Periodontal Disease Model

Periodontal Therapeutics Market: Introduction

  • “Global Periodontal Therapeutics Market”. According to the report, the global periodontal therapeutics market was valued at US$ 537.0 Mn in 2018 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 8.8% from 2019 to 2027.
  • Rise in reported cases of periodontitis, rise in global geriatric population and surge in awareness about oral health are projected to drive the global periodontal therapeutics market.

Local Antibiotics Segment to Account for Significant Market Share

  • Surge in awareness about oral health primarily driven by national and community policies regarding effective control on diet and nutrition risk factors for oral diseases such as periodontal and dental disease, and development of novel products for the treatment of periodontal diseases are expected to provide fillip for antibiotic based treatment options. Companies can also focus on introducing locally applied antibiotics in countries with sizeable population affected with periodontal diseases in order to capitalize on the large unmet needs in these countries.
  • The growth of the segment can be attributed to the advantages offered by locally applied antibiotics over systemic antibiotics. Local route of drug delivery provides 100-fold higher concentrations of an antimicrobial agent in the subgingival sites in comparison to a systemic drug regimen, which, in turn, reduces the total patient dose by more than 400-fold
  • Local antibiotics also help in reducing the potential problems associated with the use of systemic antibiotic drugs and can negate the development of drug resistant microbial population in non-oral body sites
  • Additionally, focus of pharmaceutical companies on the development of improved local antibiotics is expected to further boost the demand for these products

Periodontal Market Analysis

  • The global periodontal market is expected to register a CAGR of nearly 6.6%, during the forecast period (2022 – 2027).
  • The number of hospital visits related to dental care has decreased since the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. The main causes of fewer visits to dental clinics were the fear of contracting the virus, postponing dental surgery procedures, and online consultation. Moreover. Following the initial wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, dental practices in some countries appeared to be returning to normal.
  • According to the study titled “The Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Dentistry and Dental Education: A Narrative Review” International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health in February 2022, after the initial quarantine, about 80% of Italian dentists resumed their regular practice.
  • Due to the virus’s long-term evolution, there were some regional variations. For instance, the percentage of dental offices that reopened varied from 36% in the United Kingdom to 47% in Palestine, while it reached 99% in Italy and the United States. Thus, such incidents hampered the market’s growth in the initial phase of the outbreak, however, the market is anticipated to gain traction over the coming years.
  • The growth of the global periodontal market is due to the increasing geriatric population across the world. Medical and dental tourism is experiencing growth in developing markets, which is also one of the prime factors responsible for market growth.
  • For instance, as per a March 2022 update by the World Health Organization (WHO), it is estimated that oral diseases affect nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide, and severe periodontal (gum) disease, which may result in tooth loss, is also common, with almost 10% of the global population affected. Also, as per the United Nation’s World Ageing Highlight of 2020, 727 million people were living around the world at the age of 65 and more.
  • This number is expected to reach 1.5 billion by 2050, which complements the growth of the cosmetics dentistry market. As per the report, the share of the geriatric population in the world population was 9.3% in 2020, and by 2050, it is expected to reach 16% of the total world population. Thus, the increasing geriatric population is expected to drive the growth of the market for periodontal treatment as these groups are more prone to dental diseases, thereby driving the demand for the personal market.​
  • Major corporations are creating potential drug candidates to enhance the treatment of periodontal disease which is expected to boost market growth. For instance, in March 2021, Amyndas Pharmaceuticals reported encouraging top-line Phase II results. For its randomised, placebo-controlled clinical trial evaluating AMY-101 in 39 patients with periodontal inflammation and gingivitis.
  • However, in developing countries, ignorance of personal hygiene is negatively affecting the growth of the periodontal market.

Periodontal Industry Segmentation

  • As per the scope of the report, the periodontal market comprises the treatment therapies that are currently available for the treatment of periodontal diseases. Local antibiotics, systemic antibiotics, and laser therapy are the widely used non-surgical methods used for the treatment of periodontitis.
  • The Global Periodontal Market is segmented by Therapy (Surgical Treatment and Non-surgical Treatment) and Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East and Africa, and South America). The report also covers the estimated market sizes and trends for 17 countries across major regions globally. The report offers the value (in USD million) for the above segments.

Periodontal Market Trends

  • This section covers the major market trends shaping the Periodontal Market according to our research experts:
  • Laser Treatment Segment is Expected to Exhibit Fastest Growth Rate Over the Forecast Period
  • In contrast to conventional therapies, laser therapy complements them rather than replaces them. In periodontal laser therapy, your periodontist accesses the inflamed gum tissue from the area surrounding the root of  tooth and removes it using a laser.
  • Then they clean away the tartar and plaque that have accumulated below and around the gum line. Dental lasers are devices that produce a narrow beam of light u d to remove or shape a tissue in a dental treatment procedure. Painless and short dental surgeries have been made possible with the help of dental lasers.
  • They are highly effective, depending upon the dentist’s ability to control the exposure time and laser power output. According to the World Health Organization’s report in May 2020, severe periodontal disease is estimated to affect nearly 10% of the global population. The leading causes of periodontal disease are poor oral hygiene and tobacco use.
  • Thus, rising in periodontal diseases across the globe the demand for dental treatment is expected to increase over the forecast period thereby boosting the segment growth.
  • Companies are now focusing on the development of new products to expand their presence in the market. For instance, in October 2020, Summus Medical Laser, one of the global leaders in high-powered laser therapy products, announced the launch of its Horizon Dental Laser System. It is a Class IV therapy laser system designed specifically for dentistry.
  • Furthermore, in December 2020, AMD Lasers introduced its Monet Laser Curing Light, which is a handheld dental device based on diode laser technology designed for dental clinical applications.
  • Thus, with the benefits associated with lasers treatment and the introduction of new products, the market is expected to flourish in this segment.
