Market Value and Industry Trends

The aging European population is the most significant driver of the dental materials market. Baby boomers are projected to live longer than those of previous generations and are therefore more likely to invest in their oral health during the remainder of their lives. Consequently, the demand for dental materials will increase due to this generation’s need for more crowns, bridges, and other restorations.

EU Dental Materials Market Size by Segment, 2016 - 2026

The World Health Organization (WHO), along with a number of local governments and national dental associations, continue to strategize on strengthening oral health promotion. In recent years, a variety of measures have been taken to inform the public about the importance of dental health, in hopes of decreasing the number of cavities across Europe. Increased public awareness has led to more preventive dentistry, thereby decreasing the extent to which restorative procedures are necessary.

The digital integration that is slowly taking place within dental practices and labs across Europe is certain to change the space. The current barriers are high prices for CAD/CAM systems, as well as the time it will take dentists to learn and adopt these systems into the workplace. Once integrated, an intraoral scanner will streamline otherwise difficult procedures, as well as being used for both full and removable dentures, fabrication of orthodontic appliances, fabrication of aligners in the office and sleep apnea appliances. Another trend is the rise of AI-enabled tools for dentistry. Once implemented, an AI system could analyze a vast database of diagnostic images, such as X-rays, to point dentists to the most probable areas of concern, increasing both the speed and probability of detection.

COVID19 Impact On the Dental Materials Market in Europe

The COVID-19 global pandemic was especially damaging to dental markets, prompting many dental clinics across Europe to temporarily close. Emergency procedures were still being performed in hospital settings. The purpose of the impact of COVID-19 chapter within the scope of this report is to provide directional guidance on the impact of COVID-19 on the dental materials markets in Europe. It estimated that the market size will return back to pre-COVID19 levels in late 2021 / early 2022.

Competitive Analysis

European Dental Materials Market LeadersBy 2020, more than 75% of the European Dental Materials market was shared by five companies, whereas the remainder was scattered across a multitude of competitors. The competitor with the most dominant position was undeniably 3M, which competed across all market segments. 3M ESPE was the only competitor that managed to achieve a total market share of over 30%.

The second-largest player in the European market was Dentsply Sirona. Like 3M, Dentsply Sirona competed in all six dental materials segments and did so quite successfully. The majority of its success stemmed from the direct restorative material market. Additionally, the company maintained a pharmaceutical sector specializing in dental anesthesia.

The third leading competitor in the EU Dental Materials market by 2020 was GC Europe. The company competed within all the dental material segments with the exception of the dental anesthetic market. Its main sources of revenue stemmed from the direct restorative material and dental cement markets. Based on the company’s financial reports, the direct restorative material market was one of the main drivers of GC Europe’s business.
