Global Dental Consumables Market

The Dental Consumables Market is expected to grow at a rate of ~6% to reach ~25 billion by 2026.

Dental consumables are products that dental professionals or dentists use on patients to treat and/or perform procedures associated with preventive, restorative, diagnostic, and emergency oral health issues. Dental implants, crowns, bridges, dental biomaterial, orthodontics, endodontics, and periodontics are the main components of dental consumables.

The global dental consumables market is primarily driven by factors such as the increasing geriatric population, the rising demand for cosmetic dentistry, the growth of dental tourism in countries, and the rising awareness of the value of oral health.

The Advent of CAD/CAM Technology in Cosmetic Dentistry Drives the Dental Consumables Market

A relatively new technology called dental CAD/CAM can improve the patient experience during dental treatment. Software used in CAD/CAM dentistry enables dentists to do complex restorations more quickly, effectively, and sometimes even more accurately. Both dental practices and laboratories use CAD/CAM technology to construct restorations like crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers, bridges, dentures, and implant-supported restorations from high-strength ceramic.

The widespread use of dental consumables in the treatment of dental impairments, gingival tissue difficulties, and tooth restoration is anticipated to further boost market growth.

For Instance,

  • In December 2021, Dentsply Sirona entered into a partnership with 3Shape, to enhance the technique of capturing dental impressions by integrating 3Shape’s software
  • In February 2021, Align Technology, Inc. announced the launch of the iTero Element® Plus Series, intending to expand the company’s portfolio of iTero Element scanners and imaging systems to include new solutions that serve a broader range of the dental market

Growing Opportunities in Dental Tourism Fuels the Dental Consumables Market

Dental tourism has risen in popularity alongside the medical tourism industry as more patients travel overseas for dental treatment. The high cost of dental care services, lack of insurance coverage, and dissatisfaction with available services in home countries have motivated people to seek affordable, speedy, and better quality dental care in foreign countries. The dental tourism market has seen exponential growth in recent years, with countries like Turkey, Mexico, Hungary, Poland, and India emerging as destinations.

“The rapid development of digital dentistry technologies over the past several decades has enabled clinicians to improve patient care by significantly reducing the time necessary for the restorative phase of treatment. Advancements in intra-oral scanning and computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) will further boost the market in the coming years.” – President, Dental Consumables Company, United States
