Dental impression is defined as the negative imprinting of the teeth, soft tissue, and other structures inside the mouth from which the positive or accurate model of the damaged teeth or tissue is formed by placing them in a dental impression tray. The purpose of the dental impression material is to design the model in such a way that it will be fit over the dental arches.

Factors that drive the growth of the dental impression material market size include a rise in the incidences of dental disorders, increase in the need for cosmetic dentistry, and the emergence of the innovative material for dental impressions. In addition, an increase in the number of hospitals and dental clinics and technological advancements accelerate the dental impression material market growth. However, lack of dental awareness and high costs associated with treatment decline the market growth.

COVID-19 Impact

The coronavirus (COVID-19) was discovered in December 2019 in the Hubei province of Wuhan city in China. The disease is caused by a virus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which is transmitted among humans.

After its discovery in Wuhan, the disease rapidly spread to other parts of the globe. Moreover, this virus causes various symptoms in patients, which range from common symptoms to serious symptoms. For instance, common symptoms include fever, dry cough, and fatigue. However, serious symptoms include difficulty in breathing or shortness of breath, chest pain or pressure, and loss of speech or movement. Furthermore, the virus has high potential of lethality in the geriatric population. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization made an assessment that COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic. In addition, only a few vaccines received emergency approvals for COVID-19 prevention. Thus, social distancing is observed as the most important measure to stop the spread of this disease. Furthermore, to maintain social distancing, various countries across the world have adopted nationwide lockdowns.

The COVID-19 outbreak is anticipated to have a negative impact on the growth of the global dental impression market. owing to a decline in the number of visits to hospitals and clinics for dental purposes, leading to a reduction of the demand for dental impression materials. For instance, Dentsply Sirona reported that its net sales for the first quarter of 2020 were down by 7.6% or 4.3% in organic terms, due to low patient volumes and elective procedures. In terms of revenue and net sales, this downfall trend was observed in several other companies as well in the market. However, this is expected to be a temporary downfall, and the market is expected to resume growth in the future.

The global dental impression material market trends is segmented into material type, application, and end-user. The dental impression material market is segmented on the basis of material type alginate, silicon, polyether, and others. By application, the market is classified into restorative & prosthodontics, and orthodontics. By end-use it is categorized into hospitals, dental clinics, and research and academic institutes. By region, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

On the basis of material type, the alginate segment was the highest revenue contributor to the market, with 9.1 million in 2021, and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period owing to various advantages offered by alginates as compared to others such as ease of manipulation, low cost, a hydrophilic nature, and ease of pouring.

On the basis of application, the orthodontics segment was the highest revenue contributor to the market in 2021, and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period owing to the increase in the prevalence of endodontics disease across the world.

On the basis of end-user, the dental clinic's segment was the highest revenue contributor to the market and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period owing to an increase in the number of patients suffering from dental diseases such as endodontics, root canal disease, and others.
