Opportunity: Rising disposable incomes in developing countries

The increase in the income levels in developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil, with a relatively high decayed, missing, and filled teeth (DMFT) index, are expected to boost restorative dental products. According to a research study conducted by the International Monetary Fund, one of the leading economic communities in the world-China has shown a considerable increase in the per capita national income. The general growth in the per capita income will result in an increase of the dental healthcare expenditure among the population, henceforth driving the uptake of dental treatments in the country. Thus, population growth in emerging markets, coupled with increasing healthcare spending, is expected to offer opportunities for developing the restorative dentistry market in emerging countries.

Challenges: Dearth of Dental practitioners

The demand for dental care services is expected to increase globally due to the changing demographics as the population is increasing, growing dental care awareness, and the rising prevalence of dental diseases. However, a shortage of dental professionals in countries poses a significant challenge for the restorative dentistry market. For instance, in Africa, the dentist-to-population ratio is ~1:150,000 (this figure is ~1:2,000 in developed countries). The shortage of dentists in these countries is one of the major challenges expected to reduce the adoption of restorative dentistry despite their large target patient population.
