Global Dental Services Market Drivers:

The growing patient population suffering from dental diseases is one of the key factors propelling the growth of the dental services market. The patient population suffering from dental diseases such as cavities, gum disease, oral cancer and others has been growing rapidly in the last few years and the need for diagnosis, treatment, and management of these conditions is also growing equally. The World Health Organization (WHO) says dental caries is one of the preventable dental diseases and affects approximately 60% to 90% of school-going children and almost 100% of adults. As per the data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), periodontal (gum) is one of the major reasons behind tooth loss in adults and almost half of the adults suffer from this. Cavities and gum diseases are the most common among all dental diseases. Factors such as poor oral hygiene, a diet high in sugar and carbohydrates, and other risk factors such as tobacco use and genetic predisposition majorly result in the diagnosis of cavities or gum diseases among people. Cavities and gum disease cause severe pain and also can result in tooth loss and other severe complications if not treated in time and with proper diagnosis and this awareness among people has been increasing gradually over the last few years, which is primarily driving the demand for dental services. Likewise, the growing prevalence of dental diseases among people is driving the demand for dental services and contributing to market growth.

The growing awareness among people regarding the importance of oral health in the overall health is another notable attribute boosting the growth rate of the dental services market. The awareness of people regarding the oral care has improved significantly in the recent years and this trend is likely to accelerate in the coming years. This is expected to boost the demand for preventive dental care, such as regular check-ups, cleanings, and oral hygiene education and contribute to the dental services market growth eventually. Technological advancements are fuelling the dental services market growth.  Dental dentistry has experienced numerous technological developments in the recent past. Digital dentistry, CAD/CAM systems, and laser dentistry are some of them. These technological developments have helped to perform the more precise and efficient dental procedures which are further resulted in the improved patient outcomes and satisfaction. The dental industry is anticipated to experience more technological advancements in the coming years owing to the rigorous efforts by the key market participants and continue to favour the dental services market growth.

The growing aging population worldwide is further promoting the growth of the dental services market. People who are aged are more likely to experience dental problems and require dental care, which results in an increased demand for dental services. In addition, factors such as increasing disposable income, growing dental tourism, rising number of initiatives from governmental organizations promoting oral health and providing access to dental care, such as dental insurance coverage and public dental clinics support the market growth. Furthermore, the growing adoption of unhealthy lifestyles such as smoking, poor diet, and lack of oral hygiene, growing demand for cosmetic dental procedures such as teeth whitening, orthodontic treatment, and dental implants, availability and increasing coverage of dental insurance, rapid adoption of dental implants and increasing demand for pediatric dentistry are predicted to accelerate the growth rate of the dental services market.

Global Dental Services Market Restraints:

The high cost of dental services is one of the notable factors hampering the market growth. Due to these high costs, the adoption of dental services is limited among people who do not have dental insurance. Poor awareness among people regarding the role of oral health in overall health is resulting in the low demand for dental services and limiting the market’s growth rate. Limited access to dental care in rural and low-income communities, fear and anxiety about dental procedures among people, and unfavorable reimbursement policies for dental services in some countries impede the market growth. Furthermore, the shortages of dentists and other dental professionals, particularly in rural and underserved areas and the stringent regulatory environment for dental services hinder the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global dental services market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has shared a mixed impact on the dental services market. On the one hand, the demand for dental services has significantly reduced during the COVID-19 pandemic as dental clinics and practices were forced to shut down or operate at limited capacity during the height of the pandemic. In addition to that, many patients have postponed or canceled their dental appointments due to the fear of infection and the implementation of lockdowns and social distancing measures. Furthermore, changes in consumer behavior and attitudes toward dental care have further shown a negative impact on market growth. Several people worldwide have been impacted financially very badly by the COVID-19 pandemic, and due to these financial difficulties, many people have chosen to postpone non-essential dental procedures or seek out cheaper alternatives, and this has resulted in the reduced demand for dental services. Likewise, the dental services market has experienced an unfavorable impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. On the positive side, several dental clinics and dental practitioners have changed the way they deliver dental services and increasingly adopted tela-dentistry services to offer delivery services remotely and this has favored the market. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated awareness regarding oral care and boosted the demand for dental services. Due to this, the emphasis on preventative dentistry and the demand for dental products and dental services has increased notably and contributed to the market growth.
