Market Overview

The UAE Dental Devices Market is expected to witness a CAGR of 7.15% over the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the UAE dental devices market. The lockdown restrictions and supply chain disruptions in the first quarter of 2020 negatively impacted the market, but the pandemic also created growth opportunities in the country. For instance, as per a 2020 article titled, “Post COVID-19 lockdown: measures and practices for dental institutes”, resuming regular clinical activities at dental premises after the COVID-19 lockdown or post COVID-19 is likely to be a challenge for all dental institutes as dental practices are advised to establish a sensible workforce shift schedule, improve ventilation levels, reduce dental aerosol-generating procedures, and develop comprehensive guidance to healthcare workers to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

Certain factors accelerating the growth of this market include increasing awareness on oral care, increasing incidences of dental diseases, and innovation in dental products in the United Arab Emirates.

Innovation in dental products has been an impactful factor shaping the UAE dental devices market positively. In the past decade, the major focus in dentistry has been toward dental innovations to improve oral health through a combination of engineering, art, science, and technology. Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Milling (CAD/CAM) is a technological innovation that has revolutionized dental care and patient experience.

Some other factors that could potentially impact in proliferating the market growth are the increasing number of initiatives adopted by the government authorities and health organizations pertaining to the enhancement of the treatment for dental disorders, increasing demand for dental corrections with the help of novel treatments, increasing demand for aesthetic treatments, a growing number of dental clinics and practitioners providing large-level dental care services, and the rising geriatric population in the United Arab Emirates. For instance, as per the 2019 Annual Health Statistic Book by the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP), the total number of dental clinics visitors in Dubai for 2019 was 1,089,054; about 53.3% of them were females, and 46.7% were males, out of which 35.6% were Emirati.

Moreover, many market players are engaged in inorganic and organic strategies, including expansions, product launches, acquisitions, collaborations, mergers, and partnerships to establish a strong presence and expand their geographical reach. For instance, between October 24-29th, 2021, AB Dental International Implantology Master Class, Dubai 2021, was hosted with the Gulf Medical University (GMU), UAE.

Thus, the studied market is expected to witness growth due to these factors. However, the high cost of the surgeries can impact the growth of the UAE dental devices market.

Key Market Trends

The Crown and Bridge Sub-segment in the General and Diagnostic Equipment Segment is Expected to Witness Highest Growth Rate

The crown and bridge sub-segment in the general and diagnostic equipment segment of the UAE dental devices market is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

A dental bridge is used to fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth. The crown or bridge is manufactured manually or with the help of CAD/CAM technology. Currently, CAD/CAM software is gaining popularity, owing to its accuracy in determining the dimensions of the crown or bridge. This software tool also speeds up the process and reduces the cost of treatment.

Many factors demand the need for crown and bridges, such as high sensitivity to biting pressure and temperature, tooth decay, missing tooth, or the patient having a removable partial denture and wanting a more permanent solution. These factors collectively drive the growth of the crown and bridge segment. The crown and bridges segment of the dental caries treatment market is anticipated to flourish more on account of the increasing prevalence of tooth decay and dental caries among the population in the United Arab Emirates. The UAE citizens are very specific about their appearance. There is an increase in demand for dental crowns and bridges, further augmenting the growth of the studied segment in the country. Thus, due to the factors mentioned above, the dental crown and bridge segment in the dental devices market is expected to grow during the forecast period.
