Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Mercury-free dental implants are made from zirconia, ceramic or titanium which is a bio-compatible, ceramic material. Zirconia completely assimilates (osseointegrates) into jaw bone without any signs of inflammation or foreign body rejection. Titanium implants are gray in color. of the titanium implants. Zirconia is white and therefore will not show thru thin tissue. Dental prosthetics are implants or dental fillers that facilitate bone formation and help in wound healing procedures in dental cavities due to tooth loss or tooth decays. Over the past years, more ceramic components have been incorporated into dentistry due to their clinically proven strength and aesthetic benefits. All-ceramic crowns and implant abutments in treatment plans are in trend, but the implant itself is now available in a one-piece design made from biocompatible zirconia.
Mercury-free dental implants materials market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
The spread of coronavirus is negatively impacting the sales of mercury-free dental implant materials which are majorly used for treatment of different dental diseases. The dental procedures generally require close contact with the patient’s oral cavity, saliva, blood, and respiratory tract secretions which can increase the risk of cross-infection. Furthermore, in the current situation, dental clinics will remain closed in containment zones, however they can continue to provide tele triage. Patients in this zone can seek ambulance services to travel to the nearby COVID dental facility. Dental operations are restricted to emergency and urgent treatment procedures only.
The mercury-free dental implants materials market is estimated to be valued at US$ 10.3 billion in 2020 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period (2020-2027).

The increasing prevalence of dental diseases and product approvals are expected to boost growth of the mercury-free dental implants materials market
The increasing incidence and prevalence of dental diseases such as dental carries is expected to boost the mercury-free dental implant materials market growth during the forecast period. According to FDI World Dental Federation’s Oral Health Atlas published in 2015, oral disease affects around 3.9 billion people worldwide, with untreated tooth decay impacting around 44.0% of the world’s population. The reason for poor oral health is unhealthy diet, tobacco use, excess alcohol consumption, and poor oral hygiene which lead to various dental issues such as cavities, gum disease (gingivitis), periodontitis, sensitive teeth, and others.
Furthermore, the mercury-free dental implants materials market is expected to witness significant growth in the near future owing to launch of new products. For instance, in June 2018, Nobel Biocare announced the launch of new NobelPearl ceramic implants at EuroPerio9 (Congress of European Federation of Periodontology) in Amsterdam. NobelPearl offers greater restorative flexibility compared to one-piece or cemented ceramic implants owing to the two-piece, reversible cement-free internal connection. The Inter-X internal connection is specifically designed for ceramic implants.
Mercury-free dental implants materials market - Restraints
High treatment costs and lack of insurance coverage dissuades majority of the population from visiting a dentist even in developed economies such as the U.S. and U.K. which is expected to hamper the mercury-free dental implants material market growth. For instance, according to 2016 statistics of the Oral Health Foundation, 88% of the adult population in the U.K. does not have dental insurance and around 63% of the adults prefer visiting National Health Service (NHS) dentists rather than private dentists due to high costs associated with the later. Furthermore, according to the New National Survey published in the American Dental Association in 2014, 40.2% of adults in the U.S. said that they would forego dental care due to high costs associated with it.

Mercury-free dental implants materials market – Regional Analysis
North America accounted for the largest share in the mercury-free dental implants materials market in 2019 owing to increasing tooth loss among adult and geriatric population. This has resulted in an increase in the number of dental implantation procedures in the region. For instance, according to statistics by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry in August 2018, in 2017. Moreover, around 500,000 people undergo dental implantation treatment each year in the U.S. Thus, the rising number of dental implant procedures is expected to drive the mercury-free dental implant material market growth during the forecast period.
Furthermore, between key players are expected to accelerate the Asia Pacific mercury-free dental implants materials market growth in the near future. For instance, in August 2016, Institut Straumann AG announced that they have acquired Equinox, a fast-growing dental implant company with a leading position in the value segment in India. The acquisition enabled Straumann to enter the emerging Indian market where the need for reliable, effective and affordable tooth replacement solutions is huge. Straumann will provide Equinox with the resources to sustain its development and dynamic growth in the value segment and will benefit from Equinox’ networks, infrastructure and local expertise to establish Straumann’s premium brand in India.
