The global sports mouthguard market size is expected to reach USD 8.51 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. A large number of sports-related dental injuries and the high treatment costs associated with these injuries are the key factors driving the growth. Furthermore, rising consumer awareness about the importance of sports mouthguards is fueling the growth of the industry.
A mouthguard is a device that fits over a person’s upper teeth to protect them from injury during contact sports. Mouthguards offer numerous benefits, that are especially essential for athletes. Every year, more than 5 million teeth are avulsed, many of which occur during sports activities, costing nearly $500 million in tooth replacement. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA), sports-related dental injuries account for 13-39% of all dental injuries, with maxillofacial injuries accounting for 2-18% of all injuries. Increased participation in sports such as boxing, soccer, ice hockey, football, basketball, lacrosse, and field hockey by adults and children is expected to drive demand for mouthguards.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the market. This is largely due to the cancellation of several high-profile sporting events in the U.S. Several people are concerned about the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on their preferred sporting events. The National Football League has announced that the Super Bowl and other major sporting events such as the Daytona 500 and the NCAA Championships would be canceled, while Major League Baseball has canceled Opening Day and the start of its season. Other major sporting events, such as March Madness and college football bowl games, have been canceled in anticipation of the COVID-19 pandemic.
