On line distribution segment to register highest growth during the forecast period
On the basis of distribution channel, the global oral care market is segmented into consumer stores, retail pharmacies, online distribution, and dental dispensaries.
Consumer or retail stores held the largest share of the global oral care market in 2016. This segment includes retail stores and supermarkets. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the high dependence of manufacturers on retail stores as they are the immediate customers; a large number of consumer stores and their easy accessibility are driving the market growth in this segment.
Retail pharmacies mainly distribute prescription-based dental products, such as dental ointments and pastes, gels, oral or topical sprays, mouthwashes/rinses, and medication. They cater to a wide customer base; however, to save inventory maintenance cost and shelf space, drug stores mainly stock frequently prescribed oral care products.
The online distribution segment is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The significant growth in the e-commerce sectors owing to the increasing number of internet users is a key growth driver for this segment. According to the Information Office under the State Council of China, the number of internet users in China reached 384 million in 2014; online purchasers accounted for about 26% of all internet users.
