Dental Prosthetic Supplies: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Global market for dental prosthetic supplies, comprising cements, temporary resins, impression materials and waxes used in manufacturing bridges, crowns and dentures, is expected to register steady growth led primarily by an aging global population. Rising demand for permanent and temporary restorations from a small yet continuously expanding edentulous population presents opportunities for growth. In addition to the people with lost/damaged teeth, growth will also be driven by patients seeking replacements for existing restorations. The market is also benefiting from advanced technologies such as CAD/CAM, which not only improve dentistry procedures but also offer patients a wider range of options. In addition, advances in materials technology such as development of high-end nanomaterials and ceramics are facilitating significant improvements in the production of dental prosthetics.

Demand for prosthetic supplies declined sharply during the recession due to reduced patient traffic and the subsequent fall in purchases of supplies from dental labs. The elective nature of dental care and lack of adequate insurance coverage for dental procedures contributed significantly to the decline in dental procedures, as patients chose to either defer treatments or opt for low-cost alternatives. The continuous rise in prices of crowns and bridges made from semi-precious and precious materials/alloys is stimulating demand for low-cost monolithic restorations that are made of solid ceramic material.

As stated by the new market research report on Dental Prosthetic Supplies, the United States represents the largest regional market worldwide. Rising instances and increasing severity of caries, tooth decay and periodontal diseases among the elderly are spurring demand for prosthetic supplies. Prosthetics such as bridges and crowns, among others, are increasingly being used as substitutes for amalgam fillings and other types of direct dental restorative procedures, which are found to be inadequate in repairing larger caries and other dental damages. Long term demand for dental prosthetic supplies is expected to stem from emerging countries of Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East. Low penetration of dental services, burgeoning middle class population, increasing consumer affluence, and greater access to and availability of dental services, are factors expected to drive growth in these regions.

Major players covered in the report include 3M ESPE AG, Coltène/Whaledent AG, DenMat Holdings LLC, DENTSPLY International Inc., DMG GmbH, GC Corporation, Heraeus Kulzer GmbH, Institut Straumann AG, Ivoclar Vivadent AG, Kuraray Noritake Dental Inc., Nobel Biocare Holding AG, Shofu Inc., Sybron Dental Specialties, and VOCO GmbH, among others.
