The most impactful factor limiting growth is the low purchasing power of the average Brazilian patient. Given the low amount of money that an average Brazilian patient makes, it becomes much harder to justify spending lots of money on their oral health, despite the low prices. This problem is multi-faceted, as since patients only have so much money, prices must be kept low for people to be able to afford them, which makes the overall market size small. Furthermore, labor costs have to remain low as well, which gives the workers less money to purchase the goods. As a consequence, premium products are not being purchased in high volumes, leading to value products dominating sales totals.
