The global dental implants market size was valued at USD 3.90 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 4.12 billion in 2022 to USD 6.34 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with dental implants experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of -9.9% in 2020 as compared to 2019.

Dental implants are devices used to support dental prosthetics/false teeth. The increasing prevalence of oral disorders globally is surging the demand for these implants. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), people suffering from oral diseases in 2020 were 3.5 billion. Thus, the increasing instance of oral diseases globally is anticipated to boost the demand for these implants during the forecast period. The demand for tooth implants is expected to grow rapidly due to the advantages of implants over other tooth-replacement methods such as safety, effectiveness, natural-looking teeth, and durability.

The growing awareness about oral health, rise in economies, and the increase in importance of aesthetic restoration of tooth implants are factors poised to boost the growth of the market during the forecast period.


Postponed Elective Procedure amid COVID-19 to Lead to Revenue Decline

The emergence of COVID-19 has impeded the demand for these implants due to a decline in elective surgical procedures. Dental care was considered as an emergency care service in major countries such as the U.S. during the COVID-19 pandemic. The reducing number of patient visits to emergency care, the rapid spread of COVID-19, and government regulations from several countries that have postponed elective surgeries are some of the factors that impacted the market growth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • For instance, according to the Journal of Oral Implantology, there was a decline of 38.0% in patient visits to the emergency dental services at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic than before the pandemic began. Nonemergency dental services declined by 30% of pre-COVID-19 levels. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic had a major effect on the utilization of dental services in the U.S.

The market players witnessed a significant decline in revenue generated during 2020. For instance, Institut Straumann AG registered a decline of around -5.4% in total revenues generated in 2020 as compared to 2019. The dental implant solution segment of the Institut Straumann AG witnessed a major decline of -14.5% in 2020. Additionally, Envista registered a decline of around -15.6% in the total revenues.

However, during 2021, patient visits to dental clinics and hospitals were increased as the regulations imposed by governments were relaxed. In 2021, the demand for implants was high due to increase in patient visits and the reopening of all the facilities in various geographies. Thus, the demand for these implants increased during 2021, which increased the revenues of the key companies in the market. The revenues generated by Envista in 2021 increased by 30.1% as compared to the revenues in 2020. Therefore, the reopening of healthcare services had a positive impact on the demand for dental implants in 2021.

Growing Adoption of Digital Implant Dentistry to Augment Market Growth

Penetration of digital technologies in the dental industry is booming these days with various uses from diagnosis, implant designing, implant manufacturing, placement, and others. Procedures for the implants is one of the particular aspects of dentistry that has been enhanced by digital technology.

  • For instance, according to the Journal of Multidisciplinary Care, in 2020, digital dental technology is entering the mainstream and used by approximately 34.0% of clinicians. Thus, the use of digital technology in implants is projected to support the market growth.

The use of dental scanners, CAD/CAM machines, CBCT, and 3D printing technology has been employed in dental offices and laboratories, allowing dentists to implement modern dental treatment approaches. The market is expected to witness positive growth owing to this type of modernization of dental practices and the adoption of the latest technology trends in digital dentistry.


Increasing Prevalence of Dental Disorders to Boost Market Growth

Major factors contributing to the dental implants market growth include increasing incidence of tooth loss, high demand for aesthetic dentistry, rise in per capita healthcare spending, and the launch of technologically advanced products in the market. Dental implant placement is one of the preferred types of treatment for missing teeth. Prevalence of edentulism is high among the elderly age group. Hence, demographic changes in the form of a rapidly aging population are likely to drive the growth of the market.

According to the BMJ Journals, in 2021, globally, the prevalence of edentulism is around 12% among adults in low and middle-income countries. Thus, the demand for these products is projected to grow due to increasing prevalence of edentulism, which is projected to boost the market growth. Additionally, there are significant innovations in terms of material quality tooth implants among patients. Moreover, the rise in prevalence of other oral diseases, such as dental caries, periodontal diseases, and tooth decay, is likely to fuel the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Advantages Provided by Implants over Other Methods to Increase the Adoption Rate during the Forecast Period

Dental implants can be considered the prodigy in tooth replacement technology, with the help of a unique system that anchors a natural-looking tooth in the open space forming the missing tooth. Moreover, multiple implants can be used to replace more than one tooth, making it a versatile teeth replacement solution. Hence, significant benefits associated with these implants over other tooth-replacement methods, is one of the prominent growth drivers of the global market across the forecast timeframe.

These implants are designed to look like natural teeth. Titanium implant has great biocompatibility with the bone to fuse with living bone and forms a solid attachment with the bone in the jaw over the course of several months. These implants are made from high-quality titanium or zirconium material that can last for a lifetime, while bridgework and removable dentures may need to be replaced over time. Dental implant fuses with the jawbone, supporting the bone to continue to stay healthy and rebuild itself, which won’t happen with any other teeth replacement method.

Additionally, an increasing number of research surveys and awareness campaigns initiated to understand and strategize options for better accessibility of these implants in the developing economies is another significant factor boosting the product demand.

  • For instance, in September 2020, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) celebrated ‘Dental Implant Awareness Month’, which was for increasing awareness about these implants to be used as replacements for missing teeth. AAID launched a campaign with articles and videos showing reasons why implants are the perfect option for teeth replacement.


High Cost of Implants Procedures to Restrict Market Growth

Dental implant procedures are expensive and dependent on multiple factors such as type of dental implant, nature of implant material, design of the implant, and the number of teeth to be replaced with the implant.

  • For instance, as per published articles, in India, the overall cost of a full mouth dental implant could vary from USD 6,500 to USD 10,500. Hence, such a high price of dental implants is projected to hamper the industry growth in the developing economies during the forecast period.

The developing and underdeveloped countries are struggling to get access to proper dental facilities and dentists. Moreover, there is limited awareness of dental disorders and available treatment options. The economic status of these countries limits the spending on dental treatments. These factors are likely to restrict the implants growth. 


By Material Analysis

High Biocompatibility of Titanium Implant to Dominate the Market

The titanium segment is expected to hold a major share in the market. This is attributed to the suitability to almost all the procedures, non-allergic nature, and biocompatibility of the titanium implants with the bones. Additionally, the high success rate of titanium implants and lower costs as compared to other implants are projected to support the market growth during the forecast period.

  • For instance, according to the DENTA Vacation, in 2020, the average cost of titanium implants in the U.S. is around USD 5,000 whereas the cost of zirconium implants in the U.S. is around USD 6,000. Thus, the lower cost of titanium implants as compared to the others is the major factor contributing to the dominance of the segment.

Other implant materials include zirconium and alloys made by mixing the titanium with other materials. According to the data published by NCBI, the construction of endosseous implant devices, titanium, and its alloys has become well-accepted and can be considered the choice materials.

By Design Analysis

Tapered Implant Segment to Showcase Considerable Growth

In terms of design, the market has been categorized into tapered implants and parallel walled implants.

Among them, the tapered implants segment held the leading share of the market. Tapered wall implants are ideal for immediate placement, well designed for narrow gaps with root proximity of adjacent teeth. These benefits make them a popular choice of treatment after immediate extraction of the teeth. These implants offer better stability in softer bones. The tapered-screw implant design provides adequate stability as it creates pressure on cortical bone in areas of reduced bone quality. Thus, the adoption of tapered implants is increasing in the market during the forecast period.

Parallel walled implants achieve greater stability, and thus are likely to continue to grow during the forecast period. As per various clinical researches, it is proven that parallel implants are not considered as the safest quality of implants for poor-quality jaw bone surgeries. Hence, the segment experienced limited market share as well as sluggish growth over the forecast period.
