Dental experts’ tools to provide dental treatment are called dental instruments, which include instruments for examining, manipulating, treating, restoring, and removing teeth and oral structures surrounding them. The main causes of dental illnesses are the regular consumption of tobacco and unhealthy foods. Plaque, cavities, and periodontal disease are some common dental illnesses. Growing concerns related to oral hygiene and increasing life expectancy contribute to the increasing number of dental visits globally. Moreover, the aging population base is also boosting the dental surgical instruments market. The cosmetics influence in improving one’s smile and overall appearance and rising aesthetic dental care sense are likely to further fuel the dental surgical instruments market. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, on average, there exist only 19.9 teeth in the old population, as dental and cosmetic problems occur due to aging.
The dental surgical instruments market is fragmented based on product, therapeutic area, and patient care setting. The product segment of the market includes instruments and consumables. The instruments segment is further divided into handheld instruments, lasers (soft-tissue lasers and all-tissue lasers), handpieces (air-driven, hybrid, and electric), electrosurgical systems, and ultrasonic instruments.
Consumables include aspiration tips, intraoral tips, impression trays, accessories, sutures, retractors, syringes, mouth props and gags, elastics, needles, and bite blocks. Instruments are anticipated to dominate the market and hold almost 65% of the market share in the future.
Based on the therapeutic area, the market includes endodontics, orthodontics, restorative dentistry, and others. Restorative dentistry is projected to lead the dental surgical instruments market in the future, owing to the rising aging population, escalating prevalence of dental disorders, and rising adoption of prosthetic and implants treatments in developed economies like Japan, Germany, and the U.S.
The patient care setting segment is categorized into hospitals and clinics. Dental clinics accounted for more than half of the market revenue in 2018, owing to their pleasant setting and high nurse preference for performing various dental procedures. The growing demand for private hospitals is likely to receive a significant boost from developing nations around the globe.
North America and Europe are anticipated to dominate the global dental surgical instruments market in the future and will together account for nearly 61 percent of market share globally by 2025. This can be attributed to major producers like DENTSPLY Sirona and Straumann in Europe, which leads to
enhanced competition in the dental surgical instruments market. According to Europa statistics, by 2020, more than 26 percent of the European population is expected to be geriatric. This is anticipated to provide a high-profit market for dental surgical instruments and a high unrestricted revenue group in the region. Germany is a major dental surgical instruments market, owing to high per capita revenue for dental treatments.
