Research Nester assesses the growth of the global oral antiseptics market which is anticipated to be on account of the growing demand for the product across emerging countries and the rising geriatric population across the globe.
New York – March 23, 2023 - Research Nester’s recent market research analysis on “Oral Antiseptics Market: Global Demand Analysis & Opportunity Outlook 2035” delivers a detailed competitors analysis and a detailed overview of the global oral antiseptics market in terms of market segmentation by chemical composition, application, form, distribution channel, and by region.
Application of Oral Antiseptic for Growing Geriatric Population to Drive Growth of Global Oral Antiseptics Market
The global oral antiseptic market is estimated to grow majorly on account of maintaining oral health among the geriatric population. Individuals in this age group are more prone to dental problems, such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral infections, which can negatively impact their overall health and well-being. Moreover, dry mouth increases the bacteria in the mouth easily with growing age, leading to tooth decay. In addition, oral cancer is more commonly found in people with age more than 45. Hence, there is a need for them to brush their teeth on a regular basis and use better oral antiseptics for the oral health. Nowadays, dry mouth, dental caries, tooth loss, and oral cancer are some of the most common oral conditions that are found among older people. Therefore, a growing geriatric population is expected to surge the growth of the market in the upcoming years. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for those 65 and older, nearly one in five has lost every tooth. Adults 75 years and older (26%) experienced complete tooth loss twice as frequently as those 65 to 74 years of age (13%).
Some of the major growth factors and challenges that are associated with the growth of the global oral antiseptic market are:
- Increasing Demand and Consumption of Oral Antiseptics Across Emerging Countries
- Growing Percentage of the Geriatric Population Across the Globe
The long-term use of alcohol-containing oral antiseptics may increase the risk of oral cancer, which is one of the major factors anticipated to hamper the growth of the global oral antiseptic market. Furthermore, the alcohol-containing oral antiseptics are solutions or sprays used to help prevent or treat oral infections. The active ingredient in these products is usually a high concentration of alcohol, usually ethanol or isopropanol. Even the manufacturer of oral antiseptics admits that it is dependent on concentration. Whereas, wine has an alcohol content ranging from 7 to 18%, whereas spirits must contain at least 30% alcohol. The disinfecting alcohol sold at the drugstore, on the other hand, contains 70-99% alcohol. Mouthwashes containing up to 25% alcohol do not have an antibacterial effect. Therefore, it is expected to hamper the market’s growth over the forecast period.
By chemical composition, the global oral antiseptic market is segmented into chlorhexidine gluconate, cetylpyridinium chloride, herbs & essential oils, and others. The cetylpyridinium chloride segment is anticipated to hold the highest share of 74.2% in the year 2022, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period. This can be attributed to applications of cetylpyridinium chloride for oral health in different ways. It is used in preventing and removing gingivitis, as an effective solution that can be added to mouthwash, toothpaste, and other forms. Moreover, cetylpyridinium chloride has a broad antimicrobial spectrum as an active ingredient in antiseptic oral mouth rinses, with a rapid bactericidal effect on gram-positive pathogens and a fungicide effect on yeasts in particular. Therefore, all these factors are expected to rise the growth of the segment over the forecast period. For instance, mouthwash, and toothpastes containing cetylpyridinium chloride inactivate nearly 99 percent of the virus that causes the COVID-19 pandemic.
