Market Scenario

Global Sleeping Bruxism Treatment Market is expected to register 6.7% CAGR and is projected to reach USD 638.2 million by 2023. Sleeping bruxism (SB), also called nocturnal tooth grinding, is a medical condition characterized by clenching or grinding of teeth during sleep. This is the sleep-associated movement disorder characterized by involuntary, unconscious movement during sleep. The use of psychoactive substances such as tobacco, alcohol, antidepressants, cigarette smoking, or caffeine increases sleep disorders and causes daytime sleepiness. Sleep bruxism is highly prevalent in people who consume psychoactive substances.

According to the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) 2013, one in six Americans consume antidepressants or a sedative. The United Nations reported in 2007 that approximately 1 billion people worldwide suffer from neurological disorders such as Alzheimer, Parkinson disease, strokes, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and others.

Factors representing the market growth are worldwide increasing the prevalence of sleep bruxism, growing child population, rising prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea, and changing lifestyle across the world. An article published in the Springer Nature journal stated that the prevalence of sleep bruxism is generally considered to be around 8 to 13% of the general population across the globe. On the contrary, the limited availability of treatment options and the high cost of custom-fit night guards are the factors anticipated to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.

Market Dynamics

The globally rising prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea is likely to propel the demand for sleeping bruxism diagnosis and treatment drugs. According to an article published in Lancet Respiratory Medicine (LRM), currently, the global prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea is estimated to be around 1 billion individuals. Another 425 million adults are expected to have moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea across the world.

Regional Analysis

Based on region, the global sleeping bruxism treatment market is segmented into the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa.

Rising prevalence of stress and anxiety, chronic sleep disorders and intermittent sleep problems, changing lifestyle, and the presence of prominent market players in the US and Canada are expected to support the dominance of the Americas during 2018 to 2023. For instance, according to the National Sleep Foundation, presently, 50 to 70 million Americans are affected by chronic sleep disorders and intermittent sleep problems, which significantly diminish health, attentiveness, and safety.

Europe follows the Americas in terms of revenue and is expected to register the fastest market growth over the forecast period. According to the European Orthodontic Society in 2018, sleeping bruxism affected 14% to 20% of children, 8% to 12% of teenagers, and 3% of the old population.

Asia-Pacific would register considerable market growth during the forecast period attributed to the rapid adoption of advanced healthcare technology, fast economic growth, large population size, and rising healthcare investments. As per the data presented by United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), the percentage of the population aged 0 to14 was 23.5% in 2018, which is projected to decrease to 17.7% by 2050.

The Middle East & Africa is expected to represent least market growth owing to the less exposure to the healthcare services, lack of awareness about sleeping bruxism, ignorance of dental diseases, and lack of government rules and regulations.

Sleeping Bruxism Treatment – Summary

The global sleeping bruxism treatment market is expected to touch USD 638.22 million valuation by 2023, expanding at a modest CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period (2018-2023), reports Market Research Future (MRFR). Sleeping bruxism is a disorder in which people grind or clench their teeth during sleep. This incident is quite natural. However, if the rate goes higher, it can damage the teeth or affect the jaw muscles.

According to a study published by Sleep Research Society (SRS), generally 5-8% people suffer from this disorder resulting in tooth wear and headaches which inadvertently distresses their lifestyle. This can give rise to preventive measures such as anti-depressants, mouth guard, muscle relaxants, and others and provide a favorable condition for the market.

Mayo Foundation’s report for the Medical Education and Research on sleeping bruxism reveals that the prevalence of bruxism among children varied from 3.5-40.6% and was seconded by the Journal of Conservative Dentistry. Both the reports suggested a hike in the number of affected children population. With the U.S. Census Bureau’s count of 74.7 million children by 2023, it has become even more disconcerting. This daunting number can drive the market further.  

However, there is no specific cure for sleeping bruxism.  The available medications have side-effects which destabilize the physiological system. This could impede the market growth during the forecast period.


The global market for sleeping bruxism treatment can be segmented by type, diagnosis, treatment, cause, patient, and end-user.

By type, the market includes primary bruxism and secondary bruxism. Primary bruxism occurs without any medical condition, and mainly the clenching or grinding of teeth takes place. Currently, the predicted segment valuation is USD 168.74 million which it can achieve by 2023. Secondary bruxism is often triggered by neurological disorders or by psychoactive substance consumption. This segment accounted for 72.7 % of the global market share.

Diagnosis-wise segmentation includes clinical examination, electromyographic methods, polysomnography, x-ray, and others. The disorder is not life-threatening but can result in dental problems making its early diagnosis necessary.

Treatment-based segmentation includes dental approaches and medications. It’s not always necessary for children as they tend to outgrow it with age. However, severe cases demand treatment and the dental approaches segment could reach up to a significant valuation during the forecast period. Dental medication commanded around 68.6% of the global market in 2017.

Based on cause, the market comprises obstructive sleep apnea, sleep paralysis, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), malocclusion, and others. Reports of National Sleep Foundation reveals that one in four people suffer from obstructive sleep apnea which gives rise to sleeping bruxism. The market for obstructive sleep apnea is projected to reach USD 233.20 million at a 7% CAGR during the review period.

Based on patient type, the market is segmented into pediatric and adult. According to KidsHealth, 3 out of 10 children suffer from bruxism. Pediatric segment currently dominates the market with 68.5% of the global share in 2017 and in the foreseeable future, is expected to do so by reaching USD 440.28 million mark with a CAGR of 6.8% during the prognosis period.

The end-user segment includes hospitals, dental clinics, and others. With considerable technological advancements, hospitals and clinics now have ample provisions to take care of the situation. As the frontrunner, hospitals and clinics are projected to reach USD 270.50 million valuation during the review period.

Regional Segmentation:

Geographically the market covers the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and the Middle East & Africa (MEA).

The Americas dominated the market in 2017 by holding 39.1% of the market share. This is due to the rising cases of stress and anxiety related diseases among the populace. According to the American Sleep Association, 10% of the adults and 15% of the children are affected by the disease. Almost 8.3 million of the U.S. population are suffering from the disease as reported by the World Socialist Website in 2017. The market in the region, with an astounding 6.9% CAGR can reach USD 252.27 million by 2023.

Europe is the second largest market where as per the European Orthodontic Society in 2014-2015 sleeping bruxism was prevalent in 14 to 20% of children, 8 to 12% of teenagers and 3% of the adult population. Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is also a significant factor in the growth of this market as according to the reports of the European Lung Foundation, 3-7% male and 2-5% female suffer from the disease.

APAC is expected to open up possibilities owing to its significant investment in healthcare, economic growth, large population base, and adoption of advanced healthcare technology. As per the reports of State of the World’s Children 2016, UNICEF, South Asia has 627 million children population, almost 36% of the total population and the number is on the rise giving the market a favorable condition. Also, bruxism and dental care related awareness are spreading rapidly in countries such as India, China, Japan and South Korea which can boost the market.

Market Competition:

APAC market is growing bigger day by day. According to the World Dental Show in 2017, the Indian dental market is expected to witness a staggering CAGR of 16% by the end of 2018 and reach USD 242.81 million valuation. In Australia, as per the reports of Snore Australia, 9% of women and 25% of men suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. This could also open up the market for further possibilities and also could lure in international players.
