The competition within the global dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials market continues to be intense due to the constant rivalry between DENTSPLY International, Zimmer Holdings Inc., and Institut Straumann AG, finds a report by Transparency Market Research (TMR). These three companies collectively accounted for a share of nearly 60% of the overall market in 2013.
To sustain in this competitive environment, leading players are opting for long-term sales contracts with end users to attain more visibility and enhance their market presence. New entrants, on the other hand, will need to collaborate with established players in order to gain a foothold in this market. As per TMR’s report, the global market for dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials is expected to present an opportunity worth US$884.3 mn by 2020. The market stood at US$456.1 mn in 2013 and is estimated rise at a healthy CAGR of 10.60% during the period from 2014 to 2020.
Introduction of Treatment Packages to Ease Financial Burden associated with Dental Care
A number of dental reforms have been initiated by various government across the world. They are also introducing treatment packages in order to ease out the financial burden on the general public when it comes to maintaining their dental health.
In 2012, the U.S. introduced The Comprehensive Dental Reform Act - 2012, which has increased reimbursement options, created new access points, and is providing capital support to new research in the field of dental consumables. Similarly, the government of Australia has recently announced to introduce a dental reform package of US$4.1 bn. Germany also boasts of a healthcare system where nearly 88% of its overall population enjoy statutory health insurance, known as sickness funds. Under this insurance policy, the government provides free basic dental services along with several other advanced options such as orthodontics, and crowns and bridges.
With these dental reforms and treatment packages, the access to expensive dental treatments has improved, which is likely to drive the demand for dental bone grafts substitutes and other biomaterials across the world.
Strict Government Regulations and Lack of Favorable Reimbursement Environment to Hamper Demand
“While the implementation of these reforms is presenting potential growth opportunities for the dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials market, strict government regulations for medical devices in several nations is creating obstructions in its progression,” says the lead analyst at TMR.
The lack of a favorable reimbursement environment in a number of economies is also limiting the demand for dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials, which is expected to impact the market severely in the coming years.
Europe to Continue Leading Demand for Dental Bone Graft Substitutes and other Biomaterials
Europe led the global market in 2013 with a share of more than 40%. The region is expected to remain dominant through the forecast period, despite a reduction in its share in the global market. Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is likely to witness significant growth in the demand for dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials, registering a CAGR of 11.70% over the forecast period.
Natural dental bone graft substitutes and biomaterials will continue to lead the demand in the market over the next few years, states the report.
