Global Oral Antiseptics Market to Reach US$ 3.7 Billion by 2032, Fueled by Rising Prevalence of Numerous Oral and Dental Disorders

April 10, 2023 | Healthcare

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­­Oral Antiseptics Market by Chemical Composition (Chlorhexidine Gluconate, Cetylpyridinium Chloride, Herbal and Essential Oil, and Others), Form (Solution, Gel), Distribution Channel (Drug Stores, Retail Pharmacies, Online Stores, Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, and Others), Application (Dental Care, Oral Cleaning, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global oral antiseptics market size reached US$ 2.5 Billion in 2023. Oral antiseptics are a type of medication that is used to kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms in the mouth and throat. They are liquid products with various chemical compositions of active ingredients such as chlorhexidine, cetylpyridinium chloride, hydrogen peroxide, and essential oils. These products can be found in multiple forms, such as mouthwash, lozenges, sprays, and gargles, and are used to rinse the teeth, gums, and mouth. Oral antiseptics help prevent or treat oral infections, such as caries, plaque formation, gingivitis, thrush, and tonsillitis, and reduce bad breath caused by oral bacteria. They can easily reach inaccessible mouth areas that are difficult to clean with a toothbrush and are typically used in combination with regular oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing. 

Global Oral Antiseptics Market Trends:

The escalating consumer awareness regarding the importance of oral care and hygiene is primarily driving the market growth. Besides this, the widespread prevalence of oral and dental disorders, such as plaque, cavities, gum diseases, bad breath, tooth decay, gingivitis, and thrush, due to the changing dietary habits of the masses and increased consumption of processed foods, alcohol, tobacco, and sweets is impelling the market growth. Moreover, the escalating product utilization in dental care regimens, such as sterilizing osteonecrotic bone, irrigating extraction sockets, and harvesting bone chips, is contributing to the market growth. Concurrent with this, the rising adoption of natural and organic oral care products that act as mild antiseptics to clean minor cuts or disinfect mouth surfaces is presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. In addition to this, the growing demand for breath refreshers composed of oral antiseptics with various essential oils, such as thyme, peppermint, and eucalyptus, represents another significant growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, easy product availability through proliferating e-commerce channels, the bolstering growth of the healthcare industry, and the implementation of various government initiatives promoting oral hygiene are creating a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 3.7 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 4.34% during 2024-2032.
