Growing awareness of dental regimens among people worldwide drives the development of oral irrigators. An increase in periodontal diseases in developing economies leads to the growing utilization of oral irrigation devices, and the introduction of innovative products, including faucet power water flossers and other advanced devices, anticipates industry growth.

Also, they are proven to reduce the overall amount of bacteria and remove 99% more plaque than brushing alone. Primarily when used in conjunction with brushing and flossing, it reduces the incidence of gum bleeding, helps control gingivitis, and improves bad breath, which has propelled the market’s growth.

Various end users, such as individuals with uneven teeth, dental implants, braces, and gum diseases, have been shifting from string flossing to water flossers due to ease of use and efficiency in preventing gum diseases. As oral irrigators use pressurized flossers to remove debris that is harder to get to with a toothbrush, or even high-end, powered toothbrushes, the demand for oral irrigators has witnessed a string growth.

Routine dental procedures such as polishing, cleaning, and whitening are aerosol-generating procedures in which the risk of infection is high, and there is a need to reopen dental facilities with stricter norms. According to a news article, the practices would have to follow more stringent standards and protocols, resulting in a fee hike and hampering the oral irrigator market during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The oral irrigator market is growing by the increasing use of technologically advanced dental goods in home care settings. Ease in the finding of oral irrigators in pharmacy stores, online portals, and other distribution channels have positively impacted the demand for sales, production, and supply chain of goods in the oral irrigator industry, augmenting the growth.

Launching novel devices such as faucet-powered water flossers and other cutting-edge gadgets that provide ease for daily help is a crucial factor propelling the industry’s growth. For instance, more than 12 new oral irrigators with individual characteristics and technological advancements are introduced every year. Modern water flossers typically have cordless systems built in, some have rechargeable batteries, and some have locks on the water tanks to prevent leaks.

Periodontal diseases result in inflammation and infections of the gums and bone surrounding and supporting the teeth. The growing frequency of periodontal diseases across the globe is anticipated to augment the growth of the oral irrigator market over the forecast period.

For instance, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, periodontal diseases are prevalent in developed and developing countries and affect around 20 to 50% of the global population. Additionally, the rise in pet ownership, pet insurance, veterinary expenditures, and disposable income is increasing for pet hygiene which has driven the growth of the oral irrigator market.
