Market Synopsis of Global Dental Wax Market

Dental wax is a mixture of different type of waxes with synthetic additives, used in dentistry for casting, sizing and mapping of structures and jaw relations, laboratory work and as lubricants to relieve friction associated with braces and other dental implants. Dental wax is an opaque hydrophobic material, mostly produced from petroleum and vegetable sources, which softens on being pressed or heated. Self-setting dental waxes are used for the purpose of mapping dental structures during the manufacturing of dental caps and custom sized implants. Softer dental waxes are used to relieve discomfort caused by orthodontic implants such as braces, wires, etc. They also relieve from irritation caused by rubbing of the brace or tooth arch wire against the cheek. Synthetic materials such as silicon based waxes have however encroached on the natural sources. A variety of additives are added to modify their physical properties to make them suitable for their intended use. The important properties of dental waxes are their melting point, flow properties etc. Melting range, and flow improve the product characteristics which causes the market to rise due to increased demand.

Increasing use of dental fixtures and treatments, rising awareness of dental diseases, increasing penetration of dentistry in the healthcare setup of many countries, rising use of dental implants drive the growth of the market. Additionally, positive influence of media and fashion industry on rising dental aesthetics demand and increasing awareness adding fuel to the dental waxes market.

Various disadvantages, for instance, discomfort due to hydrophobic nature and reduction in mouth movements are likely to affect market negatively. Furthermore, dental wax extend the healing time due to their tissue softening effect and hinder the natural hardening tissue process, which, in turn, may hamper the demand for the dental wax over the review period.

The global dental waxes market is expected to reach US$ 1.2 billion by 2023, and the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of ~ 5.2 % during the forecast period 2017-2023.
