  • 24 Sep 2019

Global Dental Biomaterials Market is estimated to value over USD 10 billion by 2026 end and register a CAGR of over 6.4% during the forecast period 2019 to 2026


The rising number of skilled dental professionals is anticipated to increase dental care access. As per a recent statistical survey of the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (BIGS), Brazil has over 170,000 dentists, which is over 11% of the total number of dentists worldwide. After the initiation of the Oral Health National Policy in Brazil, the population in Brazil has been aware of the expenditure on dental care and oral health has increased significantly. Therefore, the rising edentulous population is projected to steer the global dental biomaterials market growth.


The market is fragmented into dental hospitals and clinics, dental laboratories, dental implant and prosthetic manufacturers, and dental academies and research institutes. The dental implant and prosthetic manufacturers segment held the largest dental biomaterials market share in 2018. The large market share can be attributed to the growing penetration of prosthetics and dental implants, increasing adoption of CAD/CAM systems in laboratories and dental clinics, rising awareness on oral diseases and rising number of dental practices.


Based on the applications, the market is bifurcated into orthodontics, prosthodontics, implantology, and other applications. The implantology segment held the largest market share in 2018. The large share of this segment can be credited to the rising dental implants penetration worldwide, high volume and price requirements of titanium that is used for dental implant manufacturing, growing demand for cosmetic dentistry, increasing incidence of oral diseases, soaring disposable incomes in developing countries and rising dental tourism in developing regions.


Geographically, the global dental biomaterials market has been categorised into Europe, North America, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa and the Asia Pacific. The European region held the major share of the market in 2017, due to the prevalence of established key players offering substitutes to dental bone graft and higher dental implant penetration in the region. The North American region is predicted to a significant market share over the forecast period due to a rise in the geriatric population suffering from dental diseases in the region. AS per the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP), over 15 million people in the United States are partial edentulous and over 20 million are completely edentulous. These are the factors that are forecasted to drive the market in North America. 


Asia Pacific Region has Untapped Market Potential  

The Asia Pacific region is probably expanding at a substantial CAGR over the forecast period. This rise can be attributed to a rise in demand for aesthetics leading to higher adoption of dental implants and an increase in the geriatric population with missing teeth in emerging nations are expected to expand the dental biomaterials market size in the region. As per the Indian Dental Association (IDA), approximately 30% of adults over the age of 64 years in India are edentulous, when compared to over 45% 20 years ago. These factors are predicted to steer the market growth in the region in the upcoming years.


Key market players included in the global dental biomaterials industry are Straumann Holding AG, Geistlich Pharma AG, Zimmer Biomet Holdings Inc., Danaher Corp., Dentsply Sirona Inc., 3M Company, Royal DSM, Carpenter Technology Corp., Kuraray CO.Ltd., Medtronic Ltd., Henry Schein Inc., Mitsui Chemicals Inc., Victrex PLC, Ivoclar Vivadent AG, GC Corp., Keystone Dental Ltd.
