The global dental surgical devices and equipment market is expected to decline from $5 billion in 2019 to $4 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -20.3%. The decline is mainly due to COVID-19 outbreak and the measures to contain it. Several dental care facilities in affected countries have been completely closed or have been only providing minimal treatment for emergency cases. The restrictions on non-essential medical services including dental services coupled with slowed production of dental equipment and supplies due to extended factory closures in various countries is contributing to the markable decline in the market growth. The market is then expected to recover and grow at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2021 and reach $6.6 billion in 2023.
