Zirconia (zirconium dioxide, ZrO2), often known as ‘ceramic steel’ has great toughness, strength, and fatigue resistance, as well as excellent wear properties and biocompatibility, making it ideal for dental application. Zirconia was proposed as a new ceramic material in the late twentieth century due to an increased interest in aesthetics and concerns about toxic and allergic reactions with certain metals such as titanium alloys and other metals. Zirconia has been used as a structural material for dental bridges, crowns, implants, and inserts, due to its biocompatibility, radiopacity, and high fracture toughness.

The global zirconia based dental materials market is estimated to be valued at US$ 226.6 million in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period (2022-2030).

The increasing product launches is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.

Key players in the market are focusing on product launches, which is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in September 2021, Dentsply Sirona, an American dental equipment manufacturer and dental consumables producer, announced the launch of a truly aesthetic, high-strength zirconia CAD/CAM block, CEREC MTL, in a partnership with VITA Zahnfabrik, a company providing innovative solutions for superior quality dental prosthetics. CEREC MTL Zirconia combines a high level of aesthetics and ease of processing alongside the strength familiar with zirconium oxide in a multilayer graduated zirconium oxide block.

Global Zirconia Based Dental Materials Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization has declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.

COVID-19 can affect the economy in three main ways; by directly affecting production and demand, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, and others are facing problems with regards to transportation of drugs from one place to another.

The COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown in various countries across the globe has negatively impacted the financial status of dental businesses in the world. Dental practices across the world were closed during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. All dental appointments were postponed and some of them were canceled for a few months except for emergency treatment. According to the report of March 2021 by the World Health Organization, dental care services were one of the highly affected essential health services due to the outbreak of COVID-19, with 77% of countries reporting complete or partial disruption. Thus, COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the global zirconia based dental materials market.

Global Zirconia Based Dental Materials Market: Restraint

The major factors that hinder growth of the global zirconia based dental materials market include high dental treatment costs and lack of insurance coverage in developing countries.

Key Players

Major players operating in the global zirconia based dental materials market include 3M, GC America Inc., Sagemax, HUGE, Zirkonzahn, Dentsply Sirona, Glidewell, Pritidenta GmbH, KURARAY NORITAKE DENTAL INC., Aurident, Aidite Technology Co,.Ltd, Shenzhen Upcera Dental Co., ltd., DentalDirektindia.com, and Ivoclar Vivadent.

Zirconia has been used in dentistry as a replacement for metal-ceramic dental restorations. Because of its biological, mechanical, and optical properties, zirconia has emerged as a versatile and promising material among dental ceramics, accelerating its routine usage in CAD/CAM technology for various forms of prosthetic treatment. Zirconia restorations have better aesthetics than traditional porcelain fused to metal restorations, owing to their exceptional optical properties. It is being used in dentistry applications for producing endodontic posts, crown and bridge restorations, and implant abutments as a popular alternative to alumina used as a biomaterial.

Market Dynamics

The increasing product launches and technological advancements in optimizing zirconia based dental products by the key players in the market are expected to drive the global zirconia based dental materials market over the forecast period. For instance, in September 2021, KURARAY NORITAKE, a company that develops high-end dental products from ceramics to composites and even bio-materials, launched KATANA Zirconia HTML Plus, which offers an increased translucency and optimized color without compromising its flexural strength. It is suitable for a variety of applications, including long-span bridges with a minimum wall thickness of just 0.4 mm in the anterior and 0.5 mm in the posterior region.

Moreover, the various advantages provided by zirconia based dental materials such as zirconia crowns are expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. Zirconia crowns provide good strength and durability, thereby making them a good choice for crowns. Furthermore, zirconia is the choice for many dentists due to its biocompatibility, as it’s less likely to provoke the body into producing a reaction or immunological response like inflammation.
