Posted by Ryan Shaw on March 22nd, 2021

The global Sports Mouthguard Market size is expected to reach USD 7.3 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 11.7% from 2021 to 2027. The high prevalence of sports-related dental injuries and the increasing emphasis on the use of mouthguards by dental professionals are anticipated to facilitate market growth over the forecast period. For instance, nearly 71.0% of the dentists recommend mouthguards to their patients who are active in sports. In addition, easy access to the products and availability of a wide range of products are also expected to contribute to market growth.

According to an article by Procter and Gamble, over 5.0 million teeth are detached or loosened each year and a substantial amount of them are a result of sports activity. Furthermore, as per the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA), dental injuries caused due to sports range between 13%-39% of all dental injuries, and about 2%-18% of them are maxillofacial. Thus, the high number of dental injuries during games and the ability of the dental device to reduce dental injuries is anticipated to increase its adoption by the consumers.

The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) mandates the use of the mouthguard for five sports namely -Ice hockey, football, field hockey, lacrosse, and wrestling. However, the dental device is also being recommended by several sports and dental associations, such as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine UK, to be worn during games such as rugby, hockey, basketball, volleyball, football along with recreational activities such as bicycling, sky diving, gymnastics, and others. These recommendations are anticipated to fuel market growth.
