Donor egg in vitro fertilization (IVF) is a process, wherein eggs are consensually borrowed from a donor, typically young woman (less than 33 years). The borrowed eggs from the donor are then fertilized using sperms of the recipient woman’s spouse. The resultant embryo is subsequently inserted in the recipient woman’s womb. The average success rate of this procedure ranges between 30% and 40%. Donor egg IVF can be performed on menopausal or elderly women, women patients suffering from severe endometriosis & tuberculosis, and those having major chromosomal defects. This procedure can also be performed in younger women who have undergone chemotherapy or radiation for cancer, women with prematurely failure of their ovaries, and also women who had undergone multiple-cycles of in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
Rise in prevalence of menopause across the world is projected to drive the global donor egg IVF services market. Most women reach menopause between 45 years and 55 years. According to American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists estimates, 6,000 women in the U.S. reach menopause every day, which is approximately 2 million per year in the country alone. The number of elderly women is expected to rise exponentially in the next few years. The average global age of women at the time of menopause is 51 years. Moreover, rise in the female geriatric population is expected to increase the number of women with menopause across the world. Significant percentage of women with menopause experiencing difficulty in conceiving is likely to drive demand for services required for addressing these conditions during the forecast period.
Increase in the geriatric population is also anticipated to propel the global donor egg IVF services market during the forecast period. Elderly women generally find it difficult to conceive naturally due to loss of fertility. According to United Nations 2015 report, the number of people aged 60 years and above increased from 607 million in 2000 to 901 million in 2015. The geriatric population is expected to rise by 56% to 1.4 billion by 2030 and anticipated to increase two-fold from 901 million to about 2.1 billion by 2050. Women will account for significant proportion of the overall elderly population. Rise in the female geriatric population is anticipated to increase the number of individuals suffering from fertility issues. This in turn is expected to drive demand for egg donation IVF services.
