"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The global dental implants market size was valued at USD 4.15 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 4.42 billion in 2023 to USD 6.95 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period.
Dental implants are devices used to support dental prosthetics/false teeth. The increasing prevalence of oral disorders globally is surging the demand for these implants. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), people suffering from oral diseases in 2020 were 3.5 billion. Thus, the increasing incidence of oral diseases across the world is anticipated to boost the demand for these implants during the forecast period. The demand for tooth implants is expected to grow rapidly due to their advantages over other tooth replacement methods, such as safety, effectiveness, natural-looking teeth, and durability.
The growing awareness about oral health, rise in disposable incomes, and increasing importance of aesthetic restoration of tooth implants are factors poised to boost the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Postponed Elective Procedures amid COVID-19 Led to Revenue Decline
The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic impeded the demand for these implants due to a decline in elective surgical procedures. Dental care was considered an emergency care service in major countries, such as the U.S. during the COVID-19 pandemic. The reducing number of patient visits to emergency care, rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus, and government regulations from several countries that postponed elective surgeries were some of the factors that impacted the market growth during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The market players witnessed a significant drop in their revenues during 2020. For instance, Institut Straumann AG registered a decrease of around -5.4% in total revenues generated in 2020 as compared to 2019. The company’s dental implant solution segment witnessed a major decline of -14.5% in 2020. Additionally, Envista recorded a reduction of around -15.6% in its total revenues.
However, during 2021, patient visits to dental clinics and hospitals increased as the regulations imposed by governments were relaxed. In 2021, the demand for implants was high due to increase in patient visits and the reopening of all the facilities in various geographies. This scenario increased the revenues of key companies in the market. The revenue generated by Envista in 2021 increased by 30.1% as compared to its revenue in 2020. Therefore, the reopening of healthcare services had a positive impact on the demand for the implants in 2021. The market is expected to witness a steady pace in terms of market growth from 2022 onwards.

Growing Adoption of Digital Implant Dentistry to Augment Market Growth
Penetration of digital technologies in the dental industry is booming these days with various uses in diagnosis, implant designing & manufacturing, placement, and others. Implant procedure is one of the key aspects of dentistry that has been enhanced by digital technology.
Dental scanners, CAD/CAM machines, CBCT, and 3D printing technology have been employed in dental clinics and laboratories, allowing dentists to implement modern dental treatment approaches. The market is expected to witness positive growth owing to this type of modernization of dental practices and the adoption of latest technologies in digital dentistry.
Increasing Prevalence of Dental Disorders to Boost Market Growth
Major factors contributing to the growth of the market include increasing incidence of tooth loss, high demand for aesthetic dentistry, rise in per capita healthcare spending, and launch of technologically advanced products in the market. Dental implant placement is one of the preferred types of treatments for missing teeth. Prevalence of edentulism is high among the elderly age group. Hence, demographic changes in the form of a rapidly aging population are likely to drive the demand for these devices.
According to the BMJ Journals, in 2021, globally, the prevalence of edentulism was around 12% among adults in low and middle-income countries. Thus, the demand for these products is projected to grow due to increasing prevalence of edentulism, which may boost the market growth. Additionally, there are significant innovations in terms of the quality of materials used to make tooth implants. Moreover, the rise in occurrence of other oral diseases, such as dental caries, periodontal diseases, and tooth decay, is likely to fuel the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Advantages Provided by Implants over Other Methods to Increase Adoption Rate during Forecast Period
These implants can be considered the prodigy in tooth replacement technology, with the help of a unique system that anchors a natural-looking tooth in the open space forming the missing tooth. Moreover, multiple implants can be used to replace more than one tooth, making it a versatile teeth replacement solution. Hence, significant benefits associated with these implants over other tooth replacement methods, is predicted to be one of the prominent growth drivers of the market during the forecast timeframe.
These implants are designed to look like natural teeth. A titanium implant, for example, has great biocompatibility as it fuses with a living bone and forms a solid attachment with the bone in the jaw over the course of several months. These implants are made from high-quality titanium or zirconium material that can last for a lifetime, while bridgework and removable dentures may need to be replaced over time. A dental implant fuses with the jawbone, supporting the bone to continue to stay healthy and rebuild itself, which won’t happen with any other teeth replacement method.
Additionally, an increasing number of research surveys and awareness campaigns initiated to understand and strategize options for better accessibility to these implants in the developing economies is another significant factor boosting the product demand.
High Cost of Implant Procedures to Restrict Market Growth
Dental implant procedures are expensive and dependent on multiple factors, such as type of implant, nature of implant material, design of the implant, and number of teeth to be replaced with the implant.
The developing and underdeveloped countries are struggling to get access to proper dental facilities and dentists. Moreover, there is limited awareness of dental disorders and available treatment options. The economic status of these countries limits the spending on dental treatments. These factors are likely to restrict the market growth.
High Biocompatibility of Titanium Implant to Dominate the Market
Based on material, the market is segregated into titanium, zirconium, and others.
The titanium segment is expected to hold a major dental implants market share. This is attributed to the suitability to almost all the procedures, non-allergic nature, and biocompatibility of titanium implants with the bones. Additionally, the high success rate of these implants and lower costs as compared to other implants are projected to support the market growth during the forecast period.
Other implant materials include zirconium and alloys made by mixing titanium with other materials. According to the data published by NCBI, titanium and its alloys have become well-accepted and can be considered key materials in the construction of endosseous implant devices.
Tapered Implant Segment to Showcase Considerable Growth Due to Their Convenience
In terms of design, the market has been categorized into tapered implants and parallel-walled implants.
Among them, the tapered implants segment held the leading share of the market in 2022. Tapered implants are ideal for immediate placement as they are well designed for narrow gaps and teeth that have high root proximity. These benefits make them a popular choice of treatment after immediate tooth extraction. These implants offer better stability in softer bones. The tapered-screw implant design provides adequate stability as it creates pressure on the cortical bone in areas of low bone quality. Thus, the adoption of tapered implants will increase in the market during the forecast period.
Parallel-walled implants can achieve greater stability, and thus this segment is likely to continue to grow during the forecast period. As per various clinical researches, it is proven that parallel implants are not considered the safest for poor-quality jaw bone surgeries. Hence, the segment may capture lesser market share and experience sluggish growth over the forecast period.

The endosteal implants segment held a large market share in 2022. These are the most commonly used types of implants that are placed in the bone. As per the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), endosteal implants are widely used implants in dentistry as they are safe and effective. Moreover, they are the root form implants, which include screw type, cylinder type, or bladed type implants.
Complex and comparatively invasive procedures for using transosteal implants are likely to hinder the growth of the transosteal implants segment during the forecast period.
Strong Presence of Solo Practices has led to the Segment’s Dominance in 2022
In terms of end-user, the market is segmented into solo practices, DSO/group practices, and others.
The solo practices segment dominated the market with a significant share, owing to the high preference given to these practices for dental implant procedures by patients. The availability of specialized dental equipment and skilled dentists is expected to contribute to the segment's growth. The DSO/group practices segment is anticipated to record the highest CAGR during 2023-30 owing to the rising preference of dentists for these practices.
The others segment, which includes settings, such as dental clinics and academic & research institutes, held a comparatively lower market share in 2022.
