u.s. dental materials market

According to the latest findings by iData Research, the U.S. dental materials market is limited by financial barriers. Despite an unemployment rate of 3.5% by the end of 2022, roughly 29.8% of Americans lack dental insurance coverage. The sale of dental materials has historically been correlated with the unemployment rate; however, sales have been lower than expected, as employers are not offering the same level of benefits as in previous decades.

In spite of this trend, there has been a lot of action within the U.S. dental materials market and multiple companies have made strategic product launches and acquisitions to improve their market positioning in 2023 and beyond.

  1. In November 2021, DenMat received a patent for a caries-resistant composite material. With this patent, DenMat will be able to create an innovative platform that can be used for virtually any restorative material that aims for strength, esthetics, and long-term clinical success.
  2. In December 2021, Septodont acquired the portfolio of 4 dental care brands and related medical devices from Sanofi.
