Mouthwash Market

Natural & Organic Mouthwashes to Comprise Almost 1/3rd of Global Market Demand: Fact.MR

Published : 15 Sep 2021 Industry: Consumer Goods

According to recent statistic published by Fact.MR, the global mouthwash market is poised to reach US$ 8.49 Bn in 2021, expected to surge at a CAGR of over 6% through 2031, reaching a value of US$ 16 Bn by the end of the forecast period. Rising prevalence of oral health problems is one of the principal growth drivers.

Historically, from 2016-2020, mouthwash sales expanded at over 4% CAGR to close in at over US$ 8 Bn. The COVID-19 pandemic provided further impetus to mouthwash sales, attributed to a decline in dental surgeries in favor of addressing patients suffering from SARS. 

Dental caries of primary teeth affect about 530 million children, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Hence, players such as Procter & Gamble and Colgate-Palmolive Company have launched campaigns to raise dental hygiene awareness among both children and adults, resulting in increased demand for mouthwash. Because traditional mouthwashes might contain toxic components such as alcohol, poloxamer 407, and sodium saccharin, customers are turning to natural and organic mouthwashes.

“As oral health problems continue to surge, manufacturers are increasingly deploying advanced disinfectant solutions, prompting high amounts of research and development to formulate new products,” says the Fact.MR analyst.

Competitive Landscape

Prominent mouthwash manufacturers are emphasizing on extensive research & development initiatives so as to introduce products containing highly effective disinfectants. Besides, strategies such as capacity expansion, acquisitions and partnerships are also relied upon. Some key developments are as follows:
