Donor Egg IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) Market

Donor Egg IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) Market: Government Funding & Reimbursement Policies to Play Instrumental Role: Global Industry Analysis 2013–2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 -2028


Rising Funding and Initiatives to Encourage Egg/Sperm Freezing are expected to drive the Donor Egg IVF Market

Oocyte cryopreservation is an egg preserving process that is intended to provide an option for women who want to become pregnant in the future. This process can be carried out using the donor egg IVF technique. To overcome the burden of infertility, governments and private funding programmes have undertaken initiatives that are expected to benefit women.

In April 2016, The National Infertility Association initiated the movement “National Infertility Awareness Week” from 24th-30th April 2016 to raise awareness about infertility. In 2014, Apple and Facebook offered to freeze the eggs of their female employees, which is also among factors driving the donor egg IVF market.

Increase in Egg Banking Among Women is one of the Leading Trends in the Donor Egg IVF Market

Rising infertility has encouraged couples to freeze their egg or sperm and use them when they want to conceive or in case they are unable to conceive in the future. Late marriages and lifestyle disorders are some of the key factors responsible for infertility.

Some countries offer significant benefits for women who donate their eggs to infertile couples or women, which has led to an increase in egg donations by women in those countries. Thus, increase in the rate of egg freezing is also expected to drive the donor egg IVF market.

Increased Fertility Tourism is expected to drive the Donor Egg IVF market

The high cost of fertility treatment has made it very difficult for an infertile couple to have a baby. Moreover, in certain countries, rules and regulations pertaining to the same are strict and discrepant, which is another factor that is discouraging couples from opting for fertility treatments. These drawbacks have encouraged couples to search for better treatment options and facilities abroad.

Couples can seek fertility treatment outside their country where not only is the cost very economical as compared to their country, but the success rate is also higher and facilities are better. Rising awareness regarding fertility treatment options in other countries and the success stories of infertile couples have increased the popularity of fertility tourism worldwide. This is expected to ultimately fuel the growth of the donor egg IVF market.


  • The global donor egg IVF market is categorised mostly by fertility clinics and IVF centres
  • Most of the countries, especially Europe, offer good service at a reasonable budget for donor egg IVF procedures, and some countries reimburse 50% of the treatment cost for unsuccessful donor egg IVF procedures
  • Infertility caused due to cancer treatments is estimated to increase the patent pool opting for donor egg IVF treatment and indirectly boost the donor egg IVF market. Countries such as Spain, Czech Republic, Belgium, the U.S., South Africa, etc., have high success rate for pregnancy and birth with donor egg IVF. Around 45-50% of egg donation takes place in Spain

Donor Egg IVF – Popularity of Egg Banking and Fertility Tourism

This, in line with growing popularity of fertility tourism, encouraged by laws that promote anonymity of donors and treatments of mothers, allude at promising advances in the donor egg IVF landscape.

Market Set to Grow 2X between 2018 and 2028

Private and government funding programs for couples who are unable to conceive a child, and the move of regulatory bodies toward increasing awareness of infertility and associated available options, continue to push boundaries of the donor egg IVF landscape.

Developed Economies Remain the Wave Pool for Growth

In the wake of fertility tourism and rising trend of egg banking and freezing, relevant regulatory bodies in developed markets have been aiming at self-sufficiency in importing human eggs through novel business models. Europe continues to lead the way in the donor egg IVF landscape, with Spain at its forefront. Favourable laws that encourage reimbursements and treatment women associated with IVF and surrogates have made Spain the preferred destination for reproductive procedures.
