This market’s value is expected to continuing growing, especially within the resorbable segment. The resorbable market maintained the clear majority due to its clear advantages despite its higher price point. The resorbable market is highly attractive in terms of its potential for revenues, therefore drawing in a number of competitors. Growth in unit sales will continue to push this market’s value forward. Despite the dominance of resorbable products, the non-resorbable market continues to exhibit growth. Non-resorbable qualities are attractive in specific cases, with most of their appeal stemming from its relatively inexpensive price point. The bulk of non-resorbable membranes are titanium-based, which is available at a much less expensive price than alternative materials. The combination of the weak economy in Brazil and lack of government insurance makes the region a cost-sensitive environment. As such, relatively inexpensive products are an especially important option in the dental market. Nonetheless, the benefits associated with resorbable products have shrunk the market for non-resorbable materials. Overall, non-resorbable products will remain relevant as a cost-efficient solution, but will continually represent the minority in the dental membrane market.
Barrier membranes are a critical component to regeneration therapy and are aimed at restoring the form and function of the mouth. Commercially available on the market, barrier membranes function in dental surgeries to help retain bone grafting materials, to exclude epithelium and connective tissue from entering into sites of desired bone and ligament regeneration, or for the combination of these reasons. Whether restoring lost bone around teeth or implants, or in larger areas of the jaws affected by trauma or disease, too often there is inadequate gingival tissue to cover the membranes, leading to membrane exposure, extensive membrane contamination and procedural failure, which is unacceptable.
