The Dental Clinical Instrument Manufacturing industry has grown slightly over the five years to 2017 due to consistent demand for routine dental procedures as well as the growing population of Americans over the age of 65 demanding significantly more dental care due to age-related conditions. Industry performance over the past five years has further been accentuated by overall growth in demand and ability to pay for healthcare, led by the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. New product development has already begun to impact industry operations, and will likely set the pace for industry growth in the next five years. In order to remain competitive, the industry's largest operators will continue to hire and retain highly skilled research and development (R&D) personnel to develop new cutting-edge products, while small companies will also pursue R&D in order to appeal to niche markets.
This industry manufactures tools and other instruments used in clinical practices by dentist offices and dental laboratories. These include diagnostic and procedural tools, cements and other impression materials, instrument storage and cleaning systems and office equipment such as dental chairs and x-ray machines.
