Market Overview

The Dentures Market is expected to register 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 dentures market is expected to 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 dentures 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 factors driving the growth of the denture market. According to the United Nations' World Aging Population, by 2020, approximately 727 million people will be 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, leading to the healthy growth of the dentures 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 shown encouraging short-term clinical performance, positive patient-related results, and reasonable cost-effectiveness in preliminary trials. Denture production techniques, materials, and workflows could be modernized and streamlined with 3D printing. Such studies will further drive the demand for dentures, driving the market growth.

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

Scope of the Report

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 market and do the same over the forecast period.

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

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 will be 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 the 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 teeth, 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, the availability of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure, and 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 Americans will 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, as per the American Dental Association updates from 2020, more than 5 million United States seniors aged 65 to 74 had complete tooth loss, with nearly 3 million suffering from edentulous. Tooth loss, on the other hand, is primarily a problem for the elderly. This is because 91% of adults aged 20 to 64 have dental caries, with a staggering 27% going untreated. Furthermore, tooth decay is a common cause of tooth loss in many cases. 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, one of the major players in the dentures market. Such acquisitions are expected to rise in the 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 software features an enhanced FullDenture module, which helps facilitate the design of removable single-arch dentures in a guided digital workflow. Such product launches are expected to propel 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.
