Sperm Count Test Market: Introduction
According to the report, the global sperm count test market was valued at US$ 1.9 Bn in 2020 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5% from 2021 to 2031. Semen analysis, also known as sperm count test, analyzes the health and viability of a man’s sperm. Semen is the fluid containing sperm (plus other sugar and protein substances) that is released during ejaculation. Semen analysis or sperm count test analyzes various factors such as number of sperms, movement of the sperms (sperm motility), and shape of sperms.
Sperm count tests are used in the diagnosis of male infertility, and to make sure no sperm are in the semen after vasectomy. Sperm count test is carried out in andrology lab, but a preliminary test or screening can be done using at-home sperm count test kit. The global sperm count test market is driven by decline in fertility rates and rise in awareness about male infertility.
Decline in Fertility Rates and Rise in Awareness about Infertility
Fertility patterns in the world have changed significantly in the past few decades. The global fertility rate has touched unprecedented low levels. In 1992, a study found a global 50% decline in sperm count in men over the previous 60 years. Multiple studies over subsequent years confirmed that initial finding, including a 2017 paper showing a 50% to 60% decline in sperm concentration between 1973 and 2011 in men from around the world. According to NCBI, 20% to 30% of infertility cases that contribute to 50% of cases overall are due to men. Therefore, this increases the need of sperm count test kits in order to help men understand their state of fertility.
According to NCBI, globally, around 48.5 million couples experience infertility. Hence, people have become more aware about the different treatments and procedures to test fertility. In 2015, April 19–25 was celebrated as the National Infertility Awareness Week in the U.S. The movement was sponsored by RESOLVE to spread awareness about infertility, which affects one in eight couples in the U.S.
Microscopy to Lead Sperm Count Test Market
In terms of technique, the global sperm count test market has been classified into microscopy, chromatographic immunoassay and colorimetric reaction, smartphone-based, and others. The microscopy segment held major share of the global sperm count test market in 2020 and is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. The segment’s dominance can be attributed to rise in awareness about male fertility and sperm testing or semen analysis, which is performed in andrology lab using a microscope.
North America to Lead Sperm Count Test Market
In terms of region, the global sperm count test market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The sperm count test market in North America was valued at US$ 642.3 Mn in 2020 and is projected to reach US$ 1.1 Bn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2021 to 2031. The demand for sperm count test is increasing in North America, primarily driven by factors such as aging and infertility, rise in prevalence of obesity, and cultural shift. Increase in awareness among people about the usage of sperm count test for testing infertility of men drives the market in the region.
Key players operating in the global market include SwimCount (MotilityCount ApS), AB ANALITICA s.r.l., Diacron International s.r.l, Artron Laboratories, Inc., Medical Electronic Systems, LLC, ExSeed Health, Trak Fertility (Standstone Diagnostics), DNA Diagnostics Center, Microptic SL, and Olympus Corporation, Inc.
