Demand for dental products in China will climb eleven percent annually through 2012. Toothpaste will continue to dominate the key consumer segment, while lower volume products such as whitening strips, floss and dentures lead gains. The professional segment will outpace the consumer market, spurred by more dental visits per year.
This study analyzes the 12.8 billion yuan dental product industry in China. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by product (e.g., toothpaste, mouthwash, dental floss, prosthetics, fillings, orthodontic appliances, veneers, adhesives and cements), raw material (e.g., metals, chemicals, ceramics and minerals, polymers) and region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 31 industry players, including Colgate-Palmolive, Procter & Gamble and Unilever Group.
