The nation’s most authoritative assessment of the dental products market is the Australian Dental Industry Intelligence Report published by the Australian Dental Industry Association(ADIA).

To provide a context as to what drives growth in the sector, the Australian Dental Industry Intelligence Reportanalyses a range of external factors including changes to the nation’s expenditure on dental and oral healthcare, a key driver of sales of products to dental practices.

■ Anaesthesia product sales
■ Consumable sales
■ Infection control product sales

Australian Dental Industry Intelligence Report – FY2016-17*

Deloitte Access Economics prepared the Australian Dental Industry Intelligence Report using a combination of top-down and bottom-up approaches, and were then summed together to provide an aggregated estimate of the Australian dental industry. Annual historical values for each of the fourteen categories were estimated for the period FY2007-08 to FY2016-17. Growth rates are presented in both nominal and real terms by adjusting for dental consumer price index (CPI) inflation estimated by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

Production of the Australian Dental Industry Intelligence Report is a major investment by ADIA and an outcome of the 2016-20 ADIA Strategic Plan which has a commitment to help member businesses understand and benefit from changes to the environment in which dental products are manufactured and supplied.
