BURNABY, Canada, December 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Increasing prevalence of lifestyle disorders and increasing consumer awareness about available treatment options to drive India infertility treatments market 

According to recently published Pharmaion report, "India Infertility Treatments Market Opportunities, 2020", infertility treatments market in India is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 13% during 2015 - 2020. Growth in the market is anticipated on account of increase in the reproductive age of women, growing marriageable age, increasing use of contraceptives and rising consumption of alcohol and cigarettes. Moreover, adoption of technologies, such as Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) tests, Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH), Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD), and Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET), is proving to be cost effective to the patients, as combination of these technologies with infertility treatments results in improved success rates and reduced risk.

Female infertility dominates the infertility treatments market in India. In 2015, it is estimated that around 30 million Indian couples are suffering from lifetime infertility. In 1990, the Total Fertility Rate (TFR) in India was 3.9%, which declined to 2.3% in 2013. Poor sperm count in males and Polycystic Ovarian Disorder (PCOD) in females are some of the major causes of infertility among Indian population. For curing infertility, three treatments, namely, Fertility Drugs, Surgery, and Assisted Reproductive Treatments (ARTs), are being adopted across the country. Among these treatments, ART dominated the India infertility treatments market in 2014 on account of its capability to manipulate both male sperm as well as female egg coupled with high success rate of the treatment option. Among ART treatments, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) was the most widely adopted treatment in 2014.

"With growing technological advancements, there has been an increase in the success rate of the infertility treatments. However, some factors restraining the growth of this market in India are low awareness, high cost of treatment and lack of trust among patients. Moreover, the India infertility treatments market is mostly unregulated without any presence of a centralized regulatory body to control the market. Lack of rules and regulations in this field is a serious issue which is anticipated to be addressed by the Indian government during forecast period, thereby attracting many national and international investors." said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with Pharmaion Consultants, a research based global pharmaceutical and healthcare consulting firm.
