Report Overview

The global dental adhesives and sealants market size was valued at USD 3.3 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.9% from 2020 to 2027. The growing demand for dental restorations and cosmetic dentistry coupled with advancements in dental materials in terms of science and technology is anticipated to drive their demand over the forecast period. Moreover, according to the FDI World Dental Federation, dental caries is one of the most prevalent oral diseases across the globe and accounts for nearly 10.0% of the healthcare budget of most of the developed nations. Thus, the high prevalence of dental caries coupled with the need to curb healthcare costs is anticipated to fuel the demand for preventive dentistry, thereby driving the market.

The U.S. dental adhesives and sealants market size

According to the FDI World Dental Federation, the sugar intake across the globe has nearly tripled during the past 50 years. Intake of sugary foods and drinks is one of the chief risk factors for dental caries. Sugar and acid in these products weaken the tooth enamel and can lead to tooth decay. The rise in the consumption of such products is anticipated to increase the demand for dental services and devices.

An article by the American College of Prosthodontists states that single crowns are one of the most popular dental procedures in the country and nearly 2.3 million implants supported crowns are produced each year. In addition, it also states that nearly 15% of individuals with tooth loss use dentures. Thus, high demand for dental restorations coupled with growing geriatric population and road accidents is anticipated to increase the demand for dental adhesives. 

Supportive initiatives by the government to improve oral health outcomes are anticipated to increase the affordability and accessibility of dental sealants. For instance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) introduced a ‘School Sealant Program’ wherein pit and fissure sealants will be provided to millions of school-going children, especially those in rural and low-income schools.

Product Insights

The adhesives segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 59.0% in 2019. This can be attributed to the popularity of tooth bonding procedure and high demand for dental restorations. The dental adhesives and sealants market is broadly categorized into adhesives and sealants. The adhesives segment is further divided into restorative and denture adhesives. The denture adhesives segment is sub-segmented into creams, powders, and strips while the restorative adhesives are sub-segmented into etch-and-rinse adhesive systems, self-etching adhesive systems, and universal adhesive systems. The sealants segment is sub-segmented into glass ionomer based and resin-based sealants.

Global dental adhesives & sealants market share

A wide range of adhesives are available in the market and the players are actively involved in the development of new bonding agents. Some of the most popular adhesives are OptiBond FL, Scotchbond MP, Futurabond U, Prelude One, OptiBond XTR, Scotchbond Universal, and ALL-BOND UNIVERSAL. The high product availability is anticipated to fuel competition and thereby segment growth.

The dental adhesives segment is also anticipated to witness rapid growth over the forecast period due to advancements in bonding materials expanding their application scope. For instance, universal adhesives can be used for direct as well as indirect restorations and are capable of bonding to porcelain, metals, composites, and zirconia. Furthermore, these adhesives are also compatible with the dual-cure, light cure, as well as self-cure resin-based systems, highlighting broader applications as compared to 7th generation adhesive systems.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest revenue share of nearly 37.0% in 2019. This can be attributed to high product availability, the presence of advanced technologies, and favorable reimbursement structure. For instance, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and Medicaid provide coverage for dental sealants, increasing its affordability and thereby encourage the adoption of sealants and related services.

In Asia Pacific, the market is anticipated to witness rapid growth over the forecast period due to the rapidly aging population, increasing awareness about oral health, and the growing prevalence of dental caries due to changing lifestyles. Growing beauty consciousness and a rise in social media usage are anticipated to increase demand for ‘Hollywood smile’, thereby facilitating the market growth in the region.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

Key market players are engaging in product launches and mergers and acquisitions, to strengthen their product portfolio and to provide competitive differentiation. For instance, in May 2018, Tokuyama Dental America launched Universal Bond, which eliminated the need for light curing and reduces the wait time post-application. Such products are anticipated to increase its popularity among the dentists and thereby strengthen the company’s market position in the region.
