In the early times when only metal posts were available, studies proved that parallel metal prefabricated posts and screw type metal posts offer superior retention than tapered metal posts, in vitro. However, the use of parallel posts require removal of more dentin to fit into place. At present, dental fiberglass posts are among the most popularly used dental posts, which are available in both shapes parallel as well as tapered. The tapered designs are beneficial since they offer benefits of conserving the dentin and reduce the stress without compromising the strength.

Furthermore, most dental equipment used to access the root are tapered in shape. For instance, endo files, reamers, gutta-percha, and paper points are all tapered in design. As a result, it would seem reasonable that tapered dental fiberglass posts are preferred over other types. Another most common issue of the parallel post is lack of venting.

Parallel posts are made to maintain proximity to sidewalls, from the time of penetration to the complete seating thereby functioning a piston like function. Thus, without a vent for the cement or air at the end of the inserted post, the post floats back when pressure is released. Unlike the parallel posts, tapered posts have the ability to self-vent due to its design. Such benefits increase the traction of tapered dental fiberglass posts for various endodontic procedures.

Consolidation of the Dental Industry Booming the Demand for Dental Fiberglass Posts

Players in the dental consumables market, including manufacturers of dental fiberglass posts are actively acquiring other companies to expand their product portfolio and service offerings. Acquisition of local players has resulted in consolidation of the dental fiberglass posts market. Acquisitions is not only a trend among the manufacturers of dental fiberglass posts but also among the suppliers and distributors of the dental fiberglass posts.

For instance, Henry Schein Inc., a leading distributor of dental supplies, such as dental fiberglass posts, has made a number of acquisitions in the last few years across different dental industry verticals, including five companies acquired from Arseus NV in Europe. Similarly, Dentsply’s merger with Sirona Dental Systems in 2016 is counted among the most significant merger activity in the dental industry in the last few years. Thus, the consolidation of the dental industry offers a number of opportunities for players offering dental fiberglass posts.

Effect of Dental Expenditure and Economy

In most countries across the world, costs attributed to dental care services are borne by the patients as out-of-pocket cost. Furthermore, most dental policies do not cover all dental services. Changes in disposable income typically have a significant bearing on availing dental care services, thereby impacting the dental consumables markets such as dental fiberglass posts market throughout the forecast period. For instance, during the period of economic slowdown in Europe and the U.S., many companies operating in dental consumables market including dental fiberglass posts experienced downturn in sales of dental consumables during 2008 to 2011.

As the economy slowly started to recover, companies again started to witness slow but continuous growth in the sales of dental consumables. Furthermore, rising earning potential in the middle-class population is expected to drive the spending on dental care and hence, boost the dental fiberglass posts market in the forecast period.

Increasing Dental Tourism and Import-export Activities for Dental Materials and Consumables

One of the most important and rapidly expanding medical tourism segment is that of dental tourism. Rise in in-bound dental tourism of a country can have a significantly positive impact on the dental fiberglass posts market in the region. For instance, in Western Europe, Hungary is becoming a capital for dental tourism. This is primarily due to the substantially low cost of dental care services in this country.

The cost of dental care in Hungary is about 40-75% less when compared to the U.S. and other developed countries. Rise in import of dental supplies and consumables in Poland and Russia will boost the growth of the dental fiberglass posts market in Eastern Europe and other similar nations. Such evolution in trade practices are expected to significantly push the growth of the dental fiberglass posts market.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

The analyst concludes that the dental fiberglass posts market is expected to grow at a moderate rate, with North America and Europe holding well over half of the global demand for dental fiberglass posts market. Increasing focus on physical appearance has led to growing number of aesthetic dental procedures in countries such as the U.S., Brazil, and Australia. The dental fiberglass posts market is expected to have a robust growth over the forecast period in emerging countries like India, South Korea, and Indonesia due to increasing awareness towards oral diseases and rising patient pool.

The combination type of dental fiberglass posts are expected to create the next generation benchmark for dental fiberglass posts, thus creating lucrative opportunities for growth in the dental fiberglass posts market. However, limited reimbursement for dental procedures, and high cost of dental procedures may hinder the growth of the dental fiberglass posts market through the forecast period, 2019-2029.
