Growing Popularity of Breastfeeding Fuelling the Adoption of Breast Pump Products Globally
Breastfeeding exclusively or in combination with pumping is recommended by all doctors globally for the first six months of a baby’s life. In addition, greater availability of hospital grade breast pumps and breastfeeding accessories are used to collect breast milk for storage and sale in breast milk banks is fuelling the demand for suitable hospital grade breast pump products across the world. Human breast milk collection was first started in the 1930s. Since then, the importance of breast milk and awareness about donation to milk banks has increased remarkably. As per International Milk Genomics Consortium, in 2015, Brazil had around 217 human milk banks and around 166,848 women breast milk donors. Thus, increasing awareness about milk donation and increased number of human milk banks in developed and developing countries are expected to boost overall revenue growth of the global breast pumps market in future.
Obamacare, a Blessing for Breast Pump Manufacturing Companies
In the U.S., breast pump manufacturer Medela noticed a 34% increase in sales over two years, i.e. between 2014 and 2015 after the Affordable Care Act was initiated and put into effect. Breast pump manufacturers have noted that the company’s butter-yellow breast pumps are now found in most lactation rooms in companies and institutions and enjoy widest institutional insurance coverage. Mandatory coverage of breast pumps under insurance schemes has fuelled the adoption of breast pumps among women from various socio economic strata. Medela has noted that more moms have access to pumps as breast pumps are now covered under insurance. This is also contributing to breast pump manufacturers’ brand equity.
Engorgement Condition Leads to Immediate Demand for Breast Pump Products
Breast pump is an immediate requirement in case of the engorgement condition. The engorgement condition leads to pain in breast because of excessive milk production. This is common during the first three days after a baby born. If this condition continues for several days, it leads to mastitis and milk flow reduces. To prevent engorgement condition, removal of excessive milk using breast pump is the only option. The hand expression method and breast pumps are the only two methods to elicit excessive milk from breasts in a healthy way. Engorgement is thus one of the primary factors expected to drive the demand for breast pump products over the forecast period.
Superior Quality of Alternative Lactation Methods Could Deter the Growth of the Breast Pump Market
Revenue from breast pump market is expected to falter due to the availability of other suitable lactation inducing remedies. For example, galactogogues are medications used to induce milk production in a mother who is unable to produce sufficient amount of breast milk. Further, synthetic drugs, such as domperidone, metoclopramide and natural herbal ingredients, which are known to increase breast milk production could potentially deter revenue growth of the breast pump market.
Shift Towards Introduction of Portable Device or ‘Smart Breast Pumps’ to Boost Breast Pump Adoption
Of late, breast pump manufacturers have been focusing on introducing improved, more efficient, lightweight and portable breast pumps, both in healthcare facilities and homecare settings. These breast pump products target the affluent consumer segment and the revenue derived from this segment is anticipated to witness a surge in market share globally by 2026. Currently, majority of these breast pump products are used by consumers in North America and Europe where availability of internet is seamless and disposable income levels are high. Most smart breast pump products can be app-based, which helps mothers to keep track of their pumping schedule closely. These advanced product features will help boost the market revenue over the forecast period.
Product Innovation and Sales Management are Key Success Factors in Breast Pump Market
Major breast pump manufacturers are targeting alternative end users, such as homecare settings and healthcare facilities, to further strengthen their market presence globally. Companies are focusing on innovations in the designs of breast pump products to make them more natural to a baby’s natural sucking pattern. Majority of these companies are headquartered in North America and Europe. Small scale companies are making significant investments in R&D to improve their product designing and enhance their presence in the global market. Low cost production of breast pump products will substantially help these players to increase their market revenue share.
A breast pump is a medical device used to elicit breast milk from lactating women. Breast pump products are available in two models: manual breast pumps and electrical breast pumps.
