Growing preference for procedures that offer improved aesthetic results will help drive the dental implant market from 2010-2013, according to Millennium Research Group
WALTHAM, Mass., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Millennium Research Group's (MRG's) new US Markets for Dental Implants 2009 report, although the current economic crisis is resulting in lower procedural growth in the short term, the US dental implant market will recover after 2010 and exceed $1 billion by 2013.
As a result of the slumping economy, patients are less likely to invest in dental implant procedures, and some are opting instead for less expensive alternatives, such as crowns and bridges. Because of this retrenchment, dentists are now buying smaller volumes of dental implant products, reflecting the decline in appointments. With economic recovery expected to begin in 2010, however, market growth will be stimulated by preference for minimally invasive procedures that offer improved aesthetic results and boast shorter treatment lengths. Renewed procedure growth will be facilitated through the use of custom-milled abutments, two-piece small-diameter dental implants, and guided surgery technology.
"The growing population of general practitioners (GPs) placing dental implants will also lead to steady market growth, particularly with small-diameter implants that are easier to place and less invasive," says Poonam Jassi, Senior Analyst at MRG. "More GPs will learn to place dental implants because of the profit potential compared to alternative treatments, driving this market into 2013."
