Pediatric Dental Market 2
Pediatric Dental Market 2

Global Pediatric Dental Market is anticipated to grow with an elevated CAGR of around 6% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Pediatric Dental is a branch of dentistry that deals with children from birth through adolescence. A pediatric dentist is a dedicated expert who knows how to address various dental issues specific to children. They offer a wide range of treatment options, as well as expertise and training to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth.

The growth of the pediatric dental market can be attributed to the rising younger population coupled with an increase in awareness regarding maintaining their oral health. For instance, the world bank data, the population of children aged 0 to 14 worldwide was around 1.87 billion. This was increased to almost 2 billion in 2020 and is further expected to rise significantly by 2050. This growth in the target population is likely to create opportunities for many of the industry players in the upcoming years as there is a growing prevalence of oral health issues among children globally. As per a study conducted by one of the leading market research and consulting companies, at least 8 out of 10 children in India suffer from oral health issues.

Furthermore, with the technological advancement in dental procedures and constant evolution in the pediatric dentistry industry, market players are focusing on developing advanced tools and methods that would enhance the patient experience. For example, in 2020, Ortek Therapeutics Inc. has initiated the U.S. commercial launch of the Ortek-ECD, a breakthrough electronic early cavity detection system that has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for professional use only. Dentists can now treat cavities, one of the most chronic diseases in children before it can severely damage tooth structure. Moreover, a shift towards prevention and minimally invasive approaches to the pediatric dental market is also expected to boost across the globe.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Type, Primary segment holds the major share”

Based on type, the pediatric dental market is segmented into primary and permanent. The primary segment accounted for the significant market share in 2020 and it is estimated that it will exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Primary teeth are the baby teeth that start developing during the embryonic stage and then commonly begin to come in about 6 months after birth. The growing number of dental disorders among young children with primary teeth and the need for diagnosis & treatment of these are anticipated to boost the growth of the segment.

“Amongst Disease Type, Dental Caries segment holds the major share”

Based on disease type, the pediatric dental market is divided into dental caries, enamel disorders, and others. The dental caries segment occupied the major share of the pediatric dental market in 2020 and it is expected to grow with substantial CAGR in the upcoming years. The growth of this segment is attributed to the growing prevalence of dental caries among children as they are more probable to have dental caries owing to the presence of one or more decayed, or missing surfaces in any primary tooth. This has led to an increase in demand for the treatment of childhood caries which in turn is also boosting the growth of this segment.

“Amongst Procedure, Dental Cleaning segment holds the major share”

Based on procedure, the market is fragmented into pulpotomies, stainless steel crowns, tooth colored fillings, dental cleaning, and others. In 2020, the dental cleaning segment grabbed a considerable market share, and it is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period owing to growing awareness regarding the regular cleaning and removal of the deposited plaque. Furthermore, the increasing number of oral health conditions is also causing the high demand for dental cleaning procedures which in turn is boosting the growth of this segment.
