The global dental implant and prosthetics market was valued at $ 6,781.7 million in 2011 and is expected to reach $10,562.2 million by 2016, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.3% from 2011 to 2016. These findings were published in “Dental Implants & Prosthetics Market (Artificial Teeth, Dentures, Crowns & Bridges) Current Trends, Opportunities & Global Forecasts to 2016,” a new report from MarketResearch.com.

Europe is leading the global dental implant market with the largest share (41%), at an estimated $1,675.1 million in 2011. The worldwide market offers tremendous growth potential, mainly due to the increasing demand, purchasing power, and consumer acceptance of advanced dental technologies in developing Asian and South American nations and. The trend toward minimally invasive surgical procedures forms another key factor driving the growth of the dental implants market, as these preclude the pain, infection, and other side effects associated with traditional dental procedures.

The report analyzes the dental implants market by material and procedures. Based on the material used, dental implants are segmented as titanium implants and zirconia implants. Titanium implants are further classified on the basis of stages involved in surgery (single stage and two stage) and type of connectors (external hexagonal, internal hexagonal, and internal octagonal).

By procedure, dental implants are segmented as root-form dental implants and plate-form dental implants. Among the two types, root-form dental implants are the most prolifically used, due to durability and high success rate, compared to the other types of implants.

The introduction of technologies such as CAD/CAM has improved dentistry procedures. This has significantly boosted market growth for dental prosthetics, along with the number of options it gives patients. Ceramic crowns offer better esthetics, while metal-fused ceramic crowns offer greater strength. Crowns are also available in gold and other metal alloys.
