A breast pump is a device for extracting milk from lactating mothers. It is greatly convenient, especially for working mothers. UNICEF estimated the global population of working women at about 830 million in 2013. Working women coupled with insufficient maternity leaves create demand for breast pumps. Rising birth rates in largely untapped regions will also trigger higher adoption of these devices.
Awareness regarding breastfeeding benefits for infants and mothers is rising. Breast pumps are used not only by working mothers but also lactating women at homes, hospitals, and lactating centers. Healthcare providers, governmental agencies, non-profit organizations, and some other establishments favor breastfeeding. The ‘Affordable Care Act’ in the U.S. offers insurance coverage for renting or buying breast pumps. These factors raise breastfeeding rates.
