Gutta-percha Market Research, 2031

The global gutta-percha market was valued at $196.2 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $385.8 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2022 to 2031. Gutta percha is a strong plastic substance with a significant resin content. It serves primarily as insulation and a long-lasting filling material during root canal procedures. It is produced in Malaysia using the latex of palaquium gutta sapodilla trees. It is a polymer that comes in two different crystal forms, alpha and beta. It is frequently combined with sealer in root canal fillings to create a fluid-tight closure. Three types of gutta percha exist in the market, surface modified gutta-percha, medicated gutta-percha, and nanoparticles enriched gutta-percha. Distribution channels for gutta percha are retail pharmacy and online pharmacy. End users of gutta percha are hospitals, dental clinics, dental academic, and research institutes.

Growth of the global gutta-percha market size is majorly driven by rise in prevalence of dental caries & dental diseases, increase in demand for root canal treatment, increase in number of gutta-percha industry and rise in of geriatric populations. Gutta percha is a material used to fill the tooth after a root canal procedure. Rise in demand for root canal treatment has been observed owing to growth in prevalence of dental diseases such as tooth decay, gum disease, dental crack, and dental cavities. This factor increases the demand for gutta percha to fill up gaps between root canal walls and is anticipated to drive gutta-percha market growth. For instance, according to the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), in 2021 around 25 million root canals take place every year, where more than 41,000 root canals are performed every day in the U.S. As per the same source, it was also reported that general dentists perform approximately 72% root canal procedures and endodontists perform approximately 28% root canal procedures. Thus, number of root canal procedures is on the rise across the globe, thus boosting demand for gutta percha that drives growth of the market. In addition, according to the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), over 15 million root canals take place every year, where more than 41,000 root canals are performed every day in the U.S. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2019, it was estimated about 26% of adults having untreated tooth decay and about 46% of adults with age group 30 or above diagnosed with gum disease in U.S.

Moreover, rise in awareness about several dental diseases and their respective treatments gain popularity mostly in the developing countries such as India, Australia, China, South Korea, and others. Surge in incidence of dental diseases fuels the demand for advanced dental care at affordable cost. Moreover, governments and various regulatory bodies work to provide dental consumables for underserved populations, children, senior citizens, and those who live in remote areas. For instance, the World Health Organization (WHO) runs a Global Oral Health Program (ORH), which is among the technical programs within the Department of Prevention of Non-communicable Diseases (PND).

On the other hand, limited reimbursement for dental procedures and high cost of root canal treatment are anticipated to hinder the gutta-percha market size.
