Market Dynamics

The global dental infection control market growth is driven by the increasing use of air/water syringes and dental instruments to create droplets of saliva, water, and blood that lead to dental infection. An increase in the prevalence of dental caries is one of the key factors driving the market growth

The increasing burden of dental infection and other periodontal diseases

The rising burden of dental infection and other periodontal diseases, growing demand for dental care facilities and dental surgical procedures, increasing dental care personnel, and technological advancements are some of the factors prevailing in the growth of this market. For instance, in 2019, Midmark Corporation introduced Midmark M9 and M11 Steam Sterilizers, an innovative product with the highest efficiency in sterilization. Consequently, the adoption of novel technologies for infection controls such as DAC, ultrasonic indicators and cleansers, and H₂O₂ photolysis, radiation sterilization techniques are providing an upthrust to the market growth.  

The rise of cosmetic dentistry is driving the market growth

Cosmetic dentistry is one of the emerging segments in the market and is gaining popularity due to the increasing focus on dental tourism which is significantly driving the demand for aesthetic and perfect teeth. Cosmetic dentistry thus will be a high-demand segment in the future and is expected to offer immense growth opportunities during the forecast period. Moreover, stringent implementation of Infection control programs and access to medical reimbursement policies will further boost the market growth.

Risks associated with low per capita usage are likely to hinder the market growth

However, low per capita usage of dental services in emerging markets and stringent government regulation will hinder the growth of the market.  Also, the large number of unskilled dentists or traditional dentists in emerging countries such as China and India is hampering the market growth in the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Dental institutions across the world are reeling from the consequences of COVID-19. As oral health care providers, have been trained on the prevention of aerosol transmissible diseases, but still grappling with many unknown factors regarding COVID-19. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Dental Association (ADA), and local state agencies are releasing updates on guidelines for dentists and patients, no official information exists for dental institutions on how to effectively follow the recommended guidelines. The doctors are staying careful when it comes to using dental equipment for treatment in this pandemic, as even a small slip in following protocols and taking precautions can be costly. With the majority of the practices in some countries failing to adhere to strict hygiene protocol, sanitization and sterilization of dental equipment at clinics are widely absent, further increasing the risks in performing emergency dental procedures. Owing to this, the market could witness sluggish growth during the entire year. Thus, the pandemic has hampered the market in the forecast period.

Segment Analysis

The equipment segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2021-2029)  

Growth in dental problems and rising demand for efficient surgical dental care services are the primary factors driving market growth whereas the rising trend of the cosmetic industry is also a factor expanding market growth. Moreover increasing preference for dental consumables such as crowns and bridges over implants will drive the demand for the market in the forecast period. Owing to the rising aging population, there has been a considerable surge in the number of dental implants and oral surgeries performed. This factor has been considered a critical factor behind the growth of the market that would continue to the analysis timeframe.

Besides, there is a decline in manual dexterity and a surge in co‐morbidity and medications affecting the oral cavity. Hence, dental care in aged care facilities can be low, and access to dental professionals is difficult. Apart from this, several other risk factors are also present, such as poor oral hygiene, smoking, medication, diabetes, and hereditary conditions, which are also connected to augmenting dental diseases. Many population-based surveys in the United States and Germany demonstrate an elevated dental caries experience among the elderly population. Thus, it has been found that the number of older people is rising rapidly in all industrialized countries, thus, contributing to the rise in the dental equipment segment.

High treatment costs for orthodontic procedures and associated dentist consultation charges, x-rays, scans, and other tests, in North America and Europe. To offset these high out-of-pocket costs, a rising number of people are opting for medical tourism in emerging healthcare destinations such as India, Turkey, Hungary, and others. Dental tourism in the above-mentioned countries is witnessing lucrative growth owing to factors such as low labor and fixed costs and minimum government intervention.

For instance, Hungary has emerged as the top destination in Europe for dental tourism with approximately 7,000 visitors every year. The low price of these procedures is the key factor attributed to this growth. Also, root canal treatment in the U.S. starts from USD 550 while in Hungary it is only around USD 69. Zirconium crowns cost over USD 1,250 in the U.S. while it costs only USD 440 in Hungary.

  • Sterilization Equipment: Sterilization is the method of removing biological agents or life forms that involves transmissible agents including spore forms, unicellular eukaryotic organisms, fungi, bacteria, and spore forms existing in a particular surface, liquid, medication, region, etc. In the dental industry, sterilization is an inevitable method with the sterility and efficacy of the sterilization equipment as primary variables. The serious issues of overutilization of unsterilized equipment such as lethal hepatitis and HIV threatening public health, emphasize the importance of effective infection control. Sterilization equipment is thus a crucial part of the health care setting owing to its extensive utilization for disinfecting and aiding in reprocessing tools and devices. With governments engaged in introducing a productive measure to uplift and improve public health, the scope of the application of medical services, tools, and devices has expanded significantly.  Recent pandemics such as the Ebola virus have emphasized the crucial need for a hygienic environment and proper administration of medical faculties.
  • Cleaning and Disinfection Equipment: Dentists use endoscopes to diagnose and treat numerous medical disorders. Even though endoscopes represent a valuable diagnostic and therapeutic tool in modern medicine and the incidence of infection associated with their use reportedly is very low (about 1 in 1.8 million procedures). High-level disinfection can be expected to destroy all microorganisms, although when high numbers of bacterial spores are present, a few spores might survive. Thus cleaning and disinfection are mandatory for the equipment used in dental work. This factor drives the growth of the segment in the forecast period.
  • Packaging Equipment: Growing demand for advanced safety and precaution due to the rising prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic is boosting the growth of the packaging equipment segment. Additionally, rising awareness about maintaining equipment quality by improving its packaging is encouraging the adoption of the packaging equipment and is likely to propel the growth of the packaging equipment segment.

Hospitals and clinics are expected to dominate the dental infection control market during the forecast period

For an established dental practice, more than 70% of new patient growth should come from internal patient referrals in hospitals and clinics. Yet existing patients don’t often view the dental practice as a growing business in search of more patients. The key contributors include technological advancements, rising demand for cosmetic surgeries, and growing geriatric population, and the number of dentists and dental clinics

Growth in dental problems and rising demand for efficient surgical dental care services are the primary factors driving segment growth whereas the rising trend of the cosmetic industry is also a factor expanding the growth. Moreover increasing preference for dental consumables such as crowns and bridges over implants will propel the demand for the market in coming years. This factor is driving the growth of the segment in the forecast period.
