The dental adhesives market is projected to grow from $1.92 billion in 2017 to $2.57 billion by 2022, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.02% between 2017 and 2022 according to a report published by Markets and Markets™.
Use in dental hospitals and clinics is estimated to be the largest end-use segment of the dental adhesives market in 2017. The large share can reportedly be attributed to the increasing number of clinics and hospitals especially in emerging markets, rapid adoption of advanced technologies in dental treatments, and growing target patient population. In addition, the growing demand for cosmetic dentistry and increasing number of people opting for various dental restorative procedures are also expected to drive the demand for dental adhesives.
The pit and fissure sealants segment is estimated to be the largest application segment of this market, in terms of both value and volume. The demand for pit and fissure sealants reportedly continues to be driven by their low cost in dental filling and their effectiveness in prevention of cavities as compared to other filling alternatives. The repetitive occurrence of dental caries is the major factor driving the growth of this segment.
Europe is expected to be the largest dental adhesives market during the forecast period. Factors such as the rising geriatric population, increasing oral healthcare awareness, increasing incidences of dental diseases, increasing demand for advanced cosmetic dental procedures, growing dental tourism in some European countries, and increasing number of dental clinics, hospitals, research centers, and laboratories are reportedly driving the growth of the market in Europe.
