Due to the pandemic, several nations closed their dental practices except for emergency visits. The decline in cash flow in dental clinics accompanied by reduced demand for dental prosthetics impacted the capital equipment and materials markets. In general, the effects of the pandemic on the dental laboratories market are anticipated to differ by market segment.

Various governments have taken different initiatives to make people aware of oral healthcare, which has resulted in faster recovery from dental problems. The governments have also presented reimbursement schemes for dental treatment, which has emerged as a primary factor driving the growth of the dental laboratories market. In addition, the growing number of technological advancements in dental implants and their solutions utilized for restorative dentistry has also driven the growth of the dental laboratories market.

Enhancements in technology used for dental purposes

There is an upsurge witnessed in the demand for restorative and cosmetic dentistry due to improvements in technology and materials, which has resulted in the huge demand for dental laboratory technicians. In addition, technicians have become independent due to advancements in technology as there is no need to work with close supervision. Technicians also often feel satisfied with the results of taking an entire project from start to finish.

Market Restraining Factor:

Also, the equipment and latest devices used while performing treatment are expensive. Thus, for the setup of a new dental laboratory, there is a need of spending a huge amount on purchasing materials, equipment, devices, and the latest technologies. In addition, the lack of proper reimbursement, intense competition in the market, stringent regulations for patient safety, and limited geographical reach are the major factors that may hinder the growth of the dental laboratories market.

In diagnostic and surgical procedures, dental lasers find their huge application.

Regional Outlook

Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa.
