The global dental inlays and onlays market size was valued at USD 3.0 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.0% from 2022 to 2030. The market is majorly driven by the rise in advancements in the field of restorative dental care. Moreover, an increase in consumer awareness regarding dental inlays and onlays procedures is boosting the growth of the market.
The COVID-19 epidemic has negatively impacted the market growth owing to the strict restriction and lockdown imposed by the government in 2020. The epidemic has resulted in a fall in the number of patient visits to dental clinics and the enclosure of dental care facilities. Raw material procurement is unsuccessful; hence, materials of dental inlays and onlays are unavailable, which is negatively impacting the supply chain of these materials. However, with a fall in the number of COVID-19 patients, dental clinics are beginning to schedule dental procedures based on their capacity for dental clinic admission and patient comfort level.
Dental inlays and onlays are considered better substitutes for repairing and restoring damaged teeth. This procedure is aimed to blend with natural tooth color and more tooth is preserved during the procedure. The difference between dental inlays and onlays is that inlays are placed inside a cavity on a tooth whereas onlays replace the tips (cups) of the tooth. Dental inlays and onlays have enhanced physical properties to composite traditional fillings for posterior teeth, strong and durable nature, less microleakage, and minimal post-operative sensitivity than direct composite fillings.
The rise in public awareness regarding dental inlays and onlays procedures, the high adoption rate, increase in the prevalence of dental diseases, a surge in demand for cosmetic dentistry among the young population, and an increase in the number of dental practices worldwide are the major factors that drive the market. In addition, an increase in the public preference for porcelain-based dental inlays and onlays procedures, a rise in the adoption of CAD/CAM systems, and a rise in dental tourism in emerging countries are the other factors that boost the growth of the market. In addition, the rise in the adoption of dental inlays and onlays and the growing number of dental clinics across the globe fuel the growth of the market.
The porcelain segment accounted for the largest share of over 30.0% in 2021. This is attributed to the rapid surge in the demand for porcelain dental inlays and onlays in dental practices, extensive use of porcelain materials in dental restoration procedures, and rise in focus on dental aesthetics resulting in a large number of cosmetic dentistry treatments. In addition, porcelain dental inlays and onlays strengthen the tooth structure and are more conservative as compared to crowns. Based on material, the global market has been categorized into porcelain, zirconia, gold, and composite.
Porcelain materials do not provoke any reactions in the human body, are cost-effective, durable, and last much longer than conventional fillings. In addition, porcelain is a popular choice for dental inlays and onlays material as it is naturally translucent and it can match closely to the shades of teeth. Moreover, these materials are preferred when the decayed or broken part of the teeth is too large for conventional feeling.
In 2021, the direct segment dominated the market and accounted for more than 60.0%. Direct inlays and onlays are made by dental professionals within a set of dental clinics. Direct inlays and onlays require only one dental visit as it is an easy process for the dental patient to partake. In addition, direct inlays and onlays need minimum time for preparation and these are the better option for natural teeth. Based on type, the global market has been divided into direct and indirect.
Direct inlays and onlays have a fixed surface that matches the shape of the present enamel to aid it to stay in place when bonded with dental cement or dental adhesive. Factors such as a rise in the patient preference for direct type dental inlays and onlays and a surge in the adoption of minimum time-consuming dental procedures are the major factors that boost the growth of the market.
North America accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 35.0% in 2021. This is attributed to the increase in the prevalence of dental diseases, surge in the number of dental procedures in the region, and increase in public awareness regarding oral health are the key factors boosting the market growth. In addition, the availability of skilled dental professionals, an increase in expenditure on dental care, the presence of well-built healthcare infrastructure, an increase in demand for technologically advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures, and high personal disposable income are the other factors that fuel the growth of the market in North America.
Moreover, advancements in the techniques used in dental practices and improvements in dental inlays & onlays materials are likely to increase the number of dental visits by patients in this region. An increase in the number of dental practices such as corporate dental practices and group dental practices and a rise in the number of dental practitioners also fuels the growth of the market. For instance, according to the American Dental Association, nearly 201,927 registered dentists were practicing in the U.S. in 2021.
