Dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials are considered an emerging field of medical science that aims to support growth of natural bone, repair or assist in restoring natural tooth/teeth. To reduce atrophy and increasing adoption rate for better aesthetic look, dental bone grafting is performed on the patients to restore bone to its previous form following gum disease, tooth loss, or trauma. The growth of this market is mainly driven by improving dental reforms in various nations such as U.S. and Australia, across the globe. This helps in increasing dental awareness among patient population coupled with affordability for availing dental services.
 
Natural segment market accounted for the largest share of total dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials market in 2013 and is further segmented as allografts and xenografts. Allografts market has been estimated to account for the largest share of total natural market owing to their wide acceptance among patient population and tissue compatibility post transplantation. In addition, most of the manufacturers are extensively engaged in developing and manufacturing allografts that has also contributed in gaining large market share. The market for xenografts is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR of 11.1% during the forecast period 2014 to 2020 owing to increasing preference of tissue banks to collect bone tissues from bovine animals. This is due to the fact that collecting large amount of tissue is easier in case of bovine animal than that of human. Also, shifting trend of population for accepting grafts received from animals is further expected to propel the growth of xenografts market. The global market for dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials has been estimated to grow at a CAGR of 10.6% during the forecast period 2014 to 2020. 
 
Increasing number of dental implants and aging population which is more prone to periodontal diseases would accentuate the growth of dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials market. In addition, rising incidences of oral problems will also boost the growth of dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials market. However, implementation of Affordable Care Act in the U.S. may hamper the overall growth of the market.
 
Geographically, Europe and North America collectively accounted for more than 70% of the revenue share of the total dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials market. This is majorly due to the presence of large number of key players such as Institut Straumann AG and DENSTPLY International in the region. This is due to the presence of opt-in and opts-out scenario in organ and tissue transplantation. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CARG during the forecast period owing to rising geriatric population coupled with increasing dental tourism. Ceramics segment market is expected to witness fastest CAGR in the region during the forecast period. This is due to the reason that people of Asia-Pacific are reluctant towards the acceptance of xenografts (natural) that provide the market for ceramic substantial growth over natural market. Rest of the World (RoW) accounted for the smallest share of total dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials market in 2013; however the market is expected to show substantial growth rate from 2014 to 2020. The growth in the region is primarily driven by improving healthcare infrastructure coupled with rising disposable income in Mexico and Brazil. The global dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials market is mainly dominated by DENTSPLY International, Institut Straumann AG, Zimmer Holdings, Inc., BioHorizons IPH, Inc., Biomet, Inc., DePuy Synthes, Inc. and Medtronic, Inc.
 
 

Dental Bone Graft Substitute Market: Overview

In the medical science field, the segment of dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials are regarded as an emerging field. It aims to back the growth and development of natural bone and assist or repair natural tooth/teeth so as to restore them. In a bid to reduce atrophy and soaring rate of adoption for enhanced aesthetic look, patients go for dental bone grafting is performed so as to restore bone to its earlier form after a loss of tooth, trauma, and gum disease. Thus the growth of this said market is mainly due to the improvement of reforms in the dental sector in many different nations such as Australia, the U.S. and others. This leads to augmented awareness about dental conditions amongst the patient population together with affordability for availing such dental services.

Taking vendor landscape into consideration, the market for dental bone graft substitute can be regarded as slightly fragmented and the market players has been focusing on strategically important moves like partnerships, mergers and acquisitions so as to reinforce their hold on the said market for dental bone graft substitute and other biomaterials.

Dental Bone Graft Substitute Market: Trends and Opportunities

Expanding base of geriatric population and burgeoning number of dental implants are driving the market for dental bone graft substitute. The geriatric population which is more inclined to periodontal diseases is further estimated to accentuate the market growth of dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials market. In addition to that, soaring occurrences of oral problems is also forecasted to boost the growth of world market for dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials market. However, the overall growth of the market could be hampered by the implementation of Affordable Care Act in the U.S.

Dental Bone Graft Substitute Market: Geography

Taking regional segmentations into consideration, the world market for dental bone graft substitutes is divided into Latin America, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Middle East and Africa. Of all of these, the regions of Europe and North America together held for around 70% of the total market revenue of the dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials market. This is primarily owing to the existence of numerous prominent market players like DENSTPLY International, Institut Straumann AG and many others in the region. This is primarily because of the existence of opts-out and opt-in scenario in transplantations of various organs and tissues. However, the region of Asia-Pacific is forecasted to expand at a very high CARG over the timeframe of forecast that extends from 2014 to 2020 due to increasing geriatric population together with soaring dental tourism. The ceramics segment of the market is thus expected to experience robust CAGR rate in the said region during the period of forecast. People of Asia Pacific are quite unwilling to accept natural or xenografts that offer the segment of ceramic substantial growth over the natural market. The remaining segment of Rest of the World (RoW) held for quite a small share of entirel dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials market back in the year 2013.
