Industry Analysis

Over the past five years, the Dental industry experienced largely positive growth, as advances in dental technology and improved access to care for older adults resulted in greater gains. The industry benefited from rising disposable income and a relatively low unemployment rate, resulting in more consumers with healthcare coverage.

The average industry operator is expected to experience relatively high profit. The industry has historically experienced high margins, as a result, the industry is expected to continue expanding over the next five years, with more operators entering the field.

Industry revenue is projected to grow, increasing at an annualized rate of 2.3%. In particular, demand for industry services will come from older adults, who tend to need more serious and more frequent dental care as they age. In addition, the expansion of dental care through Medicaid will enable low-income adults to access the care they need. A relatively low unemployment rate will also support coverage and thus accessibility of industry services.
