Dental Prosthetics Market: Manufacturers Using CAD/CAM Technology to Manufacture Crowns Likely to Lead the Market
The global dental implants and prosthetics market was majorly dominated by Europe in 2012. By 2018, Europe will continue to drive and dominate the dental implants and prosthetics market. The market share of this region will decrease slightly to 40.1%, primarily due to the increase in demand for dental implants and prosthetics in Asia-Pacific and in some Latin American countries. The growth of the Asian market will primarily be driven by China and India. This is mainly attributed to the rising disposable incomes, increasing focus of major players, and the ongoing development of these economies. The North American market is expected to grow at a higher pace than Europe mainly due to lower penetration and the high adoption rate of advanced dentistry.
By 2018, titanium implants and crowns and bridges will continue to drive and dominate the dental implants and prosthetics market. Furthermore, all-ceramics crowns and bridges are also expected to drive the growth of the crowns and bridges market. The introduction of the CAD/CAM technology has drastically reduced the treatment time. Crowns designed through CAD/CAM often fit better when compared to traditionally designed crowns and they are also available at lower costs than traditional crowns. These factors will drive the market for all-ceramic crowns across the world.
There is an increasing demand for computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) all-ceramic restorations due to their superior aesthetics and improved fitting. The CAD/CAM technology has the potential to lower production costs. More than 20% of all prosthetic elements were produced by CAD/CAM in 2012. Though the majority of prosthetic elements are still made manually, the use of CAD/CAM prosthetic elements continues to increase due to the advantages of the CAD/CAM technology over conventional technologies. Therefore, this is an exciting market for dental players to invest in.
