“As income levels rise in China, more people will be able to afford dental care and, thus, will boost demand for professional dental products,” said Paul Tucker, CEO, Suni. “Rising professional income levels and a larger aging population provide a huge growth opportunity for Suni as it enters the Chinese market.”

China ranks as the 11th largest market for medical devices and equipment with more than $16 billion in sales at the end of 2011. Dental practitioners will require more and more sophisticated tools to diagnose and treat the Chinese population where there is one dentist to every 26,000 patients.

“In 2012, the dental equipment market in China is estimated to reach $321 million, and consumables will reach $962 million equating to an overall value of more than $1.2 billion,” said Arya Azimi, marketing manager at Suni.

“As one of the few companies officially approved to market its dental sensors in China, Suni is poised to bring its constantly innovative dental technology to this new and expanding market.”

Suni is opening its distribution channel and is seeking distributors within China to assist in the distribution effort. For more information contact the international sales team at [email protected].
