Market Overview

The United Kingdom Dental Devices Market is expected to register a CAGR of nearly 6.1% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The health, social, economic, and educational systems have all faced substantial challenges as a result of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) epidemic. While COVID-19 produces very severe illness, and in some cases death, mainly in the elderly group population. According to the General Dental Council United Kingdom in May 2021, during the COVID-19 pandemic, in the United Kingdom, access to dental services was severely impacted by COVID-19 with the backlog of patients in need of oral treatment and cared due to reduced capacity in the system. Adding to that, the impact of COVID-19 has been more severe in the population who were already more likely to have poorer health outcomes, including people from ethnic minority backgrounds, people with disabilities, and those living in more deprived areas. According to the House of Commons of the United Kingdom, On 25 March 2020, in reaction to the pandemic, routine dentistry, including orthodontics, was prohibited in National Health Service (NHS) dental offices. Following that, NHS dental offices in England were instructed to reopen on June 8 "for all face-to-face services" and have since stayed open. In addition, on 4 January 2021, United Kingdom government guidance published regarding which businesses can remain open in England during the new national lockdown specifically lists “medical and dental services”.Due to the aforementioned factors, the market declined during the COVID-10 pandemic, but it is anticipated that it will pick up during the forecast period.

Some of the factors responsible for the market's growth are the growing aging population, increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry, increasing incidence of dental diseases, and innovation in dental products. Due to the increasing aging population, there has been an increase in dental implants and oral surgeries being performed. According to the Office for National Statistics 2021, there are nearly 12 million people in the United Kingdom aged 65 and over, with an additional 8.6 million expected in the next 50 years. By 2030, one in every five people in the United Kingdom will be 65 or older. The 85+ age group is the fastest growing, with the population expected to double to 3.2 million by mid-2041. As a result, it has been discovered that dental treatment in facilities for the elderly is subpar and that finding a dentist is challenging. Other risk factors that are linked to the rise in dental illnesses include smoking, poor oral hygiene, diabetes, medication, and inherited problems. Thus, it is being found that the number of elderly people is growing rapidly in all industrialized countries and, thus, contributing to the increase in the United Kingdom dental devices market.

Moreover, one of the main factors considered to drive the United Kingdom dental devices market is the shifting dynamics of patients’ choice and increase in the demand for cosmetic dentistry, and increasing awareness among the population regarding oral health. For instance, every year on 15 May to 15 June, running an oral health campaign in the United Kingdom is National Smile Month. It is sponsored by the Oral Health Foundation and emphasizes three main points: using fluoride-containing toothpaste twice daily, morning and night, limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages, and scheduling routine dental checkups. Therefore, these initiatives aid in persuading people to seek out cosmetic dentistry and oral hygiene, which is likely to spur the growth of the market under consideration.

Furthermore, growing product launches by the key market players support the market growth over the forecast period. For Instance, in September 2021, EgoDent Dental and Medical is the first in the United Kingdom to install the ACUSON Juniper Select ultrasound system from Siemens Healthineers. EgoDent enters a new phase with the deployment of the system as it broadens its scope of services beyond normal dentistry to include the provision of medical imaging, bringing diagnostic services closer to the community. Similarly, in October 2020, Straumann and 3Shape reported the full integration of the 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanning workflow with the Straumann Group’s software solutions and services. This means that 3Shape’s TRIOS intra-oral scanners can connect seamlessly with Straumann’s orthodontic, restorative, implant, chairside, and digital dentistry solutions at the click of a button. Thus, all aforementioned factors are expected to boost the market growth over the forecast period. However, negligence towards oral health and excessive cost is involved in private health insurance.

Key Market Trends

Endodontic Segment is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share Over the Forecast Period

Endodontic treatments are mainly focused on diagnosing tooth pain and performing root canal treatment and other procedures related to the interior of the tooth. The treatments specialize in saving the tooth as much as possible. They are also designed to go deep into the tooth, where the infection or inflammation resides, and to remove the infected tissue to alleviate the pain.

Endodontic surgery is most often an elective procedure, it might be the only treatment approach to address a patient's symptoms. In such cases, clinicians might be at a greater risk of exposure to aerosols. According to a research study by Jamie Daly et al., published in Community Dental Health Journal 2020, in the United Kingdom, as the incidence of COVID-19 infection fell, there was a phased re-opening of dental practices, with considerable variation in the guidance given for safe reopening. Upon re-opening, two-thirds of United Kingdom practices runned at less than a quarter of pre-pandemic capacity, with 78% citing the post-treatment procedure for the clearance of infectious aerosols after aerosol-generating procedures as the greatest obstacle to increasing activity.

However, growing prevalence of dental diseases is expected to drive the demand for Endodontic devices. For Instance, according to the Public Health England’s report titled ‘National Dental Epidemiology Programme for England: Oral Health Survey of 3-year-old Children, 2020’ published in March 2021, 10.7% of 3-year-old children in the United Kingdom have already experienced dental decay despite having had their back teeth for just 1 or 2 years. Among the 10.7% of children with dental decay experience, each had on average three affected teeth. Such a large number oftooth decay generates demand for endodontics in the region.

Thus, all aforementioned factors expected to drive the growth of the market.
