Increasing delayed pregnancy cases and soaring rise in the rate of infertility owing to a stressful lifestyle and consumption of alcohol, tobacco are primary driving factors for the infertility treatment market. Additionally, advancements in medical technologies in IVF devices worldwide is projected to spur the market growth. Moreover, governments across the world are taking initiatives regarding fertility treatment, especially in emerging economies along with availability and development of innovative minimally invasive treatments which has boosted the market further.

Nevertheless, these fertility treatments are costly. Furthermore, infertility treatments have some issues like ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), bleeding or infection and the most commonly observed problem, multiple pregnancy. All these factors can significantly impede market growth.

Increasing incidences of obesity and diabetes, environmental effects like air pollution and changing lifestyle are some integral factors leading to infertility in both women and men.

Additionally, workplace stress is another contributing factor for increase in infertility cases.

Additionally, social taboos and high infertility treatment costs pose difficult challenges for market growth. Majority of male patients, especially from the developing nations, are ashamed to accept their infertility and often deny it. Besides this, a lack of awareness in emerging economies regarding infertility treatments is further hampering the market growth.
