Global Oral care market - By Product:

  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes & accessories
  • Mouthwashes/Rinses
  • Dental Accessories/Ancillaries
  • Denture Products
  • Dental Prosthesis Cleaning Solutions

The toothpaste segment controlled the largest market share in 2020 due to its increased adoption and utility in maintaining proper oral hygiene and preventing dental problems. Teeth whitening toothpaste is one of the most popular products holding the largest share. Manufacturers continually focus on implementing innovative strategies and introducing a broad portfolio of products to improve their market position.

However, introducing advanced variants of toothbrushes, like electric and battery-powered ones, is expected to increase the toothbrush segment, project the fastest growth over the forecast period, and emerge dominant by 2028. These products offer additional advantages like total mouth improvement, including different modes for usage such as deep clean, daily clean, tongue cleaning, whitening, and massaging.

Mouthwash is anticipated to point out profitable growth over the forecast period because of its increasing oral hygiene maintenance usage.
