Dental Implants Market to Grow 6% Annually Through 2015

ROCKVILLE, MD--(Marketwire - October 11, 2010) - has announced the addition of MarketsandMarkets's new report "Global Dental Implants Market (2010-2015)" to their collection of Medical Devices market reports. For more information, visit

Dental implants already hold a substantial 18% share of the global dental device market; and are also expected to have one of the highest growth rates amongst all dental device submarkets. This is primarily because dental implants offer an effective treatment for edentulism and because of the rising demand for cosmetic dentistry worldwide across all age groups.

The global dental implants market is expected to grow from $3.2 billion in 2010 to $4.2 billion in 2015 at a CAGR of 6% from 2010 to 2015. Europe currently forms the world's largest market for dental implants with a 42% market share, and is also expected to have the highest CAGR 7.0% from 2010 to 2015.

While the lack of consumer awareness in developing economies may hinder market growth, industry players still have immense growth opportunities as merely 2% to 3% of the global edentulous population has already received dental implant treatment so far.

The aging baby-boomer population in developed nations offers an especially high-growth opportunity, as this consumer segment is characterized by high disposable income, and also by an increased need for dental care due to longer life expectancy.

Key questions answered by the report include:

  • Which are the high-growth segments/cash cows and how is the market segmented in terms of materials and procedure?
  • What are market estimates and forecasts; which markets are doing well and which are not?
  • Where are the gaps and opportunities; what is driving the market?
  • Which are the key playing fields? Which are the winning edge imperatives?
  • How is the competitive outlook; who are the main players in each of the segments; what are the key selling products; what are their strategic directives, operational strengths and product pipelines? Who is doing what?
