Infertility Drugs Market

Infertility Drugs Market is Expected to be Flourished by Increasing Adoption of IVF Treatments

Infertility drugs are medications that help people who are experiencing infertility to conceive a child. Some common infertility drugs are clomiphene citrate, letrozole, and gonadotropins. Clomiphene citrate and letrozole are oral medications that help stimulate follicle development and increase egg production. Gonadotropins are injectable fertility medications that contain follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and/or luteinizing hormone (LH) to further stimulate and mature egg follicles. These drugs are usually used in conjunction with fertility treatments such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF has been picking up pace worldwide as the successful treatment for infertility. During IVF, infertility drugs are administered to stimulate egg production and development before the eggs are manually retrieved for fertilization outside the body. Successful IVF cycles require well-developed mature eggs, which depends upon an optimal response to infertility medications.

The global Infertility Drugs Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3699 million in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Developed regions such as North America and Europe have witnessed increased IVF success rates in recent years which is creating high demand for infertility medications that enhance egg production and quality.
Another major driver for the market growth is increasing prevalence of infertility.
