Restorative Materials Market: Introduction
In terms of value, the global & Asia Pacific restorative materials market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2023 to 2030. Rise in demand for dental treatment is boosting the dental consumables segment. Dental consumables include dental restoratives, orthodontics, endodontics, and infection control products. The expansion of the dental consumables segment is driving the global restorative materials market. The restorative materials market is also expanding due to the rise in aging population, growth in number of dental clinics, increase in demand for cosmetic dentistry, and advancements in dental treatments.
The increase in dental tourism across the globe is driving the demand for dental materials. Asia Pacific is emerging as a global leader in dental tourism. Countries in the region such as India, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Taiwan, and South Korea are emerging as preferred destinations for dental tourism. Vietnam witnessed a threefold increase (5 million to 15 million) in the number of foreign tourists during 2010 to 2018.
Rise in Regulations on Usage of Amalgam and Lack of Dental Insurance to Hamper Restorative Materials Market
Concerns over mercury pollution due to the usage of amalgam are adversely affecting the demand for dental amalgam. Several countries in North America and Europe have banned the usage of dental amalgam in children under 15 years and pregnant women. Furthermore, the preference for esthetic restorative materials has hampered the demand for amalgam. The ban on amalgam has affected the overall expenditure on dental treatment in developing economies due to the rise in costs of restorative materials. The ban on amalgam is estimated to lead to an increase in the average price of restoration materials, as amalgam is one of the low-priced materials available for dental restoration. The dental market in developing countries is price sensitive. People cannot afford expensive treatments. They prefer inexpensive materials. This is hampering the global restorative materials market.
