Complicated Operating Mechanism of Manual Breast Pumps Lowers their Demand

Currently, the market players manufacture four major types of breast pumps: double electric breast pumps, manual pumps, single electric breast pumps, and hospital grade breast pumps. The efficient pumping capacity and the economic nature of double electric breast pumps have led to their increased demand in the market. On the other hand, manual breast pumps are anticipated to register the lowest demand in the near future. “The complicated operating mechanism of the manual breast pumps has made it a low preferred choice among consumers,” states TMR.

Rise in Female Workforce to Support Purchase of Breast Pumps

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 79% of the infants were breastfed across the U.S. in 2011. The growing awareness about breastfeeding, coupled with the increased acceptance of breast pumps has propelled the growth of the global breast pumps market. TMR identifies that increase in disposable income and the rise in female workforce have further augmented the growth of this market. “The decision to purchase breast pumps is highly influenced by different healthcare professionals such as gynecologists, mid wives, pediatricians, and certified lactation consultants,” a TMR analyst states.

Risk of Contamination is a Major Hiccup in the Adoption of Breast Pumps

These pumps are highly recommended under certain conditions such as premature birth, flat or inverted nipples, and breast engorgement. The availability of technologically advanced breast pumps and favorable reimbursement policies, especially in the developed nations have supported the market’s growth. However, the risks of contamination and high prices of breast pumps will play spoilsport in the growth of the market in the near future. The overall breast pumps market has a significant potential to grow across the emerging markets.
