Global In-vitro Fertilization Market Research Report – Forecast to 2023




In-vitro fertilization (IVF) has become an established treatment option for different forms of infertility. IVF procedures help infertile people to conceive. IVF provides women the opportunity to become pregnant using her own eggs or donor’s eggs and sperm from her partner or from a sperm donor. As the IVF procedure is quite expensive, people generally try out other options. In case of failure in other treatments, IVF remains as the only option for the people longing to experience parenthood. Additionally, in certain cases, IVF is chosen if the parents are fearful of passing certain genetic disorders to the child. The embryos can be tested for genetic abnormalities in medical labs prior to implantation.
The factors such as the rise in the rate of infertility and surrogacy in developing countries, increasing occurrence of reproductive tourism, and high success rate of IVF are anticipated to be the drivers for the growth of the market. Additionally, the changing lifestyle in urban areas and increased age of parenthood are expected to boost the growth of the market. Despite the drivers, the high cost related to assisted reproductive techniques (ART) may hamper the growth of the global in-vitro fertilization market.
The global in-vitro fertilization market has been segmented based on product, type, end-user, and region.
Based on product, the market is segmented into devices and reagents. The devices segment is further segmented into imaging systems, sperm separation system, ovum aspiration pump, cerosystem, and micromanipulator. The reagent segment is segmented into embryo culture media, cryopreservation media, sperm processing media, and ovum processing media.
Based on type, the market is segmented into intrauterine insemination (IUI), in-vitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and IVF using donor eggs.
Based on end-user, the market is segmented into fertility clinics, hospitals, clinical research centers, and others.
The global in-vitro fertilization market is expected to register a CAGR of 10.50% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023.
