The global dentures market size was valued at USD 1.2 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.2% from 2021 to 2028 owing to the product innovations in the field of dental prosthetics. The rise in the prevalence of dental diseases is likely to accelerate the demand for removable or fixed dentures. Dentures are most commonly used by the elderly population and are associated with tooth trauma, decay, gum diseases, etc. The growth in the incidence of these conditions is expected to drive the market.
The dental care sector was significantly affected in the initial phase of the Covid-19 pandemic as the dental care providers were closed due to the social distancing guidelines. The American Dental Association (ADA) issued a public guideline to keep elective dental procedures on hold in March 2020. According to the ADA, the procedures that needed to be postponed included oral examinations, routine dental cleaning, radiography, cosmetic dental procedures, and other orthodontic treatments. According to the American Dental Association’s Health Policy Institute (HPI), the dental services were at standstill due to the pandemic.
According to the estimates, over 20% of the elderly population aged 65 and over have lost their natural teeth due to decay or diseases. In addition, one or more teeth are missing in around 180 million people. As the average life expectancy is growing, the number of people with missing teeth is expected to rise. Therefore, the demand for dental prosthetics such as dentures is likely to grow in the coming years. The aging baby boomer generation will boost the demand for removable dental prosthetics made with precision. Increased average life expectancy along with the rising baby boomer population is a key driver contributing to the demand for removable or fixed dentures.
The technological advancements in the manufacturing of dentures have helped the patients in the adoption and usage of dentures. The complete or partial dentures made with CAD/CAM technology offer promising prospects for denture designing. The automation due to CAD/CAM technology benefits the dental laboratories which lack the infrastructure. The advent of CAD/CAM in the automated designing of dental prosthetics has changed the dental technology industry.
The complete dentures segment held the largest revenue share of 73.4% in 2020. The conventional complete dentures replicate gum tissues and are generally recommended for people with no teeth. These are mainly used by elderly people. Therefore, the growing geriatric population across the globe is expected to contribute to the demand for complete dentures.
The use of CAD/CAM technology to manufacture perfect-fit dentures has helped accuracy in complete dentures. The partial dentures segment is anticipated to showcase the fastest CAGR over the forecast period from 2021 to 2028. Partial dentures replace a single tooth or a few missing teeth. They are comparatively cheaper than complete dentures. They help in restoring face aesthetics by filling in the gaps in the mouth. They can be installed in a one-day procedure.
The removable segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 61.5% in 2020. Removable dentures are popular as they are traditionally preferred prosthetic options. They are less invasive and are generally considered a cheaper option to replace missing teeth.
The fixed dentures segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period from 2021 to 2028. Although fixed dentures are expensive, they can be a one-time investment as the need to replace or remake them is eliminated. Fixed dentures prevent bone loss as constant removal is not required.
The dental clinics and hospitals segment held the largest revenue share of 84.9% in 2020 and is also likely to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period from 2021 to 2028. Most of the patients visit independent dental practices owing to the availability of specialists and personalized care.
The number of dental independent clinics is growing worldwide. This is likely to continue in the coming years due to the cost-efficiency, availability of specialists, and technologically advanced settings. During the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the industry faced many challenges as the practices were at high risk of spreading the virus. The dental clinics were not allowed to operate during the initial phase. However, they are getting back to their normal operations.
North America dominated the dentures market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 48.1% in 2020 owing to the technologically advanced healthcare infrastructure, preventive approach towards oral care and hygiene, presence of independent dental practices, growth in R&D, and rising disposable incomes. According to the U.S. CDC, around 25% of adults have one or more untreated dental problems. The demand for preventive and restorative dental services is expected to grow as the number of people in the U.S. aged 65 and above is anticipated to increase from around 50 million in 2018 to around 90 million by 2060.
Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the coming years due to the increasing number of dental practices, rising dental tourism in the region, increasing research in dental products, and growing awareness about oral care. The healthcare infrastructure in Asia Pacific is expanding with advanced technology.
The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted dental care services. However, the manufacturers are now focusing on improved ways to enhance patient experiences. As more innovative denture options enter the market, more patients are likely to benefit from them in the coming years. The market trends and conditions improved since the last quarter of 2020.
