Drivers – Dental Caries Market

·         Increase prevalence of dental caries

There is an increased rate of prevalence of dental caries among the general population around the world due to improper lifestyle habits and the increasing sugar of consumptions. Studies have shown that sugar consumption remains a moderate risk factor for caries even when populations have adequate exposure to fluoride, and that exposure to fluoride coupled with a reduction of sugar intake has an additive effect on caries reduction. Foods and drinks containing dietary sugars (i.e., sugars which have been added to food plus sugars naturally present in honey, fruit juices and syrup) should be recognized and the frequency of their intake especially between meals should be reduced. According to World Health Organization, there were approximately 3.58 billion people having dental caries, almost more than half of these cases could have been avoided with the availability of proper medical treatment.


·         Technological Advancements in the Cosmetic Industry & Rising consumer awareness

Introduction of several new products including dental lasers, dental implants, and dental equipment and improvement of minimally invasive cosmetic dental procedure has permitted a lot of patients to undergo treatments that they did not prefer earlier, which is helping in the growth of the market. Utilization of novel techniques and rising demand for dental implants and orthodontic appliances in the developing markets has helped in the market growth. The rising consumer awareness and growing medical tourism is also contributing in the growth of the market.

Challenges – Dental Caries Market

·         Lack of reimbursement for dental procedures and treatments

Dental procedures are conducted with the intention of improving aesthetic appearance of a patient; hence, they do not qualify as primary healthcare procedures. Insurance companies and government agencies do not regard cosmetic procedures as essential and thus not many reimbursement options are available for the treatment of dental caries. Lack of awareness among the rural population & unavailability of skilled professionals or dentists in developing and undeveloped economies can also hinder the growth of the dental caries market.
