Dental implants are titanium-made artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted into the jawbone beneath the gum line to replace missing teeth. Dental implants have many advantages over dentures as they do not require any gum surgery and provide a more natural look and feel. They help in retaining facial structures and thus boost self-esteem and confidence levels. With rising disposable income and focus on aesthetic appeal, demand for dental implants is increasing significantly.
The global dental implants market is estimated to be valued at US$ 6598.08 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 2.8% over the forecast period 2024 to 2030.
Key players operating in the dental implants market are East Penn Manufacturing Co. Inc., Exide Technologies, Johnson Controls International plc, MasterVolt BV, Optima Batteries Inc., Saft Groupe SA, Trojan Battery Company, VARTA AG, Vetus BV, Victron Energy BV, Yuasa Battery Inc., Leoch Battery Corporation, and MK Battery.
Technological advancement is boosting demand. Key players are developing implants with more realistic tooth-like appearance and shorter healing time to gain more customers. 3D printing technologies are helping create custom dental structures according to individual requirements.
Growing aging population suffering from tooth loss and rise in incidence of periodontal diseases are increasing demand for dental implant procedures globally.
1. All-on-4 dental implant procedure gaining popularity: It involves placing four dental implants to hold a fixed bridge in the mouth without bone grafting and allows for fixed teeth replacement in a single visit.
2. Zirconia dental implants gaining acceptance: Zirconia material matches tooth color better than titanium and zirconia dental crowns provide an aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Impact of COVID-19 on Dental Implants Market Growth
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the dental implants market growth globally. Many dental clinics were temporarily closed due to lockdowns imposed to curb the spread of the virus. This led to a decline in dental procedures and implant placements. The postponed treatments impacted the market revenues in 2020. However, the demand is projected to rebound in 2021 as dental clinics reopen fully with appropriate COVID-19 protocols. The pandemic has accelerated the digitization of dental clinics as dental professionals adopted teledentistry for remote consultation. 3D printing technology is also expected to play a crucial role in simplifying complex implant planning, designing and guided surgeries. The post COVID scenario could see an increased focus on oral health as people want to maintain their dental health and hygiene levels. The market players will have to ensure adequate protective measures and modernize operations to gain patients’ trust.
Geographical Regions with Highest Dental Implants Market Value
North America accounts for the largest share of the dental implants market in terms of value. This is attributed to factors such as presence of advanced dental clinical facilities, rising incidence of tooth loss associated with aging population and increasing dental expenditure levels in the region. Countries like the United States displays high demand for bone grafts and membrane products used with dental implants. Europe captures the second largest market value due to growing patient awareness about oral aesthetics and technological innovations introduced by leading players located in Germany, Italy and France.
Fastest Growing Regional Market for Dental Implants
The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest growth in the dental implants market over the forecast period. This is owing to rising income levels, growing medical tourism industry and expanding patient pool of the elderly demographic in China and India. Additionally, improving access to dental care and increasing healthcare expenditures are fueling the demand for implants and associated bone grafting materials across Asia Pacific countries. Countries like China, Japan and South Korea are anticipated to drive major revenues for market participants in the future.
