Endodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with treating dental pulp and the tissues covering the tooth roots. It includes root canal treatment or endodontic therapy, surgery, retreatment, dental trauma, and the diagnosis of cracked teeth. An increase in the geriatric population primarily drives the global endodontic consumables market; an alarming rise in the prevalence of dental disease & conditions such as periodontal disease, cavities, cracked teeth, and dental pulp; a surge in demand for the root canal procedure; technological advancements in the healthcare sector; an increase in oral hygiene awareness; and a rise in dental tourism. In addition, the elderly are more prone to dental disorders and tooth loss due to weakened jaw muscle and increased medication intake, which decreases saliva production and makes teeth more susceptible to tooth decay. Market participants focus on developing novel strategies for producing new endodontic consumable devices. The expansion of the endodontic consumables market is anticipated to be driven by an increase in the geriatric population, technological advancements, an increase in the incidence of ophthalmic disorders, and an increase in oral health awareness.
The provision of endodontic consumables for managing and treating patients with a wide range of dental diseases, including dental caries, dental fissures, gum disease, edentulism, and tooth loss, is one of the major factors driving market expansion. Globally, dental diseases such as cavities and tooth decay are the leading cause of toothache and tooth loss. In 2020, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 2.3 billion people were diagnosed with permanent tooth decay. Endodontic consumables are available for root canal procedures, including an obturator, endodontic file, and permanent endodontic sealer. Endodontic consumables are distributed to patients and physicians via dental clinics, hospitals, and dental academic research institutions, among other distribution channels. In addition, 47.2% of adults over 30 have severe periodontal (gum) disease, which can result in tooth loss.
The World Health Organization (WHO) reported nearly 657,000 new oral and pharyngeal cancer cases in 2012. In addition, the incidence of oral cancer is rising from 1 to 10 cases per 100,000 people in most countries. Thus, the rising number of dental diseases leads to increased patients seeking dental care, which is anticipated to propel the market for dental consumables.
Endodontic consumables play an essential role in the global healthcare industry. As a result of a rise in dentistry research and development advancements, it is expected to expand during the forecast period. Endodontic consumables are surgical instruments used during root canal procedures that are available in various forms. These instruments for treating dental cavities are made from various materials, including stainless steel and alloy. In January of 2021, FKG, one of the world's foremost providers of endodontic solutions, introduced RACE EVO and R-Motion. These items were used during endodontic procedures. Such recently introduced endodontic consumables are gaining popularity among healthcare professionals and patients. Consequently, such establishments will boost the endodontic consumables market in the coming years.
Europe will command the regional market with the largest share growing at a CAGR of 5.60% during the forecast period. A rise in European dental disorders is anticipated to increase demand for endodontic supplies over the forecast period. Demand for endodontic consumables is increasing, driven by market leaders such as DiaDent Group International and FKG Dentaire SA, among others. Europe's growing technological innovation in endodontic consumables is the primary market driver. Due to the substantial investment and emphasis placed on oral hygiene, Germany is expected to experience substantial growth. Spain is a significant additional nation that substantially impacts the European market for endodontic consumables.
North America will hold the second-largest share of USD 610 million, growing at a CAGR of 4.92%. North America is anticipated to hold a significant market share throughout the forecast period due to technological advances in endodontic consumable devices, the increase in the prevalence of dental disease, and the lack of proper oral hygiene. The increase in the prevalence of missing teeth in one or both jaws is anticipated to increase demand for endodontic, orthodontic, and dental implant treatment, thereby driving market expansion. The American College of Prosthodontics (ACP) reports that 178 million Americans missed at least one tooth in 2019.
The increasing prevalence of periodontitis is one of the primary factors driving market expansion. In 2018, according to data published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, 42% of the U.S. population over 30 was diagnosed with periodontitis, and 7.8% had severe periodontitis. The increase in dental disease increases the need for treatment and, consequently, the demand for endodontic supplies. North America is the leading manufacturing center for endodontic consumable devices, which pushes the expansion of the regional market for endodontic consumables.
Asia-Pacific will be the fastest-growing region with the highest CAGR. Due to an increase in knowledge about dental disorders, an increase in the geriatric population, an increase in the accessibility of medical services, and an increase in demand for root canal procedures, the region's countries offer lucrative opportunities for endodontic consumables market participants. Many patients in China and India suffer from dental complications, making them highly lucrative investment markets.
Due to numerous leading dental consumables manufacturers, the South Korean endodontic consumables market is highly developed, resulting in increased consumer awareness and early access to various products. In addition, the low cost of dental procedures in Asian countries compared to Western countries attracts many patients, thereby increasing dental tourism in Asia-Pacific and stimulating market growth.
