Breast pump devices enable women to express breast milk and store it for later use. These are especially useful for working mothers nursing a newborn. Breast pumps gaining eligibility for reimbursement under the Affordable Care Act is a key trend promoting its adoption in the U.S. Working mothers usually prefer automatic electronic breast pumps. These automatic breast pumps have adjustable suction level and variable cycling time, which offers enhanced comfort to the use. Double pumps help reduce pumping time as they drain both breasts simultaneously and more effectively.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), around 57% of women were part of the U.S. workforce in 2015. Furthermore, the DOL projects that by 2024, women in the age group of 25 to 34 years would constitute the major share of employed women in the U.S. On the contrary, emerging economies such as India have witnessed a decline in the female workforce from 35% in 1990 to 27% in 2014 (as per the World Bank Statistics). This is mainly attributed to cultural and societal factors and dearth of suitable jobs opportunities close to place of residence.
Increasing awareness and favorable reimbursement policies are augmenting market growth. Growing number of women in the workforce is a major factor driving demand for breast pumps. Electric breast pumps which can express more milk in a shorter time are most popular among consumers in developed economies such as the U.S. and countries in Western Europe. However, the device is not portable, which makes it rather cumbersome to use for women looking for an on-the-go solution.
