Trends Limiting and Driving the CAD/CAM Dental Device Market In Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina

Digital Dentistry Markets in Latin America

iData Research has conducted a thorough analysis on various positive and negative trends affecting the Digital Dentistry Market in Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina. Though the three countries have exemplified similar characteristics in demographic features and trends, learning more in-depth about a country’s market can be advantageous for potential future investment opportunities. 

What are the Key Geographies in the Digital Dentistry Market for Latin America, and How Are They Doing?

Brazil: There are numerous trends in Brazil driving the Digital Dentistry Market. One of such trends is convenience. The CAD/CAM technology gives dentists the ability to fabricate prosthetics in one dental visit instead of two. This increase in efficiency contributes significantly to the success of this market. However, one prominent factor that hinders the progress of the Digital Dentistry Market is cost. Though the price of CAD/CAM Devices has recently decreased, they are comparably equivalent to the amount of a house mortgage. This obstacle limits the growth of this market. The leading companies in the CAD/CAM Device Market are Dentsply Sirona, Amann Girrbach, and Zirkonzahn. The top companies in the market for CAD/CAM materials (not devices) are Amann Girrbach, Dentsply Sirona, and Ivoclar Vivadent. Amann Girrbach is currently the company with the largest revenue share in the CAD/CAM Material Market due to its advanced milling systems and the diversity of its products. Ivoclar Vivadent also continued its success due to effective marketing campaigns and their new lithium disilicate blocks product. 

Argentina: Similar to Mexico and Brazil, the market for digital dentistry in Argentina presents both limiting and driving factors. The first limiting factor is inflation (the general increase in the price of products and the loss of purchasing power). The price volatility has severely limited growth, since, for the past 5 years, Argentina has had an inflation rate of 10% and higher. This, unfortunately, has continued in 2020 and has limited the purchasing power of both dentists and patients. On the positive side, trends involving the demands for aesthetics and convenience have driven the Digital Dentistry Market in the country. Competition in the Argentinian digital dentistry market is relatively small in size, with Dentsply Sirona dominating the Latin American CAM/CAD Device Market through strong milling systems, chairside systems, laboratory scanners, and intraoral scanners. Ivoclar Vivadent also continued its success in the CAD/CAM Material Market in Argentina due to the same reasons previously mentioned with regards to Brazil. 

Mexico: Though the low purchasing power of the average Mexican Dentist/Dental Lab and the high prices of CAM/CAD machines are prominent factors in the limitation of the Digital Dentistry Market, trends that contribute to the success of this market should not be overlooked. One such trend gaining prevalence in recent years is the demand for aesthetic treatments. Considering CAM/CAD machines make products from aesthetically pleasing materials, the desire for these devices has increased, benefiting the market. Furthermore, due to a growing aging population, the need for dental prosthetics such as crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays have increased. The increase in demand for these appliances, in turn, contributes to the success of the Digital Dentistry Market since the development of these products have been fabricated through digital means. With regards to competitive analysis, Dentsply Sirona, Amann Girrbach, and Planmeca are leading companies in the CAD/CAM Device Market, and Ivoclar Vivadent, Dentsply Sirona, and Amann Girrbach are leading companies in the CAD/CAM Material Market.
