Available languages


1.1 Definition and presentation

Dental prostheses are used to rehabilitate the oral functions of edentulous people by replacing natural teeth with artificially created elements. 

The denture market is made up of the companies that produce them and the operators that distribute them to the end customer. There are two main classifications of dentures: fixed or removable, partial or full. A key feature of these products is that they are considered as 'premium' products. For this reason, access to this type of product is strongly correlated to the economic availability of consumers. 

The global denture market was worth approximately $6.09 billion in 2018 and was expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0%, allowing the market to peak at over $9.71 billion by 2026. These growth prospects of the global market are closely related to the increase in the geriatric population, with a consequent growth in dental diseases. In terms of the geographical distribution of the global market, the primacy belongs to Europe with a value of €2.48 billion in 2018, followed by the United States. 

The Italian market also presents a very positive picture at present, with excellent growth prospects. The strength of the sector is undoubtedly the huge investments made in research and development that allow Italian companies to maintain a high level of competitiveness thanks to new technologies and innovation. Among the most popular innovations are 3D Printing and CAD/CAMD technologies. The positive impact of this trend of innovation, which has become widespread in recent years, can certainly be seen in the strong increase in the number of exports of Italian-made dental prostheses accompanied by a decrease in imports. 

Despite this, the number of laboratories active in the production of dental prostheses has remained relatively stable over the years. Sweden&Martina, an Italian company founded in 1976, is one of the most important manufacturers active in this market on a global level.
