COVID19 Impact On The Dental Implant Market in South Korea

Due to COVID19, the South Korean dental implant market size saw a decrease of 25% in 2020 from a valuation of almost $307 million in 2019. The latest analysis shows that the South Korean market is expected to get back on its feet in early / mid 2021 and fully recover.

South Korea has been widely praised for its quick and effective response to the pandemic, which allowed the majority of dental practices to remain open, minimizing the impact on the dental implant and final abutment market. However, dentists have noted a decline in procedures due to public fear of infection within the practice setting. Thus, this study takes a closer look at how this trend will impact the market in 2021 and beyond.
