Dental Prosthetics and CAD/CAM Devices Market Report Suite | South Korea, Japan, Australia | 2010-2016 | MedSuite


This report measures and evaluates the Asia-Pacific market for crowns, bridges and
dentures. These devices are classified as types of dental restorations. In dentistry,
prosthetic devices are used to restore a missing part of a tooth or to replace a whole
tooth, a set of teeth or a full dentition. Dental prostheses differ from direct restorations,
such as conventional amalgam fillings, in several ways: they are generally made in
laboratories and their placement normally requires at least two visits to the dentist. In
addition, they are utilized either when the tooth lacks the structure to hold a filling, or
when there is no tooth at all. Moreover, prosthetic devices are expensive restorations
and this has a direct effect on their market. In addition, the report covers the
Asia-Pacific markets for CAD/CAM systems which manufacture dental prosthetics.

In 2008, the Asia-Pacific market for dental prosthetics (crowns, bridges and dentures) was valued at over US$6 billion. The Asia-Pacific market includes Australia, Japan and South Korea. The aging population and greater demand for aesthetic dentistry are driving forces in the prosthetics market. The global economic crisis, which began in 2008, has led to a slowdown in the overall market; however, the market is expected to grow over the forecast period, reaching US$7.2 billion by 2015.

This market includes:

§ Crowns and bridges
§ Dentures
§ Dental alloys and porcelain powder
§ Computer aided design/computer aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) systems

The Japanese market for dental prosthetics was the largest in terms of both unit volume and market value, as it accounted for approximately 80% of the total Asia-Pacific market.

All-ceramic prosthetic devices made using CAD/CAM technology are quickly gaining market share at the expense of conventionally fabricated devices. Although the economic recession has constrained patients’ discretionary incomes and limited the crowns and bridges market, the market for all-ceramic restorations is expected to quickly re-establish growth following the economic recovery.

The Asia-Pacific dental prosthetics market includes many local players such as: Addens, Ceracys, Dentaim and Renis in South Korea; GC in Japan; and Stoneglass in Australia. This report provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of market revenues by device type, market forecasts through 2015, unit sales, average selling prices, market drivers and limiters and a detailed competitive analysis, including manufacturer market shares and product portfolios.
