The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Breast Pump Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global breast pump market size reached US$ 843 Million in 2021. A breast pump is a healthcare device used to extract milk from the breast of lactating mothers. It is used by women to breastfeed their infants at any convenient time. A breast pump prevents discomfort, averts the risk of breast infection and engorgement, relieves mastitis, aids in overcoming inverted or flat nipples and enables mothers to store milk for later use. Moreover, breast pumps are gaining prominence across the globe as doctors recommend them to women to stimulate milk supply when the baby is unable to suck milk.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
