The global Gutta-Percha Market size is expected to reach USD 268.82 million by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.77% from 2021 to 2027. Gutta-percha is a trans-isomer of polyisoprene and the molecular structure of the material is close to that of natural rubber that crystallizes, leading to a rigid form. Physical properties of GP like high tensile strength, biocompatibility, bioinertness, and radiopacity have made gutta-percha a very effective material for root canal obturation and endodontic surgery wherein this thermoplastic filling material is heated and suffused into the dentin canal, then sealed with adhesive cement.

Factors like the rising prevalence of dental caries, increasing awareness about oral hygiene, and the rising geriatric population and their escalating need for preventive and surgical dental services are boosting the market growth.

According to the American Dental Association, 85% of individuals in the U.S. truly deem good dental health as an essential aspect of overall care. As gutta-percha is deemed to be a safe-to-use filling due to its better adaptation to root canal complexities, the market is expected to witness significant growth in the forecast period.
