Surrogacy Tourism: Sector Outlook

Surrogacy Tourism: Sector Outlook

Market Overview

Fertility treatment in many developed countries such as France, Germany, Dubai, U.K, U.S, and many other countries is very expensive. Therefore any person willing to become a single parent or homosexual couples are choosing to travel outside the nation to catch inexpensive ways of accomplishing their family-building aim. One prominent option is surrogacy tourism, in which many victims find success and happiness via a surrogate overseas.

Surrogacy is a practice in which one woman accepts to adhere pregnancy with the intention of granting the newborn from that pregnancy to another couple or person, with the mindset that the couple or person will parent that kid. This exercise of renting a woman’s womb for the birth of another person’s newborn is a debatable issue. But, as modernisation is changing the mind-set of all generations, the surrogacy exercise is also being accepted slowly in many societies, and now it is converting into a commercial form.  In a broader way, there are two types of surrogacy – traditional and gestational.

Surrogacy Tourism: Drivers

Expensive fertility treatment, unsuccessful infertility treatment, ban of surrogacy practice in many countries, increase in the number of single parents as well as homosexual couples, and women becoming health conscious are some of the prominent drivers that are boosting the demand for surrogacy tourism all over the globe. Majorly, technological advancements in tourism, medicine, and reproductive technology are playing a vital role in the growth of the surrogacy industry. There are numerous skilled, knowledgeable doctors performing third party reproduction outside the U.S; in countries such as India, Mexico, and El Salvador. In many places surrogates rent their womb with the motivation to get financial rewards, and some have even started opting it as their career.

Surrogacy Tourism: Trends

Surrogacy tourism is witnessing the trend of tie-ups among hospitals of different regions, where hospitals in the banned surrogacy country refer tie-up hospitals to the patients. Another trend is clinics and doctors assisting service receivers to find a surrogate. Many medical tourism agencies are emerging that support surrogates throughout the process; they have tied up with several clinics and doctors.

Surrogacy Tourism: Restraints and Considerations to Follow for Successful Surrogacy Tourism

The challenges that hinder surrogacy tourism to an extent is less awareness or unclear information about the surrogacy concept and the entire surrogacy tourism exercise. Moreover, in many regions surrogacy is an illegal act and is banned – countries including Thailand, India and many other countries. The mind-set of many couples to have their own baby, as well as reliability issues are the other factors that have hampered surrogacy tourism. Other challenges such as opting for other substitutes like adoption, treatment, and financial, administrative or practical issues of the service receiver, hinders surrogacy tourism to an extent. Many developing regions such as Asia, the Middle East, and Africa consider single parents as well as homosexual marriage as a taboo; hence due to society bondage and hesitation, many do not go for practicing surrogacy.

While surrogacy overseas is a feasible option, but it might not be very easy always, it is essential before practicing that the service receiver should do thorough research and contact proper consultants to acquire full knowledge about surrogacy. Some of the factors to be considered before going in for surrogacy include confirming the reputation and history of clinics and agencies.
