Global TMJ Disorders Market size is expected to register a CAGR of 4.18% during the forecast period and is expected to hit USD 650.07 Million by 2027.
TMJ disorders are commonly known as temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders. This is a medical condition that causes dysfunction and pain in the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement. It is more common in women than men. Factors that drive the market growth are rising introduction and rapid adoption of advanced treatments, easy availability of medicines, increasing prevalence of TMJ disorders, and rise in healthcare spending worldwide.
TMJ disorders are the second-most commonly occurring musculoskeletal conditions resulting in pain and disability. The incidence of TMJ peaks from the age of 20-40 years, and it is found to be more prevalent in women than men. Moreover, women who use supplemental estrogen or oral contraceptives are more likely to seek treatment for these conditions.
Therefore, the rising prevalence of these disorders in these populations is propelling the market growth. Several research studies focused on studying the prevalence of TMJ disorders are anticipated to drive market growth. For instance, a prevalence study was conducted in 2016 among the university students of North Saudi Arabia which reported a high prevalence rate among these students. Clicking and pain were the most prevalent finding of TMD, with females having more of these symptoms.
A similar study was published in the Indian Association of Public Health Dentistry in 2016 to estimate the prevalence of TMD and its association with par functional habits among senior-secondary school children of Lucknow, India. The habits, especially digit-sucking, nail-biting, mouth breathing, and clenching, had statistically significantly associated with TMD. Such research studies are fueling the market growth of TMJ disorders.
