Report Overview

The global nursing products market size was valued at USD 4.4 billion in 2020 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 8.1% from 2021 to 2028.

Nursing products make breastfeeding easier and more comfortable for new mothers. In addition, products such as nipple creams, nursing pillows, and nursing stations, among others, are essential items in case new mothers encounter challenges with breastfeeding. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted supply chain networks across the globe. The supply chain plays a vital role in making essential supplies available wherever they are required.

The pandemic tested the resilience and flexibility of manufacturers and suppliers in the beginning phase to maintain essential operations.
