Zirconia is a material used in dental restorative procedures. It is zirconium oxide, a form of ceramic that is more durable than metal alloys and porcelain. Zirconia is used in making dental crowns, dental bridges, etc. Dental crowns are used as covering fillings in teeth, in root canal, replace wear out teeth, teeth capping, etc. Apart from this, Zirconia has many advantages in dentistry such as:
Global Zirconia Based Dental Materials Market - Impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to hamper the growth of the global zirconia based dental materials market, owing to complete lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, according to the Oral Health survey in 2021, COVID-19 has negative impact on dental health care sector which resulted into decrease in the dental market revenue. Government across the world imposed lockdown as a safety concern due to which dentists were unable to practice, supply of dental materials were stopped which hamper the global zirconia based dental materials market.
After COVID -19 pandemic there is recovery in dental health care industry, through which it is expected to drive the growth of global zirconia based dental materials market. For instance, according to June 2020 update of American Dental Association, In U.S. dental spending then recovers to US$ 8.6 billion in October 2020 and then to US$ 11.7 billion in January 2021. There is an increase in dental practice by dentist, patient volume has been increased and employment growth in dental sector has been rapid than any other health care sector.
The global zirconia based dental materials market is estimated to be valued at US$ 292.7 Mn in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period (2022-2030)

|Restraints & Challenges:||
Increasing development in technology to work with the structure of zirconia based dental product, expected to drive the global zirconia based dental materials market over the forecast period.
New electronic platform development for sintering dental zirconia structures, expected to drive the global zirconia based dental materials market over the forecast period. For instance, in June 2022, Zirkonzahn USA Inc., developed sintering platform named Zirkonofen Turbo, controlled by an intelligent electronic system and it present sintering programs, the act of turning forming solid object by applying pressure and heat, in speedy way for each variety of Zirkonzahn zirconia enables the sintering of smaller zirconia structures in roughly 90 minutes. This will reduce the processing time upto 81% and minimize the electric consumption by 73%.
Global Zirconia Based Dental Materials Market – Restraints
High cost of zirconia dental product and insurance company not covering dental care, which may have negative impact on growth of global zirconia based dental materials market. For instance, Medicare, a government national health insurance program in the U.S. does not cover most of the dental care treatment coast. It pay hospital stay if needed but doesn’t cover dental care. For instance, 3M company’s product Zirconia Crowns cost US$ 189.21 whereas Porcelain - Base Metal Crown cost US$ 63.07 this is expected to reduce the global zirconia based dental materials market.
Global Zirconia Based Dental Materials Market – Regional Analysis
On the basis of region, the global zirconia based dental materials market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.
Among regions, North America zirconia based dental material market is expected to hold a dominant position during the forecast period, owing to increasing number of people visiting to dental clinics. For instance, according to Center of Disease Control and Prevention, the dental visit of the U.S. people above age 18 was about 63.0% and 85.9% of children aged between 2-17 have visited the dental clinics for dental checkups in year 2020 and 2018 respectively. Increasing number of people towards dental treatment is expected to drive the demand of zirconia based dental product.
Asia Pacific is expecting the growth in zirconia based dental material market in forecast period, owing to increasing demand for human resource in oral health care sectors. For instance, according to the one of the draft in 2021 from Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, in India, there is high demand for human resource for oral health to be go up with the establishment of Health & Wellness Centers under Ayushman Bharat, a National Health Protection Scheme, India. Since around August 2020, there were 2.78 lakh registered dental surgeons nationwide, according to data from the Dental Council of India.

Global Zirconia Based Dental Materials Market – Competitive Landscape
Major players operating in the global zirconia based dental materials market include Pritidenta GmbH, Aidite technology co., LTD, Ivoclar Vivadent., 3M, Glidewell Laboratories, Besmile Biotechnology Co., Ltd., GC America, SAGEMAX, Dental Direkt, Huge Dental, Alien Milling Technologies, Zirkonzahn, Kuraray Noritake Dental INC., Aurident, and Dentsply Sirona.
Zirconia are used because the current demand for more aesthetically attractive dental restorations and greater aesthetics. Zirconia based dental product are known for their high biocompatibility, superior durability, and toughness. The most recent pre-shaded zirconia is available in a variety of materials that are ideal for certain applications in the mouth, thus expanding its range of usage. Modern zirconia is very different from the initial items accessible.
When recovering a tooth, the clinician must choose the right materials. Important selection criteria include overall strength and beauty. In comparison to other all-ceramic materials, zirconia's properties are more attractive on a number of levels and suited for a wider range of clinical applications. Zirconia is a suitable materials for those worried about possible metal allergies or sensitivities. In order to produce dental zirconia in the tetragonal crystal structure at room temperature, it is treated with yttria, this increases the physical qualities of zirconia and makes it stronger which results in crack resistance.
Market players are initiating production of zirconia based dental product, which is expected to drive growth of the global zirconia based dental materials market, over the forecast period. For instance, in 2019, Shofu Dental India Pvt. Ltd, a manufacturer of quality porcelain teeth launched product Disk ZR Lucent Supra, a highly effective multilayer CAD/CAM material made by combining high strength zirconia. It is a premium restorative that successfully meets all clinical challenges. Shofu is a well know company which manufactures dental product with the help of modern research facilities and has its operations world wide
Dental materials are classified as medical devices and amendment of new regulation concerning safety of dental medical devices, zirconia based dental materials meets the international standard if evaluated for safety concerns. For instance, in 2021, Springer published an article on regulation of dental material which highlight that zirconia based dental implants has no abnormalities in animal tissue. Owing to meets the safety standards of regulatory, is expected to boost the market growth of global zirconia based dental products.
