Geriatrics Driving Demand in Global Dental Implants Market

The demand in the global dental implants market is anticipated to increment at a healthy CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025, according to a recent study by Transparency Market Research (TMR). The study attributes a number of factors for the prosperity of the dental implants market, such as rapid growth in the global edentulism, increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry, rising incidence of dental caries and other periodontal, increasing disposable income in the emerging economies, introduction of novel implants, and escalating percentage of geriatrics in the global population.

On the other hand, factors such as high cost of dental implant procedure, limited reimbursement policies, and the lack of skilled dental practitioners are some of the restraints hindering the progress of the global dental implants market. Nevertheless, the vendors operating in the global dental implants market are expected to gain new opportunities if they restructure their business according to new trends such as mergers and acquisitions, medical tourism, and marketing via social media, whose penetration is growing by the day.

The TMR report has estimated that the global dental implants market will be worth US$6.54 bn by the end of 2025, considerably up from its evaluated valuation of US$3.60 bn in 2016.

Which segments are showing most promise for the future?

Based on product, the global dental implants market is segmented into endosteal implants, intramucosal implants, subperiosteal implants, and transosteal implants. In 2016, endosteal implants served more than 80% of the demand, and the segment is expected to remain highly profitable throughout the forecast period. However, subperiosteal implants are projected by the TMR report for a robust 9.5% CAGR during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025. 

Titanium and zirconium implants are two material categories of dental implants market, with titanium dominating the demand in 2016. Based on end-users, hospitals continue to account for the maximum demand, although personalized dental clinics are also gaining popularity. 

Which region is showing maximum growth prospects?

Currently, Europe and North America are the two most lucrative regions in the global dental implants market, both dominating due to robust healthcare infrastructure, rising geriatric population, and high adoptability of new technology. Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is a region with growing potential, as it houses nearly the half of the world’s population, including two of the fastest emerging economies in India and China.

How stiff is the competition among the leading vendors?

As per the findings of the TMR report, the global dental implants market is quite consolidated in nature, distributed among some of the key vendors such as AVINENT Implant System S.L., Zimmer Biomet Holdings Inc., Dentsply Sirona Inc., Ivoclar Vivadent AG, Straumann Holding AG, Henry Schein Inc., Danaher Corporation, and 3M Health Care. Aggressive pricing, product innovation, and mergers and acquisitions are some of the key strategies adopted by these leading vendors to gain ground over their competitors.
