The Women's Infertility Market is Estimated to Decline until 2016

GlobalData estimates that the global Women's infertility market was valued at $1.08 billion in 2009 and is forecast to decline at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -10% to reach $520m by 2016. The decline in market growth is primarily due to strong market competition and the entry of generics. Some key branded products such as Cetrotide, GONAL-f, Crinone, Ovidrel, Luveris, Pergoveris and Puregon are going to face severe threats from generics as they approach patent expiry between 2010 and 2015. Although the incidence and prevalence of the condition are increasing, the reducing drug prices are allowing the market to decline.

Current Treatment Options Cater to Most of the Market Needs

GlobalData finds that the women's infertility market is highly competitive with highly successful branded drugs and generics. The market is dominated by some key therapies such as clomiphene citrate, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), gonadotrophin-releasing hormone antagonists (GnRH), human menopausal gonadotropin (hMG), and follicle stimulating hormones. All of the therapies that are available to treat infertility in women are highly efficacious and safe. The current drugs serve almost all of the available opportunities in the market and therefore leave low unmet needs.
