Global Sperm Bank Market to Clock Impressive Growth—Projected to Reach USD 5,970.0 Million by 2027

Published | 06 October 2021

An increasing number of infertility issues among men and women resulting from unhealthy lifestyles is driving the growth of the global sperm bank market. Furthermore, the growing awareness of assisted reproductive technology (ART) is anticipated to boost market growth.

A study recently conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm BlueWeave Consulting revealed that global sperm bank market was worth USD 4,654.0 million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 5,970.0 million by 2027 at a CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period (2021-2027). The global sperm bank market is being driven by factors such as the rising number of miscarriages worldwide, technological advancements in sperm storage, and rising awareness of infertility issues, as well as advances in cryopreservation.

Growing fertility tourism favoring the global sperm bank market

The demand for semen analysis services has increased significantly due to the growing fertility tourism trend in countries like Spain, Denmark, Czech Republic, and India. According to the data released by the National Association for Fertility Problems, Spain accounted for more than 40% of total European fertility tourism. Spain's 307 public and private clinics performed 138,553 IVF cycles and 36,463 artificial inseminations in 2016. India is also fast emerging as one of the hottest fertility tourism spots around the world. India has 500 legal fertility clinics, of which 350 offer surrogacy services. Approximately 5% of Indian couples opt for fertility services in India, while 70% of surrogacy cases are from foreign clients and 25% are from non-resident Indians and persons of Indian origin. As countries lift travel restrictions after the COVID-19, fertility tourism is expected to recover steadily and drive the growth of the global sperm bank market during the forecast period.

Increasing prevalence of miscarriages driving the growth of the global sperm bank market

Having a miscarriage is unfortunate for anyone involved, and the number of women experiencing miscarriages is high. According to Cleveland Clinic, almost 10-20% of pregnant women undergo miscarriage. Miscarriages can occur due to several reasons, such as infection, hormonal irregularities, uterine abnormalities, radiation, severe kidney issues, and thyroid disease.

Tommy's, a registered charity in England, Wales, and Scotland, reports that 1 in every four women experiences a miscarriage, and one in every hundred women experiences recurrent miscarriages (three or more in a row). Despite this, more than six in ten women who experience a recurrent miscarriage achieve a successful pregnancy. The encouraging stat shows that techniques like IVF, IUI, and others have significantly helped people conceive. As more and more people become aware of the miracles of IVF, IUI, and other similar techniques, the demand for sperm and sperm bank is likely to propel the growth of the global sperm bank market.
