IVF and other assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures, surrogacy, and intrauterine insemination are some of the widely performed fertility services in Australia & New Zealand.
The Australia & New Zealand fertility services market is driven by increase in infertility rates, rise in trend of delayed pregnancies, surge in ART success rate, and growth in disposable income.

Based on procedure, the IVF with ICSI segment accounted for more than one-third share in the Australia & New Zealand fertility services market in 2018.
