The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has emerged disrupting many socio-economical and healthcare aspects across the world. As per the WHO, the virus has infected around 9.1 million people globally till June 2020. Among that, 80% of cases were in Europe and the U.S. During the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was lockdown in many countries and according to the guidelines, dental offices were shut down, which had negatively impacted the market for dental chairs.

Technology advancement has resulted in increasing the adoption rate of dental chairs. The advanced dental chair includes unparalleled features that help the dental professional and patient to operate and be relaxed during the procedure. Recently, dual location touchpad controls are located on both sides of the upper backrest that provide ease of access. The dual touchpad controls come with an option to add a unit-mounted touchpad, wireless foot control, and remote wireless touchpad. Advanced features are anticipated to increase the demand for dental chairs.

Periodontal or gum diseases caused by mouth cancer and plaque are prevalent dental disorders among the geriatric population. According to the United Nations estimation, in 2019, there were 703 million people aged 65 years or over and the number is projected to double to 1.5 billion by 2050. The increasing geriatric population is expected to increase the demand for dental chairs for the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal and gum disease.

The oral health disease is anticipated to boost market growth. According to the Global Burden of Disease Study estimation in 2017, oral disease affects around 3.5 billion people globally, with caries of permanent teeth being the most common. Worldwide, it has been estimated that around 2.3 billion people suffer from caries of permanent teeth and over 530 million children suffer from caries of primary teeth. The growing prevalence of oral disorders is anticipated to increase the demand for dental chairs for examination and treatment.

Product Insights

Powered dental chairs accounted for the largest volume share of over 55.0% in 2020. The growth is attributed to the increasing advancement in dental chairs and rising preference by dentists to offer optimal comfort to their patients. Advantages offered by powered dental chairs are fueling the segment growth. The powered dental chair offers silent, smooth operation and ease of access that increase its demand in the market.

Moving a dental chair during the procedure is relatively difficult. A powered dental chair is programmed by a button setting that can automatically adjust the height and position during the treatment. This eliminates the need to adjust the dental chair manually and waste time manually. In addition, the powered chair is highly resilient to temperature variations that quickly change as per requirement during the procedures. The features and benefits of powered dental chairs are anticipated to boost the segment's growth.

The features such as dental cuspidors, dental handpieces, and operator light are connected to the chair itself that makes it a perfect option for treatment. Such advantages and benefits are anticipated to boost the segment's growth.

The dental chair-mounted design segment is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period due to the advantages of dental chair-mounted design, such as better mobility and easy maintenance. The chair is comfortable and makes work easier and more efficient, which is anticipated to increase its demand.

Application Insights
