DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "China Market Report for Assisted Reproduction Technology" report to their offering.
Regulated clinics offering IVF in China follow strict regulations and require documentation such as birth licenses and proof of marriage. Additionally, surrogacy, gender selection and IVF for single and homosexual couples are not permitted. Culminated with the reality that regulated clinics are operating past capacity, unregulated clinics have become increasingly common in China. The two major market limiters for the growth of ART in China are not from lack of patient demand but a shortage of trained medical professionals and strict regulations preventing access to IVF services.
The surplus in patient volume is currently being addressed through underground clinics in China and IVF tourism. The countries where patients travel to in order to receive IVF treatments are dispersed globally. While neighboring countries such as Thailand are a popular choice, additional factors such as sperm banks also influence patient choice. Despite being one of the most expensive options, a substantial number of Chinese patients will travel to the United States for insemination because of the genetic variability available at sperm banks. Often the reason why an individual or couple is seeking IVF treatments abroad will dictate where they travel to receive treatment. As ART rules and regulations vary by country, patients often elect a country that circumvents a regulation they are trying to avoid. For example, the cultural history and preference for male children in China is a major driver for patients to seek IVF outside of China's regulated clinics. Depending on the type of IVF treatment, Southern Europe and Australia are also popular tourism destinations for IVF patients from China.
