  • The Covid-19 pandemic has made people health conscious. Consumers are taking utmost precaution to avoid any kind of infection or illness.

The increase in awareness among people regarding the cons of not practicing dental flossing is expected to increase the demand for dental floss. It is an opportunity for manufacturers to cater to the increasing excess demand in the market, which is expected to fuel the dental floss market during the forecast period.
  • The use of dental floss is high among adults as compared to children. It is essential for children as well to floss in order to prevent cavities and plaque build-up. Children really do not floss due to lack of awareness among parents about the pros of starting flossing at an early. Other reasons might be flavor and manual difficulties using regular floss. Therefore, manufacturers have an opportunity to target the kids’ market segment by introducing kid specific products in terms of different flavors and convenience.
