The rising incidence of oral cancer will likely contribute to the expansion of the Oral Cancer Treatment Market. Increasing rates of oral cancer risk factors, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, are also propelling the demand for oral cancer treatments. In addition, the availability of advanced technologies and treatments, such as surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy, is driving the Oral Cancer Treatment Market. 


Increases in the global geriatric population are anticipated to present dental caries treatment market participants with lucrative growth opportunities. For example, dentures, a lack of dexterity, a transition from complex to simple carbohydrates, and inadequate oral hygiene increase the risk of root caries in the elderly. 


In addition, the growing understanding of the significance of early detection and diagnosis of oral cancer is driving the demand for screening and diagnostic tests such as biopsies, imaging tests, and blood tests. This is anticipated to contribute to the growth of the Oral Cancer Treatment Market, as early detection and treatment can improve patient outcomes and survival rates. 


Major market participants are investing heavily in R&D to expand their product lines, which will help the oral cancer treatment market expand even further. Key market developments such as new product launches, contractual agreements, mergers and acquisitions, increased investments, and collaboration between organizations are among the strategic measures that market participants are implementing to expand their global footprint.

  • Increase in prevalence of oral cancer to boost market growth


The rising prevalence of oral cancer is likely to support the growth of the Oral Cancer Treatment Market. According to the American Cancer Society, the incidence of oral and oropharyngeal cancer has been increasing in recent years. In 2021, an estimated 54,010 people in the United States will be diagnosed with oral cavity or oropharyngeal cancer, and an estimated 10,850 will die from the disease. The increasing prevalence of risk factors for oral cancer, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, is also driving the demand for oral cancer treatments. Additionally, the availability of advanced technologies and treatments, such as surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy, is contributing to the growth of the Oral Cancer Treatment Market. Furthermore, the rising awareness about the importance of early detection and diagnosis of oral cancer is driving the demand for screening and diagnostic tests, such as biopsies, imaging tests, and blood tests. This is expected to further support the growth of the Oral Cancer Treatment Market, as early detection and treatment can improve the outcomes and survival rates for patients with oral cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute, in the United States in 2021, there were an estimated 53,260 new cases of oral and oropharyngeal cancer and an estimated 10,750 deaths from these cancers.


Global geriatric population increase is anticipated to offer players in the dental caries treatment market with lucrative growth prospects. For instance, dentures, a lack of dexterity, a switch from complex to simple carbohydrates, and poor oral hygiene put the elderly at risk for developing root caries. According to the American Dental Association, older persons are more likely to develop root caries as a result of increased xerostomia-producing medication use as well as increased gingival recession, which exposes root surfaces. More than 50% of people 75 years and older have at least one tooth affected by root caries.


Dental technology developments are anticipated to provide companies in the dental caries treatment market with lucrative growth prospects. For instance, Pearl raised US$ 11 million in May 2019 to use AI to evaluate dental scans (Artificial Intelligence). According to the company, it will simplify tedious, repetitive operations, boost profits across dentistry, and—most notably the level of care by validating diagnoses and removing significant amounts of ambiguity from the dental equation.
