The number of pipeline Dental products in 2021 saw a 105% rise globally when compared to Dental pipeline products in 2020, according to GlobalData’s pipeline products database. This compares to an 15% rise for all pipeline medical devices in 2021 compared to 2020.

The global Dental Devices market was worth $20.48bn in 2020 and is expected to reach $18.08bn by 2025, according to GlobalData’s analysis.


Dental Devices pipeline products by categories: Dental Bone Graft Substitutes & Regenerative Materials has the most devices

Looking at the device categories of pipeline products, Dental Bone Graft Substitutes & Regenerative Materials accounted for the largest proportion (10.26%) in 2021, followed by Dental Implants & Abutments (10.26%) and Orthodontic Materials and Products (10.26%).

Of the global medical devices market value, the Dental Devices market held a 4% share worth $20bn in 2021 and is expected to reach $18.08bn by 2025.

Dental Devices development activity: Advanced stage of development leads

Devices at an advanced stage of development (in clinical trials, in the approval process, already approved in Europe or the rest of the world) accounted for 47.37% of medical devices in 2021, compared with 45% in 2020. The number of devices at the In Approval stage inclined by 33% in 2021, when compared with 2020.

The In Approval stage is considered to be the period where the manufacturer is waiting for final approval from regulators, following completion of the required development steps.

A decrease in products awaiting approval would indicate less new products entering the market in the coming months, while an increase indicates more devices entering the market, posing a market share threat to existing marketed devices.


North America tops pipeline Dental Devices products activity

Comparing the number of pipeline Dental Devices products activity in different regions of the globe, North America held the top position (56%) during 2021, followed by Asia-Pacific (33%), and Europe (11%).

On a country level, the US had the most pipeline Dental Devices during the year, representing the largest share (54%) of Dental pipeline products. In second place was India (13%), followed by Singapore (13%).

New pipeline Dental medical devices: Expected to be approved by 2025

According to GlobalData, approximately 53% of pipeline Dental Devices in 2021 were expected to receive regulatory approval by the end of 2025. The leading categories for devices expected to receive regulatory approval by the end of 2025 was Regenerative Materials, at 10% of devices. Differences in regulatory approval timelines reflect the stage of development for a device, the device complexity or risk categorization (or device class) or if there are changes in regulatory oversight.

Advanced Biotech Products Pvt Ltd tops Dental Devices development in 2021

According to GlobalData, top ten medical device companies accounted for 41.03% of pipeline Dental Devices activity during 2021. The leading company for developing Dental Devices was Advanced Biotech Products Pvt Ltd with 7.69%, followed by envisionTEC GmbH at 5.13%.

Companies launching new medical devices are more likely to disrupt existing market share or are better able to defend existing share.

Company-developed pipeline products lead Dental Devices in development

Looking at the share of activity in terms of Dental pipeline products developers, company-developed pipeline products accounted for a 64% share of the Dental medical devices market, while institute-developed pipeline products held the remaining share.

The monthly average for 2021 saw company-developed Dental pipeline products account for 64% of pipeline products and institute-developed pipeline products account for 36%.
