The market for endodontic files is projected to expand rapidly during the forecast timeframe, owing to a rise in the prevalence of dental disease and conditions and increased knowledge about oral hygiene, which are expected to drive the market for endodontic files. Oral disorders affect an estimated 3.5 billion people worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), with caries of permanent teeth being one of the most common problems. Dental caries affect around 2.3 billion people worldwide, with 530 million children suffering from primary dental caries. Globally, the elderly population with dental disorders is growing. As a result, the need for dental restoration is growing, driving up demand for endodontic consumables.
The endodontic files market is seeing exponential growth. The main factors driving the market's growth for endodontic files include increasing root canal procedures across the globe, availability of advanced instruments, increasing geriatric population, and increased reimbursement facilities in the developed regions.
Dental procedures are increasing worldwide as people giving more importance to dental care in recent years. In the US alone, more than 15 million root canal procedures are conducted every year, which is approximately 40,000 procedures per day. The increasing procedures of a root canal are the primary force behind the market growth for endodontic files during the forecast period.
The rising old age population is also projected to contribute to the market growth significantly. Globally, nearly 1 billion people are living who are aged above 60, and the number is anticipated to increase to almost 2 billion by 2050. Since aged people are prone to dental complications, the market for endodontic files will hugely benefit from this increase in the aging population.
Many advanced instruments are launched in the market to meet the needs of dental care. For instance, in December 2020, ZenFlexTMNiTi Rotary Shaping File was launched by Kerr Dental. The instrument's design is minimally invasive and delivers enhanced resistance to cyclic fatigue and torsional stress while conducting procedures even in complex canal anatomies.
FKG Dentaire launched R-Motion, in July 2020. It is a heat-treated Ni-Ti reciprocating device consisting of 5 reciprocating products and a mechanized glide path and instruments for shaping. Dentsply Sirona launched TruNatomy, in December 2019, and the system capitalizes on the company's already available products like WaveOne Gold and ProTaper families. It is designed with slimmer NiTi wire for improved efficiency and speed.
COVID-19 is expected to significantly hamper the growth of the market as most dental clinics across the globe are shut during the pandemic due to the safety of both patients and dental practitioners. Procedures like root canals are not critical emergency procedures, and hence they are postponed. The situation is expected to improve in a short time, and once the situation normalizes, the market for endodontic files will see an upward growth.
The market is primarily segmented on the basis of type, material, distribution channel, end-use, and region.
By Distribution Channel

The manual endodontic files segment generated the highest revenue in 2020. The segment is expected to maintain its lead over the forecast period. This expansion can be attributed to clinicians' tendency to conduct root canal procedures using a regulated method. The evolving technology in NiTi endodontic files with varying designs, materials, applications, and manufacturing processes boosts the market forward.
The stainless-steel endodontic files segment generated the highest revenue in 2020 and is expected to maintain its share during the forecast timeframe owing to easy accessibility and cost-effectiveness. Stainless steel and nickel-titanium are the segmentation based on the material.
The NiTi endodontic files material segment is expected to grow fastest during the forecast period due to increasing demand for technically advanced and processed products that improve material characteristics, leading to increased flexibility, fewer operational errors, and shorter instrumentation times.
The NiTi material is more often used in rotary systems, but hand files made of NiTi are often used in regular and complicated treatment, offering greater flexibility than stainless steel endodontic files.
Offline distribution channel dominated the industry for endodontic files and generated the highest revenue in 2020. The segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. The offline distribution channel is the most opted conventional approach to procuring medical tools exclusively from suppliers, distributors, and manufacturers, leading to segment growth.
Over the forecast period, the online distribution channel segment for the industry of the endodontic file is expected to grow at the fastest pace. This expansion is due to the rapid developments in online commerce networks, which necessitate cost-effective solutions to handle the supplier base and respond to changing customer demands.
North American endodontic files industry is expected to be the most prominent region for the market during the forecast period owing to the availability of modern devices, an increasing number of root canal procedures, continuous production of the product for improved quality, and increasing awareness among the public about these procedures.
The availability of reimbursement for dental procedures in countries like the U.S. will further drive the growth of the market in the region. According to the American Association of Endodontists, the United States performs about 15 million root canals each year, contributing to around 35% of the global industry.
The increasing number of dental care centers, the dental tourism sector, increased R&D in manufacturing, and the knowledge about dental care in Asia Pacific's emerging economies contribute to the region's growth.
Governments in countries like India invest in dental care and provide dental treatments at subsidized prices in government facilities. The improvement of healthcare infrastructure in this region will further fuel the region's growth.
Major players in the market for endodontic files are investing in R&D investments for the development of advanced and efficient instruments, and the companies are also entering into collaboration and acquisitions to widen their market reach across the globe.
Some of the major players operating in the endodontic files market include Henry Schein, Dentsply Sirona, Ultradent Products, Ivoclar Vivadent, FKG Dentaire, Coltene, Brasseler Holdings, LLC., and Micro-Mega.
