According to a report, “Dental Compressors Market Analysis By Product (Lubricated Compressor, Oil-Free Compressor), By Technology (Desiccant Based, Membrane Based), By Application (Handpieces, Scalers, Chair Valves) And Segment Forecasts To 2020” published by Grand View Research, Inc. Global dental compressors market is expected to reach USD 315.88 Million by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Growing worldwide prevalence of dental disorders is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. Introduction of new products based on oil free technology such as AirStar 12 and AirStar 40 which are maintenance free and provide ultra-dry and clean air are also expected to serve the dental compressors market as drivers. Furthermore, commercialization of membrane based compressors is expected to boost usage rates. Key advantages associated with these compressors include low installation and operating costs, no moving parts and their ability to function in hazardous atmospheres. Moreover, membrane based dryers not only supply hygienic, dry and oil free air but also minimize infection risks and increase treatment efficiency by reducing maintenance levels.
With Covid-19 infections rising globally, the apprehension regarding a shortage of essential life-saving devices and other essential medical supplies in order to prevent the spread of this pandemic and provide optimum care to the infected also widens. In addition, till a pharmacological treatment is developed, ventilators act as a vital treatment preference for the COVID-19 patients, who may require critical care. Moreover, there is an urgent need for a rapid acceleration in the manufacturing process for a wide range of test-kits (antibody tests, self-administered, and others). The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
Desiccant based dental compressors were the leading product segment in 2013 owing to its characteristic of not reacting chemically with moisture. In most of the European countries, desiccant compressors are more reliable as the weather in the region can get as high as 30 degree Celsius or as low as 0 degree Celsius. The fact that these compressors exhibit optimum performance at these temperature ranges is expected to drive market growth. Desiccant based compressors are expected to grow at a CAGR over 3.0% during the forecast period.
Key players operating in global dental compressors market include Midmark, Dürr Dental, Gnatus, Metasys, Tech West Inc., Kaeser Dental, Air Techniques, Aixin Medical Equipment Co., Ltd, Foshan Core Deep Medical Apparatus Co. Ltd., Best Dent Equipment Co., Limited, Slovadent, Dental EZ Group, Diplomat Dental Solutions, Join Champ and Fedesa. In order to sustain in highly, competitive market manufacturers are continuously developing novel technologically advanced products.

Further key findings from the study suggest:
- The oil free compressors market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 6.0% from 2014 to 2020. Key factors attributing to its fast growth includes their compact size and design enabling them to run smoothly with limited vibration and their ability to provide moisture oil and bacteria free dental air with very low maintenance cost.
- Dental compressors in handpieces accounted for over half of the market owing to rising prevalence of dental disorders, growing number of trained dental professional, rising patient awareness levels and increasing healthcare expenditure levels are few factors attributing to the growth of the dental care industry and the consequent rise in demand for dental compressors in handpieces.
- North America dominated the overall market in terms of market share in 2013 majorly on account of the presence of favorable reimbursement policies, economic development and increasing prevalence of dental disorders.
- The Asia Pacific dental compressors market is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Increasing geriatric population base, rising patient awareness levels and growing prevalence of target diseases are few factors attributing to its rapid growth.
- Key players operating in dental compressors include Midmark, Dürr Dental, Gnatus, Metasys, Tech West Inc, Kaeser Dental, Air Techniques, Aixin Medical Equipment Co., Ltd, Foshan Core Deep Medical Apparatus Co. Ltd, Best Dent Equipment Co., Limited, Slovadent, Dental EZ Group, Diplomat Dental Solutions and Fedesa.
According to the American Association of Retired Persons, by the year 2020, approximately 25% of the population base would be above 60 years of age. With the increase in natural dentition retention, more of geriatric population is seen in dental facilities to maintain their oral health. Increasing prevalence of dental disorders and the presence of amicable government reforms pertaining to the dental equipment and consumables market are expected to fuel market growth.
Lubricated and oil free compressors are two key product segments analyzed in the scope of the study. Dental lubricated compressors dominated the overall market in terms of share in 2013. Relatively low maintenance and high durability associated with these devices are some major factors attributing to its large share. In addition, high usage rates of these devices in the emerging and underdeveloped markets are expected to drive growth during the forecast period. Dental oil free compressors, on the other hand, are expected to gain revenue share during the forecast period. Oil-free compressors are light weight and less costly. Dominant market players are involved in continuous R&D in order to launch new products with efficient technology. For instance, Air Techniques has launched membrane technology based AirStar 12 and AirStar 40, that are virtually maintenance free and provides clean ultra-dry dental compressed air. Oil free dental compressors are now most widely used in the field of healthcare. Increasing demand for dental compressors with reduced noise and vibration and compact shape to save space expected to drive segment growth during the forecast period.

On the basis of technology, the dental compressors market is segmented into desiccant based compressors and membrane based compressors. Desiccant based compressors dominated the overall market in terms of share in 2013. Desiccant dryers also referred to as regenerative desiccant dryers are made up of two chambers. Compressed air goes through the chamber filled with desiccant which is responsible for adsorbing the moisture, therefore, reducing the air dew points. The desiccant dryers have captured great market share due to its capability of reducing the workload to a great extent. In addition, features such as desiccant dryers provide very low dew points without its potential freeze up and moderate cost of operation associated with these products are expected to drive segment growth over the next six years. However, membrane based compressors, on the other hand, are expected to gain revenue share during the forecast period. Membrane dryers remove moisture from the compressed air by passing it through a membrane material. Due to their sizes, membrane dryers are advantageous as they can be installed closer to the point of use.
Dental air compressors find its utility in various application areas including dental handpieces, scalers, chair valves and other dental care devices. In 2013, Dental handpieces were the most revenue generating application area accounting for the majority of the dental air compressors market. High usage rates and rising prevalence of dental disorders are amongst key factors attributing to its large share. However, dental chair valves are expected to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period. Dental chairs are one of the most important equipment in any dental care facility as it allows the dentist to continuously change position in order to get better assess to the patients mouth. Dental chairs are equipped with valves which are operated through air compressor making it maneuverable. An increasing number of dentists coupled with rising prevalence of dental disorders is amongst key factors attributing for its growth rate.
