Despite the presence of huge anonymous young sperm donors, the global anonymous market is not growing at the similar pace owing to the growing demand for known donors

Service-Type Insights

Furthermore, sperm storage segment is projected to be the fastest growing during the forecast period. The increasing collaboration between sperm banks and hospitals, rising infertility, and growing international demand for sperms are expected to boost the segment growth.
