Market Overview

Infertility is defined medically as a woman's inability to become pregnant after nine months of unprotected sexual contact (or without the use of birth control tablets). According to the NHS, around one in every seven couples, or approximately four million individuals, has difficulty conceiving. Problems with ovulation are a prevalent cause of infertility in women. Lack of ovulation in women can be caused by polycystic ovary syndrome, thyroid difficulties (both hyperactive and underactive thyroid glands impede ovulation), and early ovarian failure, according to numerous medical practitioners. Market companies are launching innovative drugs to treat infertility. In the current instance, Oxolife is developing the first-in-class product candidate OXO-001, which is intended to improve embryo binding to the inner lining of the uterus by enhancing binding. Furthermore, the biopharmaceutical business Ferring Pharmaceuticals, located in the United States, just introduced Trisequens, a revolutionary reproductive medication for women.

Driving Factors

One of the major development factors for the market is the rising prevalence of infertility throughout the world. According to World Health Organization (WHO) research, around 17.5% of the adult population, or nearly one in every six individuals globally, suffer from infertility, highlighting the critical need to enhance access to inexpensive, high-quality reproductive treatment for those in need. In addition, lifestyle changes, delayed pregnancies, environmental variables, and medical problems such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis all contribute to the increased frequency of infertility. Such things will help the market flourish. Furthermore, as the world's population ages and fertility rates fall, demand for infertility treatments and medications is predicted to rise in the following year. Also, Infertility medications, as well as the existence of a variety of treatments for treating these illnesses, are likely to contribute effectively to the market. In-vitro fertilization (IVF) therapies, for example, which entail fertilizing an egg outside of the body, are becoming more frequent and are likely to boost the market's growth.


Restraining Factors

The risks and adverse effects of infertility medicines may severely impede market growth. While these medicines are intended to help couples achieve conception, they can also have risks and side effects. Headaches, mood swings, hot flashes, nausea, and bloating are some of the most prevalent adverse effects of infertility medications. Some people may have more serious problems, such as ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), which causes enlarged ovaries and fluid retention. OHSS can cause stomach discomfort, shortness of breath, and even death in rare circumstances. As a result, the harmful effects of infertility medications may severely impede market expansion.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2022, the gonadotropins segment is dominating the market with the largest market share during the forecast period.

Based on drug class, the global infertility drugs market is segmented into gonadotropins, aromatase inhibitors, SERMs, & dopamine agonists. Throughout all segments, the gonadotropins segment has the biggest revenue share over the predicted period. This can be due to the high cost of products as well as rising usage owing to enhanced efficacy. Some of the most often used gonadotropins to treat infertility are Gonal-F, Follitism, Menopur, and Bravelle. As a result, the high effectiveness associated with gonadotropins may attract a new target audience and expand the source of revenue.


  • In 2022, the parenteral segment is influencing the largest market share over the forecast period.

On the basis of the route of administration, the global infertility drugs market is classified into parenteral and oral. Among these segments, the parenteral segment is dominating the market, due to the Infertility medications are delivered directly and quickly into the bloodstream via the parenteral method, which includes injections and intravenous infusion. This results in more efficient and consistent medication absorption, leading to a speedier beginning of action and better treatment outcomes. As a result, healthcare professionals and patients are increasingly choosing parenteral administration of infertility medications, driving market developments. Furthermore, the parenteral method of administration enables accurate dosage and personalized treatment regimens, boosting market size.


  • In 2022, the women segment is influencing the market with the largest market share revenue during the forecast period.

Based on drug class, the global infertility drugs market is bifurcated into men and women. Among these segments, the women segment has the biggest revenue share over the forecast period. The growth in female infertility is one of the market's primary drivers. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately one in five (19%) married women aged 15 to 49 years with no past births in the United States are unable to conceive after one year of infertility. In addition, one in every four (26%) women at this age had trouble becoming pregnant or bringing a pregnancy to term (impaired fecundity). As a result, rising female infertility will hasten segmental expansion. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) among women is expected to fuel sector expansion.


  • In 2022, the hospital segment is dominating the largest market share of USD 2 billion market revenue during the forecast period.

On the basis of distribution channels, the global infertility drugs market is classified into hospital pharmacies, specialty & retail pharmacies. Among these segments, the hospital segment is leading the market due to the increasing prevalence of infertility, along with increased healthcare knowledge, which will drive demand for specialist treatments. Hospital pharmacies are well-positioned to address this need and assure their availability inside the hospital context, hence driving sector trends. Furthermore, hospital pharmacists' superior pharmaceutical infrastructure and expertise, including compounding capabilities, enable customized and tailored therapies, adding to their rise in this market.
