Between 2021 and 2022, Italy’s dental exports to the UAE rose from a market share of 4.64% to 6.02%, underscoring the positive trade relationship between both countries.

Lorenzo Fanara, Ambassador of Italy to the UAE, said: “Italy has positioned itself as a leader in the dental and orthodontics sector, driven by its dedication to groundbreaking innovation and state-of-the-art solutions. This has translated into an average annual growth rate of 6% and a remarkable overall export development of 80% from 2011 to 2022. The sector’s global exports have witnessed a significant surge, surpassing 60% for the first time in 2022. The UAE remains a pivotal export destination, and we look forward to further strengthening and cultivating this crucial relationship at AEEDC 2024.”
