Based on product, the market is segmented into consumables and instruments.

The shaping & cleaning segment accounted for the largest share of the endodontic consumables market in 2016 and it is also is expected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Geographically, Europe represented the largest regional market in 2016, followed by North America. Although, Europe will continue to dominate the global endodontics market during the forecast period, the Asia Pacific (APAC) region is expected to be the fastest-growing geographic market in the coming years. Growth in this region is driven by the rising incidence of periodontal diseases, increasing disposable incomes in emerging APAC countries, growing awareness on dental hygiene, and increasing number of dental practitioners in this region.
The unfavorable reimbursement scenario for dental procedures is an important factor expected to restrain the growth of this market to a certain extent. Furthermore, the shortage of dental professionals during the forecast period presents a major challenge for the growth of the global endodontics market.
