Dental laboratories Market

Increasing technological advancement in dental services is expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period.

Rising technological advancement in dental services is expected to fuel the global dental laboratories market growth during the forecast period. In dental practice, the technology including intra-oral camera, CAD/CAM (computer-assisted design, digital X-rays, computer-assisted manufacture), cone beam CT, and dental lasers are now more commonly used in reconstructive and cosmetic treatments to assist patients visualize how they will appear following treatment.

Global Dental Laboratories Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic had a substantial economic impact in 2020, worldwide. The pandemic's consequences caused disruptions in different sectors supply chains. The pandemic also had a negative influence on the dental laboratory sector including supply chain disruptions, mandatory shelter-in-place requirements, and the closure of dental clinics which have significantly impacted the dental industry in 2020.

For instance, in March 2020, according to the American Dental Association (ADA), globally, more than 75% of dentists shuttered their doors for non-emergency patients. Furthermore, in February 2021, according to ADA and American Dental Hygienists Association study, 3.1% of the U.S. dental hygienists were infected with COVID-19 as of October 2020. Following the announcement of the lockdown in March 2020, several dental practices either shuttered altogether or limited their services. Dentists did not work efficiently without dental labs, resulting in poor service for individuals who have been unable to get their teeth checked for months due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Global Dental Laboratories Market: Restraint

High cost of dental products and equipment required for treatment is the major factor expected to restrain the growth of the global dental laboratory market over the forecast period. Standard material and instruments used for dental treatment are highly expensive. For instance, in September 2021, according to the American Dental Association's Health Policy Institute cost study, the total cost of crown, a single implant, abutment, and other required treatments is between US$ 3,100 to US$ 5,800. The cost of replacing several teeth is between $6,000 and $10,000. Hence, the high cost of dental procedures in likely to hamper the market growth to some extent over the forecast period.

Key Players

Major players operating in the global dental laboratories market include Envista Holdings Corporation, Dentsply Sirona, A-dec Inc., Straumann AG, Zimmer Biomet, GC Corporation, Ultradent Products Inc., Biohorizons Implants System, Inc., Biolase Technology, Inc., Dentatus Ab, Dentsply International, Inc., Gendex Ltd, Roland, Mitsui Chemicals, Inc., Planmeca, Septodont Holding, and Voco Gmbh.

Dental laboratories primarily manufacture and customize a wide range of products that aid in the provision of oral health care by a qualified dentist. Bridges, crowns, and dentures are examples of these products. Fabrication of these products need extreme accuracy and the technician's ability, which has a significant impact on the dental treatment. Dental prostheses were traditionally manufactured by hand by technicians using wax, acrylic, or other dental materials. A dental laboratory's major purpose in restorative dentistry is to perfectly replicate all of the aesthetic and functional criteria of the tooth, as determined by the qualified dentist, into a restorative solution. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) legalizes goods used in dentistry labs as medical devices; hence, these products must meet the FDA criteria for commercialization and are subject to good manufacturing practices. The majority of technicians are employed by independent commercial laboratories that provide services to dentists.

Market Dynamics

Rising prevalence of oral cancer is projected to boost the global dental laboratories market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in March 2020, according to World Health Organization (WHO), oral cancer is one of the three most common malignancies in several Asian-Pacific countries such as India and Japan. Tobacco, alcohol, and areca nut (betel quid) usage are all major causes of oral cancer.
