The global nano dentistry market size was valued at USD 838.53 million in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.2% from 2023 to 2030. The rising dental diseases, increasing demand for nano dentistry products, increasing oral hygiene awareness, and rising adoption of advanced dental technology are the driving factors for the market.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the dental industry and significantly impacted patient care services. According to British Dental Association, nearly 19 million dental appointments were postponed or canceled in 2020 out of a probable total of 40 million. Moreover, due to the strict guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK government enforced major restrictions on dental procedures and surgeries that could be performed during the summer of 2020. Companies such as Dentsply Sirona reported a decline of over 50% in net sales and sales of dental consumables declined by 58.6%, leading to an operating loss of USD 42 million in the second quarter. However, the market recovered steadily post-pandemic due to the increasing demand for dental procedures due to the rise in dental diseases.
Nanodentistry uses nanotechnology for treating dental diseases. Nanodentistry facilitates faster and more accurate diagnosis. It enhances the properties of dental materials due to their excellent handling properties and makes the material more durable. Nano-dental techniques for major tooth repair may evolve through many stages of technological growth using tissue engineering, genetic engineering, and tissue regeneration.
Nanodentistry is the future of the dental industry in which every procedure will be performed using equipment and devices based on nanotechnology. Also, it can simplify teeth replacement within a single procedure with correction and precision, combining nanomedicine and biotechnology. The diagnoses and treatments are possible through nanorobots and nanoscale-structured materials.
It is possible to develop materials that are long-lasting with the help of nanotechnology. These products are made for various dental procedures and will have more hardness, elasticity, and strength than traditional dental materials. The technological advances in the manufacture of nanoparticles for implant surface coating and nano formatting lead to better osseointegration and improved functions of implants.
In 2022, the nano ceramics segment dominated the market and held a revenue share of over 38.0%. Nano ceramics possess chemical, physical, and mechanical properties that contrast them from other materials such as conventional ceramic materials, metals, and plastics. Nano ceramics are extremely strong and display great resistance against bending and compression. This material enhances the overall functionality of various dental materials and dental prostheses in the oral cavity.
The nano fillers segment is expected to witness the fastest growth of 10.8% from 2023 to 2030. Nano fillers are one of the most rapidly growing materials possessing excellent prospects for a wide range of medical procedures. Nano fillers have improved flow, superior hydrophilic qualities, and less spacing at dental margins when compared to traditional fillers. Nano fillers present a better adherence to teeth than the larger size fillers.
In 2022, the tooth restoration segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 35.2% and is likely to expand at a CAGR of 10.3% from 2023 to 2030 as it restores the natural function of the teeth and prevents additional damage from decay. Tooth restoration involves restorative materials that are primarily used to replace a loss of tooth structure occurring due to dental caries, or tooth wear due to dental trauma. Additionally, they may be used to alter the cosmetic appearance of an individual’s teeth. Restorative materials are expected to possess several properties such as resistance to chemical erosion & wear, low thermal conductivity & expansion, biocompatibility, and aesthetics among others.
The dental implants segment is expected to witness the fastest growth rate of 10.8% during the forecast period. Increasing demand for the replacement of teeth has provided a good growth potential to the dental implants segment. Dental implants also aid in supporting a bridge, crown, or dentures, thereby fueling segment growth.
In 2022, the dental clinics segment dominated the market and held a revenue share of 51.7%. The dental clinics segment is also expected to witness the highest growth rate of 10.7% over the forecast period. owing to a large number of dental colleges and clinics that have started in recent years. The increasing enrollment in dental courses is also driving the growth of the segment.
For instance, as per the NCBI in 2019 2.7 lakh are registered with the Dental Council of India (DCI). The country achieved more than the ideal dentists-to-population ratio of 1:5,000, as against the 1:7,500 suggested by the WHO in 2020. The growing dental clinics, along with a high number of freshly passed out dental students per year are likely to propel the segment.
In 2022, North America dominated the market with a revenue share of over 38.4% owing to factors including growing R&D activities in dentistry, rising disposable income, and the presence of independent clinics. Moreover, the increasing government funding for dental programs is likely to contribute to market growth. According to CDC, in 2019, 47.2% of adults aged 30 years in the U.S. had some form of periodontal disease, with the condition being more common in men than women, as they are more prone to smoking & health conditions such as diabetes. The rising oral diseases are expected to boost the growth of the nanodentistry market.
Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness the fastest growth of 11.0% from 2023 to 2030 as this region is densely populated, with a growing burden of the geriatric population and oral diseases. Asia-Pacific countries are also known for their low-cost dental treatment, which makes them a chosen market for medical tourism.
Key players in the market are developing and introducing new products with advanced features and technology that can capture a huge share of the market. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, dental practices were closed in many countries. Hence, dental service providers are focusing on introducing innovative ways to improve the care experience for patients with advancements, product launches, and mergers & acquisitions. For instance, in January 2021, Dentsply Sirona acquires Datum Dental. The acquisition is likely to open up significant opportunities for the company within its implants segment.
