Industry Trends The global minimally invasive spine surgery market (MIS) is considered by many to be the most exciting and controversial segment of the orthopedics industry. This market has traditionally been a segment of the orthopedics market but, due to rapid growth and a large market size, many manufacturers view spine as a key business
Industry Trends A major limiter preventing market growth in the dental bone graft substitute and other biomaterials markets is the commoditization across the dental bone graft substitute and dental barrier membrane segments. While various distributors compete for market share, many receive their products from the same suppliers, and further market penetration of small competitors has
Industry Trends Despite many challenges, growth is expected in many market segments, as the patient demographics in the U.S. maintain a steady demand for such procedures. Growth has slowed in the last few years as newer, minimally invasive innovations gradually cannibalized the traditional spine market. The VCF segment will be the fastest growing in the
Industry Trends The drive towards commoditization has limited the dental implants market. While premium implant companies control a large portion of the market, more affordable value and discount options are on the rise. As a result, many companies have engaged in price cuts to attract customers from their competitors. Even premium companies are recognizing the
Industry Trends An ongoing trend within the dental prosthetic market would be the increasing movement towards digitization, which is also driving market growth. The digital denture market encompasses both dentures that are produced via 3D printers and those developed from CAD/CAM technology. The current 3D printer market is largely centralized around models and trials. As such,
Industry Trends The most impactful factor limiting growth of the digital dentistry market is the emergence of relatively inexpensive products. Foreign, inexpensive brands have penetrated the market for zirconia CAD/CAM blocks and discs in the United States and Europe, driving the overall ASP downwards. Generic brands produced in the U.S. have captured a notable portion
The full report suite on the Mexican market for spinal implants and VCF includes segments for traditional cervical and thoracolumbar fixation devices, interbody devices, motion preservation devices, vertebral compression fracture (VCF) treatment, and spinal instrumentation. Despite many challenges, growth is expected in many market segments, as the patient demographics and rising incomes in Mexico maintain a steady demand for such procedures. Although future growth may be cannibalized to an extent by the growing MIS markets, this is not expected to stifle projections for the near future.
The full report suite on the Mexican market for minimally invasive spinal implants includes segments for MIS interbody devices, MIS pedicle screws, spinous process fixation, facet fixation, spine endoscope and MIS spine instrumentation. Growth is expected in many segments, as patient demographics in Mexico maintain a steady demand for such procedures. However, others have seen a decline as a result of competing technologies and difficulties created by currency fluctuation.
Industry Trends Growth of the denture market is dictated by a couple of factors, including the aging population. The elderly population in the United States consists of the largest demographic of edentulous patients. As such, growth of the elderly population will increase the potential volume of patients for denture procedures, thereby stimulating market growth. In
The full report suite on the Mexico market for dental bone graft substitutes includes dental bone graft substitutes and dental membranes. In addition to the primary, there is an appendix outlining the emergence of dental growth factor products. However, as this market is relatively small, a complete market analysis was not conducted in this report.
The full report suite on the Mexico market for dental implants and final abutments includes dental implant fixtures and final abutments materials. In addition, there is an appendix outlining the emergence of treatment planning software and surgical guides. However, as these markets remain relatively small, a complete market analysis of the respective spaces was not conducted in this report.
Barrier membranes are a critical component to regeneration therapy and are aimed at restoring the form and function of the mouth. Commercially available on the market, barrier membranes function in dental surgeries to help retain bone grafting materials, to exclude epithelium and connective tissue from entering into sites of desired bone and ligament regeneration, or for the combination of these reasons. Whether restoring lost bone around teeth or implants, or in larger areas of the jaws affected by trauma or disease, too often there is inadequate gingival tissue to cover the membranes, leading to membrane exposure, extensive membrane contamination and procedural failure, which is unacceptable.
Dental implant fixtures are artificial tooth roots that support a restoration placed for a missing tooth or teeth and aid in the prevention of jaw bone loss. They are typically offered in the form of a metal-based material such as titanium and are inserted into the jaw to replace missing teeth. They can be described based on their shape and method of attachment to the jaw. In the case that a patient suffers tooth loss from tooth decay, root canal failure, gum disease (periodontists), trauma to the mouth (a tooth injury), excessive wear and tear or congenital defects, he or she may be in the position to receive an implant. Other options are available on the market in the case that a patient has a missing tooth. Experts now regard implants with attached crowns as the preferred method for treating tooth loss because implants maintain the same functionalities as natural teeth and help preserve the jaw structure by preventing atrophy from bone loss. Bridgework and dentures are an alternative solution that addresses the cosmetic issue of having a missing tooth, but they do not prevent bone loss. Permanent implants maintain proper chewing function and exert appropriate, natural forces on the jawbone to keep it functional and healthy.
A final abutment is a metal piece that connects to a dental implant via an abutment screw. The abutment further functions as a connector between the implant and final outer crown placed on top of the implant. Often times, a provincial abutment is administered, but ultimately it must be replaced by a final abutment to ensure a permanent solution. Final abutments are offered in a variety of material types including titanium, steel, ceramic, zirconia and even gold.
