Is Clinical Nutrition Necessary Only in Geriatric Population?


According to the latest Arizton's market research report, the clinical nutrition market size reached around $51 billion in 2019, growing at a CAGR of over 8% during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Clinical Nutrition Market

The rate of hospitalization due to the COVID-19 pandemic was much higher among the geriatric population. Diabetes was one of the major risk factors for increased morbidity and mortality among people infected with the coronavirus. Variable glycaemic control, poor glycaemic legacy, the burden of end-organ damage, impaired, and altered immunity all contribute to poor clinical outcomes in people living with diabetes. Hence to ensure positive outcomes for patients infected with coronavirus requires maintaining the diabetic level and provided with clinical nutritional supplements. Thus, the spread of COVID-19 is anticipated to boost the market for clinical nutrition. The global clinical nutrition market is expected to witness a growth of 12% in 2020, due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
