Dental Chair Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The size of the global dental chair market was valued at USD 584.02 Million in 2024. This figure is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.04%, to reach USD 711.91 million by 2029.

Current Scenario of the Global Dental Chair Market

A dental chair is a device specially designed to provide support to the whole body like a recliner. It is articulated and allows the dentist to adjust the angle of inclination in any position. They allow a dentist to perform dental procedures such as exams, extractions, and oral surgery. The first chair dates back to 1868, when an all-wood chair with a reclining footrest was patented for use in the dentist's office. Modern chairs have antimicrobial films to reduce the risk of infection. They have intraoral cameras to allow better pictures and thin backs to allow better access. The focus by market players such as DENTSPLY Sirona and A-Dec on innovation, product advancements associated with increasing dentist practices are some of the major growth factors for the dental chair industry.

The most common dental health problems are dental caries, periodontal disease, and malocclusions. Tooth decay or cavities causes teeth to break due to bacterial acids; cause dental pain; difficulty eating, and require dental fillings. Tooth decay is the most common dental disorder and is caused by poor eating habits. Periodontal disease is an infection of the gum tissue caused by poor brushing habits. Although malocclusions are problems with tooth misalignment, they result in a perceived lack of aesthetic appeal and digestive health issues.


Y-O-Y growth in the prevalence of dental disorders, coupled with increased dental health awareness, will dramatically increase the number of patients undergoing dental examinations or procedures, which will drive the growth of the global dental chair market during the forecast period.

The increasing need for patient comfort during surgeries is also driving product demand and growth. Therefore, significant improvements are made to dental chairs to provide patients with optimal comfort during surgeries. Dental chairs in use today can be adjusted to suit the needs of the patient and surgeon and the position of the light. Another important driver for the market's growth is the increased awareness of optimal health and oral hygiene. Various organizations are increasingly focusing on oral hygiene awareness. With this in mind, the National Oral Health Program (NOHP), an initiative of the Indian Dental Association (IDA), raises awareness of the importance of optimal oral health and well-being in general. As part of the national cancer control program, oral cancer problems are being addressed at the national level. The growing world population increases the growth potential of this market.

The increasing prevalence of oral diseases and dental disorders worldwide due to poor eating habits, high sugar content in the daily diet, smoking, family history, and infections, such as AIDS or HIV, stimulates the demand for various dental equipment. This, in turn, drives the demand for dental exams, which drives the market. Additionally, technological advancements in dental chairs are expected to drive growth during the forecast period. These dental chairs are unified with computer controls and electronics with memory functions. The incorporation of circuits allowing the assimilation of several devices with a single control pedal makes it possible to speed up the tasks of dental surgeons. Today, the most advanced dental units are equipped with handpieces, intraoral cameras, ultrasonic cleaners, curing lights, and other attached tools.

Additionally, the growing pediatric patient population, rising dental disorders, and growing awareness of dental health are likely to escalate the market growth. Advancements in technology regarding dental chairs are likely to influence the forecast period. Unhealthy food habits such as consuming chocolates, ice creams, high sugar usage in their routine diet, and excess intake of sweets foster the market.


However, the high cost associated with the dental chair is a major factor that is expected to limit the growth of the target market. Issues associated with dental insurance reimbursement are expected to hamper the market growth over the period. The launch of new dental chairs, which have to be manufactured with strict regulations and patient comfort, is significant, limiting the growth. The absence of skilled dentists at the time of performing tooth surgery or treating any dental problems in patients, and having less knowledge about the dental chair and unavailability of acceptable infrastructure, particularly in low economic countries, restrict the dental chair market growth throughout the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global dental chair market

The presence of coronavirus has reached every corner of the world and imposed significant challenges to the dental industry. The outrage of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) efficiently shut down nearly 200000 dental hospitals and clinics. Dental care providers and surgeons are at high risk of contracting and transmitting the disease. During the pandemic time, patients were not ready to visit the dental clinics due to fear of getting exposed to the virus. The dental chair manufacturers have paused their production due to the lockdown instructions and shortage of workforce. The adoption of Tele-dentistry has seen a spike in the market growth in the recent past, but the growth rate of the dental chair market had seen a slight drop in the first half of 2020. Nonetheless, the market is forecasted to join with its growth path by the end of 2021.
