As per the product type, there are two types of breastfeeding pumps available in the market, namely open or closed systems. In open pumps, there is no barrier between the milk pump and the container where the milk is stored. However, in closed pumps, there is a barrier present in the device. This barrier in the closed breast pumps helps in maintaining the quality of the milk and prevents the exposure of breast milk to outside air, thereby preventing contamination. Also, it becomes difficult to clean the milk particles stuck in the tube of the open type of breast milk pumps, which becomes difficult to clean. This is not the case in closed type of breast milk pumps and so they have become more popular in the market.
Breastfeeding Accessories Market: Restraints
The amount of investment required to introduce new devices to the breastfeeding accessories market is high and new products have to go through a lengthy FDA approval process. This may hamper new players in the market. In addition, there is a growing debate on the unnecessary use of breastfeeding accessories and this may also possibly act as a restraining factor.
