Oral Care Market Forecasts to 2028 – Global Analysis By Type (Cordless, Countertop), Product (Toothpastes, Denture Care Fixtures), Application, and By Geography
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Oral Care Market is accounted for $47.13 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $66.76 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. Oral care products are intended to cleanse the oral cavity, freshen the breath, and maintain good oral hygiene. Maintaining healthy gums, teeth, and tongue needs good dental or oral care. Bad breath, dry mouth, cold sores, decay, and thrush are all manageable oral issues with correct diagnosis and oral care products.
People are focusing on oral hygiene more than ever before because of the rising prevalence of dental caries. According to World Health Organization, The Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 estimated that oral diseases affect close to 3.5 billion people worldwide, with caries of permanent teeth being the most common condition. Globally, it is estimated that 2 billion people suffer from caries of permanent teeth and 520 million children suffer from caries of primary teeth. The growing awareness regarding the importance of maintaining oral hygiene has led to a rise in expenditure on dental healthcare, which is augmenting the oral care market.
Rising incidence of dental and gum related diseases
There has been an increase in the occurrence of dental conditions such as bad breath, tooth decay, mouth cancer, and others in the past few years. This has given rise to the requirement for oral care items. Tooth decay and periodontal diseases are the most widespread chronic diseases worldwide and constitute a significant global public health challenge. Furthermore, factors such as rising awareness regarding health & maintaining oral hygiene of people, the escalating number of dental clinics & oral cosmetic stores along with the growing income of the population will drive the growth of the market.
Effects experienced because of few ingredients
Utilization of certain additives such as abrasive agents and humectants in the toothpaste and mouthwash items for purpose of improving the taste & color of these items may prompt different allergic reactions to the teeth & gum. This largely impacts the demand for such items. Also, intense rivalry from the local players in the market with their competitive pricing restrains the market growth.
Increasing number of dental spas
Many dentist specialists are focusing on providing aesthetic spa treatments along with different regular oral caries to cater to the additional personal care needs of the patients. This can reduce the patient’s dental-related anxiety triggers during the dental operation process which subsequently drives the demand for related dental cosmetic items. Also, the provision of the various 4D-based video & image visuals at the dental spa clinics has supported the creation of a luxury experience for the patients.
Lack of consumer awareness for herbal products
Few developed regions are not aware of herbal oral care products. The idea of herbal oral care products gained momentum in India. The top purchaser goods market player of India introduced herbal and organic oral care products in the Indian market. Gradually, the Asia-Pacific region has begun to accept this kind of product. Thus, the lack of consumer awareness for herbal products in a few countries is acting as a challenge to the growth of the oral care market.
The cordless segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The cordless segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth owing to the increasing use of in-home care. Apart from the easy usage and portability of these products, they are also comparatively cheaper than countertop devices. Furthermore, some cordless oral irrigators include new air pressured water flossing technique that minimizes the requirement of water refills, allowing higher convenience to consumers.
The home segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The home segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period as most patients with more than moderate consciousness of dental hygiene opt for home-use oral irrigators. Attributable to increasing awareness about bleeding gums caused by string floss and the challenge of maintaining dental hygiene, home-use oral irrigators, prominently known as water floss, are being increasingly adopted.
Region with highest share:
Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period because of growing dental tourism in major Asian markets, the increasing focus of prominent players on emerging Asian countries; rising healthcare expenditure combined with the increasing disposable income, and the growing number of dental clinics; and the rising awareness regarding oral healthcare are driving the oral care market in the Asia Pacific region.
Region with highest CAGR:
North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to rising consumer spending on oral healthcare products. Additionally, the growing prevalence of oral-related diseases in countries such as Canada, and Mexico is further driving the demand for such products. According to the statistics presented by the World Health Organization (WHO), in Mexico, new lip or oral cancer cases have been estimated to be in 2017 in 2018, 1.1% up from the previous year.
