Polymerization is a process of creating polymers from monomers. Dental Polymerizers are the machines used for carrying out polymerization process in order to create resins or sealing agents which are used in dental procedures. Dental Polymerizers are used to make heat cure resins, cold cure resins, filling material, orthodontic retainers, acrylic appliances, dentures, acrylic tray among others.
During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, dentists, patients and auxiliaries constitute high risk group due to chances of cross infection. Thus there are in general sluggishness in the dental market in general which in turn would have certain negative impact on the global market of dental polymerizers.
The increasing number of incidences of various dental conditions worldwide is a major driver in the growth of the global market of dental polymerizers. Collaboration between various governments and industry to increase awareness about dental health will encourage general population to get dental treatment which most of the times is not considered significant enough and hence avoided. This awareness generation will certainly drive the global market of dental polymerizers positively for growth. The low cost of the dental polymerizers and ease of using it will further contribute in developing the global market of dental polymerizers. Growth in geriatric population in major developed economies who are the largest segment of consumers needing dentures will further incentivise the progress of the global market of dental polymerizers. Policy level initiatives by the governments of the developed world like Dental reform act of 2015 by the government of the USA will additionally promote the global market of dental polymerizers. On the other hand, the major barrier for the global market of dental polymerizers could be comparative unawareness among the population of third world countries. Moreover, high costs involved particularly with the dental procedures may hamper the growth of the global market of dental polymerizers. Lack of reimbursements from the government coupled with low spending capacities of the population in the developing world could be another factor hindering growth of the global market of dental polymerizers.
The global market of dental polymerizers is segmented based on the product type, end user type and region.
By product type, the global market of dental polymerizers can be segmented as:
By end user type, the global market of dental polymerizers can be segmented as:
As per the data given by World Health Organisation the global geriatric population is estimated to be 1.4 billion by the end of 2030 who stand to be potentially the largest target segment for the global market of dental polymerizers. As per WHO estimates 2.3 billion global population suffers from dental caries of permanent teeth while the number is at staggering 530 million for children suffering from dental caries of primary teeth (milk teeth). Based on the product type, manual segment is expected to be fastest growing in the global market of dental polymerizers owing to its cost effectiveness and ease of using. Based on end user type, dental speciality clinics in the global market of dental polymerizers are poised to grow better due to better accessibility to the patients.
North America is estimated to dominate the global market of dental polymerizers since the prevalence of dental caries is 45.8% in the age group of 2-19 years of age together with total geriatric population of 105 million by the end of 2030. Europe can be expected to be the next dominating market in the global market of dental polymerizers owing to it having large geriatric population of 217 million by the end of 2030. South Asia will be lucrative segment in the global market of dental polymerizers with 39 to 73.7% of children suffering from dental caries while in east Asia this percentage would be ranging from 40% to 97%. Middle East can also be expected to be an attractive destination for the global market of dental polymerizers as prevalence of dental caries among children in the region account for more than 80%.
The key players operating the global market of dental polymerizers are Wassermann, Mestra, Sirio, Reitel, Shofu, Rolence, Technodent, Zhermack, Geosoft Dent, Ivoclar Vivadent among others.
