The global endodontic devices market size was valued at USD 1.56 billion in 2018 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.1% over the forecast period. High prevalence of dental caries, growing expenditure on dental care, and overall growth in consumer disposable income are some of the major driving factors. In addition, dental tourism is expanding due to the availability of low-cost services including transportation, accommodation, and dental care in countries, such as India, Mexico, and Brazil.
Technological advancements and modernization of endodontic devices have resulted in the development of improved rotary equipment that reduces the procedural errors. Moreover, rising use of Nickel-Titanium rotary and reciprocating files over conventional stainless steel hand file systems has enhanced the cleaning and shaping stages of an endodontic procedure leading to better canal preparation.
The rate of dental health literacy is poor in low-income groups leading to inadequate preventive care. However, rising government initiatives over the past few years have changed the context of dental health programs leading to specialized public dental health. In India, as a preventive measure to many health and dental disease, tobacco control was mandated under the World Health Organization Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, wherein the Government of India initiated the National Tobacco Control Program (NTCP).
Government authorities such as NHS U.K. are developing tier-2 services with an aim of accrediting practitioners so that they can deliver NHS services not covered by the Standard General Dental Services (GDS). The Level 2 accreditation specifications will be released for oral surgery and endodontics followed by prosthodontics and periodontics.
On the basis of type of device, the endodontic devices market has been segmented into instruments and consumables. Endodontic motor instrument held the majority of the market share as hospitals and other dental care practices prefer a quick and safer way to perform the root canal process. Rising preference for Nickel-Titanium (NiTi) instruments that provide super elasticity preserving the original anatomy of the apical foramen, is expected to further boost the segment growth.
Consumables such as handpieces are conventional and with emerging technology they are available in variety of design, application, material, and manufacturing methods. Moreover, in recent years, the use of multiaxis grinding machinery has provided a better cutting ability. These factors are anticipated to bode well for overall growth in the forthcoming years.
Dental hospitals held the majority of the market share in 2018. The usage of endodontic instruments highly varies and depends on the intensity of tooth decay. General dentists in both hospitals and clinics can perform the procedures yet often they refer patients to a specialized endodontist.
The umber of patients is admitted by the academic hospitals that are suitable for the treatment by the dental students, trained interns, and hospital staff, is limited. In such hospitals; specialists or consultants only treat patients who fall within certain priority groups.
North America emerged as the largest regional segment in 2018. Technologies such as the ultrasonic equipment are available in a variety of tips having differed shape, length, and materials. Moreover, introduction of innovative sources of ultrasound helps to control the frequency and the amplitude of vibration in all types of tip.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in U.S., more than 18% of children population (5 to 19 years) and 31.6% of adults (20 to 44 years) suffered from dental caries in from 2011 to 2014. However, the number decreased in the following year through 2016, with a 13% prevalence of untreated dental caries.
Asia Pacific is anticipated to experience the fastest growth over the forecast period due to the growing number of dental care infrastructure, rising dental tourism, and R&D activities in the field. The Asian Pacific Endodontic Confederation (APEC) is an association focused on the specialty of endodontics in the region. The Confederation aims to develop and promote high standards of endodontic research and clinical practice along with cultivating a closer professional network of endodontic practitioners within the region.
Some of the key players operating in the market are Danaher, Dentsply Sirona, FKG Dentaire, Ultradent Products, Ivoclar Vivadent, Septodont, COLTENE, Micro-Mega, Brasseler Holdings, LLC and DiaDent Group International. Some of the strategies being undertaken by these companies to strengthen their market presence include mergers and acquisitions and collaborations. For instance, in October 2016, COLTENE Holding AG completed the acquisition of Micro-Mega and SciCan, developers of dental equipment and materials, in a transaction worth 216.60 USD Million.
In February 2016, Dentsply International Inc., a manufacturer of dental consumables and Sirona Dental Systems Inc., a developer of dental technology, announced the completion of their merger creating Dentsply Sirona Inc., a diversified manufacturer of professional dental equipment and technologies. In June 2018, Brasseler launched EndoSequence Reciprocating (ESR) File, a reciprocating NiTi system designed to provide user safety by utilizing a reverse cutting flute design, heat treated NiTi alloy and progressive taper.
