The global wearable breast pump market size was estimated at USD 555.35 million in 2023 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.55% from 2024 to 2030. A worldwide surge in women’s employment rate is expected to increase the demand for wearable breast pumps. For instance, as per the Center for American Progress, in December 2022, more than 993,000 mothers were working in America and the labor force participation rate for women reached 77.0%.

U.S. Wearable Breast Pump Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The growing consumer awareness about wearable breast pumps, coupled with development in healthcare infrastructure in emerging economies is expected to positively impact the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, awareness initiatives by government organizations to feed babies with expressed breastmilk using breast pumps during the COVID-19 pandemic are expected to have a positive impact on the market. Thus, increased usage of wearable breast pumps in the wake of rising precautionary measures is anticipated to drive the market. For instance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecology (ACOG) recommend the separation of newborns from mothers for at least a week or more, to reduce exposure of newborns to COVID-19. This is expected to drive the market at a healthy rate during the forecast period.

Governments of various countries are encouraging mothers to breastfeed babies up to the age of 6 months. Moreover, many international agencies are arranging campaigns to raise awareness about breastfeeding. Various market players, such as Medela LLC, Laura & Co., Newell Brands, and Ameda, & universities, including Washington University and Fudan University, are raising awareness among women about breastfeeding and its benefits by arranging campaigns and providing informative magazines. These factors are expected to drive the market.

Various private and public companies provide insurance coverage for wearable breast pumps. For instance, Medela offers insurance coverage for its breast pump products and related accessories. Medela also rents hospital-grade breast pumps for ample duration to mothers who cannot afford to buy a new pump. Such factors are anticipated to drive the growth of the market in the U.S. Furthermore, the Affordable Care Act mandates that a mother should be provided with an electric/manual breast pump once the baby is born. These factors are expected to support market growth over the forecast period.

The increasing number of milk banks is anticipated to boost the demand for wearable breast pumps over the forecast period. For instance, as per the European Milk Bank Association as of 2021, there are 282 milk banks in the European region, with 18 more milk banks under development. In addition, as per the National Institute of Health (NIH), there were 222 milk banks in Brazil by March 2022.

The presence of various e-commerce sites offering wearable breast pumps drives the sales of the products. Product penetration through online networks is rapidly increasing, as it allows end users to compare and select suitable products based on their brand, type, price, and point of sales. Amazon, Bodily, and Haakaa are some of the notable e-commerce websites and companies that offer significant discounts, and prompt customer service on various breast pumps & breastfeeding accessories. Thus, easy availability of different wearable breast pumps on online platforms is expected to drive market growth in the coming years.

Impact of Regulations: Regulatory standards and requirements are essential in ensuring wearable breast pump safety and quality. These standards help build consumer trust in the products and ensure they are safe and effective. Manufacturers must comply with these requirements to obtain product certification or approval. This can sometimes act as a barrier to entry for new companies into the market. However, compliance with these regulatory standards can also lead to significant investments in research, development, and testing to meet the safety and performance requirements, ultimately resulting in better-quality products for consumers.

Level of M&A Activities: Companies are actively acquiring development-stage firms to broaden their service portfolios, catering to a larger patient base. Major companies may acquire smaller firms to strengthen their market position, expand product portfolios, or gain access to new technologies. In January 2023, International Biomedical announced the acquisition of Ameda, Inc. The company is expected to hire in Operations roles as it consolidates this acquisition and develops new growth initiatives.

Regional Expansion: The regional expansion strategy adopted by companies in the market is a smart move to capitalize on emerging opportunities and broaden their market presence. This approach involves establishing a stronger presence in key geographical areas through partnerships, acquisitions, and localized marketing strategies. By tailoring their products and services to meet regional healthcare needs, breast pump firms aim to enhance accessibility and responsiveness, ensuring a more comprehensive and effective market penetration. For instance, in January 2024, Annabella announced its seed funding of USD 8.5 million and its entrance into the U.S. breast pump market.Annabella has sold approximately 4,000 breast pumps in Israel since February 2023. This expansion demonstrates Annabella's product excellence, illustrated by its patented, FDA-cleared breast pump, which provides mothers with a product comparable to breastfeeding while emphasizing efficiency and comfort.

The seed funding is expected to be utilized to fuel next-generation product development and expand into the US market. Thus, regional expansion serves as a critical factor for industry leaders to tap into diverse markets, address specific healthcare demands, and ultimately drive sustained growth.
