Rising population of hospitalized patients with protein-energy undernutrition is a key factor fueling the demand for nutrition support services. Advances in clinical treatment pathways for managing various problems associated with nutritional therapy are creating new avenues in the market. Improving clinical indications for nutritional support in a range of diseases such as Short-Bowel Syndrome, liver diseases, and Enterocutaneous Fistulas have created favorable dynamics for the market.

Nutrition therapy supports nutrition counselling and education in various healthcare facilities.

The adequate quality and quantity of food is important to prevent people from illness. During the time of illness, generally people cannot eat and the nutrients that are necessary for the adequate functioning of the body are not fulfilled. The goal of the nutrition support service is to improve the patient life by minimizing infection and improving patient outcome

If the person is suffering from any stomach or bowel disease and has to undergo surgery to remove some or all parts of the body necessary for nutrition supply, then the nutrition is to be provided by some other means. Nutrition is provided either by enteral nutrition or parenteral nutrition. When the nutrition is provided by feeding tube it is known as enteral nutrition, the enteral nutrition is thicker than parenteral nutrition. When the nutrition is provided by intravenous tube (catheter) directly into the vein, it is known as parenteral nutrition. The mixture contains all the necessary nutrition such as vitamins, minerals, fats, protein, sugar and others.  The nutrition support services market demands are increasing among end users due to rise in accidents, chronic diseases and sedentary lifestyle that follows diseases and disorders

The nutrition support services includes professionals such as physicians, dietitians, professional nurses or any other private nutrition support service team. The person suffering from HIV is more at risk for malfunction due to high risk of chronic infection and anaemia.

Nutrition support services are provided to people in variety of settings such as hospitals, outpatient clinics, private practices, and others for those patients who are not able to eat adequately when provided a normal diet.
