The impression material market is composed of both preliminary and final impressions–specifically alginate, VPS, and polyether based materials. A segment of “other” impression materials are also included, which primarily pertain to hybrid impressions such as vinyl-polyether materials. In later years, the impression material market will be threatened by the introduction and adoption of intraoral scanners. This threat has varying implications for the different material segments. Intraoral scanners replace the necessity of impression materials and will ultimately cause the impression material market to contract. However, it will take nearly a decade for this technology to be adopted to a significant degree. Alginate impression materials produce the least reliable impression models; however, the alginate market’s sales volume continues to be quite large. The explanation for this is twofold. Firstly, doctors find it valuable to create a preliminary model prior to producing a precision impression. Therefore, despite the inaccuracy of these materials, alginates constitute a sizable market volume. The use of alginate materials leave dentists more prone to errors during the impression-taking process. Consequently, the alginate impression must be performed several times before it suffices. Reproduction leads to wastage, which further adds to alginate volumes demand.

Dental impression materials are used to take an impression of the hard and the soft tissue in the intraoral cavity. They are then sent to the dental laboratory to be used in the production of prosthetics. In essence, they are an imprint of the teeth structure and the soft tissue surrounding it. The conventional method of taking an impression involves placing the material on the teeth to produce a cast. The type of material used in this process matters significantly, as it has to represent the actual teeth structure accurately and should remain stable until the production of the restoration.
