The increasing incidences of dental diseases will drive the market growth
Increasing incidences of dental diseases are a major factor driving the market growth. For instance, as per a March 2020 update by the World Health Organization (WHO), it is estimated that oral diseases affect nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide, and severe periodontal (gum) disease, which may result in tooth loss, is also very common, with almost 10% of the global population affected. Moreover, according to the World Health Organization 2020, 2.3 billion people worldwide suffer from dental caries of permanent teeth, and more than 530 million children suffer from caries of primary teeth. Thus, the increasing incidences of dental diseases are increasing the demand for dental consumables, thereby contributing to the market growth.
Moreover, as per a December 2021 article, titled, "Dental Tourism 2021: Get Cheaper Dental Implants and Veneers Abroad" by Dentaly.org, dental implant tourism is a growing business attributed to cost savings. The same source also reports that all-on-4 implants in the United States cost more than USD 15,000 and are particularly popular for patients traveling overseas because they can be fitted much more quickly and with fewer visits than traditional implants. Thus, owing to the growing dental tourism industry, the demand for dental consumables is increasing significantly. These factors are driving the growth of the market in the forecast period.
The high costs and limited reimbursement for dental treatments will hamper the growth of the market
However, high costs and limited reimbursement for dental treatments, as well as high risks and complications associated with dental bridges and orthodontic treatments, are the factors restraining the market's growth.
The COVID-19 outbreak is an unprecedented health concern and has significantly impacted the dental consumables market growth. For instance, as per a January 2021 published article, titled "COVID-19 and dental implants: impact and perspectives", the COVID-19 pandemic made healthcare professionals, and implant dentists in particular, take extra measures to deliver exceptional care in the safest possible environment. The same source also reports that patients with symptoms of a COVID-19 infection should be prohibited from entering the implant clinic. Such factors and studies indicate that the dental industry has been hugely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a study by the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR), an overall 28% decline in the total imaging volume over a seven-week period during the COVID-19 pandemic, compared to 2019, was observed, including all patient service locations and imaging modality types. Medical professionals are still unsure of the new business model but have been dedicating most of their time and resources to meeting expectations.
The dental implants segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2029)
The dental implants segment is expected to hold a major share of the market. The major factors fueling the growth of the segment are the growing geriatric population, the increasing number of initiatives implemented by the market players, and the increasing focus on research and development of innovative dental implants. For instance, as per the United Nation’s World Ageing Highlight of 2020, 727 million people were living around the world at an age of 65 or more, and this number is expected to reach 1.5 billion by 2050, which complements the growth of the studied market, like tooth loss, is primarily a problem for the elderly.
Several companies are taking initiatives to develop new products related to dental implants. For instance, in January 2021, the CeramTec Group acquired the Swiss specialist for ceramic dental implants, Dentalpoint AG. Also in January 2021, Nobel Biocare launched the Xeal and TiUltra surfaces in the United States. The new product surfaces are applied to implants and abutments, which allows optimizing tissue integration at every level.
Furthermore, the government and other organizations are taking initiatives to increase awareness among people about age-related dental disorders. For instance, in February 2021, National Children's Dental Health Month was celebrated by the American Dental Association to increase awareness of dental health amongst children. Such initiatives are expected to fuel the demand for dental implants. Thus, these factors are driving the growth of the market in the forecast period.
North America region holds the largest market share of the global dental consumables market
North America dominates the dental consumables market and is expected to show a similar trend over the forecast period. This can be attributed to factors such as the increasing incidences of dental diseases, the growing geriatric population, and the rising adoption of cosmetic dentistry for aesthetic purposes. The United States is stated to be the largest market due to the presence of a large number of dental consumable manufacturers. According to the American College of Prosthodontists, approximately 2.3 million implant-supported crowns are made annually in the United States.
Additionally, several market players are engaged in the implementation of strategic initiatives, thereby contributing to market growth. For instance, in November 2020, Planmeca USA, a leading manufacturer of dental imaging and CAD/CAM equipment, launched two new CAD/CAM products, Planmeca PlanMill 50 S 5-axis mill and the Planmeca PlanCAD Premium design software for creating dental prosthetics. These products, together with the Planmeca Emerald S intraoral scanner, provide a new premium solution, the Planmeca FIT Plus. This complete solution allows clinicians to achieve maximum productivity throughout the entire digital dentistry workflow. Furthermore, in December 2021, Envista Holdings Corporation NVST received the approval of the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) for the Nobel Biocare N1 implant system.
