The global in-vitro fertilization market is primarily driven by various factors such as rising male infertility, increasing in the median age of first time mothers, increasing obesity, declining fertility rates, and growing consumption of alcohol. Moreover, the rising awareness regarding the infertility coupled with the availability of advanced treatment options is fueling the demand for the in-vitro fertilization. The rising median age of the first time mothers is a significant growth driver. This is attributed to the rising number of women population prioritizing their education, work, and career. This results in late marriages. Moreover, the increased awareness regarding the contraceptives and its rising usage is another factor behind the increasing median age of the first time mothers. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, the median age of the first time mothers in Australia grew from 27.9 years to 31.9 years from 2009 to 2019. Therefore, the increasing average age of the first time mothers is one of the most significant factors that is estimated to propel the growth of the in-vitro fertilization market during the forecast period.
Delayed pregnancy after marriage is another crucial factor that drives the market growth. There has been a surge in the number of mothers who delays pregnancy even after the age of 35 years. The delayed pregnancies leads to complications in pregnancy, which gives rise to infertility and hence it drives the in-vitro market growth. Furthermore, the decline in fertility rates across the globe is contributing significantly to the growth of the market. According to the United Nations World Fertility Report 2019, a rapid decline in the fertility rate have been observed in around 77 countries across the globe. It was observed that the adolescent fertility rate decreased by over 50% between 1990 to 1995 and 2015 to 2020. As per the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the sperm count in men have declined more than 50% in the last 40 years. Therefore, the rapidly declining fertility rates are the top contributors to the growth of the global in-vitro fertilization market.
