Global Breast Pump Market 2016-2020

About the Breast Pump Market

Breast pumps are devices used to suction milk from the breasts of lactating mothers and store it in a container to provide a continuous supply of breast milk for feeding their infants as and when required. For instance, when the mothers are not able to feed directly or are away for work, the stored milk can be fed to the infant by the caretakers. Breast pumps assist in triggering the milk ejection response from lactating mothers by creating a seal around the nipple and applying and releasing pressure.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global breast pump market to grow at a CAGR of 10.16% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Breast Pump Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global breast pump market: Ameda, Hygeia Medical, Lansinoh, Medela, and Philips Avent.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bailey Medical Engineering, Chicco, Evenflo Feeding, Freemie (Dao Health), Handi-Craft, Linco Baby Merchandise Works, MAM, Mayborn, Nuby, NUK USA, Pigeon, Spectra Baby, and Whittlestone.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend which is positively impacting the market is technological advances. Breast pumps have undergone significant technological advances over the years, becoming a boon for both infants and mothers. The earlier breast pumps were manual, often ineffective, single use, and expensive. This led to a high amount of investment in the R&D of these pumps to build technically advanced solutions and address the issues related to the existing pumps. A key development in the evolution of breast pumps is the introduction of double electric breast pumps, which has made it possible for women to express their milk many times on a daily basis and reduces the average time required during a pumping session.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the rising number of single-parent and nuclear families. Of all the types of single-parent families, the most common type is the one that consists of a mother and her biological children. According to the US Census Bureau, in 2014, 83% of about 12 million single-parent families in the US were headed by single mothers as compared to 17% by single fathers. Since the mothers have to work to take care of the family expenditures, they have to rely on products such as breast pumps. These devices help them cater to the basic needs of the baby when they are away at work.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is the availability of alternatives to breast milk.
