Oral hygiene is keeping the mouth clean and free of diseases. It can be maintained by regular brushing and flossing. Improper diet and cleaning ignorance result in buildup of bacterial colonies leading to dental decays, bad breath, and sore gums. According to the World Health Organization, tooth decay is the most common dental disease affecting about 60% to 90% children and 100% adults globally. Demand for oral care products is high owing to usage on a daily basis by the large global population. Increase in consumer awareness about oral care, government initiatives in the form of advertising campaigns, local camps at public as well as private hospitals, schools, and colleges to promote the oral health, increase in advertisements on television, newspapers, YouTube, etc. by key players, and attractive offers by shopping marts are the factors driving the global oral care products market. Moreover, prevalence of oral diseases such as gingivitis, pyorrhea, dry mouth, periodontal diseases, and oral problems caused by long term use of some medication, and canker sores boost the growth of the global adult oral care products market. However, lack of awareness about newly developed oral care products in many regions of the world, high cost of electronic toothbrushes, preference for ayurvedic and natural product containing brands in some regions, and marketing against fluoride-containing pastes by some players restrain the global adult oral products care market.
