Manual and electric/battery-powered pumps are the two product variants currently available in the breast pump market. Electric breast pumps are viewed by customers as a viable option against manual variants. Ease of use and better efficiency are the prime factors that attract customers to opt for electric/battery-powered breast pumps. Nursing mothers that are returning to work or feeding twins may also influence a preference for electric pumps since electric pumps efficiently extract more milk in a quick period and are comfortable for multiple uses.

Customized suction mechanisms, faster suction, double pumping, and adjustable suction levels are some significant features that attract customers to buy more expensive electric breast pumps.Open and closed systems are the two technology-based product variants for breast pumps. Between the two, closed system breast pumps are largely preferred among users and hospitals.

Closed systems have a barrier between the milk collector and the pump, thus preventing microbial contamination. These systems, hence, can also be used by multiple users with their collection kits. On the other hand, complete sterilization of open systems though possible is tedious as the process involves the dismantling of parts, and some parts of the pump systems are impossible to be completely sanitized. Though there is rarely any documented adverse event of contamination from the use of open system breast pumps, the awareness about the associated risks and availability of safer product options plays a critical role in the high demand for closed system breast pumps. 

North America is the largest market for breast pumps market, due to higher awareness, availability of wide product options, and better reimbursement. Care providers and peers play a significant role in determining the purchase pattern for breast pumps in North American and Europe markets. Emerging markets of Asia-Pacific and the Middle East, and Africa are rapidly catching up with the trends in developed markets. They are anticipated to register the fastest market growth rate during the forecast period. Some of the prominent national markets in the global breast pump market are U.S., U.K., Germany, Japan, Malaysia, Australia, and major countries of Western Europe.
