The growth of this market is driven by the rising birth rates globally and the rapidly
growing world population. With changing lifestyles and an increase in the number of
working women, the consumer base for breast pumps is expanding and so is the demand for
these devices. Restructuring of the reimbursement policies, which requires insurance
companies to cover the cost of breastfeeding devices and lactation counseling, will also
help improve the uptake of breast pumps. Increasing disposable incomes are strengthening
the purchasing power of consumers and rising awareness about the benefits of breastfeeding
will further help fuel market growth during the forecast period 2012 to 2018.

Electric pumps market is the fastest growing market segment with a CAGR of 11.9%. The
preference for personal use electric pumps is expected to be the highest. In addition, the
battery-powered pumps segment was the largest market segment in 2011 and will continue to
be the leading segment till 2018, in terms of revenue.
