The global toothpaste market size stood at USD 18.70 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 19.37 billion in 2024 to USD 29.06 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.20% during the forecast period. Asia Pacific dominated the toothpaste market with a market share of 36.52% in 2023.

The demand for high-quality oral health products is increasing rapidly as people are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of maintaining good dental health. Toothpaste safeguards the teeth and gum areas from germs & bacteria, preventing the development of cavities and enhancing the overall teeth health. The increasing prevalence of oral cancer, periodontal diseases, and other mouth-related conditions will fuel the product’s demand. As per the World Health Organization (WHO)’s global oral health status report in 2022, nearly 3.5 billion people (3 out of 4) suffer from oral diseases globally.

Nevertheless, the toothpaste market experienced disruptions in the supply chain due to factory closures, transportation delays, and logistical challenges caused by the pandemic. Manufacturers faced difficulties in sourcing raw materials, packaging components, and distribution channels, which impacted production volumes and availability of toothpaste products. However, the pandemic also heightened interest in health and wellness trends, including natural and sustainable products. Consumers sought toothpaste formulations with natural ingredients, fluoride-free options, and eco-friendly packaging, reflecting a growing preference for products that align with their health and environmental values. For instance, in 2021, the U.K.’s NHS invested nearly USD 68.74 million to help the country’s dental care products industry reach its pre-pandemic level.

Toothpaste Market Trends

Shift toward Vegan and Anti-Cavity Pastes to Surge Product Demand

Consumers are increasing their preference for herbal, medicated, and cruelty-free pastes to enhance their oral hygiene and contribute to animal welfare. Oral hygiene brands, such as Hello, Dr. Brite, Schmidt’s, Marvis, and others are focusing on producing products specifically targeting the growing vegetarian and vegan populations. For instance, in 2020, Arata started offering a vegan tooth paste product, which is a combination of peppermint, chamomile, and extracts of cinnamon, ensuring fresh, strong, and healthy teeth and gums. In addition, brands are focusing on manufacturing teeth care solutions that prevent cavities and tartar, thereby boosting their sales. For example, in March 2023, Colgate-Palmolive Company developed smart foaming technology-based Colgate Total Plaque Pro Release mouth cleaning product in the U.S. The product is highly efficient in cleansing bacteria’s from the hard-to-reach mouth surfaces and help in treating oral cavity issues. Besides, the increasing popularity of smoker dental pastes among the smoking population to help them quit their smoking habit will favor the market growth.

Toothpaste Market Growth Factors

Dental Issues in Children and Elderly to Aid Market Growth

The rising number of children experiencing dental issues and parents increasing their spending on their child’s dental caries are accelerating the product demand globally. According to data published by the American Dental Association (ADA), in 2021, the total dental expenditure by Americans reached USD 162 billion, 11% up over the previous year. Furthermore, an increasing number of older adults preferring sensitive and herbal dental health pastes to treat their gum redness and tooth decaying problems is driving the global market growth. According to data published by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the number of people aged 65 years and above in Thailand reached 9.9 million, which was 13.8% of the total population in 2020.

Increasing Investments in Marketing and Advertising Campaigns to Fuel Market Growth

Marketing and advertising campaigns help increase brand awareness among consumers. Therefore, by promoting toothpaste brands through various channels, such as television, radio, print media, social media, and online platforms, companies can reach a wider audience and ensure that their products are considered by consumers when making purchasing decisions. Hence, the progressive investments made in marketing and advertising activities by leading brands, such as Colgate, Oral-B, and others in the market will likely drive the product demand globally. For instance, Colgate & Palmolive Co.’s investments in advertisements increased from USD 489 million in 2021 to USD 504 million in 2022. Additionally, companies’ preference for launching advertising campaigns to build their brand is expected to support the product’s consumption rate. For instance, in May 2023, Dabur Ltd., an India-based global consumer goods company, launched an ad film featuring the Dabur Herb’l Charcoal Toothpaste campaign on social media sites in India.


High Cost of Chemicals Used in Product to Hamper Market Growth

In a competitive market environment, toothpaste manufacturers may face pressure to keep prices competitive with rival brands. However, the high cost of chemicals used in production can constrain manufacturers' ability to offer competitive pricing, potentially putting them at a disadvantage compared to lower-cost alternatives. This may limit market share and growth opportunities for manufacturers facing pricing constraints. Moreover, oral health pastes available in the market comprise various chemicals, such as calcium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, tricalcium phosphate, and many others. The increasing prices of these chemicals are pushing manufacturers to sell products at higher prices, negatively impacting the product demand. In addition, higher R&D costs associated with producing innovative formulations for oral care products may limit the profitability of key market players.
