Dental Consumables Segment by Type to Lead Dental Market during 2021–2028

The cases of dental and oral conditions such as tooth canal, infection, dry mouth, tooth loss, cavities, and dental trauma are increasing worldwide. According to the WHO, over 3.5 billion people were affected by oral disorders in 2020. Apart from caries and periodontal diseases, malocclusion is also a frequently occurring oral cavity issue, described as a tooth irregularity of the dental arches. The US government is focusing more on the dental health of school students since children are more vulnerable to cavities and gum problems. Besides, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) runs the school programs with the assistance of private dental services.

All the branches of dentistry underwent significant technological advancement in the past three decades leading to precise diagnostic tools and surgical methods. The transition from a simple handheld instrument to high-tech tools such as manual electric handpiece, hybrid handpiece, and soft-tissue lasers is critical to the dental surgery instruments business. Several market players are introducing advanced dental tools to simplify surgical processes. In July 2019, Dentsply Sirona launched MultiMate Cube device for high-level process reliability and performance. Such advancements are modernizing the dental and oral health care facilities.

The demand for dental cosmetic procedures has been surging across the world due to consciousness about appearance and aesthetics. Besides, the growing elderly population, rising expenditure out-of-pocket, and awareness about oral hygiene are also among the primary stimulators of the market. Hungary has emerged as the top European destination for dental procedures, with over 7,000 visitors every year. A root canal treatment in the US starts from US$ 550, while in Hungary, it costs US$ 69 only. Moreover, dental cosmetic services are no longer confined to the rich and famous, middle-income population is now opting to have aesthetic appeal. All these aforementioned aspects accelerate the global dental market.
