Frequently Asked Questions
There are a number of reasons that IVF and Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) are becoming more common. These include the overall decline in the global fertility rate (decline in both male fertility, and female fertility as women postpone the age they try to conceive); the rising number of fertility clinics worldwide; technological advancements; and increasing public-private investments, funds, and grants. The world is experiencing a major fertility crisis, caused by both sociological and environmental circumstances. If the current rate of male infertility decline continues, researchers predict that 50% of men will be infertile by 2045.
An estimated 15% of couples will have trouble conceiving. Globally, 48.5 million couples experience infertility. Due to these factors, IVF is becoming far more popular. In the US alone, 60% of respondents to an infertility survey stated that they had received some form of fertility treatment. Today 1 in 8 couples require IVF. In 2019, 2.5 million IVF procedures were performed globally. At the forecasted growth rate of 10% annually, the number of procedures is expected to double and reach 5 million by 2026. According to Swan & Colino (2021), most couples may have to use assisted reproduction. Although the use of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is still relatively rare compared to potential demand, its use has more than doubled over the past decade in the US alone.
The average cost of an IVF cycle in the US is $12,400 US. This does not include the cost of advanced treatments or related medications and drugs required.
The average cost of the first IVF cycle in the US is $19,234 US. The global average direct cost for a single IVF cycle is $4,950 US. According to this figure, the treatment market size is expected to reach $25 billion US dollars in 2025, and the total global fertility market expected to reach $52 billion.
The world is experiencing a major fertility crisis, caused by environmental and sociological circumstances. According to the current rate of male infertility decline, by 2045 50% of men will be infertile and most couples may have to use assisted reproduction (Swan & Colino, 2021)
