(PRLEAP.COM) According to a new series of reports on the European dental implant fixture and final abutment market by iData Research ( www.idataresearch.com ), a growing prevalence of local manufacturers and increasingly cost-sensitive consumer demographic is contributing to overall price deprecation and the declining market share of premium implants. Historically, premium dental implant companies have dominated the competitive landscape in Europe but have recently faced rising competition from the value and discount brands."The increasing pricing pressure in the market has led premium implant companies to levy significant discounts on their products in order to remain competitive," explains Jeffery Wong, Strategic Analyst Manager at iData Research. "Regions with a larger presence of value and discount brands have been impacted most heavily and this limiting effect on overall growth is expected to continue over the next several years."However, despite persistent price depreciation, both mature and relatively underdeveloped markets continue to generate moderate levels of unit growth, thereby mitigating the net effect on market growth. For example, the key development within the final abutment market is the rapidly increasing uptake of patient-individualized CAD/CAM solutions and focus on digital dentistry. Additionally, a growing number of local laboratories have emerged to produce and distribute CAD/CAM abutments, making them more accessible. Market growth within these segments will be driven by increased penetration in relatively underdeveloped markets, such as France and the United Kingdom.Recent improvements in manufacturing capability and product affordability have resulted in rapid adoption of the CAD/CAM abutments, which offer significant progression in aesthetics and clinical outcomes, relative to the stock and custom cast abutments. It is expected that the European market will continue to adopt CAD/CAM technology, generating consistent growth for the final abutment market.Straumann is the leading competitor in the European dental implant fixture and final abutment market. Straumann's success can be attributed to its comprehensive product portfolio comprising traditional implants and abutments, as well as offerings that include ceramic implants, full arch restorations, CAD/CAM abutments and regenerative dental biomaterials. Furthermore, Straumann has continually reinforced its leading position in the market with strategic investments in value and discount implant companies such as Neodent, Biodenta, Medentika, MegaGen and Anthogyr. Continued expansion through strategic acquisitions and partnerships will aid Straumann in maintaining its leading position in the European dental implant market. Dentsply Sirona holds the second leading position in the market, benefitting from a strong presence across all market segments. Other leading competitors include Nobel Biocare, Zimmer Biomet, CAMLOG, Sweden & Martina, Medentis, MIS Implants and BEGO among others.More on the dental implant market in Europe can be found in a series of reports published by iData Research entitled the European Market Report Suite on Dental Implant Fixtures and Final Abutments . The suite covers reports on the following markets: dental implant fixtures, final abutments, treatment planning software and surgical guides.The iData report series on dental implants covers the U.S., Japan, South Korea, Australia, China,India, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and 15 countries in Europe including Germany, France, the United Kingdom (U.K.), Italy, Spain, Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxemburg), Scandinavia (Finland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway), Portugal, Austria and Switzerland.
