Report Description

Breast Pump Market was valued at more than US$ 1,500 million in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10% over the forecast period (2021-2027).Breast -pumps are used by lactating mothers for extracting milk and to store it for future use. These devices are mostly adopted by working women so their babies can have mother’s milk while they are still at work. In some cases where the babies are weak, doctors recommend using breast pumps to stimulate the milk supply. Rapid technological advancements, such as double breast pumps help to eliminate fat content from milk.


Breast milk contains 86-88% of water, 0.5-2% of prebiotics, 0.2% of vitamins & minerals (vitamin A, C, D, E, riboflavin, Niacin; etc.), 1% proteins, 7% of carbohydrates, and 4% fats. These components are very essential for the healthy growth and development of the baby. Breast milk protects against allergies, sickness, diseases, infections, and obesity. Owing to the varied importance of breast milk doctors recommend mothers feed their babies in the early months.

Over the last 20 years, society has witnessed significant progress for women in the world of work and gender equality. With the increase in women’s labor force participation rate, women are seen higher posts along with the men. For instance, women held 20.6% of board director seats worldwide in 2020, a small increase from 20% in 2019. France, Germany, India, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, and South Korea are among the countries that have implemented quotas for women on boards of public companies.

According to The World Bank Data, the female force accounted for 39% of the population worldwide. This value is expected to increase in the coming years. The increase in the number of working women is expected to increase the demand for breast pumps over the forecast period.
