Global Dental Implants Market: Analysis By Material (Titanium, Zirconium & Other), By Product (Endosteal, Subperiosteal, Transosteal & Others), By Design (Tapered & Parallel Walled), By Region, Size and Trends with Impact of COVID-19 and Forecast up to 2027
The global dental implants market was valued at US$4.22 billion in 2021, and is expected to be worth US$6.08 billion in 2027. Dental implants are referred to the artificial tooth roots, made of materials such as titanium or zirconium, that could be inserted into the jaw. They not only enable for the aesthetic and functional replacement of lost teeth, but also for the preservation of jaw structure by avoiding bone resorption or atrophy.
Dental implants do not need the grinding down of healthy nearby teeth, do not cause discomfort while eating or speaking, and are long-lasting with a natural appearance as compared to traditional fixed bridges or dentures. The preference for dental implants as a treatment option over conventional devices such as crowns, bridges, or dentures is therefore unsurprising. The global dental implants market is determined to grow at a CAGR of 6.54% over the forecasted period of 2022-2027.
Market Segmentation Analysis:
By Material: The report identifies three segments on the basis of material: Titanium Implants, Zirconium Implants and Other Implants. The titanium dental implants segment held the largest market share (more than 68%) in 2021. Titanium is the most suitable material or metal for dental implants due to its biocompatibility, and its large scale adoption, as well as its long-lasting nature. Titanium implants are gaining popularity as they are less invasive, affordable, and retain the tooth like a natural palate, driving the market growth. The global titanium dental implants market is further segmented into two procedures : single-stage and two-stage procedure.
By Product: The report identifies four segments on the basis of product: Endosteal Implants, Subperiosteal Implants, Transosteal Implants and Others. Endosteal dental implants segment held the largest market share (more than 44%) in 2021. Endosteal implants are the most common type of implants used in dentistry and are safe, reliable, and widely used, according to the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP). Additionally, endosteal implants, which come in screw, cylinder, and bladed types, are the root form of implants.
By Design: The report identifies two segments on the basis of design: Tapered Implants and Parallel Walled Implants. In 2021, tapered implants held the market's leading position and had a share of more than 65%. Tapered wall implants are perfect for immediate placement and are well suited for small gaps where the neighboring teeth's roots are close by. These advantages make them a popular option for treatment following immediate tooth extraction. In softer bones, these implants provide better stability. Further, rising preference of tapered dental implants on account of high stability and biocompatibility properties, increasing applications of dental implants in various therapeutic areas such as tooth replacement procedures, tooth decay, among others are some of the major factors that helped in the expansion of the market.
By Region: In the report, the global dental implants market is divided into four regions: Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, and ROW. Europe accounted for the maximum share of more than 37% of the global market in 2021. Rising life expectancy is changing the shape of the European nations age pyramid, the most significant change will be a notable shift toward a much older demographic structure, a trend that is expected to continue. Aging population requiring oral care services, increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry & dental aesthetics among patients and growing prevalence of dental ailments across the region along with rising awareness among individuals regarding dental health encouraging them to opt for dental implant treatments are considered the main factors driving the demand for dental implants in the region.
Asia Pacific is predicted to grow at a significantly high rate due to a large patient base and the expanding use of advanced implants in dentistry. Additionally, the expansion of medical tourism in Singapore, China, and India is probably going to favor the market growth in the region.
Growth Drivers: One of the key drivers of the market's expansion is the growing concern for oral healthcare. The market is rising substantially owing to the increasing incidence of oral diseases such as tooth decay, tooth cavity, periodontal disorders and others. Dental carries are the most common oral problem in adults and children owing to excessive consumption of sugar and smoking. Growing dental problems globally attributed to unhealthy eating habits has heightened the demand for dental implants. Dental implants have also become popular as an alternative to removable dentures and are used to replace the lost teeth. Consequently, growing concern for oral healthcare, globally has supported the growth of dental implants market. Other significant growth factors of the market include, expansion of dental service organizations, rising preference of cosmetic dentistry, surging geriatric population, rapid urbanization and surging focus on edentulous treatment.
Challenges: However, some challenges are impeding the growth of the market such as shortage of trained dentists and dental hospitals, high cost of dental implant treatment & reimbursement issues and greater risk of tooth loss associated with dental bridges Dental implants are considered a better option than veneers or crowns. However, the cost of treatment with dental implants is considerably high due to the significant cost of implants and surgery. The cost of a single dental implant can vary depending on the region and who is performing the procedure. A conservative cost estimate for a single dental implant is US$3,000-US$4,500. This cost includes the surgery for placement of an implant, all the components and the implant crown. Therefore, high cost of dental implant treatment along with little to no reimbursement for implant procedures in many countries is a major factor restricting the adoption of dental implants in developed as well as developing countries.
Trends: The market is projected to grow at a fast pace during the forecast period, due to increasing spending on dental services, accelerating penetration of digital dentistry and growing application of cad/cam technologies. Digital technologies are increasingly being used in dentistry for a variety of purposes, including diagnosis, implant design, implant manufacturing, placement, and more. One of the specific areas of dentistry where digital technology has improved is implant procedures. Digital dentistry is advantageous for patients, dentists and equipment suppliers. Dental clinics see overall improvement in profitability as the use of digital dentistry enhances the accuracy of procedures and enables dentists to treat more patients over the same period. Patients benefit in terms of convenience (i.e., fewer visits to see the dentist) and highly accurate procedures. Therefore, it is anticipated that the use of digital technology in implants would support market expansion.
Impact Analysis of COVID-19 and Way Forward:
Several dental events were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the majority of dental events held in 2020 were hosted in a virtual setting. Furthermore, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, many dentists have preferred not to open their clinics, opting instead for phone consultations and prescribing antibiotics. Dentists, including endodontists, feel that providing physical therapy may be a risk till the pandemic is suppressed. The cancellation of dental events significantly affected the sales, innovation and advancements in dental implant market and hence, impacted the overall market growth.
The global dental implant market was significantly impacted by COVID-19 in 2020. However, as vaccines are distributed around the world, the market returned to pre-pandemic levels by the end of this year. This growth would undoubtedly be fueled not only by an aging population that increases the prevalence of edentulism, but also by improvements in assisting technologies like surgical guides and treatment planning software that enable increased accuracy and implant reliability.
