Electric dental handpieces are devices by dentist to perform various procedures such as cavity preparation, crown preparation, decay removal, and endodontics. Electric dental handpieces utilizes electric motor, which is attached to a shaft with gears and these gears are attached with bur (part that performs actual cutting). Whereas, air driven dental handpiece run on compressed air that rotates the turbine, which rotates the bur. These electric handpieces have several advantages over air driven dental handpieces such as consistent speed and torque. Electric dental handpieces offer speed control (RPM from 100 to 2, 00000) and higher torque (greater cutting power), and produces less noise and less vibration, hence does not produce heat in the operating area. Other advantages include greater accessibility, more precise operation, and no malfunction of turbine as compared to air driven handpiece.

High prevalence of oral diseases is expected to drive growth of the electric dental handpiece market

Rising prevalence of oral diseases is expected to propel growth of the electric dental hand piece market. According to FDI World Dental Federation’s Oral Health Atlas, 2015, oral disease affected 3.9 billion people worldwide, with untreated tooth decay that impacts approximately 44% of world’s population. According to World Health Organization’s Oral Health factsheet, 2012, globally, 60–90% of schoolchildren and around 100% adults have tooth decay, often leading to pain and discomfort. Another factor for growth of the market is increasing aging population. For instance, according to WHO (World Health Organization) Oral Healthcare factsheet, 2012, globally, around 30% of people with age 65-75 years have no natural teeth and burden is expected to increase. Need for dentist across the globe is increasing, for instance according to WHO factsheet in 2017, 93% of its member nations has less than 1 dentist per 1000 population, electric dental hand piece market would prosper in near future as it is integral part of dentistry setup . Advancements in technology and continuous improvement in dental hand pieces is another factor further expected to drive growth of the electric dental hand piece market. For instance, in August 2017, KaVO Dental GmbH launched electromatic series, which provides constant torque, controlled speed, low noise operation, and increased versatility, which would make transition from air driven handpiece to electric driven hand piece, easy for dentists. Other factors such as increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry would further aid in growth of the electric dental handpiece market, report by  The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons in 2016 has estimated that 69% of adults between the ages of 35 and 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth so they opts for cosmetic dentistry.

However, repairing of electric handpieces is expensive than air handpieces. Cost associated with replacement of parts of electric handpiece such as clutch assemblies, cartridge, and drive shaft is relatively expensive, which may hinder growth of the market. Also, problems related to reimbursement scenario with dental procedures may limit dentist visit by patients and is expected to negatively affect growth of the electric hand piece market.

Electric Dental Hand Piece Market Taxonomy:

North America and Europe are expected to exhibit high growth in the global electric dental hand piece market over the forecast period

Regions such as North America and Europe are expected to exhibit high growth in the global electric dental handpiece market, due to various factors such as increasing aging population, availability of high end dentistry instruments, and easy access of these devices to dentist. According to Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, 2012, 47.2% of adults over 30 years of age and older have some form of periodontal disease and 70.1% of adults aged 65 and above have periodontal disease in U.S. Europe is expected to be major market, owing to increasing expenditure of people in the region on oral health. For instance, according to report by Oral Health Platform of European Union, 2012, 27 European countries, together, accounted for US$ 97 billion expenditure, which is highest in world. North America market is in transition phase from air driven to electric driven hand pieces.
