Market Overview

The Japan Dental Equipment Market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period, 2022-2027.

With the emergence of COVID-19, medical services other than COVID-19 were affected severely due to the restrictions put in place to check the spread of infection due to the SARS-CoV-2 virus in Japan, which impacted the work of the researchers and pharmaceutical companies, impacting the new ongoing diagnostic and treatment procedures for dental caries which impacted the market. The number of people visiting hospitals decreased from April to May 2020, when the COVID-19 cases were high. These decreased cases were approximately 20% for adults and 40% for those aged under 18 years as compared to those in 2019. However, these cases increased from June 2020 to December 2020 as the reported cases of COVID-19 were fewer during this span. This has impacted the dental consultation during the pandemic outbreak hence leaving an impact on the market. However, there are various studies conducted to demonstrate the ways to reduce aerosol generation during the dental procedure so that the dental practices can be performed without getting the risk of infection. This has positively impacted the growth of the dental equipment market. Hence, the above factors indicate that COVID-19 had a huge impact on the studied market.

The factors impacting the growth of the dental equipment market in Japan are the increasing burden of oral diseases and aging popluation, growing demand for cosmetic dentistry, technological advancements in dentistry.

The dental health awareness in Japan has dramatically increased and public health efforts are expected to result in better dental care for more kids in the future. However, there has been insufficient improvement in oral health status in adults. The prevalence of dental caries and periodontal disease in middle-aged individuals has not changed in recent years. As these are the major reasons for tooth loss, their prevention in adults is important and yet a major challenge. According to the study "Dental Caries in Children Under Five Years of Age in Mongolia" published in July 2020, the caries prevalence rate in Japan in 2016 was 39.0%, and it increased to 78.0% in 2017 and 82.6% in 2019. Thus, the increasing prevalence rate of tooth caries in the country is expected to drive the market during the study period.

According to the September 2021 report published by the Internal Affairs Ministry of Japan, as of September 2021, the estimated number of people of age 65 years or more in Japan was 36.4 million, an increase of 220,000 from the previous year. Also, as per the same source, the proportion of older persons in the total population of Japan increased to a record 29.1%, the highest rate among 201 nations and regions worldwide. Hence, the presence of high number of geriatric population and continuous increase in their number is expected to play a significant role in the growth of the dental equipment in Japan over forecast period.

In addition, Tokuyama Corporation's wholly owned subsidiary Tokuyama Dental Corporation decided to release OMNICHROMA light-cured dental filling composite resin in Japan on October 21, 2020, as a special treatment material upon receiving approval from the relevant Japanese authorities. OMNICHROMA has received high marks worldwide for its wide color matching ability enables eliminating shade taking procedure. Thus, launh of such dental equipments had boosted the market growth and is expected to continue during the study period.

In addition to this, Japanese women are opting for dental procedures to enhance their appearance, which helps in increasing the overall market. In recent years, a larger number of women have undergone dental procedures in Japan.

Hence, an increasing number of disposable incomes has encouraged dental procedures, which is currently driving the dental equipment market. However, excessive costs involved in provate health insurance and negligence towrads oral health is expected to hidner the market growth.

Key Market Trends

Dental Implants Segment is Expected to Hold Major Market Share in the Japan Dental Equipment Market

Dental implants are surgical fixtures that substitute the damaged or missing tooth along with its root in the jawbone, which later on fuses with the jawbone to function like a natural tooth. These implants play a vital role in supporting dental prostheses such as dentures, bridges, and crowns. Increasing incidences of dental decay cases within the population are anticipated to be one of the prominent drivers for segment growth.

Dental implants based on materials can be into two types: titanium implants and zirconium implants. Titanium dental implants are known to be compatible with body tissues during healing. The titanium surface of the implant fuses with the surrounding bone through the osseointegration process while healing, which can take 3 to 6 months.

Owing to the increased prevalence of tooth decay, there have also been various technological innovations in the market. For instance, Holoeyes, Inc., in cooperation with Dental Prediction Co., Ltd., and SoftBank Corp. began trials in July 2021 to verify the effectiveness of using XR, which stands for augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR) technologies with 5G networks to support dental surgery. The trial fully utilized these technologies to assist with dental implants, a surgical procedure for replacing missing teeth. Thus, with the rising adoption of technology with dental implants, the accuracy of procedures is expected to increase, which will drive the segment growth.

Furthermore, the adoption of key initiatives by major market players such as partnerships and acquisitions will strengthen their dental implant portfolio in Japan. For instance, in August 2021, Kyocera Corporation entered into a business partnership with Osteon Digital Japan, the Japanese branch of Osteon Medical for continuous sales transactions, beginning sales of a customized dental prosthesis for implants utilizing Osteon Medical’s digital technology.

Additionally, in January 2020, Implant Solutions PTY, LTD established Osteon Digital Japan Inc. in Osaka City to develop total dental implant solutions in response to the rapidly advancing digitalization and to provide customized dental technology for Japanese patients by setting up a manufacturing base in Japan. Thus, expanding presence of global players in Japan indicates that country is proving a huge potential for them to grow, thereby propelling the market during the study period.

Thus, owing to the above-mentioned factors, the studied segment is expected to grow during the study period.
