The global dental composites market is anticipated to grow, due to changes in diet and lifestyle, and a rapidly growing geriatric population across the globe, leading to an increased incidence of dental caries.

According to a new report published by UnivDatos Markets Insights, the dental composite market was valued at US$25 million in 2020, which is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of around 9% from 2022-2028.

The growth of the dental composites market can be attributed to factors such as rapid technological advancement, increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry and increasing awareness among the population globally about oral care issues are some of the prominent factors contributing to the growth of the market. The higher demand for tooth fillings that have identical colour and structure to the tooth for aesthetic purposes attributes to the growth of the segment.

The growing use of tobacco and smoking has also led to an increase in the prevalence of dental problems, increasing the use of dental composites. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 40% of adults aged 20 to 64 who currently smoke cigarettes have untreated tooth decay. Also, nearly 43% of adults aged 65 or older who currently smoke cigarettes have experienced tooth loss.

The composite market has been categorised into bulk fill composite, universal composite, flowable composite, and others. Among them, the universal composite segment, intended for use in the anterior and posterior areas of the tooth, is expected to have significant growth. This type of composite should produce long-lasting restorations that have the mechanical properties and aesthetics needed for the area. The dental fillings segment is expected to hold a higher compound annual growth rate, which the researchers suggest is due to a rising number of dental procedures like cavities, dental bridges and repair of damaged teeth. For instance, the prevalence of cracked teeth is around 80% in patients over 40 years of age. The incidence of incomplete tooth fracture with vital pulps is 9.7%.

North America is anticipated to grow at a substantial rate during the forecast period. The major factors such as the growing prevalence of oral diseases and the well-established healthcare infrastructure in the region.
