Technological innovations and a rising demand for high quality dental fillings will stimulate Dental Filling Materials Market growth. The American Dental Hygienists Association states that 80% of the population in the U.S. suffers from periodontal gum disease and approximately 78% are subject to cavities by the age of 17, which increases the prevalence of dental disorders. Furthermore, dental caries is estimated to affect 60% to 90% of the population, increasing the requirement for high quality tooth fillings.
According to Global Market Insights, Inc., “Dental Filling Materials Industry size is expected to be worth more than USD 1.4 billion by 2014, with a CAGR estimation of 3.7% over 2016-2024.” Disposable incomes, increasing public awareness regarding oral hygiene, and the rising frequency of dental health problems amongst the geriatric population will catalyze the product demand.
