The global dental amalgam separator market is estimated to be valued at US$ 28.0 million in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 0.85% during the forecast period (2023-2030).

Analysts’ Views on Global Dental Amalgam Separator Market:

The global dental amalgam separator market's growth can be hindered by a lack of awareness about the use of dental amalgam separator devices. For instance, according to the data published by National Center for Biotechnology Information in May 2018, The Minamata Convention on Mercury is an international legally binding treaty that aims to protect human health and the environment from anthropogenic emissions and releases of mercury and mercury compounds and raised awareness to phase down the use of dental amalgam and guidelines regarding the use of dental amalgam separator

Global Dental Amalgam Separator Market- Regional Analysis

Among regions, North America is estimated to hold a dominant position in the global dental amalgam separator market over the forecast period. North America holds 36.5% of the market share due to the increasing demand for dental amalgam separators in the region. According to data published by ResearchGate Journal, in July 2022, the dental amalgam separator demand has increased in the region due to increasing dental practice in the U.S.

Global Dental Amalgam Separator Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease spread to over 100 countries across the globe, and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.

COVID-19 affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand of drugs, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and others are facing problems with the transportation of drugs from one place to another.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the global dental amalgam separator market. For instance, in October 2020, according to the data published in ScienceDirect, during the COVID-19 pandemic, it was stated a dental setting is at a high risk of the cross infection among patients and dental practitioners owing to the spread of infection via droplets suspended in the air by infected symptomatic or asymptomatic subjects.

Global Dental Amalgam Separator Market Segmentation:

The global dental amalgam separator market report is segmented into Type, End User, and Region

Based on Type, the market is segmented into sedimentation units, centrifugal units, filtration units, and others (Ion exchange, etc.). Out of which, the sedimentation unit segment is expected to hold a dominant position in the dental amalgam separator market during the forecast period and this is attributed due to the increasing use of sedimentation units. As sedimentation units are one of the basic types of amalgam separation technologies which decrease the time and used mostly for the dental amalgam waste management.

Based on End User, the market is segmented into hospitals, dental clinics, and others. Out of which, the hospital segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period and this is attributed to the increase in the number of dental clinics over the forecast period.

Among all segmentation, the type segment has the highest potential due to the increasing use of sedimentation units for dental amalgam waste management.

Global Dental Amalgam Separator Market Cross Sectional Analysis:

In end-user segment, dental clinics hold a dominant segment in North America region due to increasing demand for dental clinics and the rising incidence of dental practices by dentists in that region will fuel the market.

Global Dental Amalgam Separator Market: Key Developments

Effective use of dental amalgam separators for mercury reduction is expected to drive the global dental amalgam separator market growth over the forecast period. For instance, according to the data published by National Center for Biotechnology Information, in December 2021, a study was aimed to clarify the mercury amount remaining in the oral cavity and inside the drain system after removal. Then the dental waste sample was collected in two ways (amalgam separator and gas-liquid separator), and their mercury amounts were measured. It was found that amalgam separators can significantly reduce the amount of mercury in the discharge water and prevent the draining of mercury into the environment as compared to the gas-liquid separator.

Global Dental Amalgam Separator Market: Key Trends

Increasing demand for amalgam separators is expected to drive the dental amalgam separator market growth over the forecast period.

Increasing demand for amalgam separators for the separation of accumulated dental amalgam in the environment is expected to drive the global dental amalgam separator market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in June 2019, according to the data published by National Center for Biotechnology Information, mercury used in products and processes including dental amalgams, is a global pollutant. Its toxic legacy gets continued for decades because of its pervasive bioaccumulation in the environment. Using mercury amalgam separators decrease the mercury from dental offices, thereby eliminating a major source of mercury pollution.
