Global Dental Consumables Market Proliferating with Increasing Awareness about Dental Hygiene

Published On : Apr 05, 2015 | Category : Healthcare

The surge in dental tourism in emerging countries such as India, Turkey, and Hungary due to the availability of high-quality services at low costs has led to the increased demand for dental consumables in these nations. For instance, in India, the dental healthcare sector is largely driven by private practitioners with minimal government intervention for quality control or cost parameters for services rendered. In developed countries such as the U.S., the U.K., Australia, and Germany, growth of the dental consumables market is largely stimulated by the introduction of government-laid dental reforms such as The Comprehensive Dental Reform Act of 2012. Besides this, the increasing aging population and increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry are driving the dental consumables market in these nations.

Due to these factors, the global dental consumables market will reach a valuation of US$27.6 bn by 2023, increasing from US$16.5 bn in 2014 at a CAGR of 5.7% for the 2015-2023 period.

Crown and Bridges Products Dominate Dental Consumables Market

The global dental consumables market is divided on the basis of product and geography. Dental implants, dental biomaterials, orthodontics, periodontics, dental crown and bridges, and endodontics are the product segments of this market. Of all, the crown and bridges segment is expected to display the fastest growth in the coming years. In the crown and bridges segment, currently, ceramic fused to metal contributes a significant revenue share to the overall market; however, pure ceramic is expected to surpass the ceramic fused to metal sub-segment by 2023.

Dental implants are the second largest segment of this market and are expected to be a prominent product segment of the dental consumables market in the future as well. This is because dental implants are used in place of missing teeth, chipped teeth, etc. caused by accidents, injuries, and diseases. Titanium and zirconium are mostly used in the fabrication of dental implants. In the short utilization history of dental implants, titanium has emerged to be the material of choice, as it can function at par with natural teeth, provided it is installed correctly. 

Widespread Root Canal Procedures Lead to Demand for Endodontic Products

Dental biomaterials are used for tissue regeneration and dental bone graft and membranes to recover damaged and fractured teeth. The orthodontics segment, which comprises anchorage appliances, brackets and archwire, and ligatures, will register the second highest growth rate in this market in the 2015-2023 period. Amongst the subcategories of orthodontics products, brackets that are made of materials such as ceramics and stainless steel are attached to a tooth using an archwire and display a significant growth rate in this market.

Endodontic products involve the diagnosis and treatment of impairments related to dental pulp and tooth root and surrounding tissues carried out using endodontic files, endodontic sealers, and obturation products. Endodontic products are extensively used in root canal treatment, which is one of the most common dental procedures carried out worldwide. The periodontics segment of the market includes power-driven scaling devices, locally applied therapeutic products, dental sutures, dental anesthetics, and dental hemostats. 

In terms of geography, Europe is the largest market for dental consumables. This region is followed by North America, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. In North America, as per the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, 69% of adults between 35 and 44 years of age have at least one incidence of losing one permanent tooth due to an accident, tooth decay, or gum disease.
