The overall U.S. dental material market is projected to experience modest growth over the forecast period, largely limited by the emergence of intraoral scanners. Although digitization is yet to become widespread, it has already impacted the dental material market, particularly towards impression and temporary restorative materials. As digital impression taking scanners are becoming more affordable and popular, the need for dental impression and temporary restorative materials is dwindling. Despite the gradual digitization of dental offices, this trend will still put short term pressure on both the prices and unit sales.
The dental materials market is expected to exceed $1.8 billion by the year 2023 in the United States, and $1.1 billion in Europe.
One major trend within the dental material market is the continual improvement of delivery systems, which are tailored towards reducing material waste. As these developments help dentists scavenge materials, the need to purchase additional material is reduced. Newer technologies such as capsules/unit dose dispensers significantly decrease the amount of wasted material for each dental procedure. The average doctor reports more than 100% waste when using dental cements.
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 Europe. In recent years, a variety of measures have been taken to inform the public on the importance of dental health in hopes to decrease 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. Furthermore, the insurance coverage limit for dental needs has not been increased for several years, despite the rising prices of dental prosthetics, restorations and doctor visits. These factors make it increasingly less affordable for patients to see a dentist, consequently limiting the overall dental materials market.

Dental Materials Market Share Insights
3M ESPE’s clear leadership of this industry is apparent in both the United States and the European countries. With over one-quarter of the market share in both regions, 3M ESPE’s position is a result of their dedication to almost every major segment of this market. 3M ESPE maintained expertise in composite resin restorative materials, which have been on the rise in terms of demand. This company offers a wide range of composite renditions, including universal, flowable and bulk-fill products. Their signature Filtek™ product line features a variety of options, each catering to a specific restorative need. The Filtek™ Supreme Ultra Universal contains nanotechnology that allows the restoration to maintain a smoother surface, achieving long-term polish retention. Its universality allows dentists to use it anywhere in the mouth.
In addition to their composite products, 3M ESPE also a led the GI and RMGI restorative materials market. Most notable is their Ketac™ glass ionomer line, which offers both conventional and resin modified products.
The second leading competitor is Dentsply Sirona, although not too far ahead of the trailing companies. Dentsply is the only major company to participate in all segments of the dental material market. Its strongest presence occurred in dental impressions and direct restoratives. DENTSPLY Caulk’s has a small share in the dental cement market, representing the fifth largest player in this segment. This is largely due to its products being tailored towards the temporary cement market over the permanent cement market, as temporaries have a much smaller market value.
Other major players include Kerr, GC America/Europe, and Heraeus. This study analyzed over 60 companies in total, for a full list of companies see the table below.

Minimally Invasive Spinal Implants Statistics and Procedure Trends
The number of dental material procedures performed in the U.S. experienced modest growth throughout the forecast period, expecting to reach nearly 500 million procedures annually by 2023. The bulk of procedural growth was in dental anesthetic procedures, which expanded with the aging population. As the baby boomer generation reaches retirement, their dental needs compound. This generation reached 70 years of age in 2016. They are projected to live longer than previous generations, and therefore are more likely to invest in their teeth during the remainder of their lives. Consequently, the demand for dental anesthetics will increase due to this generation’s need for more pain-inducing procedures.
Despite the positive growth associated with dental anesthetic materials, the total dental material procedural volume is weighed down by declines of both temporary restorations and impressions. As CAD/CAM technologies become more widespread, they will shift a significant portion of the temporary restorative market into the permanent space.
The number of dental material procedures across Europe declined during the economic downturn particularly for restorative (indirect and direct) treatments. The number of patients visiting dentists in regions such as Italy and Iberia dramatically dropped between the years of 2010 and 2013 relative to previous years, resulting in a decreased number of procedures relevant to dental materials. This phenomenon was also present in more economically sound regions such as Germany. Over the past few years, procedure numbers have been increasing only marginally in correspondence with the recovering economy. The slight increase can be largely attributed to the aging population, while other segments of the population have been taking better preventive measures in face of the growing awareness on dental hygiene (through government campaigns), thus leading to a decrease in the growth of procedures.
