The global dental adhesives and sealants market is a vital market owing to the increase in the need of proper oral treatment. Dental adhesives are used to ensure that denture is at its place during daily activity. They are applied in diverse formulations such as powders, liquids, wafers, creams and pads. Similarly, dental sealants are barriers that help in preventing cavities. Plastic resins are primarily used to make this material and is usually applied on the chewing surface of the back of a tooth as they are most susceptible to oral decay.
The global dental adhesives and sealants market is expected to showcase a significant growth of during the forecast period (2017-2023). This market growth can be attributed to the increase in improper food habits in the younger generation and the rising aging population in countries like Japan and China. Additionally, the rising population and the increasing concern of the people regarding oral care is further expected to drive the dental adhesives and sealants market during the forecast period.
The market for dental adhesives and sealants on the basis of their form is segmented as water based, solvent based, radiation cured and others. The radiation cured form of dental adhesives and sealants dominates the dental adhesives and sealants market owing to its high dentin bond strength. Additionally, the market on the basis of dental application is segmented as denture bonding agents, pit & fissure sealants, restorative adhesives, orthodontic bonding agents, luting cements, tray adhesives and dental surgical tissue bonding. Pit & fissure sealants and denture bonding agents together hold majority of the global dental adhesives and sealants market. Additionally, these two segments are expected to continue holding the largest market share during the forecast period.
Moreover, the dental adhesives and sealants market has been segmented on the basis of adhesives-type as self-etch, total etch and selective etch. The dental academic world tends to support the total etch type of dental adhesives, while clinicians in practice are in favour of self-etch and selective etch owing to their low postoperative tooth sensitivity and easy predictability while working in a fast system i.e., treating several patients at a time. The dental adhesives and sealants market by material is segmented as dual cured, light cured and self-cured. Presently, dual cured dominates the global adhesives and sealants; however, with continuous R&D involved in the dental adhesives and sealants market, it is expected that self-cured will surpass the market for dual cured by 2023.
The key trend observed in the study includes factors such as the improper food habits and the increasing awareness related to proper oral hygiene. Oral diseases are a major health concern owing to their higher prevalence and their effects on the individual’s quality of life. According to the World Health Organisation “Promotion of oral health is a cost-effective strategy to reduce the burden of oral disease and maintain oral health and quality of life.” Periodontal disease, dental caries, malocclusion and oral cancer are among the most prevalent dental diseases affecting people worldwide. The possible etiological factors leading to these oral diseases are genetic predisposition, developmental problems, poor oral hygiene, and traumatic incidents. The upcoming generation has become more aware of the importance of dental care. Additionally, the market has growing significantly on the face of several oral care campaigns by the Government and other organization that is responsible for the steady growth of the dental adhesives and sealants market.
The key driver observed in the study includes the increasing number of the patient pool for dental care. Accessing dentistry for both primary and secondary care can help identify the type of dental disease. Primary care like oral maxillofacial surgery whereas secondary care such as orthodontic problems can increase the demand for dental diagnosis, in turn, driving the growth of the dental adhesives and sealants market.
The global dental adhesives and sealants market, despite witnessing positive growth over the past years, have encountered few key obstacles. For instance, lower dental hygiene among adult and high treatment cost have hindered the growth of the market. While the high cost of treatment not being a hindrance for the North America and Europe market, it continues to be a major concern for manufacturers, who are looking forward to establishing their business across emerging nations like India and China where there is a bandwidth between the general public and the technology. This factor hinders the smooth growth of the global dental adhesives and sealants market.
The global dental adhesives and sealants market has a lot of potential scope in it. The major players in the dental adhesives and sealants market are adopting significant competitive strategies such as mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures to hold a competitive stance in the global dental adhesives and sealants market. Additionally, other prominent manufacturers in the industry are undergoing continuous R&D to come up with cutting-edge advancement in the industry. Some of the key players in the global dental adhesives and sealants market include 3M, Henkel AG, Johnson & Johnson, Mitsui Chemicals and DUX Dental.
