Global Surrogacy Market Analysis:

  • Major Market Drivers: The surrogacy market is mainly fueled by the growing incidence of infertility and the increasing awareness and societal acceptance of surrogacy as a viable option. Legal developments in a number of countries, which create transparent rules and safeguards for all participants, play a key role in market expansion. Improvements in medical innovations that enhance the success rates of IVF treatments also increase the need for surrogacy. In addition, the increasing recognition of LGBTQ+ rights and the demand from homosexual couples to have organic children are vital. Economic considerations, with surrogacy services being provided at cheaper rates in some areas, also act as the market driver.
  • Key Market Trends: The surrogacy market is growing due to the increasing infertility rates and the growing acceptance of nontraditional family forms. The tendency is to move towards gestational surrogacy, which stands out by its genetic distance between the surrogate and the child. Innovations in Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) are improving success rates, making the demand even higher. In addition, legal changes in different countries are eliminating the legislative uncertainty that surrounds surrogacy, which makes it quite available. Seafaring surrogacy is also increasing due to legal and cost differences among countries. Nevertheless, ethical considerations and regulatory variations present the global surrogacy market with challenges.
  • Competitive Landscape: Some of the major market players in the global surrogacy market include Bourn Hall Clinic, CARE Fertility, Circle Surrogacy & Egg Donation, Extraordinary Conceptions, Growing Generations LLC, Houston Fertility Center, IVIRMA Global, Max Healthcare, New Hope Fertility Center, Nova IVF, Ovation Fertility, Scanfert Clinic, etc.
  • Geographical Trends: The most significant market for surrogacy is North America, largely benefiting from the relatively vacant legal environment. The legal framework of many countries is clear and supportive enough to protect the rights of the intended parents, surrogates, and the resultant children. Legal certainty of this type attracts not only domestic but also international intended parents who are looking for surrogacy services that are easily enforceable and reliable. Moreover, America provides highly developed fertility treatment medical centers and assures success rates and safety profiles of surrogacy procedures. This together with rather high public acceptance of surrogacy, makes North America the main market in the world’s surrogacy scene.
  • Challenges and Opportunities: Surrogacy raises issues of exploitation, especially in areas where there are fewer regulations and, if not well planned, could lead to emotional, legal, and financial abstractions for all the parties involved. Legally, laws in different countries can complicate custody and parental rights issues. Nevertheless, surrogacy presents significant opportunities especially to people who cannot conceive naturally, such as same-sex couples and people with medical infertility. The advances in reproductive technology have improved safety and effectiveness of the process and expanded family-building options.

Global Surrogacy Market Report

Surrogacy Market Trends/Drivers:

Legal Framework and Support

The legal environment significantly affects the market for surrogacy. The jurisdiction with clear and supportive legislations eliminates the unnecessary risks associated with surrogacy for all the parties involved and creates a safe and trusted process which also suits the surrogates. For instance, gestational surrogacy accounts for approximately 90% of all surrogacy arrangements. The success rate for gestational surrogacy is around 75%. Such legal support guarantees the rights protection and defines parental custodies thus appealing to a wider intended parents demographic.

Advancements in Reproductive Technologies

The innovations that were made in the area of reproductive medicine have made surrogacy safer and more efficient. The probability and success rate of pregnancy are increased by innovations such as IVF, genetic screening, and embryo transfer techniques, hence making surrogacy attractive to those who wish to start or grow their families. For instance, the pregnancy success rate per embryo transfer in gestational surrogacy ranges from 30% to 60%. The success rates may be higher when using younger and healthy surrogates. Approximately 2% of babies born in the United States were conceived using assisted reproductive technology. Success rates vary but are closely correlated with the quality of the eggs and embryos. PGT- tested embryos have a live birth rate of 75-80%.

Societal Acceptance and Changing Norms

The growth of the surrogacy market is driven by the growing societal acceptance of different family forms, including those formed through surrogacy. With the reduction of cultural and social barriers, surrogacy is becoming a more acceptable option in modern society. For instance, a study found that 54.8% of medical students and 52.9% of lawyers surveyed in Lebanon were supportive of surrogacy. Such shift is based on the increasing level of awareness and understanding in surrogacy practices.

Breakup by Type:

  • Gestational Surrogacy
  • Traditional Surrogacy

Gestational surrogacy dominates the market

The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the type. This includes gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy. According to the report, gestational surrogacy represented the largest segment.

Gestational surrogacy method involves the surrogate carrying the pregnancy that is conceived from the eggs and sperm of the intended parents or donors. It offers unique benefits, such as reducing the genetic connection between the surrogate and the offspring, thus solving legal and psychological challenges. Gestational surrogacy also provides an opportunity for individuals and couples with reproductive issues, same-sex couples, and people interested in genetic diversity. Additionally, the improvements in accuracy of assisted reproductive technologies, namely in vitro fertilization (IVF), are driving up the success rates of gestational surrogacy.

  • Intrauterine Insemination

IVF with ICSI holds the largest share in the market

A detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the technology has also been provided in the report. This includes IVF with ICSI, IVF without ICSI, and intrauterine insemination. According to the report, IVF with ICSI accounted for the largest market share.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a sophisticated approach to assisted reproductive technology that overcomes male infertility issues by injection of a single sperm directly into an egg, resulting in maximized fertilization. IVF combined with ICSI allows intended parents to deal with the complicated fertility problems, so surrogacy services become available to more clients. Additionally, the high success rates linked with this procedure also lead intended parents to regard surrogacy as a reliable avenue to happiness and as such, these success rates only make the demand for surrogacy services to thrive. The interconnection of IVF with ICSI increases the medical applicability of surrogacy and adds forces to its reputation as an efficacious instrument in the market development.

Breakup by Service Provider:

  • Hospitals
  • Fertility Clinics
  • Others

Fertility Clinics represent the most popular service provider

The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the service provider. This includes hospitals, fertility clinics, and others. According to the report, fertility clinics represented the largest segment.

Fertility clinics are a key driver in stimulating the market growth by providing necessary medical knowledge and facilities. These clinics provide a variety of advanced reproductive technologies, including in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer procedures, which are basic methods for surrogacy. The fertility clinics offer full medical assessments, detailed treatment plans, and constant surveillance over the whole surrogacy process, thereby providing the very best results. Moreover, fertility clinics work closely with surrogacy agencies and legal experts, thus, providing a smooth process for intended parents and surrogates. Fertility clinics facilitate the market growth as they are the centers of medical innovation and support that make the successful pregnancies possible, facilitate family expansion, and nurture intended parents and surrogates’ partnerships.
