Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is advent of electric breastfeeding pumps. The global breastfeeding supplies market including breastfeeding pump market is registering an increase in the demand for electric breastfeeding pumps, owing to the increasing need, particularly by working women. Working mothers, who are extremely conscious about the nutritional needs of their babies and do not want to compromise on the growth and development, want to feed the babies breast milk.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand due to twins, triplets, or more infants. When a mother gives birth to twins or more infants, it is difficult for her to manage both the babies and feed them at the same time. In such cases, the mother can preserve their breast milk in a breast pump, which allows both the children to have milk whenever required. For example, any of the family members could feed one of the babies with the help of stored milk while the mother could breastfeed the other baby. This would give the mother enough time to form milk in the body and meet the needs of the babies.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is risk of contamination and improper sterilization of breastfeeding supplies. According to the National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCIB) when breast milk is collected in storage materials of breast pumps, it often gets contaminated with bacteria. These storage materials need to be washed and sterilized from time to time. This is because these bacteria are not healthy for children to consume and can cause a lot of health issues. Therefore, storage bottles need to be sterilized to prevent bacteria to avoid contamination in milk. This factor prevents many parents from using breast pumps and affects the sales and market growth of breast pumps.
