How is Rising Awareness Regarding Oral Diseases Fueling Market Growth?

Rapidly changing lifestyles and improper diets, including sugar-rich diets, and increased consumption of alcohol and tobacco, have made oral health one of the major public health problems in almost every part of the world.

Rise in awareness regarding the long-lasting health impacts of severe oral diseases such as cleft lip and palate, dental caries or tooth decay, oral cancer, and others is substantially increasing the scope for oral hygiene products.

According to CDC, some of the most common diseases that impact oral health are cavities (tooth decay), gum (periodontal) disease, and oral cancer. As per its report, more than 40% of adults report having pain in their mouth, while more than 80% of people will have at least one cavity by the age 34.

According to the World Health Organization, dental caries is still a major oral health problem in most industrialized countries, affecting 60-90% of schoolchildren and a vast majority of adults.

Moreover, with increased expenditure on oral healthcare, consumers across the world have started taking preventive measures, which, in turn, has increased demand for innovative oral hygiene products.

Owing to the above-mentioned factors, consumers across the world have started paying immense attention to maintaining their oral health, which has led to an increase in demand for high-quality oral hygiene products worldwide.

What are the Key Challenges Faced by Oral Hygiene Product Manufacturers?

While oral hygiene products are an integral part of basic healthcare, there are still underdeveloped and rural areas where these products are no less than luxuries. Despite spreading awareness through campaigns and initiatives, many people are yet to take oral hygiene products as seriously as basic necessities. These factors are hampering the market for oral hygiene.

With the development of cost-effective oral care products and more initiatives spreading awareness regarding oral health in rural areas, oral hygiene product manufacturers are expected to overcome these hurdles in the near future.

Why is the Popularity of Toothbrushes Rising Rapidly in Oral Hygiene?

Toothbrushes accounted for a share of 40% in the market. Presently, toothbrushes are the most sought-after oral hygiene products across the world, due to their high utility in maintaining basic oral or dental health and introduction of advanced products such as electric- and battery-powered toothbrushes.

These products provide added benefits such as total mouth cleaning, featuring different modes for usage including deep clean, daily clean, tongue cleaning, whitening, and massaging. Separate designs of toothbrushes for adults and children are available in the market to cater to individual needs.

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), the consensus recommendation is for people to brush their teeth with toothpaste for two minutes twice a day using a toothbrush that has soft bristles. It also recommends replacing the toothbrush every three to four months, or more often if the bristles are visibly matted or frayed. Such guidelines have a significant contribution to the surging demand for toothbrushes.

Which Distribution Channel is Fueling Sales of Oral Hygiene Products?

Prominent players in the oral hygiene market are highly dependent on hypermarkets/supermarkets as they are their immediate customers. Large hypermarkets/supermarkets have high bargaining strength; continued trend of consolidation among retailers could thus create a cost and margin pressure on manufacturers. Furthermore, the high bargaining power of buyers may negatively impact the business of manufacturers.

Presently, hypermarkets/supermarkets are the leading distribution channel for oral hygiene products, and are expected to sustain their position over the coming years. Being easily accessible and highly efficient in selling wide variety of attractive and innovative oral hygiene products to a broad range of customers, this segment is expected to fuel sales further in future.

How Has COVID-19 Impacted Demand for Oral Hygiene Products?

The global outbreak of COVID-19 has led to a negative impact on the sales growth of oral hygiene products due to large-scale closures and shutdowns, restrictions on travel, and a halt in non-emergency dental procedures. There has also been significant decline in dental clinic visits due to the risk of virus spread, negatively impacting the progress of the global oral hygiene products industry.

Consumers’ purchasing patterns have shifted to online shopping due to quarantine measures and social distancing protocols, which affected the sales of oral care products. As a result, some of the leading brands are increasing focus on improving their online presence.
