From their Executive Summary of the 2009 Implant Report: “The European dental implant market, comprising sales of dental implant fixtures, final abutments, and other tools in Italy,Germany, Spain, France, Sweden, the UK, and Switzerland, was valued at over $1.6 billion in 2008. Over the forecast period, moderate market growth will be driven by rising dental implant procedure volumes, fueled primarily by heightened patient awareness of dental implant treatments and increased clinical adoption of dental implant therapy. Market expansion will, however, be limited by a lack of reimbursement for dental implant treatment in the majority of
the countries covered in this report. Further restricting market growth will be the negative impact of the global economic crisis on patient spending patterns. In addition, smaller companies offering lower-priced dental implant systems have garnered a greater share of some of the larger European markets. As a result, the average selling prices (ASPs) of dental implants will decline through 2013 and the European competitive landscape will continue to change.”
