Dental Filling Material Market 2019 | Size, Merger and Share | By Products, Applications and End Users Overview Forecast to 2026

A dental filling is a type of surgical procedure that includes repair of minimal to moderate tooth fractures, tooth decay, and other damages of the teeth. A dental filling is gaining traction in the market owing to the rising number of enamel loss cases around the globe. A dental filling helps smoothen the dental surface and also remove the cracked or broken teeth. Gold fillings, composite (plastic) resins, amalgam (silver), and porcelain fillings are some of the types of fillings. The growing prevalence of dental disorders is the major factor driving the demand for dental filling products. According to WHO, worldwide, around 60% to 90% of children and 100% of adults are suffering from dental cavities, and this number is expected to increase in the near future. Also, rising demand for cosmetic dentistry as well as product advancements in tooth filling products is projected to drive the dental filling material market.

Rising occurrence of the dental disease especially in Asian countries such as China and India is expected to foster the market growthmaterial market

Dental filling material market size is one of the largest in the dental industry and shows high potential for further growth. Demand for dental filling products is expected to increase in the near future, and this can be credited to rising awareness regarding oral hygiene and improving personal aesthetic appeal.

The economic downturn impacted the dental filling material markets and resulted in fewer patients visiting the dentist between 2008 and 2011; however, the market is gaining traction on the back of economic revival worldwide.

Growing healthcare expenditure, increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry, and growing awareness regarding dental care will further boost the demand for dental filling materials. The glass ionomer segment is projected to grow at lucrative CAGR during the forecast period (2016–2024).  The amalgam/silver fillings segment is also expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period, owing to its wide application in the cosmetic dentistry.

The ceramic material segment accounted for major revenue share in the market, owing to high durability and extensive use for the treatment of dental cavities.

The dental filling materials market is fragmented with many global and local vendors, thus there is high competition amongst companies to gain maximum revenue share in the industry. Players such as Coltene Whaledent Dentsply, DMG Chemisch-Pharmazeutische Fabrik, GC America, SDI Limited, Kerr Corporation, Pentron Clinical Technologies, DenMat Holdings, Kuraray Noritake Dental, and Kettenbach are highly engage in advanced technology to produce sophisticated, performance-driven, and aesthetic dental filling.
