Dental membranes and bone graft substitutes are used in dental procedures such as periodontal tissue regeneration, bone grafting, socket preservation, and guided bone regeneration. Dental membranes act as a barrier and helps guide tissue regeneration and bone formation.
The global dental membranes and bone graft substitutes market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1,045.3 million in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 9.4% during the forecast period (2022-2030).
Driving factor – The global dental membrane and bone graft substitute market is expected to witness significant growth owing to the increasing number of dental surgeries such as dental implants, periodontal regeneration, and socket preservation. According to the American Dental Association, the number of dental implant surgeries increased from 3.2 million in 2016 to 3.4 million in 2018 in the US.
Second driver – Advancements in material technology have led to the development of advanced resorbable and non-resorbable membranes and bone grafts made from polymers, ceramics, and organic materials. This has increased the success rate of various dental procedures and reduced healing time.
Dental Membrane And Bone Graft Substitute Market Drivers
Increased prevalence of dental diseases
The global dental membrane and bone graft substitute market is primarily driven by the rising prevalence of dental diseases across the world. Periodontal diseases are one of the most common dental diseases affecting people. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), severe periodontal disease affects around 15-20% of the global population. The increasing consumption of sugary foods and drinks has led to a rise in dental caries. With growing awareness and improved access to dental care, more people are now opting for various bone grafting and tissue regeneration procedures to treat dental diseases. This high disease prevalence is expected to boost the demand for dental membrane and bone graft substitute products over the coming years.
Advancements in biomaterial technology
Advancements in biomaterial technology used for producing bone graft substitutes and dental membranes have expanded their applications scope. New products with enhanced performance characteristics such as osteoconductivity, osteoinductivity and biodegradability are introduced in the market. The development of resorbable membranes and bone substitutes with properties mimicking the natural bone structure has improved clinical outcomes of various dental reconstructive procedures. Novel technologies such as 3D printing and tissue engineering are also being used to develop customized bone graft substitutes. The availability of improved biomaterial-based solutions is fueling their adoption rate among dental surgeons and propelling the market growth.
Dental Membrane And Bone Graft Substitute Market Restrain
High cost of bone grafting procedures
The high cost of dental bone grafting and membrane procedures poses a major growth challenge for the market. Dental bone grafting often requires using combination of bone graft substitutes, dental membranes along with other surgical tools and equipment which makes the overall treatment cost very high. The membrane and graft material alone have significant price tags which discourage their widespread usage. This is a major restraint especially in price-sensitive developing regions where people have limited access to dental insurance. The out-of-pocket expenses incurred on such procedures thus restricts the market’s reach to only high-income groups who can afford such specialized treatments.
Dental Membrane And Bone Graft Substitute Market Opportunity
Growing medical tourism in emerging markets
Rising medical tourism in emerging markets such as India, Thailand, Mexico and Brazil presents significant opportunities for players in the dental membrane and bone graft substitute market. These countries offer quality dental care at very affordable prices compared to developed nations. The availability of internationally trained dentists, lower treatment costs and absence of long wait times are attracting many patients from overseas for various dental procedures including bone grafting. This growing medical tourism especially benefits the market by exposing more foreign patients to advanced dental bone regeneration techniques and materials. Companies can tap into the huge untapped demand potential in fast emerging medical tourism destinations to boost sales revenues in the coming years.
Dental Membrane And Bone Graft Substitute Market Trends
Increased utilization of bioactive bone graft substitutes
One of the key evolving trends in the dental membrane and bone graft substitute market is the growing favoring of bioactive bone grafting materials over the conventional bone graft substitutes. Bioactive bone graft materials have incorporated properties allowing them to stimulate faster new bone formation in addition to traditionally acting as a scaffold. Their ability to induce osteogenesis gives better clinical outcomes. New bioactive materials mimicking the native bone composition using nanotechnologies are gaining popularity. Research is also being conducted to develop bone graft substitutes with osteoinductive and osteoconductive properties together. The increasing adoption of next-gen bioactive bone substitutes is expected to power the dental membrane and bone graft substitutes market forward.
