Market Dynamics

Market Growth Drivers Analysis

Due to the increasing aging population in Australia, there has been an increase in the number of dental implants and oral surgeries being performed. In addition, there is a decrease in manual dexterity and an increase in co‐morbidity and medications affecting the oral cavity. Hence, the dental care in aged care facilities is found to be poor and access to dental professionals is difficult. There are several other risk factors, such as smoking, poor oral hygiene, diabetes, medication, and hereditary conditions, which are also connected to the increase in dental diseases. There are few population-based surveys in the Australia that demonstrate a high dental caries experience among elderly population. Thus, it is being found that the number of elder people is growing fast in all industrialized countries including Australia, and thus, contributing to the increase in dental device market. The other factors, such as increasing incidence of dental diseases and innovation in dental products is expected to drive the market in the forecast period.

Market Restraints

Increasing Cost of Surgeries, Expanding Demand for Refurbished Dental Devices are a major restraining factor. The increased cost of services due to high cost of dental equipment is a significant factor that may hamper the market growth during the forecast period. Hospitals may also be under more pressure to raise prices to compensate for lower volume. There are major opposing influences, though.

Covid-19 Market Impact Analysis

Industry operators are expected to face several challenges related to COVID-19. The implementation of level three guidelines and restrictions in March 2020 limited the number of dental services able to be offered. Under these restrictions, dentists may only perform dental treatments that do not generate aerosols or where treatment generating aerosols is limited. While most dental practices have since reopened following the move to level one restrictions in May 2020, the implementation of level two restrictions in regional Victoria and level three restrictions in metropolitan Melbourne in July and August 2020 are expected to dampen demand in 2020-21 as are subsequent regional lockdown restrictions.

Competitive Landscape

Key Players

The market for dental devices in Australia is moderately competitive and there are several international companies that are having a strong presence in this country. The global players into the Australia dental devices market are 3M Company, A-Dec Inc., Biolase Inc., Carestream Health Inc., Dentsply Sirona, Envista Holdings Corporation, GC Corporation and Planmeca.

Products in Pipeline

Through the use of CAD/CAM technology, dentists and laboratory technicians are able to increase productivity levels. Prices for CAD/CAM systems and blocks are expected to gradually decrease throughout the forecast period. As scanning and milling units becomes increasingly affordable, more laboratories and dental clinics will be able to invest in the technology.

Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape

Policy changes and Reimbursement scenario

Australia has a government-funded healthcare scheme, Medicare.  However, in contrast with other health services, the Dental Services industry is predominantly privately funded. Most patients pay for dental care, check-ups and procedures out of their own pocket, and some use private health insurance to subsidize the cost.  Patients with private health insurance are more likely to regularly go to the dentist and undergo expensive procedures.  Approximately 50% of Australians have some level of private health insurance cover for dental expenses.

In 2019, the Australian Government paid benefits averaging $60 per service provided under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. Around one-fifth of dentate adults aged 15 years and over avoided or delayed dental care due to cost in 2019–20.  Adults aged 15 years and over had an average of 11.2 decayed, missing and filled teeth in 2017–18. In 2017–18, about 72,000 hospitalisations for dental conditions may have been prevented with earlier treatment.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) regulates medical devices. Australia’s regulatory framework is based on IMDRF guidelines which means that EU and Australian requirements are similar.  Most medical equipment in Australia are supplied under CE certification, however, under the Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP), the TGA recognizes US FDA regulatory clearance information if presented with a MDSAP certificate.

Australia Dental Care Market Analysis Segmentation

By Product:

Dental instruments are tools used by dental professionals to provide dental treatment. It include tools to examine, manipulate, treat, restore, and remove teeth and surrounding oral structures. The Australian market for dental equipment and supplies is largely import driven with over 90% of the equipment’s being imported. Dental equipment’s were largely imported from Europe, US and Asia. The United States and Europe have traditionally led the market; however, products from Asia, especially Japan have become increasingly popular over the past decade. Domestic production of dental equipments and consumables is very limited and largely limited to tooth filling materials and dental equipments such as dentists’ chairs. Small market size of dental equipments has resulted in companies finding it more cost effective to import goods rather than manufacture locally.

By Treatment:

Based on treatment the market is segmented in Orthodontics, Endodontics, Periodontics, and Prosthodontics. The main factor attributing to the growth of the prosthodontics segment is the increasing demand for dental prostheses across the country and the rising number of people getting older. Prosthodontics has a wide application in the dental problem that has been caused by defective or missing teeth. Furthermore, the rising number of dental practitioners in Australia, the presence of a high-quality healthcare system and increasing awareness among people regarding treatment option is also expected to fuel the market growth over the forecast period.

By End-User:

By end user, the dental clinics segment led the dental services market owing to the higher preferences for the convenient and specialized services offered by dental clinics to the patients in comparison to any other end user.
