Breastfeeding exclusively or in combination with pumping is recommended by all doctors globally for the first six months of a baby’s life. In addition, greater availability of hospital grade breast pumps used to collect breast milk for storage and sale in breast milk banks is fuelling the demand for suitable hospital grade breast pump products across the world. Human breast milk collection was first started in the 1930s. Since then, the importance of breast milk and awareness about donation to milk banks has increased remarkably. As per International Milk Genomics Consortium, in 2015, Brazil had around 217 human milk banks and around 166,848 women breast milk donors. Thus, increasing awareness about milk donation and increased number of human milk banks in developed and developing countries are expected to boost overall revenue growth of the global breast pumps market in future.
