Global Dental Air Polishing Unit Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
The World Health Organization (WHO) designated the illness caused by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which first appeared in Wuhan (province of Hubei, China) in the last months of 2019 as "coronavirus disease 2019" or COVID-19. This virus spread quickly and had a serious negative impact on the economies, social behaviors, and healthcare of every country in the world.
COVID-19 affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting production and demand, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to the lockdown, several countries, such as India, China, Brazil, and others, faced problems with regard to the transportation of drugs from one place to another.
COVID-19 had a negative impact on the global dental air polishing unit market. This is because of an increasing number of respiratory diseases that were reported during the COVID period. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advised people not to visit dental clinics unless during emergencies such as uncontrolled bleeding, increased bacterial infection, which has the potential to spread to the respiratory airway, and others. According to the same source, broken braces, dry mouth, mouth irritation, bleeding gums, gingivitis, and plaque buildup are non-emergency dental ailments and can be controlled at home by contacting clinicians without visiting them personally. Thus, such amendment of rules and regulations by regulatory committees is expected to decrease the market growth.
