India Became One of Favored Destinations for Infertility Treatments, Claims Kuick Research
24 Jan 2013 • by Natalie Aster
India has a large population of 1.22 Billion people and infertility in the country is rising at a rapid rate (about 30 Million couples suffer from infertility). Infertility or the inability to have children refers to a range of disorders some of which affect the male, and some the female, and contribute to childlessness in a couple. There is also something called unexplained infertility, where doctors are unable to provide a medical explanation for the couple’s inability to conceive.
According to the report “India IVF Treatment Market Outlook 2016” by Kuick Research, in India, approximately 15% - 20% of married couple's in their fertile age group, suffer from infertility and it is on the increase because of urbanization, pollution, chemical exposure, stress, competitive work environment, fast-paced lifestyles, late settlement in life, more women opting to work, increased incidence of diabetes, pelvic inflammatory diseases, etc.

Today, arrays of treatment options to treat infertility are readily available in India. These include medications for ovulation induction; endoscopic surgery to correct anatomical problems; and the assisted reproductive technologies, including IUI, IVF, and ICSI (intra cytoplasmic sperm injection).
Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is a term that refers to techniques used to achieve pregnancy by artificial or partially artificial means. The reproductive technologies market in India is in its infancy. This is largely due to social and ethical barriers to people discussing their sexual problems and doing anything about them. India’s first IVF baby (named Kanupriya Agarwal) was born in 1978 (by Dr. Subhas Mukhopadhyay, a Kolkata-based doctor) just two months after Louise Brown-the world’s first test tube baby was born. This path-breaking step in control of infertility constituted a base for the development of the IVF segment in India and the world over.
India has become one of the favored destinations for infertility treatments such as IVF due to several factors including its medical expertise, state-of-the-art technology (which is at par with the best in the world), and a cost-effective health care system.
