Global Breastfeeding Supplies Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization had declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.

COVID-19 can affect the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting production and demand of drugs, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries, such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E., Egypt, and others, are facing problems with regards to the transportation of drugs from one place to another.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the global breastfeeding supplies market during the pandemic as it had led to greater impact on the manpower issues, demand and supply, government regulations and transportation issues.

  • Manpower (Labor issues): Lockdowns were unplanned, which had caused a major staff shortage.
  • Demand and supply: During this pandemic, companies had started facing huge demand for essential commodities. This led to a great challenge for the supply chain department.
  • Government Regulations: It was important to know the reaction of the government rules and regulations which disturbed the supply chain and also to check whether alternative suppliers were available.
  • Maintaining safety: Another important challenge included the safety of food items and also the safety of people involved in transportation. It was important to check the safety while delivering the essentials and applications of disinfectants for surfaces and vehicles.

Thus covid-19 had a negative impact on the global breastfeeding supplies market during the pandemic.

Breastfeeding supplies are the apparatus used for removing breast milk from breast for the newborn babies. They are used for taking out the milk from breast. Breastfeeding supplies include breast pumps, feeding bottles, and accessories. These supplies are useful for working women, women who are at shorter maternity period, and in cases of multiple births. They help to provide the nutrition needs to babies of working women who do not want to compromise on their growth and development. A breast pump emulates a nursing baby by mimicking their natural suckling pattern. As infants nurse, they don't apply constant pressure to the breast. The average baby sucks about 50 to 90 times per minute and slows down once milk is released. An electric breast pump will create this cycle of suction and release by producing one pull per second to initiate milk let down as breast milk begins to flow.
