Current Scenario of the Global IVF Market

The concept of IVF was introduced to the world in 1965, and since then, IVF has evolved and experienced several advancements with the help of technology and become a solution for couples and individuals to fight infertility. The popularity and the adoption of IVF have grown remarkably in the last decade of the timeline. The demand for IVF is continuously expanding due to factors such as delayed childbearing, rising awareness of infertility treatments among people and an increasing number of advancements in reproductive technologies. The U.S. is one of the countries with the highest usage rates of IVF worldwide. The population suffering from infertility is growing steadily in the U.S., which is primarily fueling the adoption of IVF in the U.S. Along with that, access to advanced reproduction technologies and insurance coverage for fertility treatments in some of the U.S. states are further contributing to the demand for IVF in the U.S. In the Asia-Pacific region, countries such as Japan, India, China, Australia, and New Zealand have been experiencing promising demand for IVF as the population increasingly seeks fertility treatments in these countries. Europe has gained popularity as a hub for fertility tourism worldwide. European countries such as Spain, Denmark, and Belgium have the highest usage rates of IVF, and these countries offer favorable healthcare policies and access to advanced medical infrastructure that support fertility. The usage rates of IVF have been taking flight in the Middle East and Africa, and this trend can be clearly seen, especially in countries such as Saudi Arabia and Israel, where cultural attitudes towards family and fertility have been changing, and access to advanced infertility technologies is improving. Considering these happenings, the global IVF market is predicted to register promising growth during the forecast period.


The continuous increase in the population suffering from infertility worldwide is primarily driving the growth of the global IVF market.

As per the data published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 8% to 10% of couples are facing the issue of infertility. Another report from the CDC revealed that an estimated 6.1 million women in the U.S. aged between 15 to 44 years have issues of getting pregnant or holding the pregnancy. Lifestyle changes in people are significantly contributing to infertility among people. Lifestyle factors such as obesity and the consumption of smoking and alcohol can cause infertility among men and women, says the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). In addition to that, delayed childbearing, environmental pollutants, stress, and underlying health conditions are some other notable reasons resulting in infertility among people. Obesity is also causing infertility among people. Fat deposits in a woman's abdomen prevent follicular stimulation, and fat deposits lower testosterone levels in men and cause a decrease in sperm production. Due to the growing prevalence of infertility, majority of the couples have been using advanced reproduction technologies such as IVF to achieve pregnancy and parenthood.

The rising adoption of IVF among LGBTQ+ couples is boosting the growth rate of the global IVF market.

An increase in the number of LGBTQ+ community couples is also leading to rising requirements as more gay and lesbian couples opt for IVF procedures using sperm and egg donors and surrogacies, which is another major factor propelling the global IVF market growth. In several countries, the acceptance of LGBTQ+ relationships is increasing, and the same growth can be seen in same-sex marriages. Couples of same-sex have been pursuing parenthood through assisted reproductive technologies such as IVF, and this trend is slowly accelerating and supporting the IVF market growth. For instance, as per the 2017 report of the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority, an increase of 12% was noticed in same-sex female couples seeking fertility treatments in the U.K. between 2016 and 2017.

Furthermore, the rise in awareness among people regarding advanced reproduction technologies such as IVF, increasing R&D efforts by the key market participants, and initiatives from various governments in favor of IVF, such as favorable reimbursement policies, are boosting the global IVF market growth. An increase in the number of fertility procedures to treat male infertility, such as ICSI is promoting the IVF market growth. The wide availability of genomic testing to prevent the transfer of genetic diseases during IVF will drive market growth in the years to come. In addition, the growing number of IVF has prompted insurers to cover these procedures, leading to competitive prices and thus lowering treatment costs and these factors are predicted to aid the growth of the in vitro fertilization (IVF) market globally during the forecast period.


On the downside, the high costs of IVF and risks associated with IVF and ICSI treatment are expected to hinder the IVF market growth.

For instance, according to data published by the Reproductive Science Center, a unique condition called imprint disorders linked with IVF procedures anticipated that the risk of such diseases with IVF treatment was around 2 to 5 for all. Sixteen thousand five hundred births using the IVF technique, while the risk in general cases was 2 in 16,500 normal births. Hence, the potential dangers and congenital disabilities associated with IVF treatment and high-priced IVF treatment are estimated to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.

In addition, factors such as limited insurance coverage for fertility treatments, religious and cultural stigmas around infertility treatments and limited success rates of IVF procedures are further hampering the IVF market growth.
