In this report, you’ll find an AI-based analysis of all things electric toothbrushes. Let’s take a look at some of the top insights from this oral care competition analysis.

The Current Oral Care Industry

Oral care’s market share has already exceeded expectations. Analysts estimate that the industry will grow by about $9 billion from 2020 to 2027.

The market share for toothbrushes alone will grow by about $2 billion during this same period.

This research further shows that this quick expansion is caused by multiple factors. As noted above, the rise of dental diseases is one contributing element.

Additionally, more people around the world are being educated on how important dental hygiene is. Dental brands and industry groups have ramped up education campaigns in recent years.

The top-selling oral care product is toothpaste. But electric toothbrushes are also seeing a rapid market expansion.

Technological advancements in electric toothbrush technology may be behind this trend. Increases in disposable income are also an important factor.

What Customers Are Looking For?

If your company is planning to expand in oral care, then you know how important it is to follow the voice of the customer.

The Wonderflow report looked at about 350,000 ratings to conduct an extensive review analysis. The analysis examined 23 countries across 5 languages.
