Dental Materials Market by Type (Ceramics, Metal-Ceramics, Amalgam, Resin-based Composites, Glass Ionomer, Biomaterials {Bone Grafts, Membrane}, Bonding Agents), End User (Dental Lab, Dental Manufacturer, Clinics, Research)?Global Forecast to 2030
The dental materials market is projected to reach $8.40 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2023 to 2030.

Succeeding extensive secondary and primary research and in-depth analysis of the market scenario, the report studies the key industry drivers, restraints, challenges, and opportunities. The growth of the dental materials market is driven by the rising prevalence of dental disorders and the increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of CAD/CAM in dentistry offers significant market growth opportunities. However, the high cost of dental treatments hinders the growth of this market. In addition, the biocompatibility issue is a major challenge to the market’s growth.

Based on type, the dental materials market is segmented into indirect restorative materials, direct restorative materials, biomaterials, impression materials, and bonding agents. In 2023, the indirect restorative materials segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market. The adoption of indirect restorative materials is high due to the rising prevalence of periodontal diseases and dental caries. For instance, according to the World Health Organization, in 2022, 22% of the global population was affected by periodontal diseases. Additionally, the high awareness of dental health in developed countries, increasing demand for aesthetic dentistry, long-term durability, technological advancements in CAD/CAM dentistry, and increasing demand for implant dentistry contribute to the large share market share of this segment.

Based on end user, in 2023, the dental clinics & hospitals segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global dental materials market. Rising technological developments in dentistry, consolidation of dental clinics, and increasing prevalence of dental diseases contribute to the large market share of this segment.

Dental clinics and hospitals are the preferred choice of patients for the diagnosis and treatment of any health condition, including dental conditions. There has been an increase in the prevalence of dental diseases globally, posing a high burden on the global population. For instance, according to the WHO, nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide have oral diseases, with caries of permanent teeth (2 billion people) being the most common. Globally, dental caries remains a significant public health issue, ranking as the fourth most costly chronic disease in terms of treatment expenses. Dental caries not only cause pain and infection but can also lead to tooth loss if left untreated, significantly affecting a person’s overall well-being and quality of life.

An in-depth analysis of the geographical scenario of dental materials provides detailed qualitative and quantitative insights into five major geographies: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa, along with the coverage of major countries in each region. Asia-Pacific is slated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this market is attributed to the increasing prevalence of dental diseases in Asia-Pacific, the growing awareness of dental treatments and oral health, the rising healthcare spending, and the growth in dental tourism in the region.

Some of the key players operating in the global dental materials market are Institut Straumann AG (Switzerland), ZimVie. Inc. (U.S.), Envista Holdings Corporation (U.S.), 3M Company (US), DENTSPLY SIRONA Inc (US), Kulzer GmbH (Germany), GC Corporation (Japan), Ultradent Products Inc.
