European universal bonding agents market expected to grow to over 18% by
VANCOUVER, Sept. 8, 2014 /CNW/ - According to a new report series by
iData Research [www.idataresearch.com], the leading global authority in medical device, dental and
pharmaceutical market research, the European Market for Dental Materials is expected reach over $2 billion by 2020. This market is segmented
into dental cements, impression materials, direct restorative
materials, bonding agents, core build-up materials and dental local
anesthetics. "Patients and dentists' expectations have largely fueled
the high levels of investment in research and development for improved,
more efficient and easy-to-use products, particularly within the dental
bonding agents market," says Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData.
The introduction of newer generation dental bonding agents has
significantly improved application and has reduced the number of steps
involved in tooth preparation. There has been a trend away from
'conventional' bonding agents towards newer, less time-consuming
options such as self-etch and now even universal bonding agents. The
introduction of universal bonding agents in 2012 has significantly
changed the adhesive process. Universal bonding agent eliminates the
need to purchase multiple adhesive systems thus eliminating the need
for other products such as silane or desensitizers and guarantees the
freshness of the adhesive.
This shift has taken effect within Germany, Austria, Benelux,
Scandinavia and Switzerland. Universal bonding agents have not been
adopted in the more cost-sensitive regions such as Iberia, the U.K.,
Italy Spain and France. The universality of the product caters to both
self- and total-etch users, and once the full benefits of its use are
recognized, growth is expected to be dramatic. CAGR is expected to
increase to over 19% by 2020.
The dominant universal adhesive on the market is 3ESPE's Scotchbond™ Universal Adhesive, with its main purpose to prevent postoperative sensitivity. Other key
competitors in the total European dental material market include
DENTSPLY, GC Europe, Heraeus Kulzer, Ivoclar Vivadent and Kuraray.
Other key findings from the European Market for Dental Materials Report
The impression material market will be threatened by the introduction
and adoption of intraoral scanners. This threat has varying
implications for the different material segments. Intraoral scanners
replace the necessity of impression materials and will ultimately cause
the impression material market to contract.
Local injection anesthetic market value was approximately eight times
that of the topical injection market. Topical solutions are not
comparable in terms of the depth and duration of pain relief and
therefore are approximately half the price of injections. Competitors
and products leading this market include Septodont's Septanest®, DENTSPLY's Oraqix® and 3M ESPE Ubistesin™.
