Smart fertility tracker is a device that helps predict the ovulation time based on physiological parameters of fertility such as the basal body temperature. Females get pregnant only during 6 days of ovulation, which provides a narrow fertility window. Smart fertility trackers help in managing pregnancy by predicting the start and end of these days.
The rising incidence of pregnancy-related problems, timing issues between partners wanting a child owing to rise in risk factors such as busy life and career are among key drivers of the smart fertility tracker market. The liberalization of women from the burden of birth control by using contraceptives is a strong psychological driver of the market. Smart fertility trackers solve the risk of manual fertility charting method (rhythm method), which is notoriously ineffective to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Smart fertility trackers enable both partners to engage in sex and prevent pregnancy without the side effects of hormone-based birth control pills.
Smart Fertility Tracker Market: Drivers and Restraints
The growing capabilities as well as adoption of smart wearables, coupled with the availability of technologically advanced biosensors connected to smart devices that simplify recording, storing and analysing data, are some of the critical technical drivers of the market. The desire and potential demand for fertility trackers can be gauged from the fact that they represent the second most frequently downloaded type of health apps from the Apple Store after activity trackers. The advancement of non-invasive, affordable and user-friendly Photoplethysmography (PPG) technology to measure the pulse rate is driving product development.
However, concerns regarding the effectiveness of fertility trackers are among prominent factors restraining the market. A few studies have indicated that if practiced perfectly, fertility trackers can be as effective as the pill for preventing pregnancy. For example, a study conducted in 2007 by German scientists and published in Oxford Human Reproduction journal calculated a failure rate of only 0.6% for fertility trackers. However, there is lack of accurate scientific validation, which is hampering market growth. The difficulties in accurately interpreting physiological signals that vary by a large magnitude between women is another factor hampering the adoption of smart fertility trackers. Moreover, due to scepticism, only a few doctors prescribe fertility trackers as a form of contraception.
