The dental biomaterials market is growing at a similar rate to that of dental implants. Growth is primarily being driven by the growth of the dental implant market and increasing proportion of implant procedures that use dental biomaterials. The total number of procedures that recruit biomaterials is growing in proportion to improvements in consumer awareness, as well as the training/education of dental professionals placing implants. Additionally, as implantology is integrated into the workflow of a general practitioner (GP), the population of dentists willing to invest in pricey equipment, such as growth factors, is expected to expand.
The market for dental biomaterials includes dental bone graft substitutes, dental growth factors and dental barrier membranes. The level of development of the dental implant market highly dictates the corresponding size and growth of the DBGS market.
