Dental Floss Market Snapshot (2022-2032)

[300 Pages Report] The global dental floss market is expected to garner a market value of US$ 626.41 Million in 2022 and is expected to register a CAGR of 8% for the forecast period 2022-2032 by accumulating a market value of US$ 1.35 Billion in 2032. Growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing awareness regarding dental hygiene and oral health.

Dental floss is an essential part of maintaining healthy teeth. Dental floss is used to remove plaque, all food particles, and films of bacteria that get stuck between teeth and are impossible to remove from the toothbrush. It is accessible in ribbon or string form, which can be waxed or un-waxed.

Dental floss is available in several flavors to attract children to flossing. Dental floss is available in flavors such as mint, cinnamon, bubble gum, and plain. Nowadays, disposable floss is gaining traction among young children who may be less able to clean floss. Increasing interest among people to adopt preventive healthcare measures is expected to drive the demand for dental floss.

Moreover, increasing adoption of oral care products is expected to favor the growth of the dental floss market. Furthermore, various organizations such as the American Dental Association recommend the use of dental flossing minimum once a day to get rid of plaque.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers of Dental Floss Market?

An increase in spending on dental and oral products to avoid dental surgeries will drive the growth of the dental floss market. Increasing interest in preventive health care across the world will increase the demand for dental care products such as dental floss.

Growing disposable income and healthcare expenditure favours the growth of the dental floss market. The increasing demand for dental care products to prevent dental diseases such as periodontal disease, dental plaque, and oral infection is driving the growth of the market. Moreover, increasing adoption of new treatment and care options impels the growth of the dental floss market. Availability of new preventive dental care products is another major factor expected to propel the growth of the dental floss market.

Increasing dentist recommendations to include flossing in daily routine propel the growth of the dental floss market over the forecast period. Moreover, dental care regulatory organizations such as the European Federation of Periodontology, American Dental Association, and the National Health Service recommended the use of dental floss in health policies.

Furthermore, high awareness regarding dental care and the availability of flavored dental floss drives the growth of the dental floss market in near future.  Increasing sales of dental floss by e-commerce channels is another major trend in the dental floss market.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Dental Floss Market?

Dental floss is neither sustainable nor environmentally friendly. Thus, the use of dental floss is adding to the waste of the planet. As dental flosses can be used only once, they are creating a huge problem in getting recycled. The material used for dental floss is not easily recyclable. All these factors are hindering the overall growth of the dental floss market in the longer run.

Cavity Problems Augmenting Growth of Dental Floss Market in North America?

Increasing awareness of oral hygiene in U.S. is contributing to the growth of the market. The high presence of cavity problems in the country are pushing people to invest in dental treatments. This, in turn, is increasing the demand for dental floss. The growing cases of gum diseases along with toothache problems is positively influencing the market for dental floss. Thus, North America is expected to dominate the market for dental floss by registering a CAGR of 7% in the assessment period 2022-2032.

Dental Health Awareness Contributing to the Growth of Dental Floss in Asia Pacific?

Advancements in dental treatments and rising importance of oral hygiene especially in India is boosting the demand for dental health. In addition, awareness regarding dental health from the health care sector along with the ill effects of unhealthy gums is increasing the sales of dental floss. Furthermore, changing lifestyles, increasing healthcare spending and dental care awareness are key factors bolstering the demand for dental floss. Thus, Asia Pacific is expected to hold a market share of more than 35% for dental floss market in the forecast period 2022-2032.
