Upsurge in the elderly population and the increasing emphasis on oral hygiene represent pivotal trends propelling the advancement of the market. The expanding global geriatric demographic is poised to precipitate a surge in ulcer cases. Notably, the United Nations Organization (UNO) forecasts a substantial growth from 12% to 22% in the population aged 60 years and above, spanning the years between 2015 and 2022. Concurrently, the heightened demand for denture fittings within this age group is anticipated to correlate with an elevation in occurrences of ill-fitting dentures and deficiencies in essential nutrients like vitamin B and folic acid. These circumstances can contribute to the onset of mouth ulcers.

The acclimatization process for newly inserted dentures requires a certain period. Throughout this adjustment phase, the inner oral environment retains moisture, creating conditions conducive to the development of fungal infections that can ultimately result in the formation of ulcers. This susceptibility to oral issues is notably prevalent among the older demographic, who frequently encounter such circumstances. Furthermore, the senior population commonly experiences a deficit in essential vitamins, which further heightens their vulnerability to the occurrence of mouth ulcers.

The anticipated upswing in market growth during the forecast period is attributed to the burgeoning consciousness regarding oral hygiene within developing nations. Remarkably, efforts such as oral hygiene campaigns in rural regions of these countries contribute positively to the market dynamics. For instance, Colgate-Palmolive Company orchestrates an annual oral health month in India's rural areas to enhance awareness concerning oral hygiene practices. These proactive endeavors are poised to stimulate individuals to seek necessary treatments actively. Moreover, the escalating prevalence of tobacco usage in countries like the UK and Mexico is expected to amplify the occurrence of mouth ulcers, consequently fostering market expansion.
