Dental Restorative Materials Market | Covid-19 Impact Analysis
Dental Restorative Materials Market is Segmented by Material Type (Amalgam, Glass Ionomer, Composite, and Others), by Defect Class Type (Class I, Class II, Class III, Class IV, Class V, and Class VI), by Restoration Type (Direct, Indirect), by End-User Type (Hospital, Dental Clinic, and Laboratory), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World).
Dental restorative materials are used in the treatment of the integrity, function, and morphology of missing tooth structure. Tooth structure can be damaged from caries or external trauma. The materials used in dental restoration include composites, glass ionomer, amalgam, porcelain, gold, etc. However, amalgam is phasing out from the market because of its harmful mercury content coupled with the inability to match with the tooth color.
The outbreak of Covid-19 has shaken the global economy and has disrupted the entire supply chain of the dental industry across regions. The dental restorative materials market too was hit hard by the pandemic and is anticipated to mark a huge plunge in its sales in 2020, reaching below the 2014 level. However, the long-term outlook of the dental restorative materials market still seems positive and is expected to pace up from 2021 with an expected recovery in the patient's footfall.
The factors which will boost the demand in the long term are:
Rising awareness regarding oral care in developing economies will also augment the market growth. Telehealth and Teledentistry will offer a pragmatic approach in providing optimal dental care to patients. As a result, the dental restorative materials market is estimated to offer significant growth opportunities in the long-term scenario and is projected to reach US$ 1,450.5 million in 2025.
The dental restorative materials market has gradually been consolidating with a good number of M&As recorded over the past five years.
Based on the material type, the market is segmented as amalgam, glass ionomer, composites, and others. Composite is expected to remain the most dominant as well as the fastest-growing material type in the market over the next five years. The huge dominance is attributed to the superior esthetics offered by composite restorative materials coupled with the property to chemically bond with the tooth. Glass ionomer also holds a significant share of the market and is slowly gaining traction, owing to the property of releasing fluoride ions to prevent tooth decay in the future.
The market is also segmented on the basis of restoration type. The direct segment is expected to maintain its lead in the market over the next five years, owing to its efficiency coupled with high preference among dentists across the globe. Indirect dental restorations are only necessary for patients when there is extensive tooth damage. Indirect dental restorations involve applying artificial dental substitutes, usually made from porcelain in a laboratory.
The dental restorative materials market is also segmented based on the end-user type into dental hospital, dental clinic, and laboratory. Dental clinic is expected to remain the largest segment of the market over the next five years, propelled by a growing number of dentists coupled with specialized attention provided to patients at dental clinics. Hospitals also have a significant share of the market.
In terms of region, Eur?ope is projected to remain the largest market for dental restorative materials during the forecast period. The high share is attributed to high dental expenditure, awareness regarding oral care, presence of skilled dentists, and high adoption of advanced medical technologies. The presence of a large number of hospitals and dental clinics further contributes to the region’s larger share.
Despite enduring a severe blow in 2020, Asia-Pacific is likely to remain the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. Significant economic development in the region, growing awareness about oral care, and increasing disposable income of consumers are the major factors propelling the growth of the region’s market.
