The infertility market in India is highly fragmented. There are no organized IVF chains and the
industry is dominated by regional stand-alone clinics. Not many big players are focusing on
this segment, while many big and small infertility clinics are coming up in cities. There are
about 500 IVF clinics all over India, most of which are located in large cities, for example,
Mumbai has over 40 clinics. There is no single large player and while large clinics do about
1,000 IVF cycles per year, the smaller ones do about 30 per year. According to industry
experts, the total number of cycles being performed in India is much lesser than it’s potential
due to lack of adequate facilities in the unorganized healthcare sector.
This scenario is likely to change, as corporates start entering this segment and setup a
network of clinics all over the country. There are few well known names already in this
space. Many prominent city hospitals have been identified as part of this initiative. Hospitals
that will integrate the infertility treatment, obstetric/high-risk obstetric services, and
neonatal care have been growing.
