Tooth Filling Materials Market Size By Material (Composite Resin, Silver Amalgam, Glass Ionomer, Gold Fillings), By End-use (Hospitals, Dental Clinics), COVID-19 Impact Analysis, Regional Outlook, Application Development Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2021 - 2027
The tooth filling materials market is projected to exhibit robust growth by 2027 primarily driven by increasing occurrences of dental cavities across the globe. Moreover, rising prominence of dental wellness among consumers is slated to further propel market growth through the forecast timeline.
Dental fillings are typically done either with single or combination of materials, such as metals, glass, plastics, and others, in order to restore or repair teeth. These fillings are used to fill an area of tooth that has been extracted due to cavity or decay. Fillings are utilized to fix broken or cracked tooth and tooth that is worn down due to tooth grinding or nail biting.
Currently, several tooth filling materials are available in the market. Notably, market participants have been focusing on the development of innovative products, which has positively influenced industry expansion globally.
For instance, in July 2021, Vista Apex, a key provider of endodontic solutions and restorative materials, introduced a range of advanced bio-regenerative materials as alternatives to conventional tooth filling materials. The RE-GEN line of Bioglass-containing restorative materials have been designed to break the tooth decay cycle and enable the tooth to heal itself.
The RE-GEN products offer higher efficacy compared to traditional tooth filling materials in helping the tooth heal and further prevent tooth decay. In a recent study conducted by the School of Dentistry under the University of Alabama, the RE-GEN products surpassed expectations in neutralizing the oral pH, thereby curbing the ill effects of acid on teeth.
For extensive analysis, the tooth filling materials market has been segmented based on material, end-use, and region. With respect to material, the market has further been divided into composite resin, gold fillings, glass ionomer, silver amalgam, and others.
In 2020, the composite resin sub-segment held a significant share in the market and is expected to reach a valuation of around USD 955 million by 2027. A wide range of capabilities of composite resins, along with constant innovation and developments in the material, is set to fuel segmental growth through the forthcoming years.
In terms of end-use, the tooth filling materials market has been segregated into dental clinics, hospitals, and others. The hospitals sub-segment was valued at over USD 645 million in 2020 and is projected to expand at a notable pace over 2021-2027. Several factors, such as the availability of board-certified skilled dentists, high success rate, and faster & more efficient work, among others, are set to bolster segmental adoption over the assessment period.
In the regional landscape, the Middle East & Africa tooth filling materials market exceeded a valuation of USD 75 million in 2020 and is anticipated to witness substantial growth through the study timeframe. Rising awareness pertaining to dental disorders and oral health across various countries in MEA is likely to foster regional market growth in the future.
