DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6gbglb/global_dental) has announced the addition of the "Global Dental Implants Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.
One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the rise in edentulous patients. The Global Dental Implants market has also been witnessing dentist collaborations with original equipment manufacturers. However, the proliferation of low-cost products could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The key vendors dominating this market space are Biomet 3i, Dentsply International, Nobel Biocare, Osstem Implants, Straumann Holding, and Zimmer Holdings.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Healthcare team said: "Dental tourism, a subset of medical tourism, is fast gaining popularity globally because of the low cost for dental procedures offered by dental clinics. India, the Philippines, and China are emerging as destinations for dental treatment due to the low dental procedural costs offered by dental clinics in these countries. Hence, there are increasing numbers of the edentulous population in the US and Europe travelling to these countries for dental treatments as they can save 60-70 percent of the dental treatment cost. Due to the emergence of medical tourism, several countries have upgraded their facilities and offer a world-class service to their customers. Several dental implant manufacturers have started focusing on countries in the APAC region. Thus, the growing popularity of dental tourism is an emerging trend that is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the market during the forecast period."
According to the report, in recent years, the steadily increasing population of edentulous individuals worldwide, which is more susceptible to dental problems, has propelled the growth of the Global Dental Implants market.
