US demand for dental supplies will grow 5.5 percent annually through 2010 based on favorable demographics and a strong interest in cosmetic dentistry. The best gains will be found in ceramic fillings, clear or tooth-colored orthodontics, veneers and whitening gels, implants, new toothpastes and mouthwashes, and over-the-counter whitening products.
This study analyzes the $17.2 billion US dental supply industry. It presents historical demand data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by product (e.g., prosthetics, fillings, orthodontic appliances, veneers, whitening products, adhesives and cements, impression materials, bone grafting/tissue regeneration materials, pit and fissure sealants, prophylaxis paste, fluoride treatments, toothpaste, mouthwash/dental rinses, denture products, dental gum); and by raw material (e.g., metals, chemicals, ceramics, silica, polymers).
The study also considers market environment indicators, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 41 leading industry competitors including Proctor & Gamble, Colgate-Palmolive, DENTSPLY International, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Sentage, and Church & Dwight.
