Report Overview

The global endodontic devices market size was valued at USD 1.3 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.2% from 2021 to 2028. An increase in the prevalence of dental caries, high expenditure on dental care, and a rise in out-of-pocket expenditure are some of the major factors driving the market growth. Increasing demand for rotary instruments, improved reimbursement scenario, rising dental tourism, and infrastructural improvements are likely to support the market growth during the forecast period. In addition, the growing investments by key players, such as Danaher and Dentsply Sirona, for geographical expansion is expected to further boost the market. According to the American Dental Association, U.S., dental care spending reduced by approximately 66% in 2020 and is estimated to reduce by 32% in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It also reported the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on at-office oral care treatments. In April 2020, 79% of dental practices attended only to emergency patients or were otherwise closed, 18% were entirely closed, and 3% remained open but with very low patient volume. Multiple companies in the market reported a drop of over 50% in net sales of equipment and consumables posting an operating loss of millions in the second quarter of 2020. Major dental companies witnessed a sharp decline in sales and operating losses in Q2 of 2020, due to the pandemic.

A rise in the consumption of sugar and tobacco has led to an increased prevalence of tooth decay and infection in children & adults. In the U.K., oral health is improving; however, 24.7% of children aged 5 years & above have tooth decay with an average of 3 to 4 teeth affected. Poor oral health leads to expensive treatments, resulting in a significant burden on the national government. Dental tourism involves patients seeking dental care outside their local healthcare systems.

It is growing worldwide due to an increase in competition and technological advancements, enabling providers in developing countries to offer dental care at economic costs as compared to their counterparts in developed countries. Dental tourism gained popularity among Europeans and Americans owing to the cost savings associated with dental services, such as root canals, fillings, dental bridges, and orthodontic care, in destination countries. In Costa Rica, international tourists seeking dental care accounted for 40% of all medical tourist populations. According to Promed, people from around the world travel to developing countries for dental treatments, primarily because it saves 60 to 70% of their overall treatment costs.

Type Insights

The market is analyzed for instruments and consumables independently. The instruments segment led the global endodontic devices market in 2020 with a revenue share of over 55%. Endodontic motors held a majority of the revenue share in the instruments segment, as hospitals and other dental care practices prefer a quick and safer way to perform the root canal process. The rising preference for NiTi instruments that provide super-elasticity and help preserve the original anatomy of the apical foramen is anticipated to boost the motor-driven equipment segment. Handpieces are conventional yet emerging technology with a variety of electric handpieces with different designs, applications, materials, and manufacturing methods.

In recent years, the use of multiaxis grinding machinery has provided a better cutting ability and file flexibility to hand files. Electric motors are relatively inexpensive compared to air-driven units and are compact & mobile. The most used endodontic motors are those that have a continuous and reciprocating motion function as they provide ease of use and save time. Dentsply Sirona offers an X-Smart IQ handpiece, which is a continuous and reciprocating cordless motor with an Apple iOS controlled application, offering different torque settings and real-time torque monitoring.

The access preparation segment, within the consumables domain, is driven by the growth in guided endodontics that allows better predictability, safety, and clinical feasibility to locate canals & prevent root perforation. Navigation in dentistry is a significant example of technological advancement as it has transformed surgical interventions to be safer, more reliable, and predictable. A computer-aided design-based methodology has spurred the demand for customized endodontics.

End-use Insights

Based on end use, the market is divided into dental hospitals, dental clinics, and dental academic & research institutes. The dental hospitals segment dominated the market in 2020 with a revenue share of over 48.0%. However, the dental clinics segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. In most developing countries, the long waiting period in public dental care along with low affordability to private dental settings affects the patient’s treatment decision.

A limited number of patients are admitted by the academic hospitals that are suitable for the treatment by the dental students, trained interns, and hospital staff. In such hospitals, specialists or consultants only treat patients who fall within certain priority groups. Emergency hospital visits for preventable oral health conditions have risen dramatically over the past decade and most of these visits were by young adults. According to the American Dental Association’s (ADA) Health Policy Institute, around 2.2 million people visit the hospital emergency department annually for dental pain, and 41% of these visits are reimbursed through Medicaid.

Regional Insights

North America emerged as the largest regional market in 2020 with a revenue share of more than 41% and is estimated to retain the leading position throughout the forecast period. As per a study conducted in December 2020 by the U.S. CDC, one in four adults have untreated dental problems and 46% of adults aged over 30 years have signs of gum disease; the prevalence of dental caries was 13%.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing regional market with a CAGR of more than 6.5% over the forecast period. This growth can be credited to the rising number of dental care centers, growing dental tourism, and increasing R&D activities in this field. The Asian Pacific Endodontic Confederation (APEC) is an association focused on the specialty of endodontics in the Asia Pacific region. The confederation aims at the development and promotion of high standards of endodontic research & clinical practice along with cultivating a closer professional network of endodontic practitioners within the region. The presence of such organizations is expected to further boost the regional market growth.
