Dental Materials Market Insights

Financial barriers limit access to dental care and, therefore, limit the U.S. dental materials market across all categories. Despite an unemployment rate of 3.7% in 2019, 23% of Americans lack dental insurance coverage. The sale of dental materials has historically been correlated to the unemployment rate; however, sales have been lower than expected, as employers are not offering the same level of benefits as in previous decades.

US Dental Materials Market Size by Segment, 2016-2026

The aging generation born between 1944-1964, commonly referred to as the “Baby Boomers”, currently has a population of 76 million and will be a major driver of the dental materials market. The baseline health of this generation has improved over previous generations; however, the dental needs of this population will increase with age. This age group is at an increased risk of caries from gum recession and dry mouth from prescription medication use.

The American population is becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of better oral health. This trend is resulting in more trips to the dental office for diagnostic and preventative procedures, such as x-rays and cleanings.

Dental Materials Market Share Insight

US Dental Materials Market Share Leaders

Commonly referred to as the “Big 3” in the dental industry 3M, Dentsply Sirona and Kerr Corporation collectively represented over half of the total U.S. dental materials market share. Outside of the “Big 3,” no other company captured over 10% of the total share.

3M was the leader in six of the dental material segments. 3M’s in-depth market analysis and consultation with dental professionals play a key role in the company’s product development strategy and results in highly differentiated products. Dentsply Sirona captured the second-largest share of the market. It should be noted that, of the top three contenders, Dentsply Sirona was the only company to have products in all segments. Kerr Corporation was the third-largest market player, thanks to innovative products, such as its SonicFill™ line.

Septodont had the largest share of any single company in the anesthetic market. This company’s sales contributed to a notable portion of the dental anesthetic category, thanks to brand loyalty and innovative painless delivery systems, such as sprays. Expansion in South America is a major focus of this company, as it is expanding relationships in Colombia and has recently made acquisitions in Brazil.

3M was the market leader in the dental bonding agent segment. The company ran head-to-head with Kuraray, who ranked as a close second in the same market. Kuraray made strides in this segment due to the dominance this company has in both the total-etch and universal bonding agent markets, with a diverse product portfolio.

COVID19 Impact on the Dental Materials Market in the US

Each market segment was independently evaluated based upon the relative prioritization of dental procedures based on patient confidence and household income. As emergency procedures are unable to be delayed, despite many infected, a small proportion of the dental materials market was preserved, despite offices being closed for approximately 3 months in 2020.

Many individuals have been strongly negatively impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, losing income and/or jobs. As dental spending is highly correlated with household income, it is expected that many procedures will be postponed or canceled until patients are able to replenish lost income and return to a financially stable position.
