  • Local anesthesia to remain in great demand owing to various functional advantages
  • Asia Pacific to prevail as a major revenue funnel for the dental anesthesia market

Growth Drivers

Rising Dental Implantations, and Tooth Restoration Procedures

A rise in dental disorder cases has resulted in an increase in the number of tooth restoration procedures worldwide. Various dental infections and diseases have affected the lives of many individuals leading to an increase in the demand for dental aesthetics. For instance, according to the 2022 World Health Organization (WHO) report, approximately more than 2 billion individuals suffer from permanent teeth dental caries.

In addition, globally every year around 514 million children have caries of the primary teeth. Consecutively, this has favoured the dental aesthetics industry as individuals aim to restore their oral health by eliminating or reducing dental disorders. This factor remains instrumental in driving the number of dental aesthetic procedures, in turn fuelling the use of dental anesthesia, in turn fueling the dental anesthesia industry.

Furthermore, factors such as significant rise in disposable incomes, stable economic growth, and the availability of advanced dental procedures and solutions have all favored the dental anesthesia market on a global front. Individuals are more inclined towards self-aesthetics, which has driven them to pursue proper dental treatments in a bid to safeguard tooth integrity and appearance.

In addition, rising prevalence of root canal procedures on account of tooth decay and other critical dental issues have also contributed to the use of dental anesthesia. In this backdrop, the increasing number of dental implants and tooth restoration procedures continue to influence the growth of the dental anesthesia market.      

Increasing Demand for Local Anesthesia

The use of local anesthesia has been on an uptick for the past few years in the dentistry sector. The adoption of local dental anesthesia is expected to further increase owing to its functional benefits. Local anesthesia is a popular choice, especially for less complex treatments and procedures such as cavity filling that takes a lesser amount of time to complete. Less difficult and simpler procedures demand the use of local dental anesthesia as it is a safe option with little-to-no side-effects.

Moreover, local dental anesthesia lowers unpleasantness, and other risks associated with distinct types of dental anesthesia such as vomiting, and nausea. With local dental anesthesia, a patient is placed under intravenous or oral sedation, and the area to be operated upon is then numbed. This allows the patient to remain relaxed and comfortable with virtual unawareness about the procedure owing to mild medication and sedation.

In addition, as compared to general anesthesia, local dental anesthesia does not exert stress on the body. Additionally, as a few drugs are needed, patient recovery from a dental procedure is often quite fast. Furthermore, owing to the high demand for non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures, the demand for local dental anesthesia has increased. That said, the rising use of local anesthesia is expected to largely contribute to the growth of the dental anesthesia market on a global scale.

Aging Population

A continual surge in the geriatric demographic aged 65 years and above continues to increase and this is expected to play a significant part in boosting the dental industry in the coming years. Aged populations are highly vulnerable to various dental disorders or conditions such as root caries owing to large gingival recessions which expose root surfaces. In addition, increase in the use of medications that potentially produce xerostomia also can result in root caries among older individuals.

For instance, according to the American Dental Association (ADA), around 50% of individuals in the age range of 75 years or above suffer from root caries, affecting a minimum of one tooth. Additionally, as per the ADA, 10% of individuals between 75 to 85 years of age suffer from secondary coronal caries, which is expected to trigger the need for restorations among aged populations. This factor coupled with increasing global aged populations are expected to further contribute to a spike in dental procedure statistics.

According to the World Health Organization, in 2020, the number of individuals aged 60 years and over outnumbered children who are younger than 5 years of age. Moreover, by the end of 2050, around 80% of aged individuals would be living in middle and low-income countries. As per the United Nations report, by 2050, the number of old adults globally is expected to cross a count of 1.5 billion individuals. Booming aging populations are expected to account for a major share of the dental industry thus triggering further growth for the dental anesthesia market.

Growth Challenges

High Costs and the Potential for Side Effects and Complications May Hinder Growth

Dental anesthesia in certain cases can be expensive with not may individuals having the ability to afford such care. Moreover, anesthesia like several other forms of medication, has the potential to cause side effects or result in complications such as nerve damage, allergic reactions, or tissue damage as well. The availability of alternatives such as nitrous oxide, topical anesthesia, or conscious sedation may also limit product adoption. Factors such as this are expected to have a negative influence on the growth trajectory of the global dental anesthesia market in the future.

Growth Opportunities Across Regions

Asia Pacific to Reign Supreme

Asia Pacific is poised to emerge as a lucrative revenue pocket in the global dental anesthesia market. This can be attributed to increasing patient pools backed by growing populations in conjunction with favourable government initiatives and the availability of advanced healthcare infrastructure. Furthermore, rising dental procedures being undertaken across emerging economies such as China, and India have also fuelled the use of local anesthesia such as prilocaine, lidocaine, bupivacaine, and mepivacaine.

On the other hand, dentistry in developed nations in North America is also picking up steam. This has paved potential pathways for various dental equipment and dental support systems including dental anesthesia. This is primarily due to a greater inclination of individuals in the region to seek proper oral care and treatment. For instance, according to the American Dental Association, more than 8 individuals out of 10 consider oral and dental health as a major aspect of their daily life. This has pushed the use of anesthetics in the dental workspaces in the region thus contributing to the growth of the dental anesthesia market in North America.

Our Research Methodology

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.
