Articaine Hydrochloride Market Overview

The articaine hydrochloride market is expected to reach USD 1383.34 Million by 2030 at 8.10% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030.

Articaine is a form of a local amide anesthetic that is most commonly used in dentistry. The articaine is marketed as a colorless liquid in vials/cartridges (2ml in each vial/cartridge). It is available in two variants, i.e., Articaine-100 & Articaine-200. Articaine-200 is more potent than Articaine-100. The dosage can be based on the type and extent of surgical procedure, depth of anesthesia, degree of muscular relaxation, and condition of the patient. For pediatric patients, dosage based on their age, weight, the physical condition of the patient, and the extent of the surgical procedure.

The articaine hydrochloride industry is growing rapidly. Articaine, with its greater ability to diffuse through tissues, become a very widely used local anesthetic in the European and Canadian markets.

Market Dynamics

Articaine hydrochloride is the most popular local anesthetic for dentistry. For example, in Germany, around 97% of the anesthetic used by dentists is articaine hydrochloride. The growth of the market is likely to be driven by increasing incidences of dental caries and other periodontal diseases, advancement in dental anesthesia delivery system device, increasing the use of articaine for dental surgery, innovative nature of the dental anesthetics industry, and vigorous research and development efforts. Periodontal disease is one of the major dental diseases that influence human populations worldwide at high prevalence rates. Periodontal diseases are more prevalent in Asia-Pacific. Lack of the most basic oral health education and limited availability of simple interventions like pain relief and emergency care for acute infection and trauma to the vast majority of the population, especially in the rural areas are major reasons for the high incidences of periodontal diseases in the region. According to the FDI World Dental Federation, more than 80% of people in Asia-Pacific, including countries such as India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Malaysia, and Indonesia, suffer from dental decay. Furthermore, 40–59% of the population in China and Australia suffer from dental caries.

Some of the popular local anesthesia other than articaine are prilocaine, lidocaine, mepivacaine, and bupivacaine. The availability and usage of alternative products are likely to thwart the growth of the articaine hydrochloride market during the forecast period.
