The Dental Floss Market is characterized by a few well-established firms and also several small and medium-sized businesses. P&G, J&J, and Colgate are the market leaders in this category. Companies such as Tom's of Maine, Inc. are providing dental floss made from three natural waxes, jojoba, carnauba, and beeswax, with no added preservatives, sweeteners, or color, with the waxed floss market already having a large share of revenue in 2021 and the expected growth of the dental loss market. They are broadening their product line and making things more environmentally friendly. Dental Floss Market penetration is likely to expand as a result of these factors. 'Johnson & Johnson', 'Procter & Gamble', 'Colgate-Palmolive Company', 'Unilever', 'Dr. Fresh LLC', 'Lion Corporation', 'Sunstar Suisse S.A.', 'Water Pik, Inc.', 'Church & Dwight Co., Inc.', 'Dentek Oral Care, Inc.', 'Tom's of Maine', 'The Humble Co.', 'Oral-B', 'GUM', 'Reach', 'DenTek', 'Glide', 'SuperFloss', 'Curaprox', 'TePe.'

The increase in the frequency of oral issues and the rising demand for oral care products are the major factors driving the market's growth. According to the Platform for Better Oral Health in Europe, more than half of the European population had periodontitis in 2018, and over 10% of the population had serious dental illnesses, with the prevalence of periodontitis rising to 70-85% among people aged 60-65 years.

The growth of waxed dental floss is a prominent key trend, owing to rising oral health concerns. Increased dental problems such as cavities, poor breath, and gum inflammation are predicted to drive demand for interdental cleaning items such as dental floss. Interdental brushes, tapes, floss, and other products are used to remove plaque and clean the interdental area.

In the year 2021, North America has dominated the dental floss market and is rapidly expanding, primarily as a result of increased public awareness of oral hygiene and the rising frequency of oral illnesses. According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 90% of adults in the United States have cavity problems, with one out of every four having untreated cavities. Cavities are preventable, but they are the most common chronic health problem in the region. Furthermore, 50% of all adults aged 30 and up in the United States have signs of gum disease. The rising prevalence of dental problems and increased awareness about oral health are expected to contribute to regional growth. Further, the Asia Pacific region is expected to grow due to an aging population and increased awareness of dental health and preventive care. Consumers in the region are more focused on oral hygiene and invest in new technologies for improved dental care as a result of awareness campaigns.
