The Dentures Market is Estimated To Witness High Growth Owing To Increasing Geriatric Population

The Dentures Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2975.19 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
Dentures are artificial tooth replacements that are used when all teeth are lost or are missing. They come in two forms- complete dentures that replace all teeth and partial dentures that replace missing teeth. Dentures can help improve speech, eating and appearance. They are made from various materials like acrylic, nylon, or flexible gum-colored material to closely match natural gum tissues and teeth.

Market key trends:
Increasing geriatric population worldwide is expected to be a major driver for the dentures market over the forecast period. According to UN data, the world population aged over 60 is growing at a rate of around 3% per year and expected to reach 2.1 billion by 2050. Older adults are at higher risk of tooth loss caused by dental caries, periodontal disease, and other age-related oral health issues thereby fueling demand for dentures. Additionally, launch of advanced denture products, growing dental tourism industry and rising expendable income levels in developing nations are some other factors propelling market revenue growth. However, expensive dentures and preference of people for dental implants may limit adoption to some extent.

Porter’s Analysis

Threat of new entrants: The threat of new entrants is moderate as the dentures market requires high capital investment and specialized dental expertise. However, existing healthcare facilities and laboratories can enter the market with differentiation.
