The dental surgical instruments market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 5.7%, during the forecast period (2022-2027).

With the emergence of COVID-19, the medical services other than COVID-19 were affected severely due to the restrictions put in place to check the spread of infection due to the SARS-CoV-2 virus in different regions of the world. Several studies are conducted that demonstrate the effect of COVID-19 on dental care. For Instance, the research study in the British Dental Journal’s article titled “The COVID-19 pandemic and dentistry: the clinical, legal and economic consequences-part 2: consequences of withholding dental care” published in December 2020 stated that due to the suspension of routine care in most countries around the world, progression of undiagnosed and managed oral disease can be expected as patients are usually unaware of the development of oral pathosis since it is not visible to them and largely asymptomatic, especially in its early stages. Furthermore, the International Journal of Dentistry’s article titled ‘COVID-19: Changing Trends and Its Impact on Future of Dentistry’ published in May 2020 report that dental health care personnel (DHCP) are in a very high exposure risk category as dentists work in close proximity to the patient’s oral cavity. Also, dental procedures involve the use of rotary instruments such as handpieces and scalers, which generate aerosols. Hence, the dental practices during COVID-19 are largely impacted, which hinders the growth of the market. However, in the long term the market is expected to grow.

The growing burden of dental diseases such as periodontal disease, tooth decay, oral cancer, halitosis, and dental caries among other diseases is driving the market growth. For instance, as per a March 2022 update by the World Health Organization (WHO), it is estimated that oral diseases affect nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide and severe periodontal (gum) disease, which may result in tooth loss, is also very common, with almost 14% of the global population affected. Also, as per the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICO), edentulism is the clinical word for being wholly or partially toothless or having one or more missing teeth. The causes of edentulism in humans are most often cavities, poor oral hygiene, gum disease, bone loss, and other periodontal issues. In addition, as per the 2021 Commonwealth of Australia, 1 in 25 people (aged 15 and over) have no natural teeth left. Hence, increasing dental disorders are expected to increase the market growth. Similarly, initiatives by the government are another factor in market growth. Initiatives are taken by the Government of Spain to make dental care accessible to a large proportion of the population and also boost the growth of the studied market in the country. For instance, in February 2021, the Government of Spain allocated EUR 49 million to expand dental care coverage. Similarly, acquisitions are another factor in market growth. For instance, in April 2021, J. Morita Corp. acquired the business of the Dentsply Sirona Nasu plant in Japan, which manufactures orthodontic and other dental-related products. Such acquisition would increase the market growth in the upcoming period. Therefore, the above mentioned factors are expected to increase the market growth in the upcoming period.

However, the high cost of dental surgical instruments and poor reimbursement policies may hinder the growth of this market.

Key Market Trends

Restorative Dentistry Segment is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share

Dental restoration is a treatment that is used to restore the function, morphology, integrity of missing tooth structures resulting from dental caries, and replacement of such structures with dental implants. The segment growth is accounted to various factors such as the growth in prevalence of dental caries among the population, especially the geriatric population and children, and the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) in numerous dental caries treatments. For instance, Pearl, an AI dental care company in January 2020, launched its ‘Scan Clarity Score’. The Scan Clarity Score addresses the issue of working with low-quality intraoral scans by examining the margin clarity for each patient for dental restorations. The market is also supported by the launch of products by different market players in the region. For Instance, in April 2019 Sonendo launched the GentleWave System in Canada. The GentleWave System is the next evolution in endodontic technology. It helps in debride and disinfect the root canal system even the undetected, un-instrumented spaces with a minimally invasive protocol that leaves more of the tooth structure intact. Additionally, the strategic collaboration among the market players to provide dental care in the regions is also driving the growth of the market. For Instance, in April 2021, Envista Holdings Corporation and Curaeos has signed a partnership aimed at providing value-added solutions and a variety of services to fast-growing network of dental clinics across the Germany. Such partnership between dental clinics and market players are driving the growth of market. Furthermore, to deploy new technologies in the field, the market players are strategically involved in the partnerships and collaborations that drive the growth of the market in the region. For Instance, in July 2021, SpineGaurd headquartered in France strengthen its strategic partnership with ConfiDent ABC. The expanded agreement involves the exchange and sharing of new intellectual property beyond the use of DSG (Dynamic Surgical Guidance) technology in the field of dental implantology.

Hence, due to the above mentioned factors the segment is likely to increase in the future.

North America is Expected to Dominate the Market in the Forecast Period

North America is expected to hold a dominating position globally in the dental surgical instruments market due to the rising prevalence of dental diseases, rise in healthcare expenditures, and the presence of infrastructure in this region. Moreover, as per an August 2021 update by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2019, 64.9% of adults aged 18 and above, had dental visits. The statistics indicate that this percentage of the population visiting dental clinics for examination is contributing to the growth of the market. Also, the National Institute of Health article titled ‘Estimates of Funding for Various Research, Condition, and Disease Categories’ published in June 2021 reported that an estimated USD 638 million annual research support for dental/Oral and Craniofacial Disease based on grants, contracts, and other funding mechanisms used across the National Institutes of Health.​ Additionally, the International Dental Journal’s article titled ‘Risk Indicators of Tooth Loss Among Mexican Adult Population: A Cross-Sectional Study published in February 2021 reports that the prevalence of tooth loss was 57.2% due to tooth decay in Mexico. The study also reports that it is similar to that reported in low-middle income countries. Such a high prevalence of tooth decay and loss generates need for the dental caries treatment products hence drive the growth of market. According to the International Travel Medical Journals article titled ‘Americans are driving to Mexico for dental treatment' published in June 2020 reports that dental facilities in Mexico have been among the first in the world to reopen their doors and welcome patients. Additionally, the article also quoted that Dental Departures, a global dental online travel agency has reported four consecutive weeks of increased appointment bookings along with a 60% increase in traffic. Such increasing dental tourism is driving the growth of the market. Acquisitions are another factor in the market growth. For instance, in June 2021, Dentsply Sirona acquired assets of Propel Orthodontics, including the VPro device. When used as part of an orthodontic treatment plan, this easy-to-use device featuring patented high-frequency vibrational technology can increase patient comfort and may reduce overall treatment time significantly. Hence, such acquisitions with increase the market growth in the upcoming period in the region.

Thus, the abovementioned factors are expected to increase the market growth.
