The global dental implants market was pegged at US$ 3.8 billion in 2021 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period.
Teeth are strong but not indestructible. Teeth may get damaged by clinical diseases, accidents, hard food bites, pressure from grinding, and sudden changes in food temperature i.e., eating something hot and drinking something cold, which further may lead to loss of teeth. In such cases, the replacement of teeth may be required. Dental implantation is one of the methods for tooth replacement. Dental implant surgery involves replacing tooth roots with metal, screw-like posts, and replacing missing or damaged teeth with artificial teeth that closely resemble real teeth in appearance and function. Dental Implants are mainly made from titanium and zirconium. Various factors are taken into consideration before the surgery such as the condition of the jawbone, the type of implant, the number of implants needed, and the need for some prior procedures to support dental implant surgery i.e., grinding of other teeth. The dental implant procedure is time-consuming and depending on the condition it may take 2 to 4 months for the procedure. According to the Journal of American Dental Association in 2020, 1 out of 3 adults over 65 years have lost 6 or more teeth, and about 1 out of 10 adults over 65 years lost all their teeth.
The global dental implants market revenue growth is mainly driven by the rising prevalence of oral diseases such as tooth decay, gum diseases, etc., the increasing geriatric population, and negligence in oral hygiene. Additionally, technological advancement and the introduction of novel implant technologies such as digital implant planning, antibacterial coating, and computer-guided implant surgery are further contributing to the global dental implants market revenue growth. However, the high cost of implants, complicated surgery procedures, and lack of awareness about dental hygiene in developing and underdeveloped countries are expected to hamper the market revenue growth to a certain extent. Furthermore, post-surgical complications such as infections, gum recession, and nerve & tissue damage; injury or damage to surrounding structures, such as other teeth or blood vessels, and lack of reimbursement policy, are also expected to limit the adoption of dental implants thereby restraining the revenue growth of the market.
The global dental implants market has been analyzed from five perspectives: type, material, design, end user, and region.
Dental Implants Market by Type
Based on type, the global dental implants market has been segmented into subperiosteal implants, endosteal implants, and transosteal implants. Endosteal implants are the most commonly used implants and hold the largest revenue share in the market. Endosteal implants are fused straight onto the jawbone, providing an alternative to permanent dentures or bridges. These are primarily used to hold dentures in place for patients with insufficient bone height. The revenue growth of the segment can be attributed to its benefits like its natural appearance, long-lasting use, and high bite strength. Additionally, technological advancements in dental implant surgery, the introduction of novel implants, and digital implant planning will fuel the global dental implants market revenue growth. For instance, in January 2021, Novel Biocare launched next-generation surface chemistry-designed soft Xeal™ and TiUltra™ surface implants in the United States. These new surfaces are applied to implants and abutments, which optimizes tissue integration at every level.
Dental Implants Market by Material
Based on material, the global dental implants market has been segmented into titanium, zirconium dioxide, and others. The titanium segment is leading the global dental implants market owing to its high success rate, durability, high compatibility with the jawbone & gum tissue, reduced risk of pain, and stability. Additionally, its natural finishing, high corrosion resistance, low cost compared to other implants, and the non-allergic nature of titanium is also contributing to the revenue growth of the segment in the market.
Dental Implants Market by Design
Based on the design, the global dental implants market has been segmented into tapered implants and parallel-walled implants. Tapered dental implants dominated the market with the largest share. The shape of tapered implants is the closest to that of natural tooth roots, which contributes to greater stability and better overall aesthetics in the finished dental implant. Tapered dental implants provide outstanding primary stability, optimal bone preservation, and excellent soft tissue attachment. Furthermore, less cost of tapered implants as compared with parallel implants, and the large number of prominent players offering the product is also expected to boost the revenue growth of the tapered dental implant market.
Dental Implants Market by End User
Based on end users, the market has been segmented into hospitals, dental clinics, and academic & research institutes. The dental clinic segment dominates the global dental implants market. The revenue growth of the segment can be attributed to the visits of patients to dental clinics for the diagnosis and treatment of various dental diseases. Additionally, technological advancements such as the X-Guide 3D navigation system and CAD cam technology for oral dental scans are also supporting the market revenue growth rate.
Dental Implants Market by Region
Based on region, the global dental implants market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. North America dominates the dental implants market, followed by the Asia Pacific. The large revenue share of North America in the global dental implants market can be attributed to the early approval of dental implant products, increasing oral diseases, the rising geriatric population, and negligence in oral hygiene. Furthermore, developed infrastructure, increasing healthcare expenditure, adoption of the latest technology, and high disposable income are contributing to the revenue growth of the North American dental implants market.
