Market dynamics


The major drivers of the dental insurance market are the growing awareness of oral hygiene. The huge costs of health and dental services have compelled people, especially in developed countries like the United States, to buy dental insurance. The huge population belonging to the geriatric age group has also significantly boosted the market and will further increase the profits during the period 2027-2030. This major factor will lead to the tremendous growth during the forecast period. In addition to other secondary services of primary services such as tooth extraction, drainage of minor to major infectious secretions in the oral cavity, minor to major surgical procedures, treatment of infected oral nerves has also contributed to increase the size of the dental insurance market. The wide variety of conditions covered and reimbursed by the different policies also encourage people to take out dental insurance to avoid the heavy expenses that take place during these treatments.


The market will be inhibited during the increase in medical tourism. The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a sharp decline in the market as there is an increased risk of cross infection during the examination procedure. Reduction in the number of people traveling and commuting during the lockdown period has led to the decline in the market for ancillary dental services such as periodic x-rays, examinations, cleanings, thereby disrupting the market across the globe.


Blockchain has been introduced to the dental insurance market, bringing a great boom to the industry worldwide. The growing awareness of people regarding oral hygiene and dental infections has provided a great opportunity for insurance companies. Oral cancers, dental caries, gum diseases, increasing consumption of sugary products have led to a widespread demand for dental insurance services. A faster and easier reimbursement and claims process will also encourage the masses to buy insurance and have better facilities. These factors mainly highlight the opportunities in the observed forecasts.


The challenge lies where there is a choice to be made by the geriatric age group to have general health insurance or to purchase dental insurance. Recent statistical data has shown that around 50% of this age group does not have basic health insurance as they are overburdened to pay for basic living needs of food, clothing and shelter, which has made dental insurance a subject far behind. Just as most people with health insurance have become accustomed to paying only a small amount of their income for health care, people are also beginning to expect the same from dental school. Affordability issues lead to skipping dentist visits, making the scenario worse and worse.
