Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024- 2036

Dental Composites Market size is expected to trace USD 140 Million by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of dental composites was USD 62 Million. The growth of modern society and the resulting dietary and lifestyle changes are expected to drive the worldwide market. Tooth disease, or dental caries, is becoming more common as a result of this and the world's rapidly aging population. 771 million individuals worldwide were 65 years of age or older in 2022, making up about 10% of the world's population.

In addition to these, Dental crowning and amalgam are known to be more expensive than dental composites. Furthermore, dental composites conserve the majority of the natural tooth in contrast to dental crowning, which necessitates removing the healthy tooth material to place the crown over it. The dental composites market is expected to be driven throughout the projected period by patients who would prefer to keep their natural teeth.

Dental Composites Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Global Market Share is Driven by Growing Dental Caries Incidence- An increase in dental disease incidence is anticipated to fuel dental composites market expansion by increasing demand and acceptance. According to the 2019 Global Burden of Illness Study, permanent tooth caries is the most common oral illness, affecting around 3.5 billion individuals worldwide. In 2020, the World Health Organization stated that primary tooth cavities affect around 530 million children worldwide.
    Because of urbanization and changes in living conditions, the prevalence of oral illnesses is rising in several low- and middle-income nations. The availability and affordability of sugary foods and beverages, inadequate fluoride exposure, and restricted access to dental healthcare services all contribute to this trend. The promotion of sugar-filled foods and drinks, tobacco products, and alcohol has led to a rise in oral health issues and other non-communicable diseases.
  • Growth in Government Programs Driving the Size of the Global Dental Composites Market- The National Oral Health Programme (NOHP), established in 2020 by the Indian Dental Association (IDA), aims to enhance dental health. The Child Oral Health Card, Corporate Oral Health Card, Family Oral Health Card, Special Privilege Card, Muskaan, and Platinum Oral Health Card are just a few of the cards that IDA offers as part of this program for examinations and preventive care. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) have worked together for the last 20 years to increase low-income Americans' access to dental care. Health centers have benefited from Section 330 grant funds from the HRSA Health Center Program (HCP), while state Medicaid agencies and CMS pay the costs of providing healthcare services. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports that between 2001 and 2020, the number of dental patients at HRSA-funded health centers increased from 1.4 million to over 5.2 million, and the number of dental visits climbed from 3.2 million to over 11.3 million.
  • Rising Rates of Smoking and Tobacco Use- The increasing use of tobacco and smoking, which can have a negative impact on tooth health and raise the incidence of dental issues, is another factor contributing to the expansion of the dental composites market. For instance, smokers have untreated dental damage, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Nearly 40% of persons who smoke cigarettes and are between the ages of 20 and 64 have untreated dental decay. Furthermore, nearly 43% of persons 65 years of age or older who smoke have lost every tooth.


  • Strict clinical and regulatory procedures are the main market barrier- The FDA, European Commission, and various local regulations are the factors limiting the market for medicinal composites. Clinical studies are costly and time-consuming when developing medical composite goods. Because of their crucial nature, several medical equipment are subject to strict regulations. The market's expansion is being impeded by strict rules and lengthy approval procedures. These goods must meet ISO biocompatibility testing criteria and be biocompatible, as they are intended to be implanted within the human body.
  • The main problems with dental composite restorations are their limited lifespan as a result of bulk/marginal fracture, secondary caries, and potential health hazards.
  • Overall, it is discovered that the failure rate for dental resin composites is well within the single-digit percentage range. As a result, the dental composites market is predicted to be somewhat negatively impacted internationally.

Dental Composites Segmentation

Composite Type (Nanofilled Composite, Microhybrid Composite, Bulk Fill Composite, Universal Composite, Flowable Composite, Silorane Composite, Giomer Composite)

Based on composite type, universal composite is expected to hold 30% share of the dental composites market by 2036. Dental fillings are used to treat a variety of dental diseases, including tooth decay and broken teeth. The rising demand for tooth fillings is thought to be the cause of these conditions' increased prevalence. For instance, in patients older than 40, about 80% of them have fractured teeth. Incomplete tooth fractures with intact pulps occur 9.7% of the time. This is attributed to a rise in the quantity of universal composite products made by major manufacturers. Additionally, by using universal composites, dentists can use fewer materials, which can expedite treatments and save time in the dental office.

Application (Dental Fillings, Dental Crowns, Dental Bridges)

Based on application, the dental crowns segment is estimated to hold 40% share of the global dental composites market during the forecast period. The need for cosmetic dentistry, particularly dental crowns, is being driven by a growing emphasis on appearance and aesthetics. Dental crowns can be used to make teeth that are discolored, uneven, or malformed look better, which can increase one's self-esteem and confidence. As per the World Health Organization's (WHO) 2022 Global Oral Health Status Report, oral illnesses afflicted up to 3.5 billion people globally, with three out of four affected individuals living in middle-income nations. Around 2 billion adults worldwide suffer from dental decay in their permanent teeth, while 514 million infants suffer from dental decay in their baby teeth.
