The demand for mouth ulcers treatment has been on a rise due to increasing prevalence of mouth ulcers due to rise in tobacco consumption globally and smoking cessation, as smoking cessation causes mouth ulcers and occur often in smokers. Therefore, this increases the occurrences of mouth ulcers due to tobacco stomatitis or smoker's palate, (inflammation of mucus membranes in oral cavity), which is expected to propel the market growth of mouth ulcers treatment.

Moreover, use of chemical-based toothpaste and consumption of more citric foods or acidic fruits and vegetables, such as lemons, oranges, pineapples, apples, figs, tomatoes, strawberries, further increase the chances of mouth ulcers. Therefore, rising tobacco usage, smoking cessation, chemical-based toothpaste, and acidic foods are the factors that are driving the growth of the mouth ulcers treatment market.

Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping one's mouth clean, free of disease, and other dental conditions. There has been an increasing demand for oral and dental hygiene mainly due to self-consciousness. Mouth ulcers occur often as a result of infection from plaque bacteria on the teeth; poor oral hygiene also plays a contributory role in the development of mouth ulcers. Self-consciousness among individuals for oral and dental hygiene has been on rise, including orthodontic, periodontics, endodontic, and various other cosmetic dentistry services. Injury from orthodontic braces, which are used for alignment of the teeth, poor-fitting dentures, and other apparatus that may rub against the mouth and gums is one of the causes of occurrence of mouth ulcers.

Various bacterial, viral, and fungal infections caused by poor oral hygiene can trigger mouth ulcer while minor injuries due to sports or any other activities in oral cavity also lead to mouth ulcers and infections. Canker ulcers also occur due to certain nutritional deficiencies. Thus, various factors, such as mouth ulcers due to orthodontics braces, minor injuries and various initiatives by the government and dental associations for the importance of oral hygiene, are expected to drive the mouth ulcers treatment market. Therefore, it is expected to create a positive impact during the forecast period.

Increase in overall population, especially the geriatric, has led to the increase in cases of people having mouth ulcers or sores. Mouth ulcers as a result of various medical condition or nutritional deficiencies, such as celiac or Crohn's disease, vitamin B12 or iron deficiency, or a weakened immune system, in elderly population may all trigger ulcers or sores to form. These oral health problems and illnesses connected with aging are frequently complicated and can have a negative impact on one's quality of life. Any oral diseases or conditions associated with aging are complex and can have a significant effect on the quality of life for geriatric population. 

In addition, increasing overall population specific geriatric and unhealthy lifestyle changes, stress, anxiety, tobacco use, and consumption of more chemical & acidic-based food in younger generation led to repetitive occurrences of mouth ulcers. Thus, all these factors are expected to contribute toward driving the mouth ulcers treatment market.

In addition, there are opportunities in untapped, emerging markets with high potential due to improved healthcare infrastructure, increase in unmet healthcare needs, and rise in prevalence of mouth ulcers. Availability of various pharmaceutical-based ulcer treatment products, such as drugs, including analgesics, corticosteroids, antihistamine, antimicrobial, anesthetic, various applicants in the form of sprays, mouthwash, gels, lozenges, ointments, and others at affordable cost and their availability as an OTC product is an emerging opportunity for the key players of the market to invest in the mouth ulcers treatment market, which will further accelerate the expansion of the market, thereby offering significant growth opportunities for the market during the forecast period.
