The size of the In-Vitro fertilization (IVF) market in Europe is expected to reach USD 2.67 billion by 2029 from USD 1.3 billion in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 15.4% during the forecast period. In 2020, the EU5 (Germany, France, United Kingdom, Spain, and Italy) collectively accounted for around three-fifths of the European market share. Moreover, most fertility clinics in Europe offer services to the population to prevent infertility, due to which this region has witnessed a high and increased frequency of fertility clinics.

The falling birth rate in Germany is plus to the market’s growth rate. The availability the reimbursement policies in the European region is anticipated to result in the IVF market growth in Europe.

In addition, factors such as rising public and private sector participation in the IVF market, increasing support for the growth of fertility clinics and infertility services across the European region, the growing focus of market participants towards fertility protection activities, and education to improve the network for sharing best practices and brief information on infertility and fertility are anticipated to drive the European IVF market. The number of IVF centers in Europe is growing considerably due to the growing population and rising trend of delayed pregnancy among women. Furthermore, as the age increases, the chances of natural conception decrease, leading to an increase in infertility problems; as a result, more women are forced to use in vitro fertilization banking services to increase the success rate, which is expected to boost the market growth. In addition, because these centers strive to provide public funding for all lines of fertility treatment to eliminate the stigma associated with infertility, the IVF market is anticipated to grow further.

Furthermore, the growing awareness regarding the availability of various treatment options for infertility is supporting the European IVF market growth.

In addition, a patient may need multiple pregnancy cycles due to the lower success rate of IVF procedures, which increases the total cost. The average cost of this procedure is approximately USD 15,125 to USD 25,300, which is often a significant barrier to adopting the technique. Besides, ethical considerations and lack of reimbursement are other challenges hampering the market's growth. In addition, the lack of reimbursements and ethical considerations against IVF further inhibit the European IVF market growth.
