Electric Toothbrush Market by Bristle (Soft Bristles and Nanometer Bristles), Head Movement (Sonic/Side-to-side and Rotation/Oscillation), End User (Adult and Children) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023

Electric toothbrush is a battery operated oral hygiene instrument, which works on the principle of rotation and oscillation for cleaning teeth, gums, and tongue. It is equipped with an electric motor attached to the handle, which produces rapid automatic bristle motions, either back-and-forth oscillation or clockwise–anticlockwise rotation for inducing vibrations in the brush head to facilitate cleaning. Electric toothbrush has replaceable nylon bristles, which are considered to be more efficient in oral hygiene than the manual counterparts. These toothbrushes are mainly used by people suffering from arthritis, with dexterity problem, or wearing orthodontic braces. Automatic motions and a plethora of features, such as special modes for sensitive teeth, gum massage, and whitening have increased their popularity among the masses.

The global electric toothbrush market is driven by growing preference for technologically advanced products. Moreover, electric toothbrushes are recommended by dentists across the world, as these help in preventing dental problems like tartar, gingivitis, and plaque formation in oral cavity. In addition, majority of manual brushes are not recyclable, which could hamper the environment. On the other hand, as most of the replacement toothbrush heads can be recycled, they are sustainable in nature. The adoption of these toothbrushes is affected by their high cost and conveyance issue. The average cost of an electric toothbrush ranges between $15 and $100, which is detrimental to its widespread use. Extra care need to be taken while cleaning the electric toothbrush after use. For instance, in some cases, the base of electric toothbrush is not waterproof the brush head needs to be removed before cleaning, which is a cumbersome task. Sensitivity is another major factor that hinders the adoption of electric toothbrush due to the heightened risk of damaging the gums. Furthermore, the cost of replacing the brush heads after every 3 months and the need to replace the batteries of battery-operated counterparts hamper their adoption among the masses. Growing consciousness about oral hygiene among young generation and technological advancements such as connecting camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and others with toothbrush are expected to propel the growth of the electric toothbrush market in the coming years.
