Dental Materials Market Report Suite for US| 2017-2023 | MedSuite | Dental Cements, Impression Materials, Direct and Temporary Restoratives, Bonding Agents, Core Build-Up, Anesthetic Materials


The U.S. market for dental materials includes dental cements, impression materials, direct restoratives, temporary restoratives, bonding agents, core build-up materials and anesthetic materials. 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.

Dental Materials Market Trends

The growth potential of different dental material markets will vary significantly between 2016 and 2023. Markets can be separated into three categories according to their expected growth rates. The first category is composed of direct restoratives, dental cements and dental local anesthetics, which is driving the market forward with higher-than-average expansion. The second category encompasses core build-up materials, impression and bonding agents, which will maintain a steady, but slower growth rate. The final category includes the declining temporary restorative materials segment, which is declining as a consequence of the increasing popularity of CAD/CAM dentistry.

The dental local anesthetic was the fastest growing market than all other segments in the overall dental material market in 2016. Direct restoratives and dental cements both qualified as the second fastest growing market in 2016. However, direct restoratives will experience slightly more growth than dental cements throughout the forecast period. Nonetheless, cements too will continue to grow, largely due to the rising procedural volume of crowns and bridges.

Dental impression materials signify a somewhat flat market due to the opposing forces of digitization and procedural volume increases. As such, this segment experienced a growth rate below 1% in 2016. The adoption of CAD/CAM dentistry is a fairly slow process due to technology unfamiliarity and a price premium. Since this trend has not been so widely accepted, the impression materials market will continue to experience positive, but low, growth. Lastly, the segment for dental temporary restorative materials will be the only one to decline. Consequently, market trends for temporization materials will resemble the replacement of older technologies for superior ones that improve the clinician’s workflow and reflect consumer demand.

Dental Materials Companies Analyzed

3M ESPE‘s leadership of the dental cement market is largely due to the RelyX™ product line. RelyX™ is the primary cement of a large number of dental offices; it is the bestselling product in the United States, despite its premium price tag.

DENTSPLY Caulk/Pharmaceutical was the only major company to participate in all segments of the dental material market in 2016. Its strongest presence occurred in dental impressions and direct restoratives. DENTSPLY Caulk’s major advantage stemmed from the company competing in all three segments as opposed to its main rivals who competed in only two of them.

Similar to the interests of 3M ESPE, Kerr participated in all the segments of the dental materials market with the exception of dental local anesthetics and demonstratea great deal of activity in both the direct restorative and bonding agent segments.

GC America was the fifth largest competitor in the overall dental materials market due to its presence in the dental cement, impression, restorative and core build-up material domains. Dental cements appeared to be GC America’s hot market to participate in whereas the least action occurred in direct restoratives.
