Parenteral nutrition (PN) can be explained as the intravenous administration of nutritional solutions of carbohydrates, lipid emulsions, amino acids, vitamins, and trace elements. Parenteral nutrition is needed for patients that are unable to take adequate nutrition via the gastrointestinal tract on a regular basis. In addition, PN is needed for patients in which oral or enteral intake of nutrition supplements is not viable as well.

KGaA, and Baxter International, Inc., who collectively held 71% of the global parenteral nutrition market, are focusing on improving their line of products, reports Transparency Market Research. The trend of winning approvals for their new formulations from concerned authorities is also helping them gain a significant footprint in the market, observes TMR.

The focal point of parenteral nutrition is to provide chronically ill patients adequate nutritional support. The high incidence of chronic conditions such as cancer, gastro-intestinal disorders, ischemic bowel disease, diabetic complications, and Crohn’s disease amongst others is propelling the demand for parenteral nutrition. As this form of oral nutritional supplement becomes the only way of treating the immobilized patient, the demand for these nutrients is witnessing a phenomenal rise.
According to the World Health Organization about 11% of the global burden of disease is due to malnutrition and is considered to be a huge risk to human life. As this number will increase in the coming years citing issues of political unrest, food security, and changing environmental conditions, the demand for parenteral nutrition will remain persistent.
The global parenteral nutrition market faces the huge risk of health complications due to poor monitoring. The American Society for Nutrition also stated that prolonged usage of parenteral nutrition therapy can lead to metabolic complications and liver diseases. Furthermore, shortness of breath, allergic reactions, muscle pain, and unexplained weight gain are also hampering the growth of this market.
However, a large patient pool in emerging economies of China, Brazil, India, and Brazil offer a tremendous scope for growth to the parenteral nutrition market. Furthermore increasing investment by leading players in the developing regions of Asia Pacific and Latin America to increase production of parenteral nutrition is also expected to create large opportunities to register a high growth.
