Global dental laboratory market is expected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period due to significant increase in demand for cosmetic dental procedures, rising geriatric population base, awareness regarding oral healthcare, and genital dental deformations. Technology advancements in dental laboratory such as use of hydroxyapatite and bone morphogenic proteins as implant materials facilitating reduced chair time, faster healing, and painless procedures are additionally expected to provide growth to this market. Similarly, with advent of advanced imaging techniques such as Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) helping in planning, handling complicated procedures, and 3D Imaging of dental implants, crowns, bridges leading to better patient diagnosis are further expected to boost dental laboratory market in coming seven years. However, lack of skilled technicians, economic profile and affordability of the patients especially in emerging economies of Asia Pacific is expected to impede market growth.
The overall dental laboratory market is categorised on the basis of the application into three types such as dental supplies, consumables and equipments. Consumables are further segmented in to dental membrane materials, tissue regeneration and bone graft materials. Equipments market can be further studied with respect to electrosurgical devices, headgears, cone-beam CT Systems, compressors, dental lasers and other devices.

DAMAS Standards are based upon FDA’s quality system and GMP Standards which all dental laboratories must concede with. Additionally, advanced healthcare expenditure is further expected to provide this market with growth platform. European market owing to existence of baby boomers and availability of affordable dental alternatives followed North American market. Asia Pacific market is expected to grow at a lucrative rate due to increasing disposable income, increasing awareness of oral healthcare among the population, larger untapped opportunities and rapidly improving healthcare infrastructure over the forecast period.
