The global dental chair market size was valued at USD 957.2 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2023 to 2030. One of the key factors driving the market growth is the rise in dental operations, particularly surgeries relating to dental aesthetics. Additionally, advancement in the healthcare infrastructure is further anticipated to boost market expansion. The COVID-19 pandemic delayed a lot of dental procedures, which affected the growth of the market. Nonetheless, the growing need for patient comfort during surgeries and rising product demand are driving the market growth. Therefore, significant advancements in dental chairs are being designed to provide patients with the best possible comfort throughout procedures.
Dental chairs (or dental treatment units) are a necessity for dentists to provide the best possible patient care. These chairs are designed particularly for medical setups, in terms of size as well as capacity. In addition, these chairs are mainly used in a variety of dental procedures such as examinations, aesthetic dentistry, endodontic procedures, orthodontic applications, and surgeries. The expansion of the industry has been aided by the development of advanced dental chairs that allow practitioners or dentists to expedite their everyday responsibilities.
Periodontal, oral cancer, and mouth sores are the most common dental problems driving people to dentists. According to the fact sheets published by World Health Organization (WHO), in March 2023, oral diseases affect approximately 3.5 billion people whereas, severe periodontal diseases affect 19% of the population around the globe. Moreover, the prevalence of oral diseases such as Edentulism is more common in people above 60 years of age. Therefore, the demand for dental chairs is expected to rise with the increasing prevalence of oral diseases and the increasing geriatric population.
Furthermore, the change in eating habits including improper brushing methods, fluoride exposure, and smoking can be considered responsible for the rising prevalence of these disorders. Many people around the world, particularly in developing nations, suffer from untreated oral health conditions. In numerous countries, oral therapy epidemiology and evaluation are of major national significance. According to an article published by WHO in November 2022, 3 out of every 4 people suffering from oral cancer belong to low- and middle-income countries.
A negative impact of COVID-19 was also observed on the dental chair market as restrictions were imposed on people’s movements and some medical procedures. However, as the restrictions eased, key players in the market reported recovery. For instance, according to an article published in Dental Tribune in May 2021, the sales of Straumann Group spiked by 725 in Asia Pacific and 32% in Europe.
Based on product, the dental chair market is segmented into powered dental chairs and non-powered dental chairs. The powered dental chair segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 63.1% in 2022. It is also expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period from 2023 to 2030. The development of dental chairs and the growing desire of dentists to provide their patients best possible services are expected to fuel the market growth.
The motorized dental chair is more in demand due to its quiet, easy accessibility, and flawless operation. These chairs are highly advanced and designed to resist temperature fluctuations and remain convenient to handle. Additionally, the pre-programmed settings used by powered chairs eliminate the need for manual intervention and improve time management. Additionally, modern technology requires less maintenance and downtime for repairs.
Moving a dental chair during the procedure is relatively difficult. A powered dental chair is programmed to be operated using a button that can automatically adjust the height and position during the treatment. This eliminates the need to adjust the dental chair manually and saves valuable time. In addition, the powered chair is highly resilient to temperature variations that quickly change as per the requirement during the procedure. The features and benefits of powered dental chairs are anticipated to boost segment growth.
Based on type, the dental chair market is segmented into ceiling-mounted design, mobile independent design, and dental chair-mounted design. The ceiling-mounted design segment accounted for the largest revenue share of around 39.7% in 2022. The ceiling-mounted design includes mobile storage units at the head of the chair and ceiling-mounted accessories like trays and lamps.
The layout orientation could be changed using flexible storage units. The dental chair-mounted design segment is anticipated to witness growth during the projected period due to its advantages, including easy maintenance and better mobility compared to other chair designs. The effectiveness of these chair designs due to their innovative nature enables dental surgeons to utilize them to the fullest during operations.
The dental chair-mounted design segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period from 2023 to 2030 due to its benefits such as increased mobility and simple maintenance. These chairs have features such as wireless foot control and mounted touchpad which adds more convenience to the treatments. Mobile-independent design chairs feature locking mechanisms and are either wheeled or foldable. They are often used in locations where access to dental services is extremely limited because they are primarily made to be used in mobile operations.
Based on application, the dental chair market can be segmented into examination, surgery, orthodontics, and others. The examination segment held the largest revenue share of 28.4% in 2022 due to increasing awareness regarding oral hygiene. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 64.1% of adults above 18 years of age had a dental exam or cleaning in 2022, whereas 86.9% of children aged between 2 to 17 years had a dental visit in 2019. Frequent dental exams can help in early diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases which encourages young adults to get a dental checkup, ultimately boosting the growth of this segment.
Moreover, Dental problems are becoming more common, which necessitates diagnosis and treatment, driving up the demand for dental chairs and fueling the segment expansion. According to an article published in the Academy of Implant Dentistry in July 2020, approximately 30 million people in the U.S. would be missing all their teeth.
The others segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 6.3% over the forecast period from 2023 to 2030 due to bad eating patterns and smoking. It is anticipated that the increased demand for aesthetic dental surgery and rising aesthetic awareness would increase the demand for cosmetic dental operations, thereby driving the segment.
North America dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 38.1% in 2022 owing to the rising demand for dental chairs due to the necessity for additional comfort, quick diagnosis, precise treatment, and increased consumer knowledge regarding the effectiveness of the therapeutic application. Additionally, it is projected that the rising number of dental offices and practitioners and an increase in the prevalence of dental diseases will support market expansion. For instance, an article published in the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research suggests, 2 in every 5 adults in the U.S. are affected by periodontal disease. According to a report published by American Dental Association, in 2020, the number of dentists per 100,000 population was 61.0 in 2020 and is projected to increase to 67.0 by 2040.
Moreover, the risk of dental diseases such as caries and periodontal is higher among the older population which is increasing significantly. For instance, according to an article published in PubMed in September 2021, 1 in every 11 people belong to the age group 65 years and older and this number is expected to increase to 1 in every 6 people.
Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period from 2023 to 2030due to the growing cases of oral diseases including toothaches and gum diseases. Moreover, the market for dental chairs is expanding owing to the growing emphasis on dental clinic infrastructure development and the requirement to give patients more comfort. Also, the adoption of technologies like CAD/CAM for dental restoration operations is anticipated to accelerate market expansion.
The market has the presence of several global and local players who are focusing on the development of new and innovative products to gain more market share. For instance, companies are increasingly focusing on specific areas as a result of the high competition in the market. For instance, Dentis, a dental equipment manufacturing company, presented an innovative dental chair model, LUVIS Chair at Seoul International Exhibition (SIDEX) 2023.
