Dental cements are luting agents that predominantly serve to fill in gaps between restorations and the natural tooth. They are crucial for the precise positioning of dental restorations and to protect the pulp from discomfort and injuries. Typically, cements form a strong bond with enamel and dentin, ensuring the stability of metal and ceramic restorations in the patient’s mouth. Dentists utilize cements in a variety of dental applications, ranging from crowns and bridges, to inlays and onlays, to veneers and implants.

Cement use in dentistry applies to a wide range of procedures. Cements are applied to retain crowns, posts and affix partial dentures to tooth structure. Cement types are also specialized for use in different fields of dentistry; restorative, orthodontic, endodontic, surgery, implant, etc. The cements market has witnessed stable growth since 2013, as potential patients who had decided to hold off on restorative procedures during the Eurozone economic crisis have been returning to the dentists over the past couple of years. Further, innovative efforts have led to the performance enhancement of cement materials.

Significantly influencing the average dental cement market price is the lower-priced temporary cements; on the other hand, the higher-priced composite resin and resin modified glass ionomer permanent cements also affect the average selling price (ASP). Markets in Europe, such as Benelux, Scandinavia, Switzerland and Germany, were widely adopting resin-based cements more rapidly, and consequently exhibited a greater ASP increase relative to other countries that incorporate more conventional cement materials. Also causing the ASP to rise is the modernization of delivery methods, with a general movement towards capsulated doses.

Competition was more intense in some segments than others. The direct restoratives market, which represented the market with the most potential for revenues, displayed the highest number of manufactures competing for market share, albeit many held only marginal market share. Other segments had fewer competitors and exhibited higher levels of concentration, such as the market for dental local anesthetics, which are instead regarded as a pharmaceutical product. Private labeling has maintained a significant presence in certain regions which reflects the cost-sensitivity of the customer base.
