Oral Care Market Size & Trends 

The global oral care market size was estimated at USD 37.7 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7% from 2024 to 2030.

For instance, the WHO 2022 report projected that oral diseases affect close to 3.5 billion people globally.

U.S. Oral Care Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The COVID-19 pandemic, which is now endemic in major regions, had a significant impact on the market. The initial impact of the onset of lockdowns across major countries presented challenges in the global market. For instance, in May 2020, Colgate-Palmolive announced that they faced production challenges due to lockdowns imposed by the Government of India. Furthermore, Johnson & Johnson reported that its Listerine mouthwash sales rose by nearly 10.8% in the second quarter, reflecting a positive COVID impact.

The rising prevalence of dental caries is a key driver for the market. According to the Journal of the American Dental Association, in April 2022, more than 20% of U.S. adults had untreated dental caries. This study's results were representative of 193.5 million adults in the U.S. Consequently, the study highlighted that prevalence of oral caries was significantly higher in adults suffering from poverty or had an income deficit. Additionally, the WHO Global Oral Health Report published in 2022 highlighted that nearly 3.5 billion people across the world suffer from oral diseases, of which 75% are living in middle-and-low-income countries.

Product innovation in the global market is expected to sustain growth throughout the forecast period. For instance, in August 2023, Water Pik, Inc. launched a Sensonic electric brush, which had specially designed bristles to cohesively brush tooth surfaces. Moreover, the product has a rechargeable battery that can last for at least four weeks. Furthermore, in October 2023, BURST Oral Care launched two products, Pro Sonic Toothbrush and Curve Sonic Toothbrush.

For instance, in January 2024, Oclean X Ultra was announced at the CES 2024 tradeshow. The product features a Maglex motor which has a PowerClean algorithm capable of providing 84,000 movements per minute. In addition, the product provides real-time feedback on brushing techniques to reduce dental caries and other issues.

Oral Care Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is also characterized by a moderate level of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity undertaken by the leading players. This is due to several factors, the rising focus on increasing the company’s products portfolio, the need to consolidate in a rapidly growing market, and the increasing strategic importance of oral care. Several companies are undertaking this strategy to strengthen their portfolio. For instance, in December 2023, Bruush Oral Care Inc. & Arrive Technology Inc. announced a merger to advance and implement the latter’s capabilities in a mailbox-as-a-service platform to facilitate the exchange of goods and services. 

The market is also subject to increasing regulatory scrutiny. Several regulatory and government authorities are focusing on establishing guidelines for the safety of topical applications in dental use. For instance, Subchapter D-Drugs for Human Use, within which PART 355 covers anticaries drug products for over-the-counter human use such as toothpaste, mouthwash, and others.

Several companies are expanding their market share. Thus, product expansion in this industry is significant. Companies are including product launches that are safe to swallow and improve oral microbiome health. For instance, in November 2023, Designs for Health, Inc. launched PerioBiotic Silver, a toothpaste with ingredients such as purified silver, coenzyme-Q10 (CoQ10), grape seed extract, and Dental-Lac. Dental-Lac is a lactobacillus ingredient that supports oral microbiome and periodontal health.

Product Insights

Based on product, the toothbrush segment held the market with the largest revenue share of 25.4% in 2023. Manual toothbrushes are the traditional products; however, the introduction of innovative products, such as electric toothbrushes, has increased their adoption.

For instance, In January 2024, Laifen Tech launched Laifen Wave Electric Toothbrushes that work on its proprietary technology, Laifen Wave, which provides 3x higher-brushing efficiency.

The toothbrush segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The growing adoption of electric and battery-powered toothbrushes is expected to deliver significant growth in the segment.

Labelling claims such as ethical labelling techniques and cruelty-free vegan ingredients are gaining immense market traction.

Distribution Channel Insights

In addition, these stores offer a range of bulk discounts that reduce the cost-pressure on retail stores and consumers. Moreover, these stores are often run by corporations and institutions with immense capital, which drives growth and allows for rapid expansion. For instance, in January 2024, Lidl, a German supermarket chain, announced to open of a store in Queens, New York. By this opening, Lidl achieved its 174th store in the U.S.
