Market Overview

The dental syringes market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.1% over the forecast period, 2021-2026.

The dental practice has also been significantly impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As per a research study published in the International Journal of Dentistry, 2020, dental health care personnel are placed in the very high exposure risk category as dentists work close to the patient’s oral cavity by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Additionally, dental procedures involve the use of rotary instruments such as handpieces and scalers, which generate aerosols and can increase the risk of transmission of the SARS-CoV2 virus among patients and healthcare providers. Also, in March 2020, the American Dental Association (ADA) provides guidelines that dental practices should postpone elective dental procedures and provide emergency-only dental services to reserve the healthcare infrastructure and staff for the treatment for COVID-19 patients and simultaneously reduce the transmission of the virus within dental practices. Thus, there is a significant decline in dental practice during the pandemic, which is expected to negatively impact the market over the COVID-19 pandemic.

A dental syringe is a syringe used by dentists to numb various areas of a patient's mouth in preparation for oral care procedures. To avoid needle stick injuries (NSIs) and resulting infections, dental syringes are preferred over needle sticks, which may cause a risk of transmission of bloodborne pathogens to dental health care providers (DHCPs).

The rising incidence of dental and oral diseases due to unhealthy eating habits and lack of vitamins is one of the major growth drivers. Besides, the rising geriatric population prone to various dental conditions is expected to fuel the growth. Many regulating bodies across the globe like Canada and the United States have established guidelines, regulations, and standards aimed at reducing the risk of such needle stick injuries (NSIs). However, the high cost of dental syringes may hinder the growth of this market.

Key Market Trends

The Reusable Dental Syringes Segment is Expected to Witness Significant Growth

Dental professionals significantly adopted reusable dental syringes for administering anesthesia due to greater affordability and their reusable nature. Due to the increasing incidence of dental diseases, the number of patients visiting dental clinics has been on the rise over the years, which in turn, surges the demand for dentistry consumables such as reusable syringes. Another added advantage of adopting reusable dental syringes is that they are eco-friendly and minimize environmental pollution. According to the research article published in The Scientific World Journal, 2020, the global prevalence of periodontal diseases is expected to range from 20% to 50%. Thus, in view of the cost-effectiveness of the reusable dental syringe and the growing burden of dental diseases, the studied segment is expected to witness tremendous growth over the forecast period.

Furthermore, as per the research article published in the International Journal for Environmental Research in Public Health, 2020, the dental procedures that involve the use of air-water syringe and/or rotating/ultrasound/piezo tools are on the high verge of producing aerosols and droplets, and thus, may cause a high rate of viral transmission. Additionally, reusable syringes should be thoroughly autoclaved and sterilized after every use, especially to combat COVID-19 infection. Thus, with the expectation of a high rate of viral transmission with reusable syringes, the studied segment is predicted to be restrained slightly during the pandemic.

Dental Syringes Market Growth

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

North America is expected to hold a dominating position globally in the dental syringes market due to the rising prevalence of dental diseases, the rise in healthcare expenditures, and the presence of key players in the region. The American Dental Association (ADA) estimates that 201,117 dentists are working in dentistry in the United States, as of 2020, with nearly 61.04 dentists working in dentistry per 100,000 American population. Additionally, as per the research study published in the Journal of Dental Research, 2020, about 47% of the population had periodontitis, accounting for 65 million population in the United States, among which about 9% had mild gum disease, 30% moderate disease, and 8.5% severe disease. Thus, the high incidence of dental disease and the presence of a good number of dentists in the United States are expected to drive the growth of the market in North America over the forecast period.

However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, out of 98.9% of respondents to the survey conducted by the American Dental Association in August 2020, only 47.6% reported that the dental practice and business was as usual, but 51.3% had lower patient volume than usual in the United States. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to significantly impact dental practice, which in turn, restrains the dental syringes market in the region.
