed countries and rising cases of malnutrition are fueling the global medical nutrition market

An increasing aging population is now recognized as a global issue of importance. Aging population is increasing in almost all the countries across the world. Furthermore, the geriatric population is more prone to age-related diseases such as nervous disorders, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, and organ system failure. Such patients suffer from restrictive food ingestion and require parenteral nutrition feeding to maintain their nutritional levels. Around two thirds of the general hospital beds are used by the geriatric population aged over 65 years, while people over 75 years have to stay for a longer period of time in hospitals. The burden of geriatric population affects the nutrition balance and consequently the use of parenteral nutrition has been increased since the last few years. A rising use of home parenteral nutrition therapy by the geriatric population with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cancer and AIDS is anticipated to boost the growth of the global medical nutrition market.

Increasing cases of malnutrition due to rapid spread of chronic diseases is expected to drive the global medical nutrition market. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the one of the major causes of disability. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), COPD is considered to be one of the top causes of death worldwide and the numbers are expected to be increasing by the day. COPD is expected to be responsible for the death of 3 Mn patients in 2015 globally. Malnutrition is considered to be one of the common problems in COPD patients who require nutritional support for survival.

The R&D pipeline of leading companies developing novel parenteral nutrition drugs is experiencing unprecedented growth with increasing investments. Companies operating in the global medical nutrition market strive to develop advanced or standard nutritional products that safely and sufficiently satisfy the nutrition requirements of patients in different clinical conditions. Several companies have successfully received regulatory approvals for novel and effective parenteral nutrition drugs in the past few years.

Side effects or complications related to parenteral nutrition products

Parenteral administration demands regular assessment and monitoring in order to avoid complications or side effects. Inappropriate usage of this therapy maximizes the potential risk of adverse events such as re-feeding syndrome, particulate contamination, catheter infections, and liver dysfunction to the patients undergoing the therapy. Catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) is considered one of the most serious, costly, and frequent complications of parenteral nutrition among patients. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), thousands of deaths occur due to catheter-related bloodstream infections every year in the U.S. In this regard, the U.S. government spends billions of dollars to prevent the spread of this infection every year.

An article published by the American Society for Nutrition in 2014 also indicated that long-term parenteral nutrition therapy significantly increases the risk of liver disease and metabolic complications in patients. A study published by University Health Network also suggested that metabolic bone diseases is a significant complication in patients receiving long-term home parenteral nutrition. Moreover, problems such as allergic reactions, shortness of breath, unexplained weight gain, muscle pain, weakness, and loss of appetite are more common among patients undergoing parenteral nutrition therapy. These complications/side effects are expected to restrain revenue growth of the global medical nutrition market.
