Report Overview

The global restorative dentistry market size was estimated at USD 18.8 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.7% from 2022 to 2030. The growing demand for implants and cosmetic dentistry is the key factor driving the market growth. The growth is attributed to the increasing prevalence of oral health diseases, rising focus on aesthetics, and rising dental tourism in emerging markets. Furthermore, the development of advanced technological solutions will boost the growth of the restorative dentistry market. A rise in the use of restorative materials to fabricate dental restorations, increasing focus on aesthetics resulting in a large number of tooth repair and cosmetic dentistry procedures, and the growing adoption of biomaterials by dental practitioners further drive the market growth during the forecast period

 U.S Restorative Dentistry Market Size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD  Billion)

According to the WHO, as of May 2020, there were more than 42,48,389 COVID-19 reported cases. This has negatively affected the restorative dentistry market during the lockdown phase. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, dentists avoided going to the clinic for practice, opting instead for prescribing antibiotics and consultations remotely. Dental clinics remained closed because dentists would have become the potential carriers of disease and posed a high risk for nosocomial infections. The risk is primarily due to dental interventions that include the generation of aerosols and the handling of sharps.

The increasing prevalence of dental caries across the globe is expected to boost the demand for dental treatments. As per statistics from The Global Burden of Disease Study 2019, dental diseases have affected 3.5 billion people with caries of permanent teeth. It is estimated that 520 million children suffer from caries of primary teeth and 2 billion people suffer from caries of permanent teeth. Thus, the growing prevalence of dental disorders is anticipated to boost the restorative dentistry market.

Regular dental checkups may drive the demand for dental procedures. As per statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over USD 45 billion in the U.S. productivity is lost each year due to untreated dental diseases, and approximately 34 million school hours are lost each year due to unplanned dental care. The routine checkups mainly include root canals, crowns, dental fillings, maxillofacial procedures, and bonding treatments. Thus, regular dental checkups are anticipated to boost the restorative dentistry market. Various initiatives by major key market players such as product launches, mergers, and acquisitions are anticipated to boost the market.

Product Insights

Restorative material accounted for the highest market share of around 43.6% in 2022. The rapid growth of the segment is attributed to increasing prominence on aesthetics resulting in cosmetic dentistry procedures. In addition, a large number of tooth repairs are driving the adoption of biomaterials in dentistry and the widespread use of these materials in fabricating dental restorations. Furthermore, new technologies in the equipment have increased the precision and the quality of the restoration. These factors are anticipated to propel the segment's growth.

Restorative material is further sub-segmented into direct restorative materials, indirect restorative materials, biomaterials, bonding agents/adhesives, and impression materials. Amalgam is a direct material that has various benefits in restorative dentistry. Amalgam is durable, affordable, and a safe material that is used to restore molars and premolars. Amalgam can be used by individuals of all ages, in stress-bearing areas of the mouth. The amalgam protects against spillage during trituration, prevents contact of mercury with skin, and does not discard scrap amalgam into waste containers. The benefits of amalgam have increased its demand for usage, in turn contributing toward market revenue.

End-use Insights

Dental hospitals and clinics accounted for the highest market share of around 56.0% in 2022. The growth of the market is anticipated due to the increasing number of hospitals and dental clinics in regions such as Asia Pacific and Europe. The increasing enrollment in dental courses is also driving the growth of this segment. For instance, as per the NCBI in 2019, 2.7 lakh dentists are registered with the Dental Council of India (DCI). The growing presence of dental hospitals and clinics, including a high number of freshly passed out dental students per year, are likely to boost this segment.

 Global Restorative Dentistry Market Share, by end-use, 2022 (%)

Changing lifestyle habits such as smoking and unhealthy diet are expected to boost the market. According to CDC, in 2019, 47.2% of adults aged 30 years in the U.S. had some form of periodontal disease. Oral health diseases are growing due to health conditions such as diabetes and smoking, which is anticipated to boost the restorative dentistry market.

Regional Insights

The industry is led by Europe with a 39.3% market share in 2022, due to the growing awareness related to oral health and rapid growth in the target population. Furthermore, the increasing significance of aesthetics is likely to boost the regional market in the forecast period.

According to an article published by Eurostat in October 2021, Cyprus and Greece had the highest number of dentists per 1,00,000 inhabitants in 2018. The growing number of dentists in the country along with dental hospitals and colleges is anticipated to bridge the gap between demand and supply, thereby supporting the growth of the restorative dentistry market in the region.

Restorative Dentistry Market Trends by Region

According to the American Dental Association, in 2018, there were 199,486 dentists working in the U.S. The number of dentists in the country is growing due to the rising prevalence of tooth decay and the rising demand for cosmetic dentistry. This factor is anticipated to boost the market.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights
