In Vitro Fertilization Market Global Forecasts

Spread the love

The global in vitro fertilization (IVF) market is experiencing rapid expansion, forecast to reach $987 million by 2026 according to a new report by MarketsandMarkets. This represents impressive 9.1% compound annual growth over the next four years. Rising rates of infertility coupled with growing social acceptance of IVF treatments is fueling demand.

Several key factors underpin robust outlooks for the IVF sector. These include greater public awareness regarding infertility, newer and more advanced IVF technologies coming to market, and loosening regulations in many regions. The median age of first-time mothers also continues trending upwards in developed economies, leading more women to seek assisted reproductive services later in life.

However, high procedure costs threaten to restrain wider adoption. A single IVF cycle can cost between $10,000-15,000, presenting financial hardships for many couples. This is especially true in emerging economies where disposable incomes remain low. Public and private insurance providers also offer limited coverage for IVF and related services.

In response, medical tourism to countries with more affordable treatments is accelerating. The rise of quality yet lower-cost medical care in regions like Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia provides options for prospective parents. Companies are also expanding payment plans and financial assistance programs.

Equipment to Lead Product Category

The report forecasts equipment to comprise the fastest growing product segment through 2026. Continual innovation such as more advanced incubation systems, laser tools, and embryo imaging devices support rising demand. Intense competition among medical device manufacturers is also making state-of-the-art equipment more accessible.

Meanwhile reagents and media for IVF procedures follow closely behind. These components are necessary for successful conception and represent recurrent revenue streams.

IVF with ICSI to Outpace Standard IVF Protocols

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) paired with IVF is predicted to become more popular over the next few years. ICSI shows higher fertilization rates compared to traditional IVF, which should drive adoption. This bodes well for providers specializing in these services. The technology is particularly helpful for couples with prior difficulties conceiving.

Fertility Clinics Command Largest Market Share

Fertility clinics are expected to maintain their leading share of the IVF industry. Ongoing efforts by governments to fund new specialized clinics coupled with mergers and acquisitions activity among service providers supports the positive outlook. Large multi-location chains are broadening access and capturing patients through aggressive marketing campaigns.

Developing countries across Asia-Pacific currently dominate the IVF industry, controlling over 35% market share globally. High population bases, rising incomes, and improving healthcare infrastructure make the region attractive. China, India, Thailand and Malaysia are major hubs for medical tourists from around the world. North America and Europe follow closely behind, though growth rates lag due to market maturity.

With forecasts decidedly bullish, companies operating in the IVF space stand to capitalize on tailwinds over the coming years. Yet stubbornly high costs and questions around long-term efficacy of treatments remain hurdles. Innovations enabling wider access with consistent results can unlock new waves of demand worldwide.
