According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growth in number of dentists and dental practices. Dental chairs are commonly used in dental care establishments. Hence, many hospitals and dental clinics are acquiring technologically advanced dental chairs to increase the efficiency and safety of their dental procedures. Hospitals and clinics are adopting dental chairs due to technological advancements, increasing healthcare expenditure in developing countries, and increasing prevalence of dental diseases. The growth of the global dental chairs market is driven by the increase in the number of dentists and dental practices.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High cost of advanced dental chairs. In the US, the incomes of dentists have declined during the last decade. To establish a dental clinic in the country, it costs more than $250,000. Additionally, the median overhead for all dental practices in the country is extremely high. Hence, dentists are reluctant to invest in advanced dental chairs. The average cost of an advanced dental chair is more than $7,000. The high cost of advanced dental chairs and their maintenance can result in significant costs for end-users. Customers from some developing countries have low awareness about dental chairs. They also have low purchasing power. Thus, the high cost of advanced dental chairs is affecting their adoption.
