The report forecasts the global dental prosthetics market to grow at a CAGR of 6.55% during the period 2016-2020.
The report has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
A trend which is propelling market growth is the number of technological advances in the field of dental prosthetics. Electron microscopy, 3D imaging, and virtual reality training in labs are some of the advances in dental prosthetic technology being witnessed in the market. The use of implant-supported fixed hybrid prosthesis is another trend that is likely to gain popularity in many European countries during the forecast period.
According to the report, a key growth driver is the increased adoption of CAD/CAM technology. Advances in CAD/CAM technology have enabled vendors to produce dental prosthetics that are capable of milling a variety of designs based of the type of material, size, and color. The main advantage of CAD/CAM technology is that it allows customization of dental prosthetics according to the patient's oral anatomy and supports the correct placement of implants, which results in the shortening of the recovery period and makes the procedure less invasive.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the high cost of dental prosthetics.
