Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (Hcg) Market Is Estimated To Witness High Growth Owing To Increasing Applications Of Hcg

The Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 757.09 Mn or Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone made by the placenta of pregnant women. It is responsible for several important aspects of early pregnancy development and growth. HCG hormone administration is useful to stimulate maturation of eggs in the ovaries and treat infertility issues. It is also used to prevent miscarriage and check any abnormalities in the early stages of pregnancy. HCG injections help in inducing ovulation and increasing pregnancy rates for women undergoing fertility treatment.

Market key trends:

Increasing application of HCG in early pregnancy diagnosis and fertility treatment is a major factor driving growth of the market. HCG blood or urine test is commonly used to confirm pregnancy in women. It enables easy detection of pregnancy within first few days of conception. Rising infertility rates due to changing lifestyle habits have boosted demand for assisted reproduction technology (ART) procedures such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF). This is fueling consumption of HCG for supporting embryo implantation and early fetal development during IVF cycles. Furthermore, ongoing clinical research evaluating effectiveness of HCG for prevention of preterm birth and growth of fetal ovaries is creating new opportunities in the market.
