Global IVF Market Size (2023 to 2028)

As per our recent analysis report, the global IVF market size is expected to reach USD 6.86 billion by 2028 from USD 3.21 billion in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 16.4% during the forecast period.

Global IVF Market Share Insights:

  • Based on reagents and media, the cell culture media segment had 39.8% of the global market share in 2022.
  • Based on the end-user, the fertility clinics segment was the leader and held 82.4% of the global market share in 2022.
  • Based on the region, Europe captured the leading share of the global market in 2022.
  • The North American IVF market held the largest share of the worldwide market in 2022. 

The elevation in infertility cases and the evolution of the latest technologies, such as lens-less sperm imaging, are estimated to drive the IVF market in the coming years. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the inability to have a child affects approximately 7.1 million women in the United States or about 12.1% of the reproductive population. Additionally, 27% of couples have more than one factor that leads to infertility. To increase the success rate of in vitro fertilization, researchers have introduced techniques before the IVF procedure. Currently, advanced techniques are used, such as assisted hatching, verification, egg/sperm freezing, percutaneous aspiration of epididymal sperm and testicular sperm extraction (PESA and TESE), mini-IVF, triparental IVF, and genetic diagnosis.


The growing prevalence of infertility due to lifestyle changes, constant efforts by industry taxpayers, and government initiatives to offer better reimbursement policies propel the global IVF market growth.

Obesity is one of the essential factors of infertility in the population. Fat deposits in a woman's abdomen prevent follicular stimulation, thus producing male hormones. Meanwhile, fat deposits lower testosterone levels in men, leading to a decrease in sperm production. Therefore, the IVF market is estimated to thrive with the elevation in the global obesity rate due to lifestyle changes.

Furthermore, expanding fertility procedures to treat male infertility, such as ICSI, will positively influence the market's 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. These factors will promote the growth of the in vitro fertilization (IVF) market globally.

Additionally, the growing rates of infertility in both men and women due to the rising sedentary lifestyles and bad habits like alcoholism, along with unhealthy eating habits and rising pollution levels, are expected to support the expansion of this market. For instance, according to the WHO stats, 48 million couples and 186 million individuals have infertility globally. Furthermore, the growth of the 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. 


The elevated 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.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global IVF market:

Numerous ongoing IVF pregnancies have struggled because of the disturbance caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. As every moment is essential in this procedure, many expectant parents or people planning to begin parenthood through in vitro fertilization (IVF) experience an emotional roller coaster due to this current uncertainty. Even though some clinics have started to operate and hope the situation will improve, the Indian IVF market, a precursor to treatment, could see reverberations of COVID-19 long after the drug's disappearance virus. Moreover, as the pandemic has hit the economy terribly and liquid assets' availability has been drastically reduced, industry experts believe people's ability to pay will become a significant challenge.

This research report on the global IVF market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on the reagents & media, instruments, technology, end-users, and region.

IVF Market - By Reagents and Media:

  • Embryo Culture Media
  • Cryopreservation Media
  • Sperm Processing Media
  • Ovum Processing Media

Based on reagents and media, the embryo culture media segment accounted for the largest share of the global IVF market by reagents & media in 2022. The latest advanced technologies aid in R&D activities in developing the culture media, easy availability of funds, and the market players are focusing on supplying necessary equipment to meet the sterility needs.

The cryopreservation media segment is another lucrative segment in the global IVF market and is predicted to register a healthy CAGR during the forecast period. Cryopreservation is the most efficient process of freezing and storing cells leading to increased popularity for the segment. In addition, freezing eggs and sperm help overcome the problems of less fertility with aging and thus provides an option for parents who are not ready for kids yet but are hoping for children in the future. 

IVF Market -By Instruments:

  • Imaging Systems
  • Sperm Separation Systems
  • Ovum Aspiration Pumps
  • Incubators
  • Micromanipulator Systems
  • Cryptosystems
  • Other Instruments (Gas Analyzers, Laser Systems, Accessories)

Based on instruments, the imaging systems segment commanded the largest share of the global IVF market by instruments in 2022. This segment dominance is due to the continuous use of imaging systems during IVF procedures to judge the patient's condition. In addition, imaging systems help provide better patient care due to physicians' better understanding of the situation. 

On the other hand, the sperm separation systems segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The sperm separation systems are used in reproductive technology like ART like artificial insemination and IVF services. For example, in March 2018, DxNow, Inc. won the U.S. FDA 510(K) approval for its Zymot ICSI and Zymot Multi-Sperm Separation Devices. 

IVF Market - By Technology:
