Report Overview

The global dental chair market size was valued at USD 824.3 million in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6% from 2022 to 2030. One of the key factors propelling the market growth is the rise in dental operations, particularly surgery involving dental aesthetics. Additionally, during the forecast period, expanding healthcare infrastructure is anticipated to support market expansion. The COVID-19 pandemic delayed a lot of dental procedures, which affected the companies' profits. 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. Today's dental chairs can be customized to meet the needs of the patient and the doctor and the light's position.

U.S. dental chair market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

Dental chairs (or dental treatment units) are a necessity for dentists to provide the best possible patient care. These chairs are made to fit specific medical setups, both in terms of size and capacity. Additionally, they are primarily used in a variety of dental procedures, 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.

Even though the covid-19 has impacted the market for dental chairs since fewer people are visiting hospitals. The major dental players reportedly declared a market recovery according to the dental tribunal. In the EMEA region, Straumann Group reported sales of dental products of 230 million, or a 102% year-over-year gain. Furthermore, 85% or more of dental offices are reportedly open in all of our regions, with the exception of Latin America, which is currently in the eye of the hurricane. Envista and Align Technology, in addition to Straumann Group, continued to recover from the epidemic. This would have a positive effect on the market for dental chairs.

The majority of dental problems affecting the elderly population are periodontal or gum diseases, which are spurred on by plaque and mouth cancer. According to UN estimates, there were 703 million adults 65 and over in 2019, and by 2050, the number is expected to increase to 1.5 billion. The demand for dental chairs for the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal and gum disease is anticipated to rise as the senior population rises.

One of the most common non-communicable diseases affecting a sizable section of the world's population is oral health issues. The expanding acceptance of bad eating practices, improper brushing methods, smoking, and fluoride exposure is to blame for the rising prevalence of these disorders. In addition, 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.

Product Insights

The powered dental chair segment accounted for the maximum revenue share of over 60.0% in 2021. The development of dental chairs and dentists' growing desire to provide their patients with the maximum comfort are fueling the growth. The motorized dental chair is more in demand due to its quiet, easy accessibility, and flawless operation. These chairs are highly precise, resistant to temperature fluctuations, and quick to react to them. 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 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 growth.

Type Insights

The ceiling-mounted design dominated the market and accounted for more than 35.0% share of the global revenue in 2021. 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 as a consequence of innovations allows dental surgeons to utilize them to the fullest during operations.

The dental chair-mounted design segment is anticipated to witness significant growth during the projected period due to its benefits such as increased mobility and simple maintenance. A dental chair with a mounted design has the dental engine and attachments built into the actual dental chair, as opposed to a dental chair with a ceiling mount, where the attachments are built into the ceiling. 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.

Application Insights

The examination segment dominated the market and accounted for more than 25.0% share of the global revenue in 2021 due to rising oral hygiene awareness. In July 2020, more than 30 million Americans would be missing all of their teeth in at least one jaw, according to the Academy of Implant Dentistry. Oral health issues are a common problem. Dental problems are becoming more common, which necessitates diagnosis and treatment, driving up the demand for dental chairs and fueling the segment expansion.

Global dental chair market share, by application, 2021 (%)

The others segment is anticipated to expand during the projected period 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. The dental chair based on the application is divided into four segments: examination, surgery, orthodontics, and others.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market with a revenue share of over 35.0% in 2021 owing to the rising demand for dental chairs as a result of the necessity for a little discomfort, quick diagnosis, and 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, nearly 50% of the U.S. population (aged 30 and older) have periodontal disease. In 2021, 63% of Brits would brush their teeth twice daily, with 47% using fluoride-containing toothpaste. Rising alliances and synergies among key industry participants are anticipated to accelerate market expansion.

Dental Chair Market Trends by Region

Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand significantly during the projected period due to the growing cases of oral diseases including toothaches and gum diseases. These factors are propelling the growth of the market. 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.
