Future of Global Dental Implant Abutment Systems Market : 2017 - 2025

Press Release   •   Feb 09, 2017 23:39 EST

Dental implants therapy continues to be one of the most promising therapy in replacing missed teeth. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry estimates that’s, currently 3 million of Americans are implanted with dental implants and the number is growing by 500,000 a year. A dental abutment is a connector device which is comprised of a base that adapted to mount a dental implant to connect the implant with the replacement teeth. From there the crown is placed over the abutment. In case of two-piece dental implants the abutment is cemented on the crown while in case of a single or one piece implant the dental implant and abutment is fused together and comes as a single piece implant. Dental implants abutments are used to attach a crown, bridge, remove or removable denture to the implant fixtures. There are two classes of dental abutment systems, prefabricated and custom made. Prefabricated dental abutments are available in ranges of size and shapes and the one which is best fitted is selected during the patient’s surgery. Custom made dental implants abutment systems are made according to the patients fit and are fabricated at the dental laboratory with the help of the implants impression which is made with the adjacent teeth and gingiva. The dental implant abutment systems are made up of different materials such as titanium, gold alloy, surgical stainless steel, gold, and zirconia. However, currently available dental implants abutment systems are made from zirconia, a white ceramic dental implant abutment providing a highly desirable dental abutment option. These abutment systems are used to better compliment the aesthetics of the dental implant restoration. However, such abutments needs to be used with care as there compressive strength is somewhere around that of other metals including titanium and gold.

Presently, a number of manufacturers are focusing on providing custom fit dental implant abutment systems according to the patients need. This is expected to reflect positive growth in the global dental implant abutment systems market. Furthermore, availability of wide range of options in prefabricated dental implants product category is expected to make easy for dental surgeons to choose the best fitted dental implant abutment system. This is expected to fuel the market revenue for prefabricated dental implants abutment systems over the forecast period. Increasing number of dental implants procedures worldwide is expected to create demand for abutment systems in dentistry. Advent of multifunctional dental abutment systems in the market will further increase the market revenue for dental implants abutment systems globally. Problems associated with the abutment fixation, screw loosening, rotational misfit, inadequate microbial sealing may result in poor dental implant fixation. High cost of two piece dental implant abutment system and limited prosthetic options available in case of single piece implant is expected to result in declining revenues in dental implants abutment systems market over the forecast period.

The global market for dental implant abutment systems is segmented on basis of product type, type of connection, material type, end user and geography:

  • Segmentation by Product Type
    • Stock/Prefabricated Abutment Systems
    • Custom Abutment Systems
  • Segmentation by Type of Connection
    • External Hex Connections
    • Internal Connection
  • Segmentation by Material Type
    • Titanium
    • Gold
    • Zirconia
    • Stainless Steel
  • Segmentation by End User
    • Hospitals
    • Dental Clinics
    • Ambulatory Surgical Centers

Increasing efforts by dental abutment manufacturers to deliver abutment systems with shape memory material called as Nitinol, a nickel titanium providing cement free and screw free dental abutment solutions is expected to create huge market revenue potential in the global dental implant abutment systems market.

By product type, the global market for dental implant abutment systems has been classified into, stock/prefabricated abutment systems and custom abutment systems. Stock/prefabricated abutment systems product type segment is highly preferred product type segment owing to availability of wide range of abutment systems in this product type category.

By type of connection, the global market for dental implant abutment systems has been classified into external hex connection and internal connection. Better esthetic, better joint strength and improved microbial seal is expected to create higher revenues for internal connection sub-segment in global dental implant abutment systems.

On the basis of material type the global dental implant abutment systems market is segmented into, titanium, gold, stainless steel and zirconia. Zirconia material type sub segment is expected to be opportunistic in global dental implant abutment systems market.

On the basis of end user the global dental implant abutment systems market is segmented into, hospital dental clinics and ambulatory surgical centers.

On the basis of regional presence, global Dental Implant Abutment Systems market is segmented into five key regions viz. North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America followed by Europe will continue to dominate the global dental implant abutment systems market attributed to growing number of adult as well as pediatric population with dental problems such as, tooth decay and dental caries leading to more number of dental implant procedures. Furthermore, increasing rate of dental implants procedures among older group is also expected to result in higher demand for abutment systems globally over the forecast period. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region in global dental implant abutment systems market.
