Artificial Saliva Revenue Analysis from 2017-2020 Vs Market Outlook for 2021-2026

“Rising Awareness Regarding Artificial Saliva Products Aiding Market Growth”

As per Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global artificial saliva market was valued at US$ 667.9 Mn in 2020.

Saliva is necessary for the healthy functioning of the oral cavity, and its dilution can result in a variety of disorders. Artificial saliva is a substitute for natural saliva that moistens and lubricates the mouth for a short time. It also aids in the control of germs in the mouth, which aids in the prevention of illness and dental cavities. Artificial saliva can help you avoid health problems by alleviating the symptoms of dry mouth.

Oral health maintenance costs are a significant healthcare concern that has a direct impact on the artificial saliva industry. Because the artificial saliva market is primarily driven by consumers, a rise in per-capita spending and disposable income are expected to boost the industry over the projected period.

Artificial saliva market forecast by Fact.MR

The market is predicted to expand as the number of instances of cancer rises, as well as the demand for treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy, which raise the risk of dry mouth. Other aspects driving the artificial saliva market over the forecast period include an ageing population, more awareness about the less adverse effects and complications of oral gels and oral liquids, and increased spending on oral care products.

These factors are expected to drive the worldwide artificial saliva market at a high 13.3% CAGR from 2021 to 2026.

Which Emerging Trends are Driving Demand for Artificial Saliva Products?

“Growing Prevalence of Dysphagia & Continuous R&D Activities Fuelling Industry Growth”

Rising prevalence of xerostomia, often known as dry mouth syndrome, which causes decreased salivary flow and mucosal dryness, is propelling the artificial saliva industry forward. The increased incidences of cancer around the world are also driving demand for the product, as the odds of dry mouth syndrome and dysphagia increase with radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

Growing senior population, more awareness of the fewer issues connected with oral gels and liquids, and rising per capita expenditure on oral care products all contribute to this trend.

Growing investments in R&D activities to prepare enhanced formulations that can support the function of natural saliva, such as through extended antibacterial action, are likely to positively influence market growth over the projection period.

Which Market Challenges are Hampering Artificial Saliva Product Sales?

“Availability of Several Alternatives to Treat Dry Mouth Syndrome Hampering Market Growth”

Several options for treating a dry mouth, including herbal treatments, acupuncture, and salivary stimulants, all of which limit the artificial saliva market growth.

R&D activities in the creation of artificial salivary glands for patients suffering from salivary gland impairment, as well as saliva stimulating pens, are factors hampering demand growth of artificial saliva to some extent.

Which Regional Market Accounts for Highest Demand for Artificial Saliva?

“Prominent Presence of Innovative Healthcare Solutions to Boost Industry Expansion in North America”

North America is likely to account for a considerable share of the industry due to the easy availability of artificial saliva products, innovative healthcare solutions by market players, and strong consumer spending power in the region.

Favorable compensation scenario and rising initiatives to raise xerostomia awareness are also driving the sales of artificial saliva products in North America.

Oral sprays are commonly used to treat dry mouth. Healthcare providers are actively recommending these sprays to reduce drug side effects and hence improve quality of life. Oral sprays are also freely accessible to consumers because they do not require a doctor's prescription and are kept in large quantities by pharmacists or stores.

Which Distribution Channel is Fueling Sales of Artificial Saliva Products?

Non-adherence to medication, on the other hand, is a key issue that leads to poor outcomes. However, multiple studies have indicated that using mail order pharmacy deliveries improves prescription adherence.
