The dental market is expected to confirm a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period (2022-2027).

Dental services are particularly focused on the current epidemic of COVID-19 as dental procedures are one of the most powerful sources of transmission. According to a study published in BMC Oral Health, entitled 'COVID-19 Risk Transmission and Dental Procedures for Dentistry: a systematic review' in October 2020, SARS-CoV2 transmission to a dentist was expected to occur through air, droplets, and contact. In addition, the American Dental Association (ADA) issued guidelines for a dental emergency and non-emergency care in March 2020. According to the ADA, Orthodontic procedures other than those with severe pain, infection, trauma, toothpaste removal, and restorative dental treatment, which includes the treatment of asymptomatic carious lesions and beauty dental procedures, were classified as non-emergency. However, tooth decay, dental cement, pericoronitis, etc., were listed under emergency dental procedures during the COVID-19 epidemic. Therefore, due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic and the high risk of viral transmission through dental procedures, the dental market is expected to have an impact during this epidemic.

The growing burden of oral diseases and oral cancer, worldwide, is a major factor contributing to the growth of the CAD dental market. For example, according to a report by the World Health Organization in March 2022, 3.5 billion people are estimated to have oral infections worldwide.

In addition, the increase in the number of older people and the increasing number of dental clinics and dentists providing high quality dental care are some of the factors driving the growth of the dental market. According to the United Nations' World Aging Population, by 2020, approximately 727 million people were 65 years of age or older, worldwide, and this figure is expected to double to USD 1.5 billion by 2050. Oral health is directly related to aging through interaction. of biological, behavioral, and socio-economic factors, and as a result, leads to a decline in oral health among the adult population. As the geriatric rate is expected to witness a growing trend in the coming years, globally, the demand for dental procedures is expected to increase, which in turn will lead to a healthy growth of the dental market in the forecast period.

In addition, according to the study published in BMC Oral Health, titled '3D printed complete removable dental prostheses: a narrative review' in November 2020, digital dentures have showed encouraging short-term clinical performance, positive patient-related results, and reasonable cost-effectiveness in preliminary trials. Denture production techniques, materials, and workflows could be modernised and streamlined with 3D printing. Such studies will further drive the demand for dental dentures, driving the market growth.

However, high cost of dentures and availability of alternatives in the market such as dental implants, overdentures, and dental bridges are expected to hinder the market growth.

Key Market Trends

Complete Dentures Segment is Expected to Hold a Major Share During the Forecast Period.

The complete dentures segment is expected to hold a significant share in the dentures market and is expected to do the same over the forecast period.

The rise in prevalence of edentulism, rise in the elderly population, and rise in technological advancement for the development of complete dentures, among others is the factors, expected to drive the growth of this segment.

For instance, according to the study published in the Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care, titled 'The epidemiology of edentulism and the associated factors: A literature Review' in April 2020, age is a significant component in edentulism epidemiology; it is apparent that the older age group is the most afflicted and exhibits the physical characteristics that edentulism might cause.

Additionally, the rising geriatric population and an increasing number of dental clinics and practitioners providing large-level dental care services are the other factors driving the growth of this segment. According to the United Nations' World Ageing Population, in 2020, there are approximately 727 million persons aged 65 years or above, globally, and this number is expected to double to 1.5 billion in 2050.

Furthermore, according to the article published in Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care, titled 'The epidemiology of edentulism and the associated factors: A literature Review' in April 2020, the overall prevalence of edentulism was found to be 16.3% in India and 9% in China. Such a high prevalence of edentulism will lead to increased adoption of complete dentures to alternate their teeth function, driving this segment growth.

Therefore, owing to the above mentioned factors, the segment is expected to hold a significant share.

North America Holds a Major Share and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period

North America holds a major share in the dentures market and is expected to witness the same growth over the forecast period.

The growing burden of dental diseases and the availability of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure, along with the increasing adoption of advanced dental treatment procedures, are major factors driving the growth of the dentures market in North America. According to the American Cancer Society, in 2022, approximately 54,000 American population are estimated to be diagnosed with oral cavity or oropharyngeal cancer, and nearly 11,230 of these people are estimated to die of oral cancers in the United States.

Additionally, according to the study published in the Journal of American Dental Association, titled 'Update on the prevalence of untreated caries in the US adult population, 2017-2020' in December 2021, untreated caries was reported to be prevalent in 21.3 percent of the population of the United States. Coronal and root caries were found to be 17.9% and 10.1 percent of the time, respectively. Untreated caries affects more than one in every five adults in the United States. Such high burden of dental caries and related conditions will drive the growth of the market in this region due to the rise in adoption of dentures. Thus, the growing burden of dental disorders is expected to propel the studied market growth in the region.

Furthermore, the technological advancements in intraoral scanners and CAD provide multiple benefits, ranging from safety to improved treatment outcomes. There has been a growing inclination of the American population toward dental CAD, as tooth repair procedures can be completed in less than a day, and no further or repetitive dental appointments may be required. Additionally, in April 2020, Align Technology Inc., completed the acquisition of exocad Global Holdings GmbH, which is one of the major players in the dentures market. Such acquisitions are expected to rise in adoption of dentures, driving the market growth in this region.

Furthermore, in November 2021, Exocad launched the ChairsideCAD 3.0 a CAD software designed for chairside, single-visit dentistry in North America. Such softwares features an enhanced FullDenture module, which helps facilitate the design of removable single-arch dentures in a guided digital workflow. Such product launches is expected to propell the market growth in this region.

Thus, the increasing number of dental problems and technological advancements are expected to increase the growth of the dentures market in North America.
