The in-vitro fertilization microscope market is segmented on the basis of type, end user, and region. By type, the market is divided into upright microscopes, inverted microscopes, stereo microscopes, and embryo microscope. By end user, the market is classified into clinical and academic research. By region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

The in-vitro fertilization microscopes market is segmented into Type and End User.

In-vitro Fertilization Microscopes Market by Type

By type, the embryo microscope segment dominated the market in 2021. The embryo microscope, now in use at IVF lab, is a new tool designed specifically for use in IVF laboratories. It has a camera and computer system designed to capture images of embryos growing in an incubator during in vitro fertilization cycles. These images, which were captured by a camera as the embryos developed in their culture dish, are displayed on a computer screen in the IVF lab. The computer system not only displays images of embryos; however, it displays information about their growth pattern. This information enables embryologists at Ovation Fertility Austin to observe healthy embryo development and detect any problems with cell division timing that may occur during the early stages of growth. These are anticipated to be the major factors affecting the In-vitro fertilization microscopes market size during the forecast period.

In-vitro Fertilization Microscopes Market by End User

By end user, the clinical segment dominated the global In-vitro fertilization microscopes market share in 2021. Major factors driving segment growth include rise in awareness of IVF treatment and increased private investor investments in infertility clinics. The increasing use of a variety of microscopes in clinical Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) procedures is expected to drive segment growth during the forecast period. Microscopes are used in clinical ART facilities to select gametes and perform clinical procedures. Oocyte & embryo morphology and viability are examined using stereo microscopes, whereas sperm morphology, motility, and viability are examined using upright microscopes. While both types of microscopes are used in clinical settings, inverted microscopes are best suited for ART.

In-vitro Fertilization Microscopes Market by Region

By region, Europe dominated the global market in 2021 and is projected to remain the fastest-growing segment during the In-vitro fertilization microscopes market forecast period. Time-lapse technology with clinic-designed algorithms has seen widespread adoption in the region. Innovation in microscopes that provide all imaging requirements in a single embryo chamber, reducing the need for multiple workstations, assists in the saving of space and cost of the procedure. Furthermore, due to the falling birth rate of around 2.21 children/woman in Germany, the subsidy of IVF treatment is an important factor in the growth of this market. In addition, the national health plan (PSN) covers roughly half of the total cost of treatment. It allows for three cycles of in-vitro fertilization, which is expected to boost the market for in vitro fertilization, particularly in Germany. This factor boosts the IVF microscopes industry market growth in Europe.

Impact of COVID-19 on the In-Vitro Fertilization Microscope Industry

  • COVID-19 has negatively impacted various industries such as microscope that has led to a drastic decline in microscope sales. In-vitro fertilization microscope, which is widely used in IVF treatment, witnessed reduction in the In-vitro fertilization microscope demand globally.
  • During the World Health Organization's (WHO) COVID-19 pandemic, which was declared in March 2020, fertility societies worldwide recommended that IVF treatment be discontinued, except for essential medical fertility preservation. IVF centre operations resumed after measures such as decontaminating & validating equipment, ensuring adequate staffing, and completing risk assessments.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the market due to social distancing norms and delays in fertilisation operations. As IVF patients must visit the clinic once a week, IVF procedures were halted during the pandemic.
