Global Infertility Drugs and Devices Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe, and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
COVID-19 affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand of drugs, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and others faced problems regarding transportation of equipments from one place to another.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic had positive impact on the global infertility drugs and devices market . COVID had a significant impact on the studied market. Various studies and articles has been published on the impact of COVID on in vitro fertilization (IVF). For instance, according to a research report published by PubMed Central in February 2021, SARS-CoV-2 is alleged to interfere with ART operations and disrupt female fertility via controlling ACE2. Consequently, it was anticipated that the pandemic would have an impact on market growth; however, with the decline in COVID-19 cases and widespread vaccination, it is anticipated that the studied market will once again reach its full potential over the forecast period.
