About Dental Diagnostic and Surgical Equipment
The dental industry in China is an underpenetrated market. The ratio of dentists to population in China is 100 per one million. The number of dentists in the country is less compared with the US, Germany, France, Sweden, Australia, and South Korea. In addition, most of the dentists in the country still prefer traditional techniques to advanced dental technologies. For instance, instead of using 3D imaging-based robot-assisted technologies, they mostly use X-ray imaging procedures.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in market is growing investments by foreign investors. Dental industry in China is still in an early developmental stage, and a recent survey on oral health reported that about 94% of people have some dental issues. The majority of the Chinese population have a negative attitude toward private healthcare system. Despite this factor, the government is focusing on private investors to improve healthcare services for both general and dental care.”
According to the report, one driver in market is increase in incidence of orthodontic and periodontal diseases. Periodontal disease such as bleeding in gums is prevalent among the adult and pediatric population. In China, the prevalence of dental caries in an older population is common and varies in different regions from 68.03% to 88.48%. Dental caries is common and result in chewing difficulties, pain, and decrease their overall quality of life. Epidemiological studies show that the prevalence of dental caries is comparatively higher in adults when compared with children. In 2015, research estimated that about 600 million adults aged 24-54 in China have dental cavities. The report also stated that about 66.89% of the children aged 5 and 29% aged 12 have dental cavities. Smoking, inadequate oral hygiene, diabetes, and lack of awareness about dental health are major causes of periodontal diseases in people.
Further, the report states that one challenges in market is paucity of dental workforce. The adoption of dental diagnostic and surgical equipment is comparatively low in China due to many factors. Although the lack of focus on dental care, lack of awareness, and traditional treatment for dental care have limited the usage of dental care facilities in the country, the paucity of the dental workforce remains a major challenge to the market. The adoption rate of dental instruments, dental units, and other dental apparatus in China is not as high as other countries in APAC. According to 2015-2020 healthcare reform - Healthy China 2020, the Chinese government does not mention any specific plans or policies for oral health, even though it is a part of general health, most people in the country pay limited attention to dental hygiene. This limited focus on oral health by the government has resulted in no reimbursement for dental care, thus negatively affecting the demand for the dental industry. This resulted in poor admissions to dental schools.
