Report Overview

The global restorative dentistry market size was valued at USD 16.17 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.6% from 2021 to 2028. The growing demand for implants and cosmetic dentistry is the key factor driving the market. The market growth can also be attributed to the increasing prevalence of oral health diseases, rising focus on aesthetics, and rising dental tourism in the emerging markets. Furthermore, the development of advanced technological solutions will boost the growth of the market. According to the WHO, in May 2020, there have been more than 42,48,389 COVID-19 reported cases and 2,94,046 deaths globally. This has negatively impacted the market growth due to lockdown. Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, many dentists were not going to the clinics for practice, instead, they were prescribing antibiotics and consultations remotely. Dental clinics were closed because dentists may become potential carriers of the disease and were at high risk for nosocomial infections. The risk is primarily due to dental interventions that include aerosol generation and handling of sharps. In addition, if preventive measures are not taken by the dentists and dental staff, the clinics can expose patients to cross-contamination.

U.S. restorative dentistry market size, by product, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion) 

The increasing prevalence of dental caries across the globe is expected to boost the demand for dental treatments. According to the FDI World Dental Federation, in 2017, the oral diseases impacted approximately 3.9 billion people globally, with untreated tooth decay impacting more than half of the world’s population, making it the most prevalent of all 291 conditions included in the Global Burden of Disease Study. Thus, the growing prevalence of dental disorders is anticipated to boost the growth of the market.

Regular dental checkups may grow the demand for dental procedures. As per the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2017, around 84.9% of children aged between 2 and 17 years, nearly 64.0% adults from 18 to 64 years of age, and nearly 65.6% of adults aged 65 and above have had at least one visit to a dentist. The routine checkups mainly include root canals, crowns, dental fillings, maxillofacial procedures, and bonding treatments. Thus, regular dental checkups are anticipated to boost the growth of the market.

Various initiatives by major market players such as product launches, mergers, and acquisitions are anticipated to boost the market growth. For instance, in 2017, Ivoclar Vivadent launched four new milling machines. The launch helped with high accuracy to enable high-precision restorations. Such product launches are anticipated to propel market growth.

Product Insights

The restorative materials segment accounted for the largest share of over 40.0% in 2020. The rapid growth of the segment is attributed to the increasing importance of aesthetics, which is resulting in cosmetic dentistry procedures. In addition, a large number of tooth repairs is growing the adoption of biomaterials in dentistry and the widespread of these materials in fabricating dental restorations. Furthermore, new technologies in the equipment have increased the precision and the quality of the restoration. These are the factors anticipated to propel the segment growth.

The restorative materials segment is further sub-segmented into direct restorative materials, indirect restorative materials, biomaterials, bonding agents/adhesives, and impression materials. Amalgam is a direct material, which 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, does not contact mercury with skin, and does not discard scrap amalgam into waste containers. The benefits of amalgam increase its demand for usage, in turn contributing toward the market revenue.

End-use Insights

The dental hospitals and clinics segment accounted for the largest share of over 50.0% in 2020. The growth of the segment is attributed to the increasing number of hospitals and dental clinics in emerging regions, such as the Asia Pacific and Europe. The increasing enrollment in dental courses is also driving this segment. For instance, as per the NCBI, in 2019, 2.7 lakh are registered with the Dental Council of India (DCI). The growing dental hospitals and clinics and the high number of freshly passed out dental students per year are likely to boost this segment's growth.

Global restorative dentistry market share, by end-use, 2020 (%)

Changing lifestyle habits such as smoking and unhealthy diet are expected to boost the market growth. According to the 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 are anticipated to fuel the market growth.

Regional Insights

Europe led the market with a share of over 35.0% in 2020 owing to the growing awareness related to oral health and rapidly growing target population. Furthermore, the increasing significance of aesthetics is likely to boost the regional market growth over 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 market in the 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 rising demand for cosmetic dentistry. This factor is anticipated to boost the growth of the market.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

Major market players are strengthening their service quality and expertise in carrying out complicated restorative dentistry procedures. There are very few companies manufacturing transplant devices and others offer topical products like gels, serums, and lotions. For instance, in September 2017, Coltene Holdings AG launched the flowable variant of Brilliant EverGlow submicron universal composite. The new product launch is anticipated to increase the revenue of the company. Some of the prominent players in the global restorative dentistry market include:
