Dental Consumables Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2020 - 2025)
Certain factors that are driving the Global Dental Consumables market growth include rising demand for cosmetic dentistry, increasing access to dental facilities, and a growing aging population.
Factors, fueling the dental consumables market, include shifting trends among patient preferences and the growing demand for cosmetic dentistry. Dental crowns and bridges are the key components for growth, in cosmetic dentistry. Women constitute the majority of the population undergoing cosmetic dentistry when compared to men. The demand growth has been accelerated mainly by millennials and baby boomers, with millennials accounting for a growing portion of this revenue. Since this group has surpassed the baby boomers, owing to a large portion of the US population, it is expected to accelerate the percentage of revenue and continue to increase over the coming years. The other factors, such as increasing access to dental facilities, global economic growth, and an increase in the aging population, are driving the market.
However, a large number of the population does not have dental insurance, in comparison to the general health insurance, around the world. Negligence toward dental care is one of the major factors leading to such a small number of dental insurance coverage. It is reported that 50% of the US citizens are without dental insurance, and around 77% of people with dental insurance delay their dental care. This shows that a large number of the population remains ignorant toward dental care and give it the least priority. Due to this factor, people do not have insurance coverage and have to pay out of their pocket for dental treatments. This eventually restrains the dental consumables market. The other factors, such as lack of awareness and apathy toward dental care in developing nations, are hindering the market growth
Key Market Trends
Dental Bur is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share in Product Segment
Dental burs are used during dental procedures to remove decay, and clean and shape the teeth. They are used before fillings or crown insertion procedures. Hence, they are majorly utilized among dentists. With advancements and innovations in technology, dental burs are available in different materials. For disposable dental burs, the risk of a patient-to-patient cross-infection with a contaminated item can be eliminated, when a bur is not used on a subsequent patient. In addition, time-consuming cleaning and sterilization procedures can be eliminated. Dentists tend to ignore the cost and time spent on scrubbing the burs and diamonds, prior to sterilization. Since dental burs are some of the most important devices used in all dental procedures, their demand is expected to continue to increase in the coming years. Other factors driving the market are the growing awareness among people about dental aesthetics, the increased per capita income, and the increasing affordability of dental procedures. With the increased use of adhesive composites, the factors hindering the market growth of dental burs are the controversies associated with the use of burs or diamond abrasives for routine cavity preparation.
Europe Dominates the Market and is Expected to do the Same in the Forecast Period
Europe is dominating the dental consumables market, as the geriatric population is increasing in this region, along with the increased funding for the improvement and expansion of oral healthcare facilities, across the region. According to the 2018 report of the World Health Organization (WHO), in Europe, around 20%–90% of six year-old children were affected by dental caries. At the age of 12, an average of 0.5–3.5 teeth were found to be affected by dental caries, and approximately 100% of adults were observed to be affected by the same. Severe periodontal (gum) infection is found in 5%–20% of middle-aged (35–44 years) adults in Europe and in up to 40% of older people (65–74 years). Dental caries and severe periodontal disease are major contributors to the loss of natural teeth. About 30% of Europeans aged 65–74 years have no natural teeth, which reduces their function and quality of life. Meanwhile, Asia-Pacific is expected to record a substantial growth over the forecast period.
The dental consumables market is highly competitive and consists of a number of major players. Companies, like 3M Company, Dentsply Sirona, Henry Schein Inc., Hu-Friedy Mfg Co., Ivoclar Vivadent AG, Nakanishi Inc., Patterson Companies Inc., Ultradent Products Inc., and Young Innovations Inc., among others, hold the substantial market share in the market studied.
